Homo Ludens: Leren is spelen

BY MONIQUE DE HAAN
@ VOL 1 ON FEB 04, 2015

Alex, Max en Tamin. Alex is 5 jaar, Max is 1 jaar en Tamin 5 maanden. Je zou denken dat het 3 broertjes zijn en daar heeft het misschien ook wel iets van weg. Maar het zijn de 3 jonge scholen in Veenendaal waar Monique de Haan als directeur verantwoordelijkheid voor draagt. Kleine scholen met een uniek onderwijsconcept. Ontwikkelingsgericht. Kinderen hebben uitdaging en begeleiding nodig om tot ontplooiing te komen. Leren is spelen. De bekende professor Johan Huizinga schreef er in 1938 een wereldberoemd geworden boek over “Homo Ludens; de spelende mens” En dat ging niet over kinderen trouwens.
