PMI / CAF
At people&baby, all our daycare centres are accredited by the Protection Maternelle et Infantile (PMI) and approved by the Caisses d'Allocations Familiales (CAF).
The Protection Maternelle et Infantile (PMI) service
Placed under the authority of the President of the Departmental Council, the Maternal and Infant Protection Service (PMI) is responsible for ensuring the health protection of young children.
The PMI therefore plays an essential role in the care of young children. It is involved in projects to set up daycare centres, providing technical support and expertise to developers and local authorities in the development of the project (childcare plan, staff numbers and qualifications, operating regulations, safety conditions, etc.) until authorisation to open is obtained.
To obtain authorisation to open, the establishment is visited by the doctor in charge from the maternal and child protection service. The purpose of this visit is to assess whether the premises and their layout meet health and safety requirements, taking into account the age and needs of the children being cared for.
Once they have opened, childcare facilities are subject to inspection and monitoring by PMI professionals.
The Caisses d'Allocations Familiales (CAF)
To develop its network of daycare centres, people&baby works closely with the Caisses d'Allocations Familiales (CAF).
The Caisses d'Allocations Familiales inform people&baby of the needs in an area. They also check the viability of the project and finance part of the facilities. The people&baby teams and the CAF technical advisers work together to define the best childcare project for the families.
Every year, the people&baby daycare centres are inspected by the Caisses d'Allocations Familiales department, which ensures that they comply with the legislation and check the quality of the service. By complying with all the conditions laid down, in particular the national scale of family contributions, all people&baby daycare centres are approved by the CAFs: parents therefore benefit from rates equivalent to the municipal rates for a place in a multi-accueil centre.
