Our Approach

When the children apply for school, we don’t test them in order to rank them, but to get to know their skills and abilities. By knowing the level of their overall development, we are able to plan the individual learning paths for our students.

When we create a learning environment, we don’t build it to show off to parents or stakeholders. The learning environment needs to inspire the children. We want the children to feel comfortable and safe at school.

When the children are at school, the main responsibility of all school staff is to support children in their growth. The adults of the school are not there for any other reason.

When we say that the child is in the center, we don’t just say that. Our teachers are highly qualified and committed to support each child, in as many different ways as there are children. Every child has his or her own way of learning, own interests and own challenges.

When we think of our students, we don’t only see them as students. We see them as complete persons and we are dedicated to take care of their holistic well-being. That is why we have an educated team of learning assistants, social workers and nurses as part of the expert team in the school.

When in class, we don’t only make children sit quietly and memorise information. We apply age-appropriate ways of teaching, make learning interesting and support their life-long passion to learn.

When we think of the school path of our students, we don’t think our influence ends when they leave our school. We will have equipped them with skills to learn throughout their life. Children are responsible for their own learning, but our job is to encourage and motivate them to realize their full potential – through the joy of learning.
