Children learn differently from adults. They collect their experiences with their ‘hand, heart and head’. They learn through acting. Daniela Braun
Education in kindergarten, which is supposed to prepare kids for school, is not only remembering letters, numbers or different concepts.
Most importantly, it is supporting correct emotional growth. Our mission during this process of children’s education is building their autonomy and showing them how they can draw happiness and satisfation from learning.
Physical activity is a natural kid’s need and a base for a right development of a young organism. Because of that sport plays a significant role in our daily schedule.
Corrective and general gymnastics, judo, football, are among favourite activities. A Child’s Day in our kindergarten is a Sports Day with a lot of activities, competitions and attractions.
Judo in Domino is now a tradition. Our coach is Ms Magdalena Korfanty. We are happy to say that some of the kids presented in the photo (from 2011) have become successful in this sport.
‘I would teach children music, physics and philosophy; but most importantly music, for the patterns in music and all the arts are the keys to learning’ Plato.
Music education in Domino begins in the youngest groups. At everyday classes of rhythmic gymnastics the children learn singing, playing different instruments like boomwhackers, xylophones and glockenspiels.
They take part in concerts of classical, pop and folk music. Moreover, they give concerts during the kindergarten performances or singing competitions. In the photo our band ‘Domino Notes’.
Theatre is a great adventure allowing kids to boost their natural talents and creativity. During rehearsals and performances children learn how to work in a group and how to overcome stage fright.
Every performance prepared by them is an intense experience for adults and a huge success for children. Several times a year we invite real actors who entertain kids with special shows.
Another unforgettable moments are trips to a theatre where at workshops little artists have a chance to learn the art of acting from actors.
Adventure with a book
‘A house with no books is like a beach with no sun’ José Martí
And what about a kindergarten with no books?
A book is a constant companion to our kids, when they play and when they rest. Teachers always have time to read to kids about something extraordinary.
Visiting a nearby library and meeting with favourite book characters is also really appealing. Our bookcrossing shelf is popular both with parents and kids.
We would like to share the joy of reading and release books. Please visit the website: www.bookcrossing.pl
Programming on the carpet
Encoding and programming classes are a wonderful fun and a lesson of logical thinking, but most importantly they teach very young children how to use modern technology in a smart way.
Birthday parties is a tradition in our kindergarten as these are amazing and unforgettable moments not only for a birthday person.
Preparations shared with the others, making congratulatory scrolls, giving best wishes and taking part in a birthday meal is a great lesson of manners and good behaviour.
