About us and our strategy

Charitable objects

To promote for the public benefit the advancement and understanding of Froebelian principles of education in learning within the UK and internationally.


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.


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