ONNI for Education Providers

Being an educator means you are the parents' closest partner in raising and educating their children. You have a huge responsibility in your hands. You must not only teach the child but also be able truly to listen to and communicate with the child's parents. We know that when kindergartens/schools and parents share similar values and mission of raising and educating children, both groups benefit. 

From our experience and research, we know that kindergartens and schools often state that one of the most challenging parts of their job is dealing with parents. It should not be like this. It does not have to be like this. When you put an effort and focus on strong parental partnership and educating parents, your job gets a whole lot easier. 

Let us guide your educators and parents to look into the child's happiness and wellbeing from a new point of view and improve the educational partnership in your facility. As an educator, you are never ready. Join the ONNI Program to learn, question and challenge your way of thinking about educating children!
