Children are at a crucial time of their development during early childhood, and Crèches de Belgique believes in educational play through teaching. Crèches de Belgique has over ten years’ experience in the early childhood sector, and consists of 17 crèches in and around the Brussels area. “Despite being part of a big group, our crèches each have a strong sense of identity and maintain a close relationship with families and each individual child. Our staff are highly qualified – many in the medico-social fields – and our crèches have the highest standards of hygiene, safety, pedagogy and training,” says Chantal Van Hoey, managing director of Crèches de Belgique. The day nurseries offer bilingual teaching in French and Dutch.
