Sounds like a great book for people with small children.

Had to do a double-check on "creche" though -- here are the definitions as presented by dictionary.com -- when I hear creche, I think of definition #1 -- obviously your reference is #3!

1. a small or large modeled representation or tableau of Mary, Joseph, and others around the crib of Jesus in the stable at Bethlehem, as is displayed in homes or erected for exhibition in a community at Christmas season.
2. a home for foundlings.
3. British. a day-care center; day nursery.
4. Animal Behavior. an assemblage of dependent young that are cared for communally.

Yah, i thought of baby Jesus lying in a crib in a barnyard!!!

My older daughter attends an all girls school that goes from Grade 4 (about 9 yrs of age) to Grade 9 (about 14-15 yrs of age) that is completely integrated as far as their activities are concerned. They do grade appropriate curriculum and then all their extras such as drama, music, art etc are done as an entire school. It focuses on being a girl, being a group and learning as girls do. It has been absolutely fantastic - she went from a struggling C student to the honour roll 2 yrs in a row now and the attitude has left the building.
So I'm with ya 100% on a school/daycare/nursery that focuses on the whole child, not academia all the time. I'm looking forward to sending my little princess there in a few years.
