We are pleased to welcome you at our Nursery-Kindergarten “Crèche-Garderie du National” in Montreux! Our day care center is open for children from 3 months to 4 years.
The pedagogical team of the Garderie du National, specialized in Early Childhood Development, attends to all essential needs of children and provides wide range of activities, healthy meals cooked on site by a Chef, great care and a lot of joy to kids!

Philosophy of the daycare

The kindergarten is a privilege place to learn and our philosophy includes up to date activities allowing the children to develop their creativity, autonomy, confidence and socialization. We always respect the personality of the child and his personal needs. A great attention is given to his achievements and satisfaction.


A wide range of activities is suggested. An early awakening to music, painting, artistic expression, languages, singing, storytelling and general knowledge is certainly the key to well-being and assurance.
All activities are offered in a playful way.

and personal development

Children need to interact with others in a healthy, productive and positive manner. This is the way to prepare them to a successful future. Our daycare team is dedicated to offer the best attention in order to monitor and teach healthy ways.

The meals

Our cook is daily on site to prepare the breakfast, lunch and afternoon snack. Whether it is for the babies or the toddlers, we bring great care to well balanced meals. Vegetables, fruits are served every day. As much as possible, we buy organic food. Added salt and sugar is extremely limited. We also respect any special diet a child should have as per parents’ recommendations.
