SCHOOLS & CHILDREN GROUPS

Each children group and school is organised and operates as an independent association. The groups share a common understanding: to create a free space where children and youth have enough time and space to develop their own personality in the context of a community; a respectful, peaceful, and appreciative social environment; no dividing lines between learning and living; and democratic principles as the basis for shaping one’s own environment.  

Being affectionate companions on the children’s path to an independent life is based on cooperation between the supervisors, teachers, children, and parents.
