ORDINARY EXTRAORDINARY WALK is a brand name of the original concept on the basis of which the CASPAR Center has operated so far. The objective of the Center is to further develop this idea through practical work as to establish  patterns and methods to working with children that may provide highest possible educational and upbringing effects.

 

 

What is the fundamental idea of this concept?

A direct and active contact with the environment we live in, is one of the best ways to learn. We usually perceive the localities in our surrounding as insufficiently interesting,  common. However, many activities, if they are made highly purposeful, may reveal some less known, but nevertheless intriguing aspects of our environment. Hence, the things around us might become the beginning path to perceiving the world and its processes. By gradually expanding the pursuit of their activities to other more remote places, knowledge and comprehension of children will be broadened by ascending line. That is why we have chosen a snail as the CASPAR Center`s symbol.
