An Early Years Extension for the Campus des Nations

It is in the first years of a child’s life that the desire to learn is forged. This is why, at the Campus des Nations, we plan to expand our Early Years facilities and create greater unity with the other divisions.

By bringing the sites together at Saconnex, our purpose-built Early Years Extension will double the space that our learners currently enjoy today and facilitate interaction between children of different ages, increasing mutual learning and camaraderie. Moreover, while students will benefit from smoother transitions as they progress in their school journey and parents will enjoy greater flexibility thanks to improved logistics and reduced administrative procedures.
