The Service Foyers Scolaires (Childcare Department) organises educational activities for children aged 3 to 12 after school and during school holidays.
The core mission of the Service Foyers scolaires is to complement your child's development and learning with non-formal education. Each childcare centre is a soothing, supportive, stable, welcoming and stimulating environment that offers a host of educational activities and projects. A key feature of the centres is their configuration: each one has activity rooms that children can explore on their own and engage in the activities that interest them most.
The work of the Service Foyers is organised by two operational centres: the Foyers scolaires (childcare centres) operational centre coordinates supervision after school and during school holidays, and the Centre d'animation pédagogique et de loisirs (Creative Learning Centre – CAPEL) runs Aktioun Bambësch – which hosts activities during school holidays – and organises educational events and projects. CAPEL is a centre of expertise in learning through play and theatre. It often serves in an advisory role in working groups on issues related to childhood and educational approaches in preparation for the implementation of interdisciplinary projects.
The staff of the Service Foyers scolaires help promote children's well-being and their physical, mental and emotional development by applying their expertise in caring for, listening to, supporting and stimulating children. In the right setting, all children can flourish and develop to their full potential.
Our mission is to operate in a way that continually advances inclusive values, with 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 educational approach is based on the following values: respect, safety, trust, empathy and good will.
Our staff are eager learners who embrace introspection, and they harness these vital skills to guarantee that all children are welcomed and supported in a healthy, comfortable environment that fosters solidarity and sharing, active participation, interpersonal communication, tolerance, acceptance of differences and gender equality. Our work is inclusive.
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.

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.
- 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.
