Nursery “La Farandole de Manigod”

Half and full-day places available for children from 4 months to 4 years old.

The Nursery “La Farandole de Manigod” welcomes children from the age of four months to four years in the heart of Manigod village. The professional staff are lovely and welcoming, and with a range of fun indoor and outdoor games and activities you can rest assured that your kids are having as great a time as you are, when you are out on the slopes.

Child Care Options

The nursery is open Monday to Friday.

Three options are available to holidaymakers:

  • Morning – 08:30 to 13:00
  • Afternoon – 12:45 to 17:30
  • Full day – 09:00 to 17:00

For the afternoon option the child must have had their lunch before arriving at the nursery.

In the case of overtime, any hour begun is due and must be paid on the same day.

Children under the age of one will only be admitted for a maximum number of three days and two half days per week.


Open for almost the entire year, the nursery makes for a great child care solution in and out of season. There are a number of places available for holidaymakers but please be aware that spaces are limited, so reserve your child’s place early to avoid disappointment.

Booking must be made in advance and must be made by post. Simply download and print the ‘Bulletin Inscription’ and ‘Réglement Intérieur’ documents found on the Manigod website. The forms must be filled in, signed and returned by post with a deposit cheque or for 30% of the total amount. If you do not possess a cheque book for a euro account it is possible to pay the deposit by bank transfer. The directrice of the creche will send you the account details by email following your enquiry.

Please note that even though a little English is spoken at the nursery the inscription documents only exist in French.

In the event of cancellation within 15 days before the start date the deposit will not be reimbursed.

Confirmation of registration will be made by phone by the nursery director or their assistant 15 days before the start date.

The balance of the payment is due on the first day of your child’s time at the nursery and must be made by cheque.

Remember to bring

Please provide a bag marked with your child’s name with the following items inside:

  • A set of spare clothes
  • The child’s blanket or comfort item
  • A plastic bag for soiled clothes
  • Nappies (four for a full day, two for a half day)


Meals will be provided by the nursery if the child has been introduced to all food types. If the child has not yet been introduced to all food types meals must be provided by the parents. Main meals should be packaged in small jars or tupperwares and desserts must not need to be refrigerated.


In France it is obligatory for your child to be vaccinated before they can attend a public crèche (nursery). Please note all vaccinations your child has received on the booking form and supply a photocopy of your child’s Vaccination Record. Required vaccinations are as follows:

  • Diphtheria
  • Tetanus
  • Poliomyelitis


In the case of illness only the nursery director has the authority to approve or decline admittance to the nursery.

In the case of your child becoming ill during their time at the nursery you will be notified by the staff and you must come to collect your child.

If your child has a contagious disease (eg. chickenpox) they will not be admitted into the nursery.


In the event of your child developing a fever during their time at the nursery the child care professionals can give your child Doliprane (Calpol). By signing the registration document you are giving authorisation to the nursery to give your child Doliprane if necessary.

No other medication can be given by the child care professionals without a prescription. If your child is on a course of treatment (eg. antibiotics) it is necessary to provide the prescription given to you by your doctor.


In the case of non admittance due to illness you can apply for a reimbursement. The illness must be proven by a doctor’s note.

Non attendance for non medical reasons can not be reimbursed.


Jewellery is prohibited at the nursery. The nursery declines any responsibility for any loss or damage of jewellery and of any accident caused by jewellery.
