Phased Acclimatization in Our Preschool
The settling time is extremely important for the child, the parents and the staff. We attach great importance to an individual and optimal acclimatization plan for the child. The child is slowly introduced to his needs in the daily routine, and can be accompanied by a parent.
We are guided by the principles of Maria Montessori
With the support of the teacher, the child decides what, where, how, with whom and how long it wants to do something. The child is given the opportunity to activate self-reliance and to concentrate fully in the subject they learn.
The Montessori Method was founded and developed by the Italian doctor and educator Maria Montessori (1870 -1905). She also found during her work with children, that the learning outcomes of children are much greater if they can choose their own activities. Hence she developed her educational system.
While playing with the “Everyday life” material, the children develop a sense of responsibility for the environment.
Working with sensorial material teaches children to understand what they see. For each sense region there is a material which is varying by difficulty level. The purpose and aim of Sensorial material is for the child to acquire clear, conscious, information and to be able to then make classifications in his environment.
The mathematical material corresponds to the sensory-motor needs of the child and is closely allied with the sensory material. The child gets well acquainted with quantity, geometrical solids, volume as well as measures of length and volume and weight, thus acquiring the idea of numbers.
The child’s vocabulary is influenced by the environment and surroundings. Here the children learn to speak in clear sentences, learn rhymes, sing songs, make conversations, watch illustrative books, all these help the development of their language.

By observing the environment (Space, Earth, Geography, childhood environment, history, plants and animals, etc.) the child acquires a need to have a close relationship between nature and the living beings and to learn to take a responsibility for his role in the universe.
