Early Education (Nursery)
Early Education is designed to:
- prepare children for a happy, healthy, responsible and successful life;
- develop children’s personality and abilities;
- support children’s learning potential;
- develop respect for others and the environment;
- teach children to respect and appreciate children’s own cultural and social identity, its values and those of others;
- promote a European spirit.
The primary cycle covers five years. In the primary school, the focus is on developing the mother tongue, mathematics and the first foreign language, but art, music, physical education, discovery of the world and religion/ethics are equally important - as are the “European Hours”, where mixed nationality groups meet for a variety of activities.
The portfolio in nursery and primary school
The holistic approach chosen in the "Early Education" curriculum requires a method of assessment which adequately reflects the children’s achievements in their school career, namely the portfolio. It is constructed by the children.
The portfolio may include a variety of visual and audio documents: texts, drawings, comments, symbols, diagrams, photos, videos, sound recordings, interviews, results, etc.
Social psychological support service and networks
In our school, we have a psychosocial advisory and counselling service.
