  • Description


    Our learning center – are a non-profit organization that focuses
    on how a community can learn and create together and thrive holistically.
    Young and old are part of a bigger community that supports each other; the focus is
    on being able to learn with and from each other. We appreciate everyone with their
    strengths and weaknesses. Everyone is encouraged to be themselves wholly and
    fully and to discover their personal talents and abilities. At our learning center, we
    believe that learning is a cheerful experience for any age group. It is important to us
    that learning is experienced as a holistic process. Therefore, we use methods of
    natural, social and cultural learning. Depending on age and development, there are
    different ways to approach learning. We strive to encounter each person on an
    individual level and help them to figure out their personal learning goals and needs.
    Through this process, we can help to reduce anxiety and ease learning difficulties in
    order to be fully open for new learning experiences.
    All members at the learning center are very passionate about their work and strive to
    be open, kind and honest with each other.

    Parents, our team, kidds and other interested people make it happen that we have something to eat and we would be happy if you come to help in the kitchen.
