Rockids becomes Luxembourg’s 2nd largest private manager of crèches and day care centres.
Luxembourg, 20 May 2022 - Rockids, the childcare specialist in Luxembourg, announces the acquisition of 6 new facilities from the company La Luciole, and thus becomes the 2nd largest company of its type in the country.
Rockids is a major provider, with recognised know-how in the care of young and older children, and a strong educational ethos based on caring, positive Montessori teaching methods.
With the acquisition of these 6 facilities from the La Luciole group, Rockids strengthens its presence in Luxembourg. It now has a total of 24 facilities – crèches and day-care centres – which can accommodate nearly 900 children aged 0 to 12 years.
La Luciole shares the same values and the same demand for quality. This family business has been in operation since 1997, and has a pedagogical approach in line with Rockids' values.
In this way, the group is demonstrating its strength and how it works to meet its ambitions. These 6 new structures – located in Schifflange, Kirchberg, Rollingergrund, Fentange and Limpertsberg – also allow the group to complete its territorial network throughout the country, bringing it even closer to its customers.
Myriam Filali, CEO Luxembourg said: "We are delighted to be able to welcome the teams from La Luciole. They share our solid values, and working together to make a success of these acquisitions will undoubtedly strengthen our presence in Luxembourg. With this acquisition we will increase our ability to look after the youngest children and help the older ones as they start their school careers. Rockids is a group that, more than ever, knows how to manage ambitious growth objectives, while maintaining high levels of quality and seriousness."
Christian Mitchell, chair of La Luciole said: "A new chapter is opening for these 6 locations, and joining La Maison Bleue’s network offers new opportunities. It also guarantees that this activity will continue in a group that shares a common vision in a profession which is in constant evolution. We would like to warmly thank the teams for these years we have spent together, working and giving of ourselves. We are firmly convinced that the children, their families and the teams will continue to be treated with professionalism and kindness.
