Who we are70

We believe education is about living people, not products or data points. Our network of educators, parents, social entrepreneurs and researchers are creating a socially mobile, empowering culture of change within education. Opportunities for change exist in every school and community. We are here to support you in designing, creating and launching your education project; be it a progressive nursery school, home and community education programme, or micro-school.

 

"The world is undergoing revolutionary changes; we need a revolution in education too. Like most revolutions, this one has been brewing for a long time, and in many places it is already under way. It is not coming from the top down; it is coming, as it must do, from the ground up." -Sir Ken Robinson, Creative Schools: The Grassroots Revolution That's Transforming Education

Our Ethos

For us, childhood is the time not for competitiveness but for self discovery, developing curiosity, confidence and the skills to become active participants in a democratic society.

Our Mission

To improve outcomes for children by sharing knowledge and practice, and to challenge and improve what we do by keeping our minds open to new ways of thinking and being.

Our Resources

From the NN Starter Kit to full Micro-School Design Kits, we have innovative resources to help you launch your own education-based projects. Find out more here.

The Authentic Adult

When we help a child to feel secure, feel appreciated, feel that “somebody is deeply, truly interested in me,” by the way we look, the way we listen, we influence that child’s sense of worth and the way that child sees life.
