'Learning environments have a significant impact on our learning. Learning is best done in rich, relevant contexts. "
One of our learning principles at OBS De Klimroos is that parents form part of the child's learning environment. Through effective collaboration with parents, the language and cultural background of our students can be a rich source for learning. Their knowledge, history and perspectives are important and benefit learning. They enrich the learning environment. The cooperation between home and school forms the basis to support the learning, growth, health and well-being of our students. Parents can play a role in work groups, the parents' council, as volunteers, offer support at events and celebrations, supervise activities outside of school and offer to be guest speakers during our units of inquiry.
