EDUCATION
What we believe in:

Self Initiated Learning
Children choosing freely where to engage. Adults are there for support.
Knowledge availability
Adults sharing their passions and knowledge through workshops/activities they propose for children and other adults. Adults bringing children to their places of learning interest such as museums, libraries, nature, experts, theater, projects…
Needed support and Guidance
Family and other supporters giving time to guide and assist children in what they need
Spaces for learning
Different spaces that provide conditions and tools that allow learning different kind of activities.
Needs being meet
One basic tool for action is listening everybody needs and help each other to meet them
Peaceful Environment
A peaceful atmosphere where we all aim to help each other on our journeys and processes
Cooperative Communication
Cooperative communication as a foundation to communicate peacefully and sharing about personal and group needs. For this we use the tools brought by Marshal Rosenberg. You can also see: non violent communication.
Holistic
Humans are holistic beings with certain intellectual, emotional, physical and spiritual characteristics and needs. It is necessary to provide time and space to meet all these needs.
Alive
Learning related to what makes sense to learn at the present moment by necessity, curiosity or personal interest.
Nature Connection
As human beings we are also Nature. Re-find this link and respect for Mother Earth. Learning in nature and helping the ecosystem to recover.
Parents as an example 
Example is a very strong way of teaching both practically and energetically. By working on ourselves we are passing that to our children too.
Shared Tasks
Everybody helping in the needed communal living daily needs.
