The values of Múlaborg are respect, trust, and equality


At Múlaborg preschool, we use the concepts of experience, interest, and activity from John Dewey and Howard Garner's theory of multiple intelligences to guide our teaching approach. We also incorporate ideas from Jean Piaget and Lev Vygotsky on the construction of knowledge. As an inclusive school, we prioritize equality and inclusivity in all aspects, including promoting equal rights for women and men, and creating a welcoming environment for children with and without disabilities to learn, work, and interact together. At Múlaborg, we provide advice for teaching children with disabilities to professionals and other interested parties.
