Emotions and social relationships
In our daily interaction, we try to accompany the children in their development into socially competent people.
It is important to us:

  • Perceive your own feelings and needs and articulate them
  • Respectful interaction with each other
  • Sharing games and craft materials
  • Helpfulness
  • Empathy, open and sensitive handling of the feelings of others
  • No use of physical force
  • No use of verbal provocation
  • Enforcement of your own needs – self-assertion
  • Perception of the needs of others
  • Increased sense of responsibility
  • Mutual consideration and tolerance
  • Increased communication skills
  • Cooperation and teamwork
  • Development of conflict solution strategies
  • Building a rule consciousness
  • Extension of frustration tolerance

Language and communication
Language is the basis for shaping social relationships. Through language experiences can be communicated; through them it is possible to trigger, control and exchange human behavior. Language plays a major part in planning actions, absorbing, processing and passing on information.
Language acquisition and language use are highly environmentally determined and dependent on learning.
It is important to us:

  • Let the children experience the richness of language
  • Realize language support while dealing with the children
  • Use situational and age-appropriate vocabulary
  • Consolidate existing information and incentivize new things
  • Create a pleasant atmosphere

Movement and play
Children have a strong need for exercise. They need space to gain movement experiences with their bodies, with different materials and with other children. Children experience joy and self-confidence and get to know their body better, there is an increase in their well-being. Exercise helps them cope with stress, emotional stress and crises, as well as to reduce aggression.
Natural and motor processes and experiences guided by us are fundamental components of a holistic development promotion: they open up a wealth of possibilities for experience, action and design for the children, in which the children sit down with spatial conditions.
It is important to us:

  • Spending a lot of time in nature.
  • Realizing that people are only a guest in nature
  • Choosing suitable clothing according to the weather
  • Accepting challenges
  • Overcoming obstacles
  • Perceiving nature with all your senses
  • Familiarize yourself with physical conditions

Creativity

Children with creative competence question familiar patterns of thought and action and find extraordinary answers to challenges. Creativity is evident in various artistic forms of expression.

It is important to us:

 

  • Offer various creative materials, such as paint, paper, cardboard, brushes, scissors, adhesive, pens, wood and modelling compound
  • Possibility to self-realization by building, constructing, painting and tinkering
  • Present your own view of reality
  • Use fantasy freely
  • Inspire each other
  • Try new things
  • Develop your own games with new rules
  • Get to know the nature of materials or the use of tools
