Introduction

The Service Foyers scolaires (Childcare Department) is devoted exclusively to providing extracurricular care for school-age children (3–12).

It is staffed by a team of dedicated professionals who offer your children the care, guidance and support they need. In their centres, children enjoy a cheerful and reassuring environment where they can grow, play, work, discuss, eat, run, rest, tinker and dance – all in an atmosphere that promotes tolerance and mutual respect.

The staff at the City of Luxembourg's Service Foyers scolaires spare no effort to provide a high-quality service in which children, along with their rights, needs and wishes, are the number-one priority.

Our mission

The Service Foyers scolaires seeks to provide high-quality care and support structures, suited to the needs of children and their families by pursuing the following objectives:

  • respecting the fundamental rights and basic needs of children and families;
  • promoting the development of children at both the individual and collective level;
  • developing a sense of belonging to a community (family, care centre, neighbourhood, city, etc.);
  • promoting responsible and independent behaviour that is respectful towards oneself, others, and the environment.

Our values

Children are welcomed into a healthy and peaceful environment built on our core values: solidarity, sharing, active participation, interpersonal communication, tolerance, acceptance of differences and gender equality.

All activities are planned, prepared and carried out based on the following principles:

  • use of fun methodologies, with play as the main tool for learning;
  • stimulation of children's creativity by having them initiate their own activities and projects;
  • participation in various cultural activities (environment, cultural visits, music, sports, theatre, painting, excursions, holiday camps, etc.);
  • communication mainly in Luxembourgish.

For your appointment with the head of your foyer scolaire, please bring the following supporting documents:

To set an appointment to register your child, please contact the centre in your neighbourhood.

Prices

We charge Chèque-Service Accueil (CSA) rates. Children who go to municipal foyers scolaires must have a Chèque-Service Accueil card.

Snacks: balanced, energy-boosting, and wholesome!

Your foyer scolaire provides snacks at different times of the day. These meals contribute to maintaining a daily nutritional balance, but are not a replacement for a child's main meals. A well-balanced and varied breakfast, lunch and dinner, combined with a healthy snack in the afternoon, contribute to a child's general health and well-being.

Objectives

  • Offer a choice of suitable foods to cover children's basic daily nutritional needs.
  • Offer fresh and wholesome products, without chemical additives:
    • organic foods;
    • regional and seasonal products, and fair trade products;
    • eco-friendly products.
  • Stimulate children's taste buds and introduce them to the joy of discovering new flavours.

We give your children

  • fresh fruit;
  • fresh vegetables;
  • cereal products;
  • whole-grain bread;
  • fresh dairy products;
  • wholesome spreads without additives;
  • fresh water.
