5 reasons to visit us
1. Scandinavian system of organizing the day in the kindergarten
Scandinavian system is based on individual approach to each child and deep respect to his/her personality. Despite the precise day’s routine in the kindergarten, each child has a right of choice and expression of his/her wishes.
For example, smorgasbord for breakfast, lunch and dinner gives children a possibility to choose the food they prefer. Children also choose the kind of the midday rest: sleeping in the bedroom, quiet games in the game-room or reading books in the library. The children express their wishes through independent choice of different kinds of art or in their free moving through the kindergarten territory. No matter where the child is or what he/she does, he/she will always be safe and watched after.
2. Bilingual language environment
It’s no secret, that those children who grow in bilingual families, adopt both parents’ languages quite well. These children don’t experience language boundaries or difficulties in understanding the fluent speech.
“Karlsson’s Cottage” is a “bilingual family” for our students. The children spend all day in close communication with both Russian and English-speaking educators. They don’t sap at the boring rules or sit at the desks. They simply talk, play, sing songs and live a bright and unforgettable childhood surrounded by loving people.
3. Taking care of children’s health
Our pediatrician makes an individual program of immune system strengthening for each child. All the children do air and sun bathing, have feet massage and strengthening exercises on a daily basis.
We pay special attention to daily walking in the open air. There is regular cleaning and disinfecting in the rooms. There are heated floors and comfortable ecological furniture with rounded edges in the game-rooms. All the staff members have health cards. Our little guests will also be insured against accidents when being at the Cottage or outside.
4. Comprehensive children’s development
There are daily lessons at the Karlsson’s Cottage, which contribute to prompt and in-depth development of the children. The educational process is planned so that the little ones wouldn’t feel any outer pressure. Each lesson is a discreet and fun game, during which children gain new skills, develop their unique talents and abilities and learn to overcome difficulties!
The program includes leading pedagogical groundworks of Doman, Zaytsev, Cuisenaire, Dienesh, Voskobovich, Montessory and also elements the theory of Inventive Problem Solving and Eidetics.
Every day our children do different activities: role-plays, reading in different languages, all sorts of art, experiments with natural inputs, free constructing and many others.
