Bunnies class (crèche)

The children are between 12 and 20 months old in September.
1 year olds start in the crèche. The children will usually stay in the crèche until the end of the school year and move up in September. However, we ensure that when they turn two, they are able to mix with the older children at certain times of day (such as after 4:30).

Penguins class

The children are between 1 year and 9 months old and 3 years old.
The children in the Penguins class are in mixed age groups. Mixed age groups are ideal for the early years. The younger children are inspired by the older children, and the older children learn leadership skills and cement their learning by showing the younger children what to do.
We organise the children’s learning activities in small groups, so the children will always be given age-appropriate opportunities for development.

Giraffes & Lions class

The children are between 3 and 4 years old.
That class will have to groups:
– the Giraffes, for the children born between January and August.
– the Lions,  In the French curriculum the children born between January and August are in “Petite Section de maternelle”
