Development work until “going live”
The development and conception of beginning well: articles and graphic design, creating film and photo material, editing and technical implementation among other things have been made possible by the initiators’ voluntary work and donations.
We rely upon donations for the maintenance and further development of beginning well. They are needed for: technology (server, maintenance, development), management (e.g. public relations work, fund-raising, administration, further international development), editing, production of film and photo material, maintaining the forum (which should enable an exchange of ideas and experiences between parents and specialists and possibly also individual online advice), translation into English and other languages.
Our aim is that as many people as possible can benefit from the ideas presented here. We therefore consciously decided not to charge for use of the site. We also do not take product advertising that we consider inappropriate for the context. Knowledge should be freely available everywhere for everybody.
People who support beginning well have the common aim to create the best possible preconditions for the mental, emotional and physical development of children.
We trust that people for whom the content of beginning well is important will donate as they see fit. You can help us to keep this project going for the benefit of as many children and parents as possible.
Our heartfelt thanks for your support,
