LeHo - Learning at Home and in the Hospital
"It is for the children and young patients the opportunity to see recognized their right to play and to education, so that, even in the hospital, despite the disease, they can grow, know and learn."
"The hospital school aims to provide children with those stepping stones, tracks, and signals that will help find their way home, the way to their schools trying to create a bridge with the world outside of the hospital, a bridge with life"
