"Helene has created the most beautiful daycare environment that i have ever seen. It's indoor and outdoor areas are designed to encourage learning, adventure and a love of nature.
Helene nurtures very caring relationships between all the children. Her demeanour towards the children is calm, suitably authoritative and wonderfully caring.
At Le Cacon, the daily schedule always involves thoughtful learning tasks that are imaginative, topical and suitable to the varying age groups to challenge every child. We love receiving the daily photos and updates of these activities too!
Helene has cared for our son from the age of 9 months and he loves his daycare days immensely. We could not wish for better care for our little boy."
"Helene from Le Cocon is a fantastic educator! She has created a centre that is amazingly organised, clean, fun and filled with love and care. All the activities and meals are well planned and extremely healthy. She makes early childhood education and children’s safety her primary focus, and does her job so well. Helene is kind, reliable, respectful, and caring. She's truly the best!
While I’m at work, my mind is always at ease because I know my daughter is in a safe place, learning and having fun with her friends. Thank you so much for going above and beyond! Thanks for being a positive impact on Mila's life! Thank you for providing a friendly atmosphere for all children where they can learn and grow, and above all that they love to be in!"
"Helene has been a wonderful influence on my son's life. He started with her when he was 12 months old and has just turned 4. My son still has the same little friends with her that he had when he started 3 years ago. Helen's retention rate is higher than many other family daycares as families don't want to lose her as part of their child's life.
Helene spends many hours focusing on each child's developmental stage. She gets them playing creative games, encourages them to do puzzles by themselves very early and has some amazing natural games to help them with reading, maths and science. To balance out the learning, the children meditate every day before sleeping and play make believe fun games. Helene is very flexible with her schedule and will change the activities if she sees that the children are interested in something that day or would like to continue the game they are playing.
The children spend a lot of time in the garden planting, watering and picking food for their lunch. They often help her prepare the food and it is always healthy and organic.
Helene has so much love for each child. She is acutely aware of any changes to a child's disposition or behaviour and works with the parents to support them. She is consistent with her behaviour management techniques and my son has learnt respect and compassion.
She also speaks French to him which has helped in his language development and he understands everything she says.
I cannot recommend Helene enough!"
"Our family loves Helene’! She has an amazing way of combining both learning & fun! Since our son has been in her care, his eating has dramatically improved, he is able to communicate his feelings more fully and he is growing significantly in his independent play - not to mention he is now speaking French! We are honestly blown away at our sons development! We are very grateful to have found Helene’!"
Helene has created a beautiful, caring learning environment. She is exceptional in teaching children in empathy, couriosity and independence. The amount of care she gives my child is amazing. I feel so lucky that my child is able to go to Le Cocon.
