  1. 5. The survey doesn’t include children who will start Maternelle in September 2012 and will probably not use the busses, navettes or even the TRAIN but the parents will have to drive them twice a day to Mamer! What about children aged 3 who will go to Garderie? Will they stay at the Garderie in Kirchberg (close to their parents) or will have to move at such an early age to Mamer as well?!?!?!
