Monaco’s sovereign family attended a new micro-crèche for children – A Farandola – in the principality earlier this week. Made possible thanks to a generous private sponsor, the concept is part of a wider approach to tackle over-crowded services in Monaco.
Prince Albert, wife Princess Charlene and their two children – Prince Jacques and Princess Gabriella – all headed to A Farandola at Les Villa des Pins in Monaco on Tuesday 14th November. Housed in the same complex as two of the principality’s other micro-crèches, the 127sqm space that was formerly an apartment has been completely redesigned and equipped to facilitate the needs of up to 10 children.
Private donator Oleksandr Boguslayev has entirely funded the works, having expressed a wish to contribute to projects in favour of young children or la petite enfance.
Monaco has a growing need for crèches and with the next major establishment not expected to be completed until 2021, the nation and its government are looking for alternative solutions, such as the micro facilities, to meet demand.
