Childcare Stärnschnuppe Kriens/Luzern

Our childcare center was founded in the year 2000 in Kriens when child care solutions in the region were rare. Not only parents from Kriens, Horw and Lucerne, but
 also from the cantons Ob- and Nidwalden appreciate the great location close to highway, the train station Mattenhof Kriens and public transport.

Our day nursery is open from Monday till Friday for children from 3 months and older. There are three groups: one baby group where the smallest benefit from special attentiveness and a quiet surrounding. Then there are two groups for children from 18 months onwards. Our staff is well trained and dedicated to the kids. The daycare center is open to private persons and
 enterprises too. At the moment, there are some places available. Our location convinces with a generous, comfortable and childfriendly equipment and above all – a lot of space to play. There is even an on-site playground and garden.

The Stärnschnuppe follows the official guidelines of the Swiss Association of Day Nursery (kibesuisse), verified by guardianship authorities of the community of Kriens. The day nursery is operated by the KITA Care ltd., which is responsible for the strategical lead. We welcome you for a personal visit to receive a first impression.

Our philosophy

All kids are different. They smile, play and talk in their own way. They are interested in different things. We use our energy to discover and appreciate the differences. We do not want to make them similar.

Our team is well trained and experienced. We would like to make sure that your child spends an enjoyable and encouraging time. It is our aim that you know your child is in caring and professional hands, while you are at work or doing other duties. Your child will benefit from new social inputs 
and its education is enhanced.

We are not a bilingual nursery. But we are convinced, that your child will benefit from its mother tongue learned at home and Swiss German as a second language, which is quickly learned at the Stärnschnuppe. It may already be a first step for the integration in the Swiss neighbourhood.
