Beschrijving van het project
De Appeltuin is one of the 40 Freinet Schools in Flanders. The Freinet Pedagogical concept is part of the larger pedagogical project of Community Education in Flanders. Its aim is the total development of a person, with attention for the optimal development for each child personally. De Appeltuin is a kindergarten and primary school. The groups of children are structured in a way that there are always 2 age groups together. This stimulates that older children learn from the younger ones and the other way around. There is a lot a thematic approach – so called projects – especially in the kindergarten. Their kids can explore together different themes that are of interest in their world. In primary school, these projects are larger and more elaborated in time and space. The learning area of ‘world orientation’ is treated in these projects.Vertalen

For De Appeltuin motivation and interest in the themes the project is working with, namely education and children, is the biggest criteria. The learning-possibilities of the volunteer are also important.Since it is needed in the work with children, the volunteer needs to like to work with children and should have interest in pedagogical methods. The tasks of the volunteer will evolve from practical help in the classroom to the setting up of a specific project. The velocity of this evolution will depend on the growing language and practical skills of the volunteer.Vertalen

She/he will get the opportunity to assist in different classrooms (mainly one, but some others) and to get a close look on the educational tools and methods of a ‘Freinetschool’. The principles of the Freinet-philosophy are related to ‘non-formal education’ and ‘experimental learning’. This means that the children have to work on a variety of projects with different themes.
