Schooling and entertainment
The Escale School provides hospitalized children and young adults with appropriate educational support that covers infant, primary and secondary levels. The School offers individual lessons or educational workshops either in class or at the bedside of children who are not able to move around.
The objectives are as follows:
- to allow the pupil to remain actively involved in their education,
- to offer each pupil a suitable educational goal,
- to provide academic learning that is line with the objectives of the child’s original school,
- to maintain the pupil’s social ties,
- to prepare for home-based learning monitoring.
The Escale school works in partnership with the medical and paramedical teams, the child’s original school, e-Escale, the EHD association (home-based learning monitoring) and asbl Take Off (loans computer equipment to help children keep up with their classes “live” at their original school).
