Visits to Our School
Child at Street 11 receives many distinguished visitors. The presence of visitors in the Centre is important for the development of the process of children taking responsibility for their own learning. Children are driven by their curiosity and imagination and they learn best in relationship-driven environments. When a visitor comes to the Centre, the child views the visitor as someone who cares about his or her learning, views and knowledge. Children learn when they listen and are listened to. When adults listen to children’s views, children feel loved and valued. A school has a powerful influence on this process and children will value the relationship of listening within the school, as well as the wider world.
“Congratulations on your graduation and for completing this meaningful project. I am very happy to read your essays, which show an amazing depth of thought. Enjoy your life journey and may you continue to be a beacon of light to those around you!”

“Having visited the Child at Street 11 Childcare Centre today, my wife and I are deeply touched by your very professional approach to childcare and making small pre-school children self-reliant and confident. Your good work for them until they are ready for Primary School needs to be continued in their initial years in Primary School.”

I still feel emotional when I remember my visit to the Child at Street 11 school: I was able to appreciate the competent and passionate commitment of all those working there, sustaining and supporting the right of children to an education of quality, including through their dialogue – which is constantly renewed and for which we are grateful – with the Reggio Emilia Approach.

“It was so heartening to see the children perform the life of Anne Frank. What happened to Anne Frank shall never ever again happen to other children. The children of this kindergarten gave me a lot of hope.”

‘’Thank you for initiating the Child at Street 11 production of the Anne Frank Diary.
I have seen this important book been staged many times and in many countries outside of Israel, my homeland. It is still spine-tingling for me, and the children despite their young age seem to get somewhat into the unimaginable reality of the horrific lives of Jews during that period in Europe”.
