The Trust promotes the continuing value in the 21st century of the following principles to the education and learning of children up to the age of eight in the 21st Century :

 

 

The integrity of childhood in its own right


The relationship of every child to family, community and to nature, culture and society


The uniqueness of every child's capacity and potential


The holistic nature of the development of every child


The role of play and creativity as central integrating elements in development and learning


The right of children to protection from harm or abuse and to the promotion of their overall well-being

 

Friedrich Froebel is famous for his radical insight that the first learning experiences of the very young influence not only their later educational achievements but also the health and development of society as a whole. 

 

Froebelian education today is based on the principles, pedagogy and environment promoted by Froebel. Many of these have become widely accepted and embedded in mainstream practice.
