Learning how to become a team player
The all-round education of your child also involves the acquisition of social skills. In our social life, in school and at work we need to be able to interact with one another.
The success of this interaction depends largely on social skills. In all situations, while learning, practising sport, listening to music or playing, children learn to
- respect others and call for respect in return
- resolve conflicts by explaining their own point of view and negotiating compromises
- discuss issues with individual partners and in groups
- follow rules
- offer and receive help
- accept and deal with challenges
During the entire period which children spend with us we provide a model for these attitudes and values, and ensure that they are communicated to the children.
In all everyday situations the children are encouraged to adopt resilient physical and psychological attitudes.
In preparation for their transition to primary school this is rounded off by the "It’s good to show courage" project.
