Daily school life


A studious, happy school climate

Cycle 1 in kindergarten is the structural foundation of every pupil's school career. During his first years at school, the child - who must also learn to become a pupil - will be permanently imprinted by his daily environment.

That's why we're working to ensure that it's as high quality as possible, both in terms of the relationships that bind us to them, and in the setting that welcomes them every morning.

To make this possible, the school day is highly structured, in line with children's needs and rhythms.

A typical day at 123 mon école


In keeping with Montessori's pedagogical approach, lunchtime is both an opportunity to share a moment of conviviality and tolearn the rules of living together at the table.

For the past 12 years, our lunches have been prepared by the Ekilibre caterer.

Most of our products are organic and from sustainable agriculture.

By offering new choices, Ekilibre also helps to educate children's tastes, while providing them with the nutritional values they need to thrive.

A playful approach

More color, more taste, more presentation! We encourage children to try new flavors and enjoy eating.

Vegetarian or meatless meals

123 mon école gives families who so wish the option of serving meals without animal proteins or with fish only, in keeping with household habits.

Mealtime is also...

The lunch box

For parents who wish to do so, it is also possible to bring their child's packed lunch, whether for health reasons or by personal choice.

Educational continuity

Mealtime is a continuation of Montessori learning:autonomy is encouraged at lunchtime. Children take turns setting the table, clearing their plates, and wishing each other "Bon appétit!

Living together

Slowly but surely, the team accompanies the children at lunchtime so that they learn to eat with their cutlery, cleanly and with respect for the other children around them. Mealtime is a time of conviviality, when politeness is encouraged!

Nap Time

Nap time is for all children in pre-school and the first year of kindergarten.
Organized from 12:30 to 2:30 and 3:00 pm, children can take the time they need to rest.
Each child has his or her own bed in the nap room, with a sheet and blanket provided by the school.

Educational immersion

This event is offered to all families in the spring: parents come in small groups to share 1 hour of classroom life. This highlight of the year enables parents to observe their child in his or her school environment, and also to measure the child's level of involvement, concentration and precision in the activities carried out at school.

Parents in the school

In addition to the festive events organized every year, parents of kindergarten children can come and spend time in their child's classroom. For example, they can talk to the children about their profession, share the specifics of their native culture, read a short story in their mother tongue, or accompany a school outing to the library or the farm! These little incursions into the school remind children that we walk hand in hand with our families!

Festive highlights!

Every year, the school celebrates a number of festivities that add a joyful and convivial touch to the school day.

On the program:

  • internal school events, such as birthdays, Halloween, International Day, Mardi Gras, family celebrations...
  • events with parents: of course, the end-of-year celebration with the Christmas vacations and the June party, to end the year on a high note. Occasionally, parents are invited to small vernissages to discover the children's works, specially hung in the school for the occasion.

Parenting tools

The families of123 mon école have several tools at their disposal to help them understand how our kindergartens work and follow their children's progress step by step:

  • a comprehensive welcome booklet
  • the annual calendar of school events
  • a digital liaison book to receive weekly publications from the educators
  • a Montessori learning follow-up booklet, in digital format
  • regular newsletters, providing parents with a wealth of resources and ideas for family activities.

Taking care of our students also means taking care of our schools
