About Us

Our Mission

Our mission is to provide a safe and entertaining childcare service that caters to the needs of both children and parents. Our focus is on creating a safe, warm, nurturing and learning environment for our children to develop a healthy self-expression and become life-long achievers. We aim to give the best care and help each child develop in the best way possible.

Our aim is to lead and provide support for our early learners, age 3 months to 3 years, to build their educational and communicational foundation, preparing them for their next educational steps. Children are divided in groups according to ratios which are 3:1(ages between 3m to 1yr) , 5:1 (12m to 24m) , 6:1 (24m to 36m) or mixed group of 6:1.

The children engage into carefully planned yet unstructured activities where they can interact freely whilst learning through play. We plan our themes together, keeping in mind each child's interests and needs. Our day is packed with fun filled activities, which further more include outdoor play and naptime. Potty and diaper changing is provided for throughout the day. We enjoy engaging Role play and Story time amongst other activites, to enable the children's cognitive, gross motor, sensory, mathematical, social and emotional skill development. We also teach our little ones everyday basic skills that will definitely help them when they start kinder school.

Our mission is to always provide our little ones with love and care and to make them feel safe. We value all children as individuals and we offer them all the necessary respect and attention with care individually. We work hand in hand with parents to provide individualised activities, to help each child flourish in the best way possible. Communication is a very important point for us, as we strive to give you the best feedback possible.

We understand that intially parting with your child is difficult, but we promise to assist you with this transition. Having years of experience, we are confident that we shall be able to ease the discomfort of this change in routine, for both you and your little one.

Our Core Values


We emphasize on safety at our childcare centres. We make sure that all our children are safe at all times in our care and our carers are all properly trained in health and safety.


We plan activities according to each child’s interests and needs, that in turn will enable them to learn through play.


Our aim is to prepare our little ones for their next big educational step after their time spent with us, at L’Ecole.

Team Work

We work as a team at L’Ecole and help each other to achieve the best results. Our carers embrace teamwork and help to introduce it to the children to demonstrate the importance of working in teams, this will be valuable throughout their lives.


We keep several communication lines open with parents/guardians. Communication is important for us to improve our services as well as the importance for you to be kept informed on your child’s progress, at all times.


L’Ecole Childcare Centres opened their doors at their first Centre at 145 Bartholomew Street, Hal-Qormi in 2011. Our inspiration for opening a childcare centre was our devotion for childcaring and to answer a growing need in the community to offer safety and care to children. L’Ecole Qormi centre has a cosy, safe and happy environment. Our team consists of carers with years of experience and dedication.

In 2014, the government’s Free Childcare Scheme was introduced to encourage parents to enter or re-enter the labour market, making childcare more affordable for parents. The scheme led to a boom of both supply and demand for childcare centres. All our centres are registered and licensed; people may apply with us by enrolling in the free childcare scheme or by fee.

In 2015 we opened our second branch in 93, Triq Frans Sammut, Haz Żebbuġ, our largest childcare centre! L’Ecole Żebbuġ is stationed close to the Haz-Żebbuġ town centre and opposite the St. Ignatious Primary school. The atmosphere at L’Ecole Żebbuġ is happy, safe, and homely. We aim to be one happy family for you and our little ones. Our team of carers is a perfect combination of experience, different ages and cultures, making it a fun, learning atmosphere each and every day.

Our third branch is located at 6, Triq Il-Hsad in Siġġiewi. L’Ecole Siġġiewi started operating in September 2017. L´Ecole Siġġiewi is state-of-the-art with a colourful, stimulating, safe, bright and airy atmosphere.

In January 2020, we opened the doors of our fourth centre. This time in Msida, at 30, Triq Gioacchino Navarro. L’Ecole Msida is perfectly situated close to the Msida harbor. The Centre is designer made and equipped with everything the children and the carers need for entertainment and education during their days at L’Ecole.

In 2020, our two flagship childcare centres opened for the first time, first L‘Ecole Blata L-Bajda, and later that year, L‘Ecole St. Julian‘s. Our centre in Blata L-Bajda is situated at Triq Joe Sciberras, at the round-about, next to Saint Martin‘s Institute of Higher Education. Our newest centre, L‘Ecole St. Julian‘s is situated in Lapsi Street next to the Parish Church. Both centres are ultra-modern, one of a kind childcare centres on the Island, designed with the Nordic approach in mind, equipped with the best available resources around, with the children‘s needs as top priority.

We at L’Ecole Childcare Centres’s follow the Nordic approach for early childhood education. The Nordic approach applies a social learning that emphasizes on play, relationships, and outdoor life, and presumes that learning takes place through children's participation in social interaction and processes. The Nordic approach indicates a strong social pedagogical rather than early education emphasis. The approach has become synonymous with a holistic, children’s rights-based approach to pedagogy, grounded in democratic values.

We operate on a first come first serve basis at all our centres, so if you’re interested in any of our centres, feel free to give us a call and we will schedule a meeting and a walk-around the centre of your choice.
