Our Activities and Courses

  • Getting to know the letters

Children develop the ability to read. They learn to hold a pencil, maintaining correct posture, to write their name and those of their peers in upper and lower case, to copy words that serve functional needs and meet their interests.

  • Children and expression

Children develop oral communication and expression. They formulate their thoughts, narrate experiences from their everyday life, describe objects or events to the group, explain and argue about their choices and opinions, learn to listen without interrupting their counterparts, acquire phonological awareness of language through the distinction of phonemes, exercise their memory through the distinction of phonemes as components of words.

  • Outdoor Classrooms

Taking advantage of our school’s unique geographical location, we offer large open spaces in nature for our students with the Outdoor Classroom. Firmly believing that children learn anywhere and anytime and that they need a wide variety of learning experiences and development opportunities in areas such as mobility development, social-emotional development, language development and creative expression, many of the educational activities are also implemented outdoors. While outside, children can often initiate their own learning experiences and activities, with teachers supporting them. Children experience nature in as many ways as possible, providing priceless benefits as such educational interventions help to increase physical development and physical capabilities, laying the foundations for an active, healthy lifestyle in a relaxing environment. At the same time, such activities contribute to the development of interest in science through its connection with nature, while encouraging learning through self-awareness, making children happier, calmer with higher and stronger self-confidence, and building interpersonal relationships in a non-competitive but cooperative environment.

  • Music and movement

Since ancient times, dance, movement and music have been essential parts of both education and children’s everyday life. So it is also included in our Kindergarten programme as an activity. Through music and movement education our students express themselves and have fun. Through the use of instruments and physical movements the child is able to better organize their emotions and become more creative! Its benefits are many! It develops hearing. Stimulates the imagination! Develops all aspects of the child’s personality. It teaches the child to cooperate and take on responsibilities.

  • Emotions and Social Skills Workshop

Our actions, our behaviour, our mood shape the world around us. All of the above is an externalization of our emotions. So by understanding more about our mental world, we better understand our environment. It is very important to be able to recognize our emotions, as this helps us to cope with them.

  • Theater play

Experientially, through various stimuli such as references to other lessons, a picture, a story, an incident, children explore and discover the world around them. It is a very enjoyable process of discovery and knowledge through the cultivation of creative imagination. Children are invited, through the security offered by the ‘role’ and with the help of a fictional story, to discuss and express themselves on completely real issues that may concern them in their daily lives. Body movement, play, silence, improvisation and role playing offer each child pleasure, enjoyment, helping them to turn towards themselves and towards the needs of their peers.

  • English

English is part of the everyday life of our Kindergarten and is not introduced as a separate subject only. In a fun and playful way, children are introduced to the first language stimuli in English based on the learning needs of their age. Thus, under the supervision of an English-speaking teacher, they are actively involved in the learning process through conversations, songs and games and experiential activities, cultivating skills and developing concepts relevant to the subject they are working on. The teaching of English focuses on communication (speech and expression) and aims to engage students in a process where language learning is not just an objective but a means of exploration and learning in order to love the language.

  • Exploring the environment

Through experiential activities, physical movement and play, children are encouraged to constantly expand their perceptions of space, initially exploring their immediate environment. They recognise that the environment around them can change and that they can, through their own intervention, modify it. They recognise some inventions of humans as well as the usefulness of science in everyday life, compare photographs, analysing and commenting on events and characters, read fairy tales, myths and write their own stories, etc.

  • Problems and Solutions

The main objective is to develop ways of thinking that exploit the characteristics of mathematical science. Through experiential activities based on sense-based learning, students build basic mathematical concepts, which lay the foundation along the way to acquire an important mathematical background. Mathematical concepts are always applied through games and movement, aiming for children to learn to group, sort, compare, match based on specific criteria, orient themselves in space and time, enumerate, recognise numbers and their meaning, perform simple mathematical operations mentally or with objects, do experiments with discrete (e.g., beads) and non-discrete (e.g., water) units of measurement; solve problems using appropriate tools, understanding that they can be solved in many ways; recognize shapes and use double and triple entry tables.
