Città infinita France
Educator of young children and tutor, she guides both children and their parents and professionals by working for the development of young and old. Méline sows their path with her knowledge, her reflections, her questions, making the journey richer, more flowery, more natural too. Méline delivers her pedagogical approach through Slow pedagogy: an accompaniment of early childhood where all the richness is in the simplicity of exploration and in the pleasure of shared time. Méline is passionate about designing educational workshops. It is said of her that she is a real “suggestion box”! With its Ebullarium structure, it imagines and deploys playful and innovative installations that allow children to develop their creativity and ingenuity. It was her inexhaustible curiosity that led Méline to Mao and Roberta. What a great meeting!
Distanced by miles but so close in their pedagogical convictions, Méline is very happy to be part of the “La Citta Infinita” family.
She lives in the Vercors mountains with Joseph, Siméon, Adélie and Gaspard.
