Organised every year since 2015, the event is a celebration of Mother’s Day and Father’s Day and marks the important occasion of the birth of the first child.

A total of 50 births were registered in Monaco between 1st May 2018 and 30th April 2019, and the young children, together with their beaming parents, were welcomed at the Court of Honour by Mayor Georges Marsan and a host of councillors.

“The Town Hall is present alongside young parents from the birth of their child, and early childhood is more than ever at the heart of our priorities,” said Mayor Georges Marsan in his speech, adding that the reception was part of a policy put in place by the Communal Council for families. “In order to affirm this commitment, we wanted to dedicate a service to these actions: the Early Childhood and Family Service, led by Jean-Luc Magnani under the leadership of my dynamic assistant, Chloé Boscagli Leclercq. This Service is committed to responding to requests for crèche places and to ensuring that the government takes into account future needs in this area.”

The mayor then congratulated the happy parents before giving them a personalised gift, specially created for the occasion.
