Early Childhood Education

We cannot know what knowledge, tools and skills our children will need in the future. But we may assume that if we imbue them with creativity, curiosity, initiative and social skills, they will be able to acquire what they need on their own, and thus cope better with the challenges of the future.

These qualities can already be instilled at the age when personality is being shaped, by means of 21st century early childhood education. Rather than focusing on imparting knowledge, this type of education serves as a catalyst for learning, curiosity and cooperation.

In the Early Childhood Education Department of the Institute for Democratic Education, we are working to develop, implement and disseminate innovative pedagogies and strategies that nurture individuals and their place in society. We are working to formulate and implement policies together with policy-makers, cities, organizations, communities and educational institutions.
