We believe in you
Our motto at KPOA is ‘We believe in you’. We believe in the power of the development of children. By building a trusting relationship we allow children to experience and to connect with the wealth of our culture and society. In this, we believe in the power and craftmanship of professionals to trigger target-oriented learning processes.
The antropological motive of wanting to be unique as an individual human being creates the basic (pedagogical) need for autonomy. Our guiding value to deal with this is Confidence; you can be you with all your dreams and imperfections, and you can be who you essentially want to be.
The antropological motive of wanting to be part of a community creates the basic (pedagogical) need for relationships. Our guiding value to deal with this is Connectedness; we enter into a relationship together and we connect ourselves to common goals from the realisation that we continue to build the community of which we are a part.
The antropological motive of wanting to contribute in a meaningful way to culture and society creates the basic (pedagogical) need for being competent. Our guiding value to deal with this is Craftsmanship; we recognise that education requires a moral compass, professional vulnerability and, in dialogue, working together within our environment on continuous development of capabilities.
