Registrations for EVE and School and Summer Camp

In the wake of the Open Day, held on Saturday, 4 March 2017 (see Echo No. 264), EVE and School launched into an enrolment campaign on 6, 7 and 8 March.

Once again, this year, we registered a great number of applications, and most of the groups are now full.

The Nursery is already full, including the groups for babies (4 months to 1 year old), walkers (1 to 2 years old), and 2- to 3-year-olds.

Regarding the Kindergarten, which welcomes 2- to 3 year-old children enrolled for mornings, as well as 3- to 4-year-olds enrolled either for mornings or for full days, there are still places available in the morning groups.

Finally, the School for children aged 4 to 6 (Primary 1 and 2) enrolled for mornings or for full days, will be composed of three classes of around twenty children in 2017–2018 (one class of P1 and two classes of P2). All of these classes are currently full.

If you are interested in a place in the morning groups of the Kindergarten (2- to 4-year-olds), please contact us to enroll your child (

We also encourage parents who wish to enroll their child in one of the groups that are already full (Nursery, Kindergarten for full days, or School) to get in touch with us. Even if these groups are currently full, we can put your children on a waiting list and accommodate them in the event of a withdrawal or departure during the school year.

Registrations are open for the 2017 Summer Camp!

The CERN Staff Association’s Summer Camp will be open for 4- to 6 year-old children for four weeks, from 3 to 28 July. Registration is offered on a weekly basis for 450 CHF, lunch included. A maximum of 24 children can attend the camp per week.

This year, the various activities will revolve around the theme of the Four Elements. Every week, one of the elements will be the core of all activities and explored through cultural outings, arts and crafts, stories, music, sports activities and scientific workshops, with or without special guests.

Registrations opened on 3 April for the children of CERN Members of Personnel. For all other children, registrations will start on 24 April.

The general conditions are available on the website of EVE and School of the CERN Staff Association:
