Strategic priorities

The Trust has agreed a new Five Year plan which is available to download below. 


Charitable objects

Our Charitable Objects are: “To promote for the public benefit the advancement and understanding of Froebelian principles of education in learning within the UK and internationally”.


Our vision

Our vision is a world in which childhood is valued in its own right and each child’s capacity and potential is recognised. It is one in which all young children have access to high quality learning and education based on Froebelian principles.

Our mission

Our mission is to promote the value and relevance of Froebelian principles to the education and learning of children in the 21st Century.

Strategic objectives

Our strategic objectives are to:

  1. Seek to demonstrate how the application of Froebelian principles provide high quality learning and education
  2. Increase our impact and visibility by increasing our charitable activity, improving our own practices and building new and effective partnerships

Cross cutting themes

The Trust has adopted three cross cutting themes that reflect our vision and priorities. These will provide an additional focus for our grant giving and will be reviewed at the end of a three year period. Where relevant, advertised grant programmes will indicate whether applicants will be invited to consider addressing at least one of the themes. The themes are:

  • Addressing disadvantage and valuing diversity
  • Childhood under stress (focusing on those environments in which young children cannot play freely or with agency)
  • Adult (staff and parental) engagement with young children
