Micro or Collective bilingual nursery?
Before you start researching bilingual nurseries in Paris, you need to start by understanding the difference between the two different types. This little glossary is here to help you:
Collective nurseries (crèche collective in French): These can welcome up to 60 children. It is controlled by the Protection maternelle et infantile (Maternal and child welfare). The children are taken care of by qualified people (nursing assistants, kindergarten teachers). The schedules match working hours.
The micro-nursery (micro-crèche in french): What makes these different from other nurseries is that they can only welcome a maximum of 10 children. The micro-nurseries are strictly controlled by the maternal and child welfare services and have to be authorized by the Department’s General Council. The people who work there have the certificate of professional aptitude (CAP) to work with young children and at least two years of experience or are qualified as a kindergarten assistant and have three years of experience. The schedules match working hours.
These two main types of nurseries can be public and run by the City Hall or private and run by charities or businesses.
