Program of our kindergarten is based on what we consider the most important in educating and rising children.
Education is the sphere of life with huge importance. In our kindergartens we want to rise children in the spirit of truth, right and beauty, getting to know human rights and respect toward others. Favored values have great importance for the development of the human being and they build his identity. In our kindergarten we are based on universal values, diligence, tolerance and respect toward others, treating each child individually.
Happy Kids’ program is oriented on comprehensive development of children, broadening their skills and creating efficiency of assimilating knowledge through active work. We learn children independency, distinguishing and naming emotions, we develop concentration and imagination, we allow to share comments about the surrounding reality, we create conditions for assimilating world, we develop manual and communication skills, we enhance self-esteem and develop empathy.
We realize the program base using the packet of the MAC publisher ‘Odkrywam siebie’ ['I'm discovering myself']
‘Odkrywam siebie’ is consistent educational concept from 3 years old for a year kindergarten preparation based on Howard Gardner’s theory of the multiple intelligences. The series eliminates the danger of repeating the material or ignoring important matters. To each packet the child is given two out of four activities: polish studies, mathematical, drama, musical.
Mathematic classes are not detailed in the schedule of the day but they are specialized general-developmental classes based on the program base.
‘Dziecięca matematyka’ [‘Children’s Mathematic’] written by Prof. Edyta Gruszczyk-Kolczyńska is the concept of helping out the mental development of the children by mathematic education realized in such a way to assure success at school for the future students.
According to the program our pupils not only assimilate with the world of plants and animals and geological features but they also learn to see and experience their beauty. Direct contact with nature allows to get new skills and experiences which will surely pay off in the future. Our program also considers issues connected with ecology. Through popularization of ecological knowledge we effectively create attitude compatible with ecological ethics. Natural education is not detailed in the schedule of the day but it is specialized general-developmental class based on the program base.
In ‘Happy Kids’ we pay attention to developing artistic predispositions of the child and turning him on to art. Our pupils have a daily contact with music, movement, dance and theatre. Every day we organize creative games, artistic classes during which children can fulfill their ideas, play theatre or play instruments. We regularly invite travelling theatres to our kindergartens.

Trip is a valuable supplement and the crowning achievement of the educational and upbringing process because it allows to fight off the verbalism of teaching, implements the excitement and supports educational classes hold in the kindergarten. Trip brings great profits for the child. As a result of the trip kindergarten pupils assimilate specific objects and authentic phenomenon about which they have learnt in the kindergarten, they confront the knowledge with practice and reality.
One of the most important tasks of the teacher is wakening up and developing of natural interests of children that is why in Happy Kids kindergarten each month we organize trips with subject matter connected with the program. We take advantage of it the best as we can, remembering that the main principle of working with children is ‘learning by entertaining, entertaining by learning’.
Trips are additionally paid.
