A Typical Day at School

The Gift School is open from 8 am to 6:30 pm on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. On Wednesdays the school is open from 9 am to 5 pm. In keeping with the recommendations of the French National Education Board, children are therefore in class for 24 hours each week. Class time takes places between 9 am and 12:30 pm and between 2 pm and 4:30 pm. Children can be dropped off at school between 8 and 9 am, free of extra charge.

A daycare service is offered between between 5 pm and 6:30 pm on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Parents sign up in advance for daycare service which is invoiced in 30 minutes slots.

With respect for research on chronoeducation, the morning sessions are longer than afternoon sessions, and take place between 9 am and 12:30 pm. Morning sessions are dedicated to structured and academic learning. Afternoon sessions are dedicated to various activities, such as theater, art, physical expression and outdoor activities.

A special area is prepared every day for naptime and children of any age can use this time to rest and sleep.
