You just settled down in Paris and you are looking for a bilingual nursery for your child? Bilingual nurseries, addresses and practical informations are waiting for you in this article!
Micro or Collective bilingual nursery?
Before you start researching bilingual nurseries in Paris, you need to start by making the difference between the two big categories standing in front of you. This little glossary is here to help you:
The collective nursery (crèche collective in french): can welcome up to 60 children. It is controlled by the The Protection maternelle et infantile (Maternal and child welfare). The children are taken care of by qualified people (auxiliary nurses, early childhood educators). The schedules match working hours.
The micro-nursery (micro-crèche in french): what makes the difference with the other nurseries is its welcoming capacity that is of 10 children maximum. The micro-nurseries are strictly controlled by the maternal and child welfare and have to be authorized by the Department General Council. The people who work there have the early childhood’ Certificate of professional aptitud (CAP) and two years of experience minimum or they have diploma of kindergarten assistant and three years of experience. The schedules match the working hours.
These two main types of nurseries can be founded and regulated by public (city hall) or private entities (association, company).
Why choosing a bilingual nursery?
1.) Like for any other types of nurseries, the children are taken care of by professionals who themselves are controlled by the Maternal and child welfare. Therefore, you can be off to work without having to worry!
2.) Your child will play with other children, which contributes in developing your baby’s alertness!
3.) He will have the luck to develop his linguistic knowledge at an early age.
4.) You’ll be required to pay a percentage of your daycare costs based upon your monthly income (if applicable)
