What is a playgroup and how does it prepare your child for kindergarten?

The playgroups consist of a constant number of 10 to 12 children aged between 3 and 5. They meet regularly twice a week for 2,5 hours to play, sing and do handicrafts, which prepares them for the start in kindergarten.
They are looked after by a specially trained playgroup teacher and an assistant. Foreign language speaking children get the chance to be exposed to German before kindergarten, which helps them integrate and get used to a new language. The Kuckuck playgroups are supported by the City of Adliswil, the Protestant and Catholic Churches of Adliswil.


The playgroups have their rooms in the Protestant parish hall in the Sihlpark, Kirchstrasse2, Adliswil.


Twice a week at 2,5 hours each: 155.- CHF per month
(Each additional sibling 125.- CHF per month)

Forest group: 95.- CHF per month


The dates of the holidays for the schools in Adliswil apply to the playgroups also. Please find the current holiday dates under

Parents’ participation

The infrastructure for the playgroups are being made accessible for free through the protestant church. In return the parents are kindly requested to participate in an annual cooking event for the elderly people of the community. This very appreciated event wouldn’t be possible without the help of the parents, accompanied by the playgroup teachers. It is a very valued service from one generation to another! Should parents not be able to attend the event with their own group, they are asked to catch up on their duty with another group.
