Cultural Life and Outings

 

Family life

In France, education is obligatory for children between the ages of 3 and 16. Public teaching establishments (non-paying schools) and private schools (paying) teach the same curriculum nationwide. The majority of school establishments offer canteen services at lunch time. For children between the age of 3 and 6, nursery schools and primary schools generally offer childcare services before and after school.
