My son is learning 3 languages (and I'm a linguist, as well). You're on the right track! Immersion is the most powerful technique to learning languages. By immersion, I mean using nothing but that language. Your daughter may be switching from one language to another, but as long as you always speak Swiss-German to her (and nothing else) and your wife always speaks Spanish (and nothing else), she is being immersed in those respective languages.

You can set aside a specific time/lesson for her English. Songs are particularly effective for little ones to pick up vocabulary! Also, if you live in the United States, she'll probably pick up English pretty easily. I suspect the same goes for Spanish. The most difficult, then, is the Swiss German -- so I would make it a point to speak that to her as much as possible.
