Department Project

It is based on the philosophy of supportive care for children's development.



Therefore, the care is centred on the rhythms and needs of the child, it is to provide support during care, adapt the environment to promote the comfort and the well-being of the child. Parents are called upon early by the team to take care of their baby during the hight point of the day (changing, bathing, skin to skin, etc.)


We organise regular meetings between several parents and a nursery nurse to discuss topics such as the return home, the notions of nursery, babywearing (carrying the baby in a sling), etc.
