The daycare is a place where the child can practice various activities allowing him to make different experiences and discoveries, and to open on the world which surrounds him.
Play is essential to the child’s development and to the building of his individuality and personality. All the actions of the day are sources of activities. For example: washing hands, eating, tidying up games … Our role is to provide the young child with an environment and space to explore, experiment, build and play.
Free play is essential to the balance of the young child. Free activity can be played alone or in shared with others. The professionals leave at the children’s disposal games and educational material (construction games, farm animals, books, dolls, …). The child evolves in the game and in space at his own pace.
Motor and sensory activities
The motor activities offer the child a space that promotes the construction of the body diagram. Thus, the child experiences his various motor abilities, stages where the discovery of oneself, of the other, of the environment passes through the body. Professionals offer children different materials (blocks of foam with unevenness, balls, hoops, …) that they discover at their own pace.
These activities offer children new experiences. The child appropriates techniques, materials, gestures through which he can measure his abilities. The child is an actor of his work, his discoveries, his learning.
Different creative activities are offered to children: painting, drawing, cutting, collage, modeling clay, …
A closed and secure outdoor area is available for children.
Children can play in the open air, where new games (not used in the activity room) are used (tricycles, carriers, …).
