KINDERGARTEN IN TÚRBULA SCHOOL
Kindergarten Túrbula Petits
The kindergarten Túrbula Petits was born in the 2012-13 school year in response to the continued demand of the families of the Túrbula School and the need for schooling of children in the area in the 0 to 3 year old stage. The new project is backed by 60 years of experience at the Túrbula School.
WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT
We base our work on the individualized care of children and their families, promoting activities that encourage their involvement and participation and ensure close collaboration between the Kindergarten and the family.
Based on NEURODIDACTICS, we consider that motivation, attention, memory and sensory perception are the basic devices that must be taken into account in order for there to be solid learning: We only learn from what motivates us. Therefore MOTIVATION is an essential element for learning. At an early age the intrinsic motivation of students is very favorable for our work but we must also take care to encourage extrinsic motivation through attractive proposals for our students.
ATTENTION is the basic psychological process for processing information. Aware that at this stage for us, the children’s attention spans are short, we will keep this in mind when preparing and presenting the activities. There can be no learning if we do not memorize what we experience, observe, feel or smell, so we will promote activities that require the exercise of our children’s MEMORY.
The way in which our students perceive the world around them is through the senses, so our proposals will be aimed at stimulating SENSORY PERCEPTION.
With all this as a basis, in addition to programming the activities we are very aware of the work focused on the acquisition of the SKILLS AND CAPABILITIES that students must achieve according to the evolutionary stage in which find. The first years of a child’s life are the time when more changes take place with less time. Therefore, our daily actions are focused on promoting motor, cognitive, socio-affective and personal autonomy development:
Development of personal autonomy
We will focus on the acquisition of autonomy, laying the foundations for what they will need in their passage to the 2nd Cycle of Early Childhood Education. That is why we will work on HABITS AND ROUTINES, which refer to food, personal hygiene, rest, order, relationships and work. Therefore, from home we will be promoting, through different pedagogical proposals, the acquisition of these skills and abilities.
Our METHODOLOGY is characterized by being motivating, active and individualized taking into account the interests and individualities of each child. It is based on experimentation, manipulation, observation and discovery, where boys and girls are the protagonists of their own learning. The contents are worked through two proposals, on the one hand we will make a QUARTERLY PROJECT that will be a joint work between the students, the teachers and the implication of the families in which activities will be programmed around a center of interest.
On the other hand, in the Nursery we prepare SPACES FOR ENVIRONMENTS through which our students move freely according to their interests, promoting their autonomy, personal security, self-esteem and self-confidence.
