Our building

Our school and nursary are housed in the new, environmentally-friendly, building 664 which combines comfort and energy-saving and is situated close to the CERN reception.

This 1,336 m2 building—with triple glazing, a reversible heat pump, double flow ventilation and solar panels—has two levels, each with a kitchen and a dining hall.

There is a dedicated outdoor play area in front of Le Jardin des Particules for your children to use during break times.
