The commission for the allocation of places in the nursery

In addition to the policy of opening new reception structures, the Paris City Council has opted for transparency in the procedures for assigning places in daycare centers. These procedures were voted on by the City Council.


The commission for allocating daycare places is chaired by the mayor of 10my district, or its delegate in charge of Family and Early Childhood. It is made up of district councillors, the Maternal and Child Protection service (PMI) and the Paris Solidarity Space (EPS) service, as well as the territorial director and the directors of the municipal early childhood centres, who are joined by the directors of the associative daycare centers. an advisory capacity.

This Commission meets on average six times a year.

Place allocation criteria

Places available in the reception structures of 10my are reserved for district residentsdepending on the sectorization that is applied to municipal and associative daycare centers, and All files are studied without exception..

From the start of the 2023 school year, the allocation of daycare places is based on a rating system, more readable and more transparent. The principle is the following: each child, depending on her situation and that of her family, is assigned a number of points that determines her position on the admission list at the nursery school in her sector.

Depending on the availability in each center for the different age groups of children, the allocation of places by the Commission is carried out based on the qualification of the files, which is based on three main families of criteria: professional situation of parents, family income bracket and social and family situation.

This objective and transparent rating system allows:

  • better consideration of the specific situations of each family;

  • an improvement in the information transmitted to parents;

  • maintaining a necessary social balance in our nurseries.
