The LEGO Foundation
The LEGO Foundation seeks to transform attitudes and behaviours about learning and play across society. The Foundation works with parents, carers, schools systems, institutions and governments, with a focus on children aged 0-12, and a special emphasis on early childhood where children develop most rapidly, both physically and mentally.
The LEGO Foundation's model leverages three approaches
- - Identify and support programmes as examples of play that works
- - Build and share evidence to explain the value of play
- - Communicate to gain buy-in about how children best learn for life
Please note that the LEGO Foundation does not accept unsolicited requests.
