Organisation: Self steering team


Self steering team: experienced, passioned and professional

Bartele is an old Fries word that means literally to dig on the land so that people can seed. It shows our ambition to support children so they can flower. Self-reliance is a central value. Therefore we have a self steering team with members that complement eachother.

The self steering team consists of: Aga, Hadiyatou, Hayat en Laudine. Together they can speak Polish, French, English, although the daily conversation with kids is normally in Dutch. They have together more then 34 years of experience with Bartele, and are supported by stable temporary employees.
