If you are interested in an innovative approach to connecting a families & communities more closely with schools, here's an idea from the Netherlands: The Vensterschool is an increasinly popular initiative in which organisations and families interested in raising & educating children collaborate. The school reflects the community in which it resides. Ideally, the child care centre, after-school care, library, toy shop, school and local government services (eg. Maternal health centre) are located under the one roof. The Vensterschool's seven design principles: - continuity in child raising and education - an integrated approach and collaboration between organisations - activities within and outside school - parental involvement - social cohesion and neighbourhood renewal - optimal & multi-functional use of buildings http://www.designshare.com/projects/view.asp?p=projnarr&pid=155 Hans http://home.vicnet.net.au/~cohouse
