Is the school rhythm at a private nursery school different from that at a public nursery school?

The academic rhythm of a private nursery school may differ slightly from that of a public school.

Days may be a little longer, but the overall school rhythm remains 4 days a week, with no school on Wednesdays.

Length of school day

Some private nursery schools offer more flexible opening and closing times. What's more, they can offer before and after-school care. This gives parents greater scheduling flexibility.

School calendar

Unlike conventional elementary schools, private nursery schools may have different school calendars. They may have different vacation periods, additional vacations or specific teaching days.

Teacher-student ratio

To facilitate student learning and provide better support, private nursery schools often have smaller classes and a higher teacher-student ratio. This allows teachers to devote more time and attention to the child. Additional activities and resources.

As a rule, private nursery schools have additional resources at their disposal, such as improved facilities adapted to children's needs, enriched physical education or arts programs, more frequent field trips and varied extra-curricular activities.

Pedagogical approach

From the age of 2, children are true explorers of the world around them, and need to be free to move around and explore their environment. This is why some private nursery schools adopt specific pedagogical approaches, such as the Montessori method, Reggio Emilia, which differ from the more traditional approaches used in some public nursery schools.
