My name is Erica Hofstetter-Cust and I`m from Vancouver Island, Canada.

I am a CELTA certified English teacher and I have been living in Switzerland for 19 years.

My husband Markus is Swiss and we have 3 wonderful daughters - Sienna is 15 and our twins, Raia and Taiven are 12.  Our girls attend the local Swiss school but are growing up bi-lingual.


I think it`s important for my children and yours to continue developing their English skills and meet new friends!


CUSTOM KIDS was founded in October 2012 and has been growing steadily ever since! Our team of dedicated and fantastic teachers make CUSTOM KIDS a wonderful place to learn and explore the English language.

A little trivia for you: CUST is my maiden name and I loved the idea of "customized" classes for kids so we combined the two and CUSTOM KIDS was born!

Why choose CUSTOM KIDS?

Our teachers are qualified native English-speakers from Canada, U.S.A and England.

We are dedicated and creative in helping your children grow their English skills and have FUN at the same time! We offer a variety of FUN classes and Playgroup with competitive prices. Some families drive up to an hour to get to us because our classes are so great!

Have a look at our "parent comments" if you want to know what others think about us. Feedback is always welcome, we love hearing about much your children enjoy coming to our classes and Playgroup!!

Last but not least our teachers are very supportive of each other and our team meets regularly as a group - we like to have FUN together in and outside of the classroom!

Teacher quote: "Our centre is special because we focus on English skills. Groups are small and, according to the child's age, we encourage and improve their understanding, speaking, reading and writing of English in a FUN way. Our children enjoy coming here and benefit from meeting others who speak their language!"
