Nursery Le Chalet

Early Learning School




St. George's nursery "Le Chalet" opened its doors in August 2016 to provide private personal attention and support to children aged 18-36 months.   

Our crèche "Le Chalet" sits in the heart of the St. George's campus in Clarens, surrounded by lush nature and magnificent views.  The spacious and specifically designed rooms and adventure playgrounds encourage play and learning with the guidance of our highly qualified bilingual teachers, fully trained in nursery education and in the Reggio-Emilia approach.
