La Grande Ourse is in the stream of the "free school" of Belgium, France and French-speaking Switzerland. It shares values with people like Decroly, Freinet, Carl Rogers and with the "Institutional pedagogy", while being engaged in a permanent and autonomous didactical researching process.

" L'enfant n'aime pas le travail de troupeau auquel l'individu doit 
se plier comme un robot. Il aime le travail individuel ou le
 travail d'équipe au sein d'une communauté coopérative. "
Célestin Freinet, Invariant pédagogique no 21
