Our son, now 9, began attending Roots and Wings at age 2. For the past 7 years, we have joyfully watched our shy little guy blossom into a confident, engaged, emotionally intelligent superstar who adores his school!
Roots and Wings has been an unbelievable blessing to us. Soraya and her staff have created a magical environment that combines practical education with a strong focus on creativity, nature and emotional awareness. An absolute gem in Brussels!
Roots and Wings feels like home to me. I knew from the first visit that our son belonged here. It ticked all the boxes for us. One thing I like mostly is that all the teachers have the same positive energy and you’ll always find one or two children being hugged by their teacher. Never have I heard them raise their voice. I love what Soraya once said “here it is a no- judgement zone”. And I feel no judgement coming from any of the staff. Roots and Wings is not only for our kids, it is also for us parents. It feels like a village.
It feels safe, welcoming and joyous. Teaching there doesn’t only happen indoors, because at first you’ll wonder “how are they going to cope with kids in a small indoor space? ”, “ will my child be able to nap?”. Trust me, when they want to nap, they will. Probably tired from all the outdoor activities they do, and will sleep even better at night. So we couldn’t have chosen a better school for our son.
"Our youngest son spent his first three years with Mom. We were looking for a preschool that would be respectful of his adaptation to a new reality. A preschool that was patient with its own times. A preschool in which we were completely sure that he was going to be unconditionally loved, as we love him. And we found this precious jewel where our little one is being accompanied, supported, loved and respected by an exceptional group of people under the leadership of Soraya, a unique person and professional. The ratio is unbeatable and the location in the middle of the forest together with an individualized approach means that we cannot recommend this preschool highly enough. "
"Our eldest daughter
joined the Roots and Wings primary school after an extraordinary experience in
a Montessori preschool. The beginning was difficult for her because her friends
went to other schools, but the attention, dedication and support she received
from the school's pedagogical team was exceptional. Now our daughter simply
loves the school. It is a very solid educational project where Soraya has
managed to find a perfect balance between emotional and academic development.
SOLE pedagogy is combined with meditation, circus, art, singing, outdoor
activities and an endless number of innovative pedagogical initiatives. All
this, in small groups with a personalized approach and with highly qualified
teachers. Without a doubt, it is difficult to find a similar school in Brussels
and we highly recommend it."
