October 2017

Groupe Babilou daycare centers will be at the Signal de Bougy for a unique Halloween experience!

It’s the first time the Signal de Bougy and Groupe Babilou join forces to organize a Halloween party: come join us and take the “Creative Spooky Halloween Tour” which was especially designed for the party.

In a magical and fun atmosphere, your children will venture on a playful and creative journey through a haunted and spooky obstacle course with many stops on the way.

With the help of the Cap Canaille Rolle team from Groupe Babilou, children will dress-up, join the Halloween parade and during craft stations make their own witch or wizards hats.

Children will also get to enjoy some ghost and goblin sensory activities… watch out though, you never know what could happen!

And finally, for a special treat, a “Halloween Cupcake” workshop will be open to children aged 2 ½ to 5. But beware! Places are limited and you must put your name on the Booo! list to participate.  Fifteen trick or treaters every 30 minutes!

The entire journey should last around 30 minutes and families can register from 10 am to 2:30 pm with a CHF 5 fee per child. These activities will be organized in the Rolle room of the restaurant.

For more information and to register, please contact us at 058 568 31 50 or by email at the following address: info@signaldebougy.ch. http://www.signaldebougy.ch

First Baby & Kid Planet Fair for the Babilou & Cap Canaille daycares

Babilou & Cap Canaille daycares of the Groupe Babilou network met for the first time at the French-speaking Switzerland’s Baby & Kid Planet fair, an important event for future parents and new parents in the Lausanne region.

Babilou Mies, Cap Canaille Rolle as well as Cap Canaille Morges daycares took turns at the fair in Beaulieu Lausanne from October 6 to 8 to present their educational program, their approach to bilingualism and answer families’ questions.

While the youngest children had fun exploring our obstacle course, the older ones took part in our contest to win a free invitation to attend a parent-child educational workshop in one of daycares organized in collaboration with one of our educational partners.

Our teams also went around the fair to meet the other professionals on associative or professional stands and to discover their activities. Yoga, baby massage, rugby for the little ones, and more… enough variety to satisfy our many families and give us ideas for future partnerships.

What was the goal? To offer you a wide variety of parent-child workshops in 2018!

We warmly thank the hundreds of families and the many stands who came to meet us and hope to see you soon in our daycares!

Baby & Kid Planet, who are they?

Baby & Kid Planet is a trade fair for families catering to children 0 to 4 years of age. It is held every year at Expo Beaulieu Lausanne and presents a wide range of products, services and workshops for children.


The Babilou family is growing!

We are pleased to announce that the Cap Canaille bilingual daycares have decided to join the Babilou Group!

This choice was motivated by different reasons, including the sharing of common values of respect, team spirit, quality and diversity; the place given to families as first educators of their child; the choice of a pedagogical approach that builds self-esteem in children and encourages them to learn to be independent; while respecting each child’s individual pace.

With six daycares now in French-speaking Switzerland, the Babilou Group wishes to support more families in their quest to balance their family and professional lives, by offering places in daycares located close to home, the workplace or on the home-work journey.

Some information about the Cap Canaille daycares

Founded in 2007 in Villars-sur-Glâne in the canton of Fribourg, Cap Canaille quickly stood out from other daycares by offering children a pedagogical approach which integrated English/French language learning.  To help parents balance in their professional and family lives, Cap Canaille daycares are open all year  from 6:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.  This is a real step forward in the balance between professional and family life!
