Thanks to health education, each day children participate in:
Adaptation classes are designed to familiarize children with our facility. These are meetings during which children take active part in various forms of activity containing all elements of general development games. They get used to new friends, caretakers and new surroundings. These are 6-hours of free classes, lasting from 30 to 90 minutes depending on the individual needs of the child.
Children participate in the classes independently (without a parent).
Caretakers run interesting classes using teaching methods that help:
Educational classes conducted in a group
Rhythmics is not just learning and singing songs. It’s also a bit of a theory: what are notes and how they are of use to create music, what the staff and treble clef look like, etc.
It is learning about various musical instruments and different types of music, from classical to popular as well as music created using everyday objects such as cups, cutlery, sticks, blocks, etc.
It also involves independent attempts to play musical instruments. It is also feeling emotions and attempts to name them and expression through dance and movement.
Children who from an early age have the opportunity to listen to a variety of music become more sensitive not only in terms of music, but also emotionally, artistically and socially. Skillfully selected music silences excessive negative emotions and stimulates positive ones.
Important elements in classes include clapping, stomping, jumping, gestures, screaming, performing rhythmic body movements and marching. The purpose of these classes is to deepen the perception of music, make the child realize their own emotional states and express them just by movements, gestures and verbally.
A very pleasant part of music therapy is relaxation: breathing exercises in a lying and sitting position so as to strengthen physical and mental relaxation.
Music therapy classes are conducted by caretakers every day.
During the art classes, various techniques are used: finger painting, candle drawing, glue primer, grits, charcoal, pastel drawing, stamping, work made of yarns, rags, groats and macaroni, playing with clay, paper pulp and many more.
Classes develop children’s imagination, manual skills, artistic expression, help them to believe in one’s own strength, increase self-esteem, teach patience.
Art classes take place at the Nursery at least twice a week for each group.
Environmental and ecological education conducted by our caretakers with the use of interesting content that allows not only to acquire elementary knowledge in this field, but also teaches children respect for the surrounding world, awakening the need in them for its protection.
Teachers offer children opportunities to:
Language classes in the nursery take place 5 times a week. English is taught by a NATIVE SPEAKER, from whom children learn the language by employing all senses during play.
Classes are conducted using music and movement. Children perform physical exercises with elements of gymnastics, thereby strengthening their body as they acquire a foreign language. During classes, the “no Polish” principle applies, thereby creating an English-speaking environment. From context, the children learn about the meanings of the sounds they play with every day. Thanks to this, they learn quickly and easily.
Caretakers play specially designed CDs that ensure important, everyday contact with this language, thanks to which learning English is a part of every day.
Caregivers using play pedagogy enrich forms of group work with the help of colorful Klanza sheets, which gives children the opportunity to be active and engage in joint creation and experience spontaneous joy of creative group work.
Children’s favorite games include:
Children build structures out of blocks, arrange blocks, build and destroy buildings out of blocks, put circles on a pyramid and match the appropriate shapes to the holes.
The purpose of manipulation and construction games is:
These classes are defined by various terms, such as role games, imitative, creative, seasons, learning about the cultures of other nations, playing in the kitchen corner and in the doll corner. The content of themed games enriches the activities of children in our nursery. A plot appears, then increasingly complex situations are recreated.
Fairytale therapy is simply therapy which uses fairytales. All children like to listen to fairytales, especially the youngest. Reading specific fairy tales can help a child in many difficult emotional situations, such as facing irrational fears or the first days of being in a nursery. These classes take place several times a week for each group.
In the main hall there is an information board on which current information for parents is displayed. An important place on the information board is occupied by the “Menu” presenting the daily menu.
Information addressed to parents or nursery employees has its permanent places on separate boards. In addition, each group has its own separate board, on which the monthly and weekly schedule of the given group is placed, as well as art works done by the children. This system is constantly changing, we are improving its graphic design, we are constantly expanding the scope of information.
