Overview

​The Foundation for Educational Services (FES) currently operates thirteen government-subsidised childcare centres across Malta. Childcare centres provide care to babies and toddlers aged between three months and three years. All FES-run childcare centres are registered with the Department of Quality Standards in Education and follow the National Standards for Child Day Care Facilities (2006). Operational hours are from 07:30 to 16:00 hours.

All children are offered with a personalised service of quality care. Working in partnership with primary caregivers, each child is empowered to develop a lifetime of learning in a fun, caring and​ stimulating environment. Parents are offered the opportunity to invest in their child’s future through positive learning opportunities, social experiences and personal empowerment.​


FES Childcare centres aim to create an environment that:
  • is immediately welcoming through warm, positive interactions between staff, children, parents and visitors;
  • fosters a genuine sense of caring, security and well-being;
  • encourages each child to devel​op to his or her fullest potential;
  • ensures the individual’s physical necessities of health, safety, nutrition and quality care which are protected through adherence to mandatory regulations and common sense;
  • identifies needs of parents and children and supports and strengthens the family unity through responsive communication and programmes.

In accordance with the National Standards for Child Day Care Facilities (2006), FES employs members of staff who form part of a highly competent, qualified and warm team trained to work with children. The centres encourage parent/staff communication and work to establish effective relationships in order to share information and responsibilities. Staff members are supported with on-going professional development to enhance their skills. Excellent staff-child ratios are maintained thus ensuring that each child is receiving the very best care, attention and comfort.​
