Meals

“I discover the pleasure of the eyes, flavours and sharing.”

Meals are a moment of conviviality and exchange. They are taken in the classroom with the Educator and the Assistant, with light music to create a harmonious and relaxing atmosphere. Children are empowered during this ritual of class life: on a rota basis they will be responsible for setting the table, serving water and bread, and cleaning up… like grown-ups!
Two formulas are proposed:
Lunch box: children bring their meal
Meals are provided by the school: (balanced and organic)

SIESTE-ECOLE-DES-ORCHIDEESAfternoon nap

“As I sleep I grow better.”

Every child has specific needs. Some do not take naps at 2 years old, others still need them up to 5. Thus, naps will be offered to all children whose parents have indicated the need for their child to take a regular or punctual nap.
The nap schedule will be evolutionary. The nap room is fully equipped to allow excellent rest for every child.
