THREE QUESTIONS FOR CAROLINE VAURY, FOUNDER OF LES RECRES
Caroline, can you give us a quick introduction to your background and explain what inspired you to create Les Récrés Le Bon Marché?
I am above all a mompreneur!
After 10 years of experience in cosmetics and fashion marketing, I decided to undertake a project that was close to my heart.
I have two children who were taken into a collective crèche in Paris, and who benefited from remarkable edutainment. I myself took great pleasure in organising many parties and outings for them and their friends, each time sharing with them my passion for manual work (model making, modelling, paper creations, storytelling, sewing, etc.). My professional experience in the event industry has taught me the basics of stage design and logistics, and my training.
Why did you choose Le Bon Marché Rive Gauche to help you with your project?
The Bon Marché Rive Gauche was an obvious choice for me! First of all, I feel aligned with the values of this incredible place, such as the pursuit of excellence, originality and beauty in a broad sense.
The Les Récrés project at Le Bon Marché also allows me to pay special attention to the Service to families. I want to listen to each child so that he or she can be an actor in his or her own way during the workshop, and to the parents who are looking for a caring and personalised framework.
Le Bon Marché Rive Gauche trusted me for the complete renovation of the Espace Enfant. It was the ideal playground for an entrepreneurial profile!
How do you create your workshops?
Les Récrés is not just a daycare centre... Our credo: learning while having fun!
I rely on two strong convictions to build each workshop. First of all, play as a starting point for all our activities. And of course, curiosity through workshops that encourage the acquisition of artistic, scientific and motor skills and that allow the development of new ways of thinking and building, in a wide variety of fields...
