The “Jardin de Capucine”, a new childcare facility built exclusively for CERN personnel, including users, has opened its doors on 1 November 2011. It is very conveniently located at only a few hundred meters from CERN entrance E, and it offers childcare facilities for children from 4 months up to 4 years of age.
CERN Management has specifically earmarked 4 places (of the 40 available) for short term child care. Short term should be understood as any period of one week to up to 3 months. A place and can be booked in advance for any period in 2012 by contacting directly the crèche. Places will be allocated on a first come/first served basis.
These 4 places have now been available for a few months, but none has ever been used. It is clear that should this situation continue, this short term child care will be discontinued.
Do not hesitate to directly contact the “Jardin de Capucine” if you need more information.
