As part of the European Employment Strategy, the European Council called on the social partners to negotiate agreements to modernise the organisation of work, including flexible working arrangements, in order to make companies productive and competitive and to achieve the necessary balance between flexibility and security. The agreement was signed in 2002 and is expected to be implemented within three years of the signing date. Within four years of the signing of the agreement, a European report should be drawn up on the basis of national reports: see working paper COM (2008) 412 final EUR-Lex. There is also an interpretation guide in English and French. It is a European agreement negotiated and implemented by the social partners (CES, UNICE, UEAPME and CEEP). The agreement defines telework and establishes, at European level, a general framework for the working conditions of teleworkers. It recognises that teleworkers enjoy the general protection afforded to workers on the basis of the employer`s premises and highlights the key areas in which the specifics of telework should be taken into account. Dr. Maria Montessori is the founder of the Montessori teaching method. Their lives were devoted to improving the education of children and began with the early observation that every child wants to learn spontaneously. When she died, her method was taught successfully all over the world. The Montessori method is not just a curriculum; It`s a way of life. The Montessori environment supports a child`s natural tendencies to discover their own personality, talents and needs and to respect each child`s choices and interests.
The classroom supports freedom of movement – children learn to take care of themselves and their environment, and the prepared learning room is tailored to the academic and social needs of children.
