School and Work
While we don't have any in-house schooling, we maintain a close working relationship with the local
institutions. Bakkevejens school, 5 km away in Bramming, is the primary provider of schooling for
residents of the collective, but our kids can also attend a private “little school” when it is deemed more appropriate. These schools have been great at accommodating our kids. In the past, when kids have
experienced school fatigue, local employers have been willing to create internships or positions designed for them as an alternative.
School placement occurs in cooperation with PPR Esbjerg municipality.
In the past many years we have arranged several different vacations both within Denmark and outside.
We go on vacation, for the most part, every year:
During summer we've most often traveled to other countries in our own bus or in some kind of tour
bus. We try to plan trips together with the kids so we can collaborate on finding destinations and
activities. The last few trips have been to Italy, Czech Republic, France and Croatia.
Fall and Winter Break:
If there is enough interest among residents, we enthusiastically go traveling during these times. During winter vacation in the past, we've taken ski trips to Italy, France, Austria and Norway. Other
destinations during school holidays include big city trips or traveling to beach resorts. Planning takes
into account the wishes of those wanting to take part and, of course, the amount of money available.
Every year we arrange a couple of trips within Denmark to tourist destinations like amusement parks and cultural attractions.
