Before returning to work, you want to find a place in a crèche for your baby and it is now that everything is at stake. Schedules, prices, neighborhood, educational project, staff and availability , so many parameters to take into account and so little time left! So that your search does not turn into a nightmare, support services exist. Thanks to their large network, they help you to find a place in the best nursery without delay .

Childcare: a choice to make from the first months of pregnancy

Keeping your child safe is one of the first complicated decisions parents have to make. Who should I entrust it to to make sure everything goes well? How to manage this momentary separation? What if baby cries? What if he needs cuddles? Who will be there for him? So many questions that are not always pleasant, especially when they remain unanswered.

However, sometimes you have to look for a place in daycare very early: upon leaving the maternity ward and sometimes before birth . This is often the case in metropolises where there are numerous structures, but face even greater demand. For some time now, rural areas have also been experiencing the problem of lack of availability in micro-crèches or nurseries. parents quickly saturated. A success that leads us to wonder what makes crèches so popular in France?

If this is not your case, you probably have a mother in your circle for whom finding a place in a crèche has proven to be complicated and difficult. Do you want to talk about it? Tell us about Facebook Or Instagram ! At Élhée, we are always available to listen to mothers and answer their questions, when possible.

The crèche baby boom and its many advantages

If we tell you childcare arrangements before 3 years , will you answer? Grandparents, nanny or daycare , and yes, that's about it! France between 2019 and 2020 had just under 250,000 childminders and some 450,000 places in crèches for around 2.2 million children under 3 years old. Figures which give a small idea of ​​the difficulty encountered in finding the ideal place of reception.

The pleasure of a personalized welcome

The child enrolled in crèche has a small locker or coat rack to store their belongings (change of clothes, bibRond, pacifier, liaison notes with the team)... Also, upon each arrival, they are welcomed by a childcare assistant or another qualified member of staff , who takes the time to talk with their parents; he didn't sleep, ate little, you will come pick him up earlier, how was the last day... The nursery is above all a dedicated reception time .

An incomparable place of learning for children

Nursery rhymes, songs, games, toys, varied and supervised educational and fun activities, discovery of language and fine motor skills, community learning... The nursery with its complete and rich infrastructure and its team dedicated to early childhood, is the ideal place for promote exchanges, curiosity, learning and later, the installation of a certain autonomy .

A secure mode of care

Enrolling your child in a crèche gives them access to a secure space, entirely designed for them and children aged 0 to 4. Adapted both in terms of equipment (changing tables, diapers, deckchairs, bottle warmers, dormitories and nap beds, etc.) surfaces (floor mats, cushions, etc.), materials (soft and washable), ergonomics, standards or processes , it is one of the safest solutions for dropping off your child for a few hours or a few days a week without worrying.

Organization above all

It's a fact, you can count on the crèche to always be there. Once you have managed to find a place, all you need to do is organize your schedule with the team childcare and follow him. Who drops baby off and at what time? Who is coming to look for him? What days will he be present within the structure? Once validated, this information is confirmed to you and no longer changes. Very comfortable and reassuring operation for parents.

A not so expensive choice

Since everything is included in the price (diapers, meals, activities, equipment and later, outings) the cost price is ultimately not always as important as one might imagine.

The Happy Company solution

Child playing at nursery

Simple, fun and reassuring, the crèche is therefore an attractive method of care for children and parents alike. His biggest flaw ultimately? The difficulty of finding a place close to home and a sufficient number of hours of care.

And for other types of childcare, who should you contact?

Collective reception or individual reception, it is most often a choice of the parents, by desire or by conviction. Also, some addresses are always useful for registering your baby in an early childhood establishment.

First of all, remember to contact your Family allowance (CAF). She will be able to provide you with a list of reception centers and professionals available, but also inform you about the various existing financial aid such as the free choice of childcare supplement (1) (CMG).

Also go to town hall or at the Family Info Point (2) in your region, to obtain all the information necessary to have your child looked after for the day, half-day or later, during school holidays.

You can also get closer to your Departmental Council , which has the addresses and telephone numbers of each reception structure near you.
