The project creates an educational bridge that connects the first year of primary school with kindergarten. Both levels of schooling retain their individuality, but the threshold between the two disappears. Both age groups are mixed encouraged to interact in a dedicated space. They can learn from each other and be stimulated at the different levels of maturity. This allows the transition from kindergartern to primary school seem less daunting. Not only does that benefit the children, but it also benefits the teachers who are much more likely to lean on their strengths and competencies.
