Projects

NestingPlay provides quality pre-primary education services to all children, through guided sensory-based play activities so that children can develop skills and competencies that can help them succeed in school, complete primary education and transition to higher levels, and eventually transform into responsible and productive citizens, open to diversity and peace. Our methodology is based on the M. Montessori and A. J. Ayres approaches which considers the child as a whole and builds on the child’s sensory needs.

Our geographic focus is Europe, with special focus on Central and Eastern Europe, and the Western Balkans, India, and Kenya. Our projects are financed through grants and private donors. We also work in partnerships, complementing larger educational projects with this special focus on children with development disorders.
