Sunflower nurseries and Foyer de Jour centres are based on the educational principles of the Maria Montessori pedagogy. Sunflower a family owned business, was the first nursery to use the Montessori pedagogy in Luxembourg, when it was established in 2001.
Children are welcomed from 3 months to 4 years old in nursery and then in the Foyer de Jour centres from 4 years old.
Montessori teaching methods aim at developing the independence and self-confidence of the child. Based on the principle that it is during the first 6 years of a child’s life that his or her mind expresses its full potential, the methods used are designed to help your child to develop at best in a secure and motivating environment, promoting learning and autonomy.
Nurseries welcome babies from a very young age, from 0 to 2 years, children are then welcomed in Montessori “classes” favourable to their development.
