OUR PHILOSOPHY, VALUES AND METHODOLOGY

According to the motto Janusz Korczak "Tell the child that he is good and that he can" we try to give children as many opportunities as possible to discover the world on their own and to try different disciplines: scientific, linguistic or artistic. We, wanting to learn from the best and, just like the best, repeat these words to every child many times. For us, the Little Man is not with us for academic performance. It also doesn't have to be the best at all costs in any area. Instead, we want Children to grow in a sense of security and acceptance, and through experience and trying new things, they find out themselves that they can, can and want to do something, learn something. Only then does their and our work make sense and actually develops.

In our philosophy, we use various educational assumptions, including Montessorian (joining groups for part of the classes; all children know the entire teaching staff, so we have no problems with e.g. substitutions) or positive discipline (treating children as partners). We believe that the interweaving of various motives supports interdisciplinary development and does not limit.

Each Child is good, each wants to learn the world, and our role as Adults (Parents and Teachers) is to create a space for them and lead them in it. A smart work plan, routine and activities developing the seven main key competences allow for versatility and educate the ability to choose - what I want, what I like and what not and why? With us, children and parents find out!

Thanks to the cooperation with a professional private school, we are sure that educational services are of the highest quality and constitute an ideal basis for the further development of the children's language skills. We accept the standards used in schools (exactly as it is done in Western countries), which means that our pupils immediately prepare to continue their education at further stages.

Additionally, we implement a key competences support program. According to the assumptions of the functioning of the European Union, every person entering adulthood should have a range of widely developed skills (including learning, using the mother tongue and a foreign language, entrepreneurship, innovation), which are to help him during flexible adaptation to the ongoing changes. in the world. Therefore, we propose classes, among others on European integration and the science of Europe.

STRONG FOUNDATIONS:

  • Security - the overriding principle in the facility. We build them from the very beginning, we support, protect and deepen. We are convinced that only under such conditions can the Child take the next steps in its development.
  • Clear rules - we work on the basis of specific action plans, the rhythm of the day and this is also what we want to teach the pupils - it's okay simply to live better.
  • Professionalism - our team is constantly developed and trained to be able to provide children with care and support at the highest level. We take an example from Western educational systems.
  • Love for quality - continuous improvement and change is something certain for us, and at the same time still fascinating. Every, even the smallest, progress that we introduce to improve our work enjoys us exactly the same.

ABC OF FRENCH ADAPTATION

We are aware that for both Children and Parents the beginning of the adventure with education at the first level is a huge change. We attach great importance to safe acclimatization in a new place. Therefore, in Niedzwiadkowie we decided to use the French adaptation – the most popular in France, where children are already left in institutions from 3 months of age! We assume that acclimatization should proceed smoothly, albeit in a cordial atmosphere.

Therefore, we operate in the following steps:

  1. We invite the Parent/Guardian to accompany the Child for the first three days. During this time, the toddler becomes familiar with the new space and people. An adult is present in the institution, but gradually reduces his involvement in activities and allows the Child to take care of someone else.
    WE TRY NOT TO GET UPSET AND ENJOY THE CHANGE. WE BELIEVE THAT THE CHILD WILL COPE.
  2. We build trust and independence - also beyond the time spent at the facility. The key is to talk to the Toddler at home, apply similar rules. We should remember all the time that the Little Man perfectly feels the emotions of the Parent and absorbs them. So let's be careful not to dramatize.
    WE DON'T SCARE THE CHILD!
  3. Wychowawcy dają „zielone światło” Rodzicom/Opiekunom, kiedy mogą opuścić salę i poczekać w wyznaczonej przestrzeni. W przypadku kiedy Dziecko będzie tego wymagało, zostaną poproszeni o ponowne wejście. Ważne jest, aby odbywało się to w sposób naturalny, spokojny i przemyślany. Staramy się nie denerwować tym, że Maluch zostaje sam – jest pod opieką wykwalifikowanej kadry!
    A PEACEFUL PARENT IS A PEACEFUL CHILD!

If educators see that the Child requires more time to get used to a new place, they openly talk about it with the Parent/Guardian and extend the number of days the adult is staying with the Toddler.

French adaptation is a prelude to trust-based cooperation. Our offer is therefore addressed to people who understand this process and want to undertake it.

ATTENTION! During the school year, the adaptation schedule is shortened.

BEHAVIORAL ACTIVITIES

The organized classes are attended by a medical dog that works with the teacher on a daily basis.

As part of this module, we also host alpacas - animals intended for therapeutic work with children.
