The university campus has three nurseries for children of UNIL and EPFL staff* and students: la Croquignole, la Croq'cinelle and le Polychinelle, which accept children of from two months to four and a half years old. The Fondation Accueil Petite Enfance EPFL-UNIL (FAPE) is the administrative and decision-making body that manages the three child life centres.
These nurseries form an integral part of the Réseau-L (Lausanne). To find a place in one of these nurseries, you must register your child on the centralised list managed by the Bureau d’Information aux Parents de la Ville de Lausanne. The registration must be updated every four months. The prices charged by these nurseries depend on the parents’ salary: you can calculate the price you should pay on this page.
* Salary paid by UNIL or EPFL.
