Our founders

Foster a passion for their dreams

At Douces Maternelles, we provide all the sources of educational inspiration, to individually welcome all children, offering them a suitable and inspiring universe.

We celebrate intelligence, on each occasion, to foster their autonomy, creativity, full expression, responsibility, self-confidence, listening to others and cooperation...

To do so, we believe that each of us play our part: from the beginning, our history is written collectively in a respectful co-education way, where parents and tutors, are involved to gather all the right ingredients to achieve their present and future success. May the dreams of children flourish, as well-nurtured individuals, they will evolve into enlightened and dedicated citizens of tomorrow.

Encouraging autonomy everyday

Children gain both skills and social abilities. Each child is guided to become autonomous and to make choices through Maria Montessori's motto: “Help me to do it by myself”. Child's abilities are fully respected to serenely find his way to autonomy.

Building the trust bond

Believing in one’s abilities boosts inner security feelings and self-esteem, creating a constant and mutual bond of trust with others. In our schools, everyone makes sure of that, towards both with external individuals and internal members of our schools.
