Kindergartens

Our one-day, five hour-module training for kindergarten teachers not only provide theoretical knowledge but also gives practical tools and knowledge to practitioners using specific situation exercises and role-playing games. The interactive training consists of 4 intertwined elements: the focus of the transfer of the aspect that all children, whether or not they are intact, can and do play at a level appropriate to their level of development. The adult’s knowledge and attention should be to recognize this level and to bring the child into the form of play he / she performs with pleasure and to which others can easily connect. We don’t have to think of any viciousness: for example, a small child with autistic marks will not be able to sing or play circles with the others, but it may be a pleasure to shake a rattle or a little drum. Or, for example, if a small child is constantly hugging his companions, it might mean that there is a need for extra attention or physical support. There are countless creative solutions available for the teacher, who should not be mistaken for his / her task to diagnose the child – simply to support him / her in the given situation, to move it in the game, with an infinitely simple solution. In fact, it often encourages the whole team with a single gesture of how to play differently or just the same with a partner who is not exactly the same as they are – and can be even more interesting. The second module is the most popular element of the training: the board game. While playing, participants simulate the operation of a community with role play, cards, and find quick and easy solutions for intact and injured children. Then, they analyze them in Module 3 with the support of trainers, thereby enhancing common knowledge, best practices, and the confidence of professionals, as they also need support and specific tools in the integration process.
