Creche in Brussels?

(3 Posts)

Hi all,
We just moved to Brussels and are looking for some advice on a creche. Our daughter is one and we'd like to start sending her to an English & French speaking creche a couple of mornings a week (my husband has just started looking after her full time but it would be good for him to have a little time off). We live near Petillon metro (not far from Montgomery) and I'm working at Schuman. Would anyone have any recommendations?
Thanks in advance for your help!

Bilingual creche? Well if they existed, I wouldn't use in Brussels, simply as most "bilingual" schools here are full of children who speak neither French nor English at home and far too many struggle to master either as there is not a strong enough English or French environment, with often only the teachers speaking the target languages.

I'd go for a French occasional creche, such as la Farandolienne, either at Etterbeek or Auderghem locations.

Then I'd add on BCT parent-child groups for the English social life.

I'd also be looking for a maternelle right now, many have already done enrolments for children born between 1st January 2012 and 31st October 2012, who will start school during next school year.

Hi, a small detour worth considering for those of you looking for a creche in Auderghem, Brussels I would like to recommend a new comer in town and god knows we need more 'seats' for our little ones as Brussels is seriously lacking of space with makes our quest miserable. I know well the girl who runs this small nursery in a beautiful house with incredible garden. I think they provide only organic food. Anyway have a look for yourself www.petitbouh.com I recommend that private nursery warmly for the staff in particular. J
