Launching a new on-line

Great News! We are kickstarting a brand new online network specifically for Froebelian/Froebel-inspired teachers and other professionals connected closely to school life, after nursery. We recognise that school is a unique setting, offering exciting opportunities as well as challenges for being (and staying) Froebelian. If you are looking for support and inspiration from peers in a similar situation, for ideas and encouragement - to make child-centred practice and play based on Froebelian principles more central to school life in/beyond the early stage - we hope you'll join us!

This initiative is being organised by Froebelian Futures..
