The Early Childhood Center has set up a private, open and free welcome for children up to 6 years old and their parents.
Since Tuesday, the Early Childhood Center in Grand Auch has opened a space for parents and their children from 0 to 6 years old. “For parents, you just have to push the door,” says Early Childhood Center Director Muriel Tabarrant. We come when we want, when we want. There are no time constraints, we don’t pay anything. No registration is required, and anonymity is guaranteed.
This place for kids and parents, the first LAEP run by Agglo, is overseen by two professionals, Carine Job and Delphine Rolland, but the primary goal of such a place is precisely to let things happen on their own! “We are there to accompany and explain the young women. It’s a matter of creating a joyful atmosphere so that meetings and interactions take place.” This is the responsibility of the parents or a family member: This reception is not a day care centre.
LAEP occupies a large room where there are mats and toys to occupy the children, with seating for parents. But if it’s about sharing moments together, it’s also a good place to learn how to reach out to other kids. or other parents. “It is also an opportunity to discuss with early childhood professionals, for parents as well as for future guardians,” says Pierre Jorda, vice president in charge of this file.
The device is funded under the CTG framework established between the Gers, Café, and MSA communities. Thierry Saint-Luc, the head of the café, emphasizes the social character of such a place. “It’s not just the kids playing with the parents or with each other. The parents will have a place where they can meet to share experiences and opinions.” There are actually LAEPs in Gers, but nothing about Auch. This device is part of a regional project: in addition to the early childhood home, two other places, urban and rural, have been proposed to make life easier for parents.
