„It takes a village to raise a child“ is an African proverb that means that an entire community of people must interact with children to experience and grow in a safe and healthy environment.
For me a kindergarten is also a part of such „village“ in our social environment today, in which children, parents and teachers are everyday together. It is often a journey „between words“, especially for families from different culture.Active collaboration between all of participants in an intercultural context will help to build bridges and open up the new horizons, that will be useful for children, parents and educators too.
