ABC Puériculture crèche ‘Le Temps des Ours’ is based in the former Nicolas Flamel jewellery and watchmaking technical college, in the 3rd arrondissement.
We welcome 47 children every day, on a full or part-time basis. The facilities are composed of a series of dedicated spaces, with names which nod to the building’s former life: ‘Baby Time’ and ‘Time for Little Ones’ have space for 16 babies. ‘Les Méridiens’ welcomes slightly older toddlers, while ‘Big Ben’ is the dedicated section for the oldest kids.
The professional team includes a Nurse and Director and numerous teachers, childcare assistants and nursery helpers, assigned to different groups.
Teaching at the centre is based on discovery, experimentation, independence and language skills, as well as a special emphasis on helping parents with their responsibilities. Workshop sessions include music, baking, playing in the paddling pool, painting and more, tailored to the children’s ages.
Le Temps des Ours also has a PE room and an outdoor playground with lawn. When story time comes around, the ‘Cocoon’ room is packed full of books !
