Kidzateljé encourages children’s inner desire to explore

Children learn through interaction with others and with their surroundings. Since we speak both English and Swedish in my family, your toddlers will have a natural bilingual environment.

We want to draw out inspiration from the imagination and create joy by:

  • Create a learning environment where children are included in the design of their learning.
  • A well thought-out pedagogical environment which is based on fundamental didactic questions, such as; what, why and how.
  • Mindfulness where children feel involved and seen from the child’s perspective.
  • The creation of cultural identity and develop a sense of belonging in the global community by developing a sense of respect for other cultures.
  • Create awareness for sustainable learning and values of humanity.
  • Strive for better education through reflection, evaluation and security.
  • Encourage bilingualism; Swedish/English in the business, thus creating better conditions for the upcoming school year in global citizenship.
