Maison Relais Larochette

The crèche, the day care centre and the ‘Bëschcrèche’ are located at three different sites in Larochette and welcome children from the age of two months to twelve years. The main focus is on providing the best quality care for the children during the working hours of the parents, both during school hours and during the holidays.

The children's individual stage of development as well as their different cultural backgrounds are taken into account and activities are adapted accordingly. In this respect, multilingual education has a high priority, also within the framework of a very close cooperation with the parents.

As for the day care centre, in addition to the care work, which includes homework help and various activities (sports, creative work, science, music, etc.), there is a very close cooperation with the school, for example in the form of project work (language, nature, etc.) or the joint organisation of festivities. Educational partnerships with external specialists and a cooperation with various local institutions are also an important component. The organisation of the Christmas market and the pensioners' party are just two examples.

Our work methods

The purpose of the day-care centre is to provide mentoring and supervision of children outside of school hours as well as during school holidays. The children are first mentored in the mornings and then collectively accompanied to school. At lunch, the children are provided with well-balanced meals by the nearby youth hostel before receiving help with homework in the afternoon. Furthermore, special opening hours have been arranged to help parents who work unconventional hours, i.e. shifts. Upon request, children can be supervised in the mornings before shifts. During school holidays, the day-care centre organises complementary holiday activities on top of its usual duties.

The day-care centre and outdoor kindergarten staff consists of 31 educators who supervise and mentor children all day long whilst offering a wide range of activities.

Registration normally applies to a whole school year and needs to be renewed every year.

Lunch service

The meals delivered to the different venues of the day-care centre and outdoor kindergarten are carefully prepared by the local youth hostel of Larochette. The kitchen staff has many years of experience of accommodating groups and specifically caters to the needs of the day-care centre.

As the day-care centre considers a healthy diet and the origin of food as part of its pedagogical mission, the meals served to children are diverse and well-balanced. Consequently, many of the ingredients used are locally produced, seasonal and/or ‘fair trade’ certified.

As part of the daily lunch routine, our educators encourage the children to take a close look at their food and ask questions. Where are the ingredients from? How are they prepared? What’s healthy and what isn’t?

During holidays such as Christmas, Carnival or Easter, it is also common for the children to be invited into the kitchen and lend a helping hand to the staff. The kitchen staff of the youth hostel are happy to explain the different steps to the children and answer to all the food-related questions they might have. They may even create a new dish together!
