Educational policy

All day care centres work on the basis of our educational work plan. This work plan describes how we implement the Small Society educational policy in daily practice. The branch manager makes sure that this also happens in practice.

By recording what we do, how we do it and why we do it in that way, we want to ensure unity in the way we work. At the same time, we make all parties involved, such as parents, the GGD and the fire brigade, accountable. The plan is available for inspection at all locations. It goes without saying that Small Society adheres to the guidelines of the GGD and fire brigade when it comes to safety, health, hygiene etc. We gauge the situation through the Risk Inventory (RI), on which we are assessed annually.

By keeping an eye on the educational policy (as well as its impact on daily practice), and adjusting it where necessary, we are able to keep it up to date. All employees are asked to submit an active contribution to this. We want to challenge you to ask why you think what you think and why you do what you do and whether things could be different. In this way, we work together to continually adapt more effectively to the needs of the child and the opportunities we are able to offer as Small Society.

Small Society has been inspired by various educators and educational trends. These include elements of Gordon, Freinet and Reggio Emilia.

Small Society’s various locations are small, homely and warm. Every child and every parent is made to feel welcome and visible. Everything we do revolves around the child. His or her interests and needs are crucial. We love the child unconditionally and accept him or her as he or she is. A flexible approach is important because each child is different.
