Based in Senlis (60300, Oise , France), Altern'Active Education organization was initiated by several families and created in September 2014.
Two women started this community project based on a common idea : to give some serious thought to education in order to set up a school respectful of active learning for 3-12 year olds. They wish to open an outward facing school and also propose :
- extra-curricular workshops open to children who do not attend the school;
- workshops, conferences, discussion groups on parenting and education.
Altern'active Education, is a non-profit making organisation as per the French 1901 Law, which aims to :
- promote and implement teaching which respects the children and their needs based on the Maria Montessori Teaching Method;
- promote thought and discussion on positive parenting and respectful education.
