Our creche, L’Enfant Roi Dyapason is in the heart of one of the most dynamic district of Luxembourg city: The Cloche d’Or. Based in just a few steps away from the Crystal palace, which receive the PWC company, the creche is ideally situated for the 20 000 workers in the neighborhood. This structure is located near of the most important garden of Luxembourg city; with a surface area of 20 hectares, it is easily accessible from the creche and it will allow the children to appreciate some very nice walk during the summer.
The proximity of public transport is also very appreciable: many buses lines runs through the Cloche d’Or district and the “Tram” will soon join this transport network. Finally, a parking is available for the parents, this way it is very easy to park the car before you depose your child at the creche.
Ideally located and easily accessible, the L’Enfant Roi Dyapason creche, which is located in the heart of the Cloche d’Or district, is composed of three Nidos, two Children’s Community and one Children’s House.
The structure offers the children every chance to enhance their capabilities and their creativity by providing them an Art room, a sport room, a polyvalent room or a kitchen specially arranged for the children’s needs.
Although situated near of the most important city garden, the creche offers a garden over 500m², which is fully secured and fitted with very qualitative psychomotricity equipment’s. It also had a play area which is filled with a synthetic floor covering, away from the potential rainfall; this way the children will be able to enjoy these external spaces, even during the less sunny day.
Thanks to the Montessori education applied in our crèches, the child develops at his or her own pace, in accordance with the precepts discovered by Maria Montessori, an Italian doctor and educationalist who lived in the early 20th century. She designed an open, experimental form of education, based on observation.
With a conception of the child as a fully-fledged person constituting the future of society, she developed concepts such as the absorbing mind, sensitive periods, and the polarity of discipline and freedom. The child is free to choose his or her work, how long is spent on it, and how frequently it is done, but must be capable of inserting himself or herself into the crèche’s microcosm
Likewise, the child does not need an adult to correct his or her work: the teacher therefore plays an unobtrusive observer’s role. The child learns alone in response to his or her natural curiosity during sensitive periods, development phases during which the child is particularly receptive to a given field and learns easily.
Maria Montessori also developed the idea of mixing age groups within the same group. This is why, at our crèches, in the Children’s Communities, children from 18 months to 4 years of age rub shoulders every day. The youngest ones thereby learn through contact with their elders, who feel they have a mission to pass on things, and a certain level of responsibility.
Autonomy and socialisation are the two main goals of Montessori education, constituting cardinal points which our crèches never cease to emphasise. Consequently, it is important for us for the child to be integrated into the world he or she lives in and to find their place there.
