Jardin Urbain LC is open all year round, and the children can attend on a full-time or part-time basis. In fact, we believe that a flexible rhythm, including academic activities, rest, family, and leisure time, allows children to be more relaxed, more concentrated and thus more disposed to learn.
The group of 12 mixed-age children is guided by a teacher and an educator, as well as by many special guests throughout the year. The specific schedule of each child is personalised: it is possible to opt for mornings or afternoons only, or for full days. This means that even parents who work full time can offer a flexible education to their children!
This new form of education is beneficial to children because it allows them to discover different subjects, without stress or pressure, guided by experts in the field. They can advance at their own pace. Parents are actively involved in their children’s education, because they are the ones deciding subjects are prioritised, as well as who will be in charge of the different parts of the learning project. Finally, for teachers, flexible shooling is positive because they have the opportunity to work in a warm and welcoming space with support and resources necessary to practice their profession the way they dreamed of.
