The Village makes a perfect addition to our portfolio. Led by passionate and fast-moving founders, it is a company that revolutionizes the rather stale and conservative realm of early child education, conceptualizing it within a marketplace model with nearly unlimited potential for expansion. Even more than that, it leads the way towards widely available, truly democratic, research-based education, which is critical in dealing with the challenges of the rapidly changing world around us. The solution also empowers women to become small entrepreneurs, or “momtrepreneurs”, supporting them in a moment where many face difficulties in returning to work after childbirth. “The mission of the Villages is to support mothers and educators in running their own local daycare centers around the values of attachment parenting, Non-Violent Communication and the Reggio Emilia philosophy, based on the idea of democracy and cooperation, which is needed so much in the modern world where we often forget how important small, neighborhood communities are” — summarizes Aleksandra Kozera. The time for a change in early child education is now, and we are glad to be a part of it.
