Parents can choose to register their child at the unit "Ateliers Montessori" for attendance based on the school year including or not including the school holidays.

Attendance which includes the holidays, allows the children to attend the child life centre also during their school holidays.

The fees for this package still take into account two weeks' holiday per year, therefore days of absence from the child life centre do not entitle you to a reduction on the invoice.

As for the fees for attendance not including holidays, children may attend the child life centre only during the school terms.

Except during the Canton of Vaud holidays, Petites Étoiles is open all year long, including during the school holidays.

In general, the day care centre is closed on 1 May, during the four-day Ascension weekend, as well as between Christmas ans New Year.

In order to ensure an efficient organisation of the child life centre educational staff, we ask you to inform us one month in advance of planned day of absence by email to the following address :
