Our methods of work with children

Teaching methods used in our original Polish and English programme:

 

  • Glottodidactics by prof. Bronisław Rocławski - language education approach which goal is to prepare children for reading and writing, as well as to create reading habits and develop spelling awareness. It stimulates logical thinking and problems solving by encouraging children to discover spelling rules and patterns while playing with phones, letter sounds and letters as symbols. By using elements of this method in English education even 3-years-olds  can work on the whole Polish and English alphabet.

    By playing with letters children learn reading which helps them to discover the world around them. From 2005 we have been cooperating with  prof. Bronisław Rocławski in order to promote the use of this method.

 

  • Letterland - It is an approach to teaching writing and reading, which helps to develop phonemic awareness and teaches the knowledge of letter shapes. It includes many songs, tasks and multimedia activities which support the process of learning. The teaching is multisensory and includes games and elements of TPR (Total Physical Response) method.

 

  • prof. Edyta Gruszczyk- Kolczyńska’s Math for Children - The aim of this method is to support mental development of a child on a math field, as well as to build positive thinking and self confidence in children. What is more, this method prepares children to learn math at school and stimulate logical thinking. Thanks to clever and funny activities it presents math as interesting and entertaining field of education.

 

  • Metoda Klanzy - It helps children to develop in safe atmosphere full of  trust and acceptance, regardless of age and abilities. It triggers creativity, facilitates contacts with others and surrounding world. That method releases anxiety, fear, muscle and mental tensions. It engages all the senses and teaches cooperation with others. Klanza method brigs a great deal of satisfaction and enjoyment. It is accompanied by songs, dances, chants and Klanza sheet. It is used mostly during adaptation meetings.

 

  • Origami - It’s an art of paper folding. Manipulating with paper with the use of both hands, levels muscle tension on both sides of child’s body. Folding paper can develop memory, concentration, hand-eye coordination and spatial coordination. It teaches patience and precision. Thanks to Origami we achieve integrity in the actions that we undertake in order to promote the development of child’s critical thinking and problem solving skills. That method supports our maths education during Polish and English classes.

 

  • Sherborne Developmental Movement - The main aim of this method is to satisfy child’s need of movement, relaxation, expression and creation. Basic objectives within Sherborne Developmental Movement include the overall development of body awareness, space awareness and awareness of other people, including interacting and developing relationships with others. Taking into consideration its benefits, we use Sherborn Developmental Movement in 2,5 and 3 years old groups, as a team building and group integration method.

 

We connect therapeutic methods, facilitating child's development to our daily work:

 

  • Good Start Method - It is suitable children who are above 2. Their main goal is to support psychomotor development by offering properly designed forms of play. It is used to prevent, diagnose and correct school failures. This method is also used to prepare preschoolers for reading and writing. What is important, it aims at shaping child’s lateralization, body awareness (its left and right side) and space awareness. ‘ Good Start Method’ is a multisensory and active approach towards early childhood education. 

 

  • Paul Denisson’s method - Includes relaxing and energizing activities that serves the integration of brain hemispheres in order to make them work more effectively. The method supports child’s natural development and if it used patiently and persistently, it helps to overcome various child’s difficulties.
