Our After School Centre, which is warm and welcoming and is on a human scale, is located in a residential neighbourhood right in the heart of Strassen. The borough of Strassen, near the capital, is attracting a good many foreign residents. As a matter of fact, 59 % of the inhabitants are not from Luxembourg and they represent a hundred or so different nationalities. The borough of Strassen, which is very dynamic, offers high quality of life through its prestigious infrastructures and its green setting. Moreover, as it is well served by public transport systems, Strassen enables workers to easily get to neighbourhoods like Kirchberg, Cloche d’Or or the downtown centre of Luxembourg-Ville.
Our After School Centre, which is in a fine old character house in a wooded park covering 2,300m2, hosts children from the Maria Montessori School outside classroom hours. For reasons relating to both comfort and safety, it is on the same site as the school. Consequently, the children are on-site for all the activities that they decided to undertake. The staff consists of teachers and teachers they are used to having contact with in class, in order to ensure a convivial family atmosphere where the children can blossom with complete peace of mind. The pupils also benefit from a wide range of activities: music, artistic, culinary and manual activities, outings in the park, free play, and relaxation areas.
Vanessa has a state diploma as an early childhood teacher and has often been involved in socialisation projects. Her experience in emergency shelters allows her to share her view of how rewarding relations with other people can be. Attentive and energetic, Vanessa is keen to pass on to the children the human values on which our school is based.
