• What are our goals?

    • Restoring connections between families, creating an environment for mutual growth in a society in which the nuclear family is often isolated.
    • Offering an educational approach that encourages free and active learning, and promotes education focused on the needs of the child during each developmental stage, with the participation of parents, educators, and the child himself/herself. The concrete result of this vision is the Xantala school, which is run by the association.
    • Highlighting motherhood as an exceptional state with specific needs for help and support from conception through the postnatal period.
    • Creating a space to inform and teach families about different methods of supporting a child’s development in a respectful and aware manner.
    • Promoting on-going learning for educators and volunteers, creating a space for research and the exchange of ideas relating to our philosophy of respect for the autonomy and uniqueness of children and their families.
    • Encouraging relationships with other organizations that share a similar philosophy in order to work as a group.
    • Upholding the fundamental social importance of having time to form quality relationships as opposed to work, since these relationships form the backbone that supports the physical and mental health of our future society.
    • Promoting the legal recognition of alternative education through our involvement in Xell (Network for Self-directed education), so that our needs as parents and citizens are acknowledged and respected.
