La FEE welcomes your discovery class projects

Throughout the year, the Ferme Européenne des Enfants welcomes schools for day trips or week-long educational stays focused on exploration, wonder, and learning in contact with nature. The Farm team leverages its pedagogical experience to tailor stays according to teachers’ educational projects, emphasizing specific learning objectives.

Exchange stays involving multiple schools, both French and foreign, are possible and have resulted in beautiful stories of lasting encounters, throughout the history of la FEE.

Class accommodation is provided in the 3 guest houses, which can be separated if multiple schools are visiting, or combined for a larger project, accommodating up to 65 students and their accompanying staff.
