During our work we can guarantee parents’ individual approach to their child. What is more, to be most effective in the individual work – selected classes are led in small groups – children can take part in it according to their interests, individual abilities and needs.
In order to make sure that the development of our children runs as harmoniously as possible, during the whole teaching and educational process we are supported by the “Osiek” psychological-educational guidance center. This cooperation gives us the opportunity to quickly and effectively respond to the difficulties, but it is also an opportunity to support children in developing their individual skills and talents. Thanks to the presence of specialists in speech therapy and education we give our children the opportunity to equalize educational opportunities. The presence of a psychologist and his constant contact with the tutor makes the adaptation process in preschool run smoothly and without unnecessary anxiety of parents.
In our work with the child, we always keep in mind the overriding role of play, which is a natural form of activity and the acquisition of knowledge about the world. There are green areas around the preschool, a forest and a nearby playground.
We offer a wide range of physical activities, which take place both outdoors and inside the preschool (we have a recreation room). The wide range of sports activities is complemented by activities that develop creativity and innovation. Our daily schedule also includes space for drama, sensoplastics, a lesson in our library corner and, using new technologies, we introduce elements of Spanish. The didactic activities are appropriately balanced and are so placed in the rhythm of the day that the children are provided with good conditions not only for individual development, but also for group work and free play, so important in the development of every child.
At the International Preschool of Gdansk we believe that through close contact with nature we can more fully support a child’s development. Our new location gives us a unique opportunity to make use of the natural resources of the Tri-City Landscape Park, so we want forest education, which provides so many benefits, to be a regular part of the schedule. Assuming there is no bad weather, we intend to leave the preschool rooms every day to explore the surroundings, learn about the plants, track the animals that live there and become experts in forest games.
