Kindergarten Practices & Guidelines
The KG provides a warm home-like atmosphere and an opportunity for the children to learn through imitation and activity. Creative play is inspired by the environment of both the home and the KG, and plays a major role in the KG. Through creative play children are able to work through and develop capacities necessary for later life.
The child is reassured by the recurring rhythm of the day, the week and the year through the repitition of seasonal activities, festivals and songs.
Teachers also work with a regular rhythm to morning and weekly activities, for example: music and verse accompanied by movement and gesture; stories, puppets, practical activities of gardening, cooking, sewing, washing and cleaning; artistic activities of drawing, painting and modelling.
All are experienced with enthusiasm and joy within a regular rhythm upon which the child can rely.
