    "A well run garderie, sometimes very busy and noisy (but then most daycare centres are), lots of activities organised for the children, rooms for afternoon sleeps" (RR, Dec 2010)

    Comments:
    "I have used this crèche for both of my children and can not recommend it highly enough, it is safe, clean and the staff are brilliant. Two bedrooms with cots and beds for the children to sleep, very flexible and will try to cater for your babies routine. Places are limited and snapped up very quickly so you might have to go on a waiting list until a place becomes available. First class!" (RR, Dec 2010)

    Comments:
    "We decided to send out 3 year old daughter here (she should have gone to the local school with only 15 children in from the age of 2 – 11), but decided that it was important for her to be used to a larger school so that moving up to college would not be such a big thing for her. The reputation of the primary teacher is excellent and the classes are well structured with lots of outdoor play (weather permitting) and arts and craft. Bunk beds for the younger children to sleep in after lunch if necessary. Very happy with our choice and our daughter seems to be fitting in really well" (RR, Dec 2010)

    Comments:
    "If your child is not happy at the state school then it might be a solution to put them into the private school, smaller classes, more help and individual care – a mid way between crèche and school. Private school joins the state school every day for lunch in the state school canteen. Will only take children if dry" (RR, Dec 2010)

    "The public school in Chauvigny will not take children mid term so if you want or need to start your children in school before they are 3 then the private school could be the answer. Children must be dry to be accepted" (RR, Dec 2010)
