Our private school in Nyon offers a modern and stimulating learning environment for children from 3 to 10 years old. We pursue excellence in all we do and combine the latest effective teaching methods with trusted traditional approaches. While the Nyon private school is a relatively new addition to our family, the story of Collège Champittet dates back more than a century.
