Two months before the opening of Planète Enfants & Développement's first crèche in Phnom Penh, our team is busy on the field to welcome the children in this innovative space. This crèche will indeed mark the first step of a great project to develop the reception and the quality of services for the little ones in Cambodia.
The Planète Enfants & Développement nursery is scheduled to open in mid-April 2020. We will welcome up to 40 children from 6 months to 4 years old. In this secure and family-oriented space, which is conducive to the development and stimulation of children through play, parents will have a special place. We wish to organize parent-child activities because we believe that coeducation is essential: nothing can be done without the parents!
What makes our crib original?
The center will be accessible to middle class children in Phnom Penh. Our objective is to reinvest the profits of the structure, from 2021, in the creation of a training center dedicated to Early Childhood. This center, which is innovative in the country, will allow us to train educators in good care practices as well as in the development of young children.
New ways of caring for young children, a challenge in Cambodia
With the rapid economic development of the country, many Cambodian women have entered the workforce in recent years, which has disrupted traditional family practices. Group childcare is rare, often private and expensive. Due to lack of income, many young working parents have to rely on grandparents who often feel overwhelmed in helping to raise their children.
Our ambition: to develop a new model of day care in Cambodia, respectful of children's rhythms, replicable in the country and adaptable in other countries of intervention.
We'll tell you more soon!
