Yet the gentle eye, voice, and expertise of heartfelt guidance is unstoppable. This, as I understand it from this young lady, already a cosmologist, is the universe; including the intricate structures that support Ma Maison Ma Planète.

The Centre Paul Valeyre offers childcare for children from 18 months to 3 years, on the principle of alternating activities: visual arts, music awareness, body awareness, story reading, “baby massage” sessions are organized regularly.

All year, the center focuses on projects implemented by and for young people. Several times a year, open sessions make available free rehearsal spaces for music or dance projects.

Discussion groups in different genres, including fun and interactive approaches to learning citizenship for 11 to 15 years, are presented every month, and include thematic exhibitions and meetings hosted by specialists. A ” Youth Ciné-Club ” is  free on Saturday afternoons twice per quarter.

Additionally, the Paul Valeyre Center hosts ongoing special events related to cultural programming, including cabaret evenings, social cafes around issues related to child/parent relationships, including family consultation/médiation, film discussions, and artists’ installations.

J’aime bien ma planète. Elle est belle.

Imagine.
