Training at Familycare Basel

It is important for us to integrate our apprentices into all work processes from the very beginning. Every year, we offer apprenticeships in our seven daycare centers, where apprentices are given plenty of space for valuable experience, varied care tasks and professional guidance. They are individually supported and specifically prepared for their professional life by being accompanied in everyday life and in regular instruction sessions. 

Our seven daycare centers are run according to the guidelines of the umbrella association for childcare kibesuisse (Kindertagesstätten Schweiz). A well-trained care staff, a child-friendly environment and a proven pedagogical concept build the basis for our high quality work. Vocational trainers are employed in every daycare center; they in turn are supported by an experienced senior vocational training officer. A superordinate Head of Training ensures the implementation of consistent and progressive training standards and the quality assurance of our training.

We currently offer the following training positions:

  • Specialist Childcare EFZ
  • Higher technical school Child education (HF)
  • Backlog (Art. 32) FaBe Child EFZ
  • Shortened basic education FaBe Child EFZ
  • Pre-apprenticeship Care

Cross-border, we also offer the possibility of completing in our daycare centers, under professional supervision, the recognition year, which concludes the German training as a state-recognized educator.

Study-accompanying practical semesters for students of social pedagogy, social work or early childhood pedagogy are also welcome.

 

In the area of childcare, the holistic development of children is crucial. Childcare specialists EFZ accompany children attentively and benevolently in their everyday lives. They support and promote the individual development of the children according to their needs and interests. They offer the children a variety of learning experiences in the linguistic, cognitive and motor areas and thus promote their personal development and social behavior. Childcare specialists EFZ design everyday life according to age and situation with guided activities, free play, individual and group activities. They cultivate a trusting cooperation with the child's relatives and with industry-specific professionals. 
The training to become a childcare specialist EFZ lasts three years. Apprentices who have reached the age of 22 and already have two years of professional experience in this field can complete the shortened basic education FaBe Child EFZ or the back-log training (Art. 32) FaBe Child EFZ. In the case of very good school performance, the vocational school-leaving certificate (Berufsmaturität) can be attained during the training period.
