Understand the needs of parents

Tomorrow early, from kl. 9.30 to 12.30, the Departments Families and Toddlers arrange a family day in the Vernet district. “We want to open our structures to families to make our public services known and highlight the work of our colleagues,” adds Valérie Soudry.
On the site of the Family Department, visitors will be able to find information about leisure centers, after-school reception, traffic education center and school catering. “The two school canteens present at the Buissonnets and Mallard schools,” sums up Valérie Soudry. Families never come. They will be able to see where their children are eating. »
