Planet4youth. Kindergarten

Blessed J. Matulaitis family support center

Vilnius, Lithuania

Activity description

Daily activities are based on non formal education. This is kindergarten, not a school so most of the time children are playing and we stimulate them to be creative during these free games and we teach them how to behave in the group, how to respect and take care of each other. To conclude - we want let the kids to feel homey and enjoy their age and childhood.The age of children are 2-6 years, so they speak only Lithuanian, some of them just started to develop their language skills.The role of adults to preschool children is very important. They need to have someone to consult about something they are curious at the moment, to show what they have done or created (“look, I build a car”) or just to feel safe and to know that someone who can take care of you is always near. We see You as an adult, who, at the very beginning is the one, who just tries to be close the kids, say “labas” (Hello), observe the games kids are playing and be the example.
