Welcome to Folha Verde!
We are a natural education project based in a restored olive press in the beautiful mountains of central Portugal.
We cater for kids aged from 3 years and up in our Jardim (kindergarten). Older children range from the ages 6 or 7 to about 14 years in the Big Kids.
We are an association that supports home educating families in our local area. We believe that the children in our community are competent, inspirational human beings and we are sharing a journey of education based in trust and mutual respect.
Our learning approach follows no specific pedagogy, preferring a natural evolution that enables facilitators and children to work and learn together.
We prioritise a culture of empowerment, emotional intelligence with communication and group-work skills as a key part of our practice.
