Goals and Objectives

Our aim is to provide an adequate, good program, which includes everything for all levels of development for the child: social, physical, intellectual, emotional, self-concept, and language development needs. Social Needs: the child's need to interact with friends and adults, to participate as a member of a group, and to have opportunities to learn and develop social skills. Physical needs: children need both active and quiet times, activities indoor and outdoor, in safe and healthy surroundings along with nutrition and rest. Intellectual needs: children need to be able to explore, observe, know and understand objects and events in the environment. It includes the need to develop language skills, listening skills and creative thinking. Emotional needs: the need to be and feel accepted for oneself and to feel respected and secure. Gaining independence, taking initiative, expressing anger appropriately, coping with frustration and being able to give and receive affection. Self-Concept needs: the need to feel valued as an individual, for whom one is, to develop positive self-esteem to feel accepted for one's differences with a right to acknowledge one's own difficulties and celebrate one's own joys.
