C’est la rentrée !

Since August 28th ‘Le Jardin des Particules’ is back to work for the year 2018-19 and is welcoming 104 children between 4 months and 6 years old, organised in groups of 4 to 18 children depending on their age.

Like every year, leaving one's parents or adapting to a new rhythm, a new environment and new people, is not always easy, but the whole team was very strongly involved such that every child and every parent could familiarise themselves with the kindergarten and the school.

Positive Discipline: How to educate with firmness and kindness?

Positive Discipline is a programme developed by Jane Nelsen, Doctor of Educational Psychology at the University of San Francisco. The programme is based on the work of Alfred Adler (medical doctor and psychiatrist 1870-1937) and Rudolf Dreikurs (psychiatrist and educator 1897-1972) and is designed to teach young people to become responsible and resourceful members of their community.

CERN Rocked at the Hardronic

As every year in the summer, over one weekend, the Prevessin site becomes a mecca for rock music, welcoming not only CERN staff members but also visitors.
