Kindergarten Orange Ciuchcia Bemowo I is a place where children discover the world, develop their interests, make first great friendships. We want our preschoolers to acquire knowledge and skills enabling them to start successfully in the next stage of life, which is school. We offer our preschoolers bilingual groups as well as proven didactic and educational programs.
Central to your child's school experience is the underlying curriculum taught in the classroom. "Curriculum" refers to both what is taught and how it's taught. When considering the different curricula outlined in the next few pages, keep in mind that few schools fall neatly into one category or another. Most schools' curricula comprise a blend of best practices drawn from multiple curriculum types. Having said that, most schools do have a general overall curriculum type. These are identified for each school on OurKids.net.
Primary Curriculum: Progressive
Progressive (sometimes called "inquiry based" or "discovery based") curricula use students' interests and their natural curiosity as the driver for instruction. Teachers provide materials, experiences, tools and resources necessary for students to investigate a topic or issue. Students are then encouraged to explore, reflect on their findings, and discuss answers, solutions, and insights.
Secondary Curriculum: Play-based
What Przedszkole Bemowo I says: Our education is based on the multiple intelligence theory of Prof. Howard Gardner, which assumes that every person is capable and unique, and that he has his own unique profile of intelligence that he can develop throughout his life. As a kindergarten, we set ourselves the goal of finding and developing their greatest talents and abilities in children
Preschool/K Curriculum approach at Przedszkole Bemowo I : Play-based
Przedszkole Bemowo I has a Play-based approach to Preschool/K Curriculum (as opposed to Montessori, Waldorf, Reggio Emilia, Academic approach).
[Show: About Play-based?]
Play-based programs are the most common type of preschool and Kindergarten, and are founded on the belief young children learn best through play. Largely open-ended and minimally structured, play-based programs aim to develop social skills and a love of attending school. "Pre-academic" skills are taught, but in a more indirect way than at, say, an Academic program: through children playing in different "stations" set up around the classroom, which children choose on their own volition. Stations often contain an indirect lesson or developmental goal. Play-based classrooms are highly social and active.
What Przedszkole Bemowo I says: Play is a natural way for a child to explore the world and gather experience. The child's environment must be organized so as to provide interesting cognitive suggestions appropriate for the child's stage of development. In our kindergarten, every element on the shelf, every element of the room's decor is there only in response to the needs of the child and serves its comprehensive development.
Academic Culture approach at Przedszkole Bemowo I : Supportive
Przedszkole Bemowo I has a Supportive approach to Academic Culture (as opposed to Rigorous approach).
[Show: About Supportive?]
A school with a "supportive" academic culture focuses more on process than short-term outcomes: academic performance is a welcomed side-benefit, but not the driving focus. This does not mean the school lacks standards, or has low expectations for its students: a school can have a supportive academic culture and still light the fire of ambition in its students. It does mean, however, that the school provides a less intensive culture than schools with a "rigorous" academic classification, and is focused more simply on instilling a love of learning and life-long curiosity.
What Przedszkole Bemowo I says: We base the educational program on such educational aspects as relationships and a sense of security. We respect the right of children to be treated with the same respect as adults.
We do not do for the child what he can do by himself. We provide preschoolers with as many opportunities as possible to practice new skills and learn from mistakes.

Support for moderate-to-severe special needs:
Formal adjustments are made to the delivery of lessons to help mitigate the learning difficulty or exceptionality. The underlying content and expectations remain unchanged with accommodations, however. (Example: allowing a student to write tests in a quieter room).
The underlying content and expectations are modified and/or simplified for the sake of the student. (Examples: allowing student to use a calculator on a test when other students can’t; allowing students to bring word-banks or “cheat sheets” into certain tests, etc)
Research-based therapeutic measures that target and ameliorate the underlying weakness.

I am aware of the importance of good and early education of children - this is what our kindergarten provides.
