Responsibility for running the Crèche lies with the Parents' Meeting, the Crèche Committee (CC), and the head supervisor.
This is open to all parents of children enrolled in the Crèche. It meets twice a year with an agenda drawn up by the Committee, or proposed by the parents.
Parents unable to attend the meeting may delegate another parent to cast their vote for them.
The Committee is elected by simple majority during the parents' meeting, held in September and holds office for one year from September to August. It guarantees the good relationship between, parents, staff and children and is responsable for the application of the Crèche rules
It is made up of
- Director of the Real Estate and Facilities Service
- 1 parent representing researchers
- 1 parent representing fellows
- 1 parent representing staff
Committee members and individual parents may present proposals to modify the set of Crèche rules. These will be examined by the parents' meeting called by the Committee and voted by simple majority (1 child, 1 vote).
The Committe also has some important tasks:

- supervises all income and expenditure
- supervises staff activities
