Places are still available, there is still time to register!



Welcome to the Creche and School of the CERN

By enrolling your children in the Crèche and School of the CERN Staff Association, you give them the opportunity to thrive in a privileged environment that offers a diversity of cultures and nationalities.

From 4 months to 4 years old your children attend the Crèche and, at 4 years old, they join the School and begin their schooling by following the programme of the first and then the second primary class (equivalent to “moyenne section” and “grande section” in France).


The open-days of Saturday, March 7, 2020 have been cancelled because of the recommendations related to Covid-19 but this virus will not prevent us from presenting you our beautiful structure!

CAROLE DARGAGNON, the headmistress made a live at 10 am via our FB page. She presented you the organization of the Garden of Particles, its pedagogy and the project of the new buildings for the next school year.



We would like to inform you that the CERN Staff Association's Le Jardin des Particules structure is moving to new premises at the start of the school year 2020-2021. The reason for this is the future Science Gateway project that will be built, partly on the current site of the Jardin des Particules.

The new buildings will be ready by 25 August 2020. The interior space will be larger and more pleasant than today.

We will still be at CERN in Meyrin. We will be along the particle square between building 33 of the reception and entrance B.
