Once you have created your access to EDUKA, you will be able to register one or more children.

Once completed, the health form must be sent to the International French School of Berne :
by mail to the following address : Jubiläumsstrasse 93-95, CH-3005 Berne
by e-mail to the following address :

EFIB will send you an acknowledgement of receipt and an invoice for the first registration fee to be paid immediately to confirm your registration. The registration fee is non-refundable. If this is your first child enrolled, you will also receive an invoice for the deposit to be paid by the date mentioned.

It is essential that any health problem of the child be reported to the school by means of the health form so that possible arrangements can be made (care protocol, integration of a handicapped child, treatment administered at school, etc.).

To be admitted to the kindergarten, a child must be clean, including during nap time.


For students already enrolled at EFIB

The re-enrollment campaign for students already enrolled at EFIB begins in March. Families will receive a re-enrollment form. In order to ensure the student’s registration for the following school year, this form must be returned by the date indicated. Re-enrollment fees are billed in early July and must be paid by August 15. All applications for enrollment and re-enrollment are subject to the financial conditions in effect for the school year in question.

The fees are set each year by the members of the Management Committee and the General Assembly of the AEFB (Association de l’École Française de Berne) who vote on the fees for the coming school year. The parents who send their children to EFIB decide on the amount of the tuition fees on the proposal of the Management Committee. Tuition fees are normally billed in three installments. The first instalment is on the October quarterly invoice, the second on the January quarterly invoice and the third on the April quarterly invoice.

Before deciding to enroll your child at EFIB, you have the opportunity to visit our premises located in Bern, Jubiläumstrasse 93-95.

Please contact us at to make an appointment and we will be happy to introduce you to our school.
