Striving for change, growth and new ideas often requires looking closely at best practice and learning from experience. You learn from direct interactions and in exchange with experts, as well as through personal visits to special places and facilities that help you shape your own vision.
FRÖBEL International offers you to gain insights into our pedagogical routines and to learn from our 25 years of experience in early learning through our exchange programs. You can select the program best suited to your needs from the following options:
Get to know how we work and visit our facilities in Berlin. FRÖBEL hosts one- to three-day early childhood education study trips to Berlin. The observation of pedagogical routines or even the more intensive “work shadowing” are the best ways to gain insight into how our philosophy comes to life. The stimulating and varied programs include presentations and lectures, talks and open exchanges with experts as well as onsite visits to childcare facilities, educational institutions and early childhood education projects.
We invite interested groups to come see us at our strongest FRÖBEL region in Berlin. However, other FRÖBEL locations are available upon request. To learn more about different durations and contents of our visitors program, please see the FRÖBEL International program brochure.
We offer single or multiple day study trips for various audiences. They are tailored to individual requirements of leaders in the early childhood field and representatives from the worlds of politics and business. Besides theoretical input regarding education policy, you will also gain practical insights into the routines of our kindergartens in Sydney, Melbourne and Poznan. Depending on your specific needs and focus we will prepare an individual program. In addition to talks with selected, competent partners from various institutions and the exchange with our experts in pedagogy, you will also have the opportunity to visit local projects and networks in the areas of social innovation and social entrepreneurship.
Through our international activities of the facilities abroad function as a hub for a network of innovative early childhood education practice, policies and culture. They build a bridge that enables exchange and enhances our intercultural competencies. In our opinion, economic success and social responsibility belong together. That is why we as an international educational company want to contribute to the exchange of cultures and people.
We initiate interactive workshops on topics of intercultural education in different inspiring locations. These camps are directed at early childhood education professionals and early childhood teachers. We offer educational travel providers and other interested organizations and individuals to develop a joint educational program at our locations in Berlin, Sydney, Melbourne and Poznan.
Through active exchange in an intercultural setting participants have the opportunity to further educate themselves, connect with other experts in their field and expand their professional network.
In addition to acquiring intercultural skills through practical insights and competent exchange, participants’ motivation and activation as change agents are key to our program. Together with the Paritätische Akademie Berlin we initiated an “Intercultural Camp Istanbul” focused on intercultural education.
