Practical Info

Groups

We accept up to 10 children per group. There are two permanent teachers as well as additional staff for specialised weekly workshops (music, theatre, cooking).

We balance each group in terms of age in order to provide optimal opportunities for interaction between the children.

Schedule

Morning Sessions

Morning playgroup hours are from 9am to 12pm every day. Children can be dropped off starting at 8:45am, and picked up at 12pm. A healthy snack is served around 10:30am.

Full Days

We offer a limited number of places for full days Monday - Thursday.

Full days are from 9am to 4pm. Children can be dropped off starting at 8:45am and picked up between 4 and 4:15pm. Children bring a packed lunch, which can be heated at lunch-time. We provide a healthy desert, organic milk and water. We also propose fresh fruit and water when the children wake-up from their nap.

For the good integration of the child and for the stability and cohesion of each group, we ask that children attend playgroup a minimum of three days a week.
