EDUCATIONAL PROGRAM

Ability to learn quickly is especially important for early childhood. Children have a constant need to discover and the most natural way, is to play we put a lot of emphasis on this in Čiperkov.

Our training program is a proven practice. We use modern educational methodologies and we use the knowledge of humanistic and developmental psychology and pedagogy and the elements of the Montessori program. We build on the concept of “optimal experience” – a flow that highlights the importance of a strong passion, a sense of joy and fulfilment. In practice, this means that the child is perfectly focused on what is being done and is learning effectively.

Teachers carefully plan the processes leading to child development and we regularly consult with parents.

The areas of development of our educational program are:
Social Development – Speech development, strong self-reliance, adaptation to a new environment, building a relationship.
Cognitive development – senso-motoric intelligence, symbolic and pre-conceptional thinking that is deepening through discovering.
Motion development – based on developmental kinesiology – refers to fine and gross motor skills, correct posture and positioning.
Creativity Development – Supporting fantasy and deepening it in day-to-day activities.
Developing pre-mathematical ideas – colour and shape recognition, counting and spatial orientation.
Understanding the outside world – Relationship to nature its protection, understanding of the environment and natural laws.

OUR APROACH

Here in Čiperkov we like sustainability in terms of materials. That’s why we choose the most natural materials and we try to avoid the artificial ones – the toys are very mostly wooden ones, we also try to avoid the plastic cups for drinking and the trays, rather we prefer to utilise ceramic dishes.

We’re betting on simplicity. Today, there is a huge number of toys on the market and different stimulus for children. We believe it’s important to keep the balance and not too much to hurt the child, so we choose the path of simplicity, and our motto is less is more.

We are trying to go the golden middle way. Modern technology is a great thing, with our children having the opportunity to use an interactive whiteboard. However, we are not supporters of tablet and phones in children’s hands.

Establishing cooperation with parents. We consult everything what can help the child’s personality development.

Později začala studovat a věnovat se naplno své velké vášni – tanci. Na škole navštěvovala hodiny baletu (první roky taneční přípravy), moderního tance (jazz, contemporary – Marta Graham), současného tance (techniku José Limon) a lidového tance. Během studia (od 10 do 14 let) tancovala v baletu Louskáček, Bajadera a v opeře Tajemný klíč v Slovenském Národním Divadle.

Svůj vztah k dětem charakterizuje slovy:
„Děti jsem měla vždy ráda a mám k nim stále velmi blízko. Proto mě těší, že už pět let můžu učit. Práce s dětmi je náročná, ale pro mě velmi osvobozující. Vždy mě potěší si odpočinout od „dospěláckých“ problémů:). Je pro mě důležité jim umět naslouchat například při tvorbě nové choreografie. Kladu důraz na týmovou práci, proto vše řešíme společně a vždy se snažím najít způsob, aby to bylo inspirující pro každého. Pak je výsledek opravdu harmonický“.
