Manada Gori-Gori is a self-run educational community created by and for families who wish to raise their children aged 2 to 6 years old, in a respectful way, within a caring and child-centred environment inspired by different alternative school models.

Gori-Gori was born in 2014 as a shared upbringing group, formed by 10 families (and 11 Goris) who wanted to be more actively involved in the education of their kids and share the adventure of growth with other families.

Manada Gori-Gori is a relaxed environment that encourages children to play and explore freely, developing their own sense of individuality. Their pedagogy can be summed up in three words: listening, presence, respect. 

At Gori-Gori, children start each day sharing fruit and singing before a morning of play. The group plans different excursions each month and regular outings to local parks and the Jardí del Silenci.

Lunch is often eaten outside as a picnic, and delicious, healthy foods are prepared each day by one of the families. After lunch, there is an emphasis on quieter activities (such as telling stories, drawing or doing crafts), to encourage a slow digestion.

The philosophy of Manada Gori-Gori is for parents to spend as much time as possible with their kids, providing them with the best care possible. Two professional counsellors, plus two families look after a maximum of 21 children each day. More information on their educational philosophy can be found on the Manada Gori-Gori website, which is in Spanish only.

It is not clear whether the school is open to non Spanish-speakers, however one of the two main teachers at the nursery speaks English.
