We are based in an adventure playground in East London and we are for home educated children aged 6 - 12 years old. Gamechangers runs for two days per week during school hours. We are committed to equity, with an emphasis on play and consent. A place where children are free to choose how and what they learn, without their parents. Where all voices are heard and respected and where children can practice balancing their own individual needs and collective needs of their community. Gamechangers is a not for profit community interest company.
All individuals deserve a respectful, nurturing education which upholds their human rights and gives them freedom. We believe in unshackling learning from standardised testing and age based goals.
We trust children’s natural curiosity, intuition and their drive to play.
We trust our collaborative dynamics by making use of consent, democratic governance and nonviolent communication.
We recognise that all education is political. We trust that balance between autonomy and solidarity can be created. We rate equity over equality and strive for maximum accessibility.
As a community we develop a culture of connection and communication. These relationships based on trust, safety and empathy create a sense of belonging and support our members to thrive. The self directed journey of each individual cultivates curiosity and critical thinking, embodies pleasurable learning and enables all to reach their full potential.
Within the setting, the core team and the wider community of parents we practise and uphold our principles. We are interrelated with the local community and other self directed learning communities.
We're a group of home educating families who are working together to build a sustainable, accessible learning environment. We live in East London and have been working on this project since 2019.
