We are inspired by the ideals of JanuszKorczak: respect for the child and following their natural need to discover the world. If you know how to disgnose a child's joy (...), you have to see that the highest joy is brought by overcoming an obstacle, achieving an aim, unfolding a secret. In discovering the worls, a child needs a wise adult who acts as a mentor.
A natural upbringing stems from the belief that each childf has a potential and naturally seeks to develop it. A smart educator only needs to suport them in achieving that goal.
We do not think of mistakes, but occasions to learn. We do not think of a system of punishment, but of natural consequences of one's actions. We treat children with respect and likewise expect them to respect their surroundings: their friend, family, teachers, animals and natures; to live in harmony with them.
That is why it is important to follow the rules we make themselves as a group. In our preschool we have the right to make mistakes, burt we also elarn how to best treat one another so that each child feels well and safe at school.
