Under 2-year old activities in Lausanne or area

Hello,
I have been living in Lausanne area for some time now and struggling to fine activities for my 15 months old baby as most of the activities are reserved for older children.
I would like for her to have a contact with other toddlers as she is becoming a little bit shy as a result of spending most of the time just with me and not interfering much with other people on a regular basis.
Ideally I would like for her a place where she is supervised by an adult while she plays with other children. Just once a week for 2-3 hours would be sufficient, I believe.
I am also interested in places where children are supervised by mums.
Any advice is welcomed - Thanks!

I used to go to La Maison Ouverte with my older son, was nice to go to on a rainy day. They don't have anything outside, but that had lots of toys for older and younger children. If I remember, they are only open the afternoons, but not everyday. And I think they are closed during the school vacations. Probably best to call if you are interested for the hours.

Some other suggestions:

Kidspace in Lausanne have a little garderie which you can use just one morning per week. They are English speaking too. http://www.kidspace.ch/

Baby Gym do activities for this age range - there is one in Lausanne.
http://www.babygym.ch/index.html

Vallee de la Jeunesse have a nice hang out area for mums and tots.
http://www.valleedelajeunesse.ch/ind...arents-enfants

Espace Prevention do some classes for parents and young tots too.
http://www.espace-prevention.ch/lausanne/

This place in Lausanne does craft activities for parents that you can take your kid along too (but have a feeling it is for non-walking tots).
http://atelier3petitspoints.ch/

Maison de Quartier in Lausanne does a playgroup some mornings per week.

Hi

My son 16 months old and I would be happy to meet up for our children to play.
I live in Pully. I have just joined a play group in Pully for Monday mornings. If you would like to join email me.

All of the above places that people put down are great. I work at Atelier 3 Petits points and we have had parents with children up to 2 years old.
