Protecting Childhood. Fighting against age-inappropriate educational expectations


PROTECTING CHILDHOOD

Our mission is to advocate for happy and healthy childhoods where learning is child-centred, age-appropriate, activity-based and fun. Education should meet the holistic development of each child, free from standardised testing and ranking.
