I am Erica Hofstetter-Cust, a CELTA certified English teacher from Vancouver Island, Canada and the founder and manager of Custom Kids.
20 years ago I set out on an 18 month adventure in Switzerland which resulted in building a permanent life here with my Swiss husband, Markus and our three amazing daughters. Sienna, who is 17 and our 14 year old twins, Raia and Taiven are lucky to be growing up bilingual!
With a flare for managing as well as being an admin rock star, Custom Kids is thriving with locations in Ehrendingen and Zurich (new as of August 2020!)
In my free time, I love reading, hiking, skiing, dancing and traveling 😍
