TSH Prince Albert and Princess Charlene were welcomed by Mayor Georges Marsan and his deputies, including Chloé Boscagli Leclercq, responsible for Early Childhood and Families, as the Testimonio Crèche was officially inaugurated following its opening on Tuesday, January 3.

Located in the east of the Principality, in the Elsa Tower of the Testimonio II building, this new crèche is the thirteenth childcare facility in the Principality for children aged 0 to 3 years. Designed in an optimal way combining space, comfort and technology, the facility benefits from a terrace, several courtyards, bright and functional spaces as well as quality furniture adapted to the different ages of the children.

A great novelty, a “garden of scents” has been set up to promote the awakening of toddlers. The Mayor said that “improving the quality of life of the Monegasque and resident population, listening to our constituents of all ages, meeting the expectations of beneficiaries and families are part of the Council’s daily municipal concerns.”

Georges Marsan thanked all municipal staff and the Prince’s Government for the completion of this project. The inauguration continued with the blessing of the crèche by Monsignor Guillaume Paris, then with a visit to the premises presented by the Director of the building, Karine Le Roch, and the Head of the Early Childhood and Family Service, Jean-Luc Magnani.
