Why " MINI-GARDEN "

  • We pay a lot of attention to walking on the street .
  • In the green area near Happy Nest there is a playground made of natural materials , where children get the most out of walking . Obstacle course , wooden structures, houses , materials for construction and construction , games with sand and water , a green area all allow you to spend time outdoors having something fun and useful to do .
  • The main activity of children in our institution is play .
  • This means that children learn by playing . The teacher creates an environment for the game , in which the learning process takes place constantly . The
    teacher becomes a constant partner of children in the game , which leads them on the path of Discovery and Knowledge .

Instructors from Canada and Ukraine update the curriculum throughout the year , applying an individual approach to each group .
Groups are divided by age .

Children study in a specially equipped classroom according to the method of Maria Montessori , which is harmoniously combined with the methods of our institution .

the Montessori group we use 5 main forms of work :

  • Presentation – the teacher demonstrates to the child or group of children how to use this or that educational material correctly .
  • Work in a “circle” – group work and thematic communication of children with the teacher .
  • Independent work of a child with Montessori – material under the supervision of a teacher .
  • Collective creative work .
  • Rhythmically music lessons .
All these types of work are interconnected and complementary .
In order for each child to be able to analyse the material and improve the skills they need , we arrange the materials sequentially , from simple to more complex , using the method of zoning the room .
  • Area of practical skills . Exercises with materials from this area prepare the child for everyday life and help to acquire skills of consideration and polite behavior .
    This corner contains exercises with water , activities for pouring , transferring , sorting, etc.
  • Sensory development zone . Contains materials for exercises to determine the qualities of color , shape , size , weight , temperature , odor , surface structure, etc.
  • Mathematical development zone . The materials of this zone acquaint the child with the basic mathematical concepts according to the child’s age : acquaintance with/understanding of geometric figures and three-dimensional bodies and their qualities , the concepts of “many” , “little” , “less” , “more” , the ratio of quantity to its mathematical symbols .
  • Language development zone . The materials of this area help the child to expand and enrich the vocabulary , learn to use generic concepts , verbs , adjectives , accustoming the hand for writing , develop phonemic hearing and more .
  • Space education zone . Contains materials on natural sciences that help the child to organize the perception of the world around him .
Happy Kids 1
