Pelita’s Kindergarten offers children the possibility to use their natural, innate ability to acquire language through play, and so to understand and be able to express themselves in English. In our kindergarten we have a maximum of 21 children who are divided into three groups, making it possible to teach them age appropriately.
Creativity is a primary aim. Children are given the chance to explore different materials and techniques. Freedom of expression is promoted and their imagination stimulated through the creative arts. Every child is born with the innate capacity to learn a language ie imitate sounds, understand words, then later form sentences, until they can speak perfectly. We capitalise on this ability by teaching very young children to speak English effortlessly. For the children this is experienced as an exciting journey into a new world. There is no stress involved – on the contrary…
…it is great fun!
The kindergarten’s (pre-school) philosophy is based on the English school curriculum combined with the needs of children with English as a first and second language.
Our aim is to give children the chance to acquire or keep (children returning from abroad) the Englishlanguage as well as have an excellent foundation in literacy, numeracy, creativitiy, social and emotional skills.
We also apply some Montessori aspects such as the aspect of “life skills”.
The 21 children aged from 3-6 years are divided into three groups and looked after by two qualified primary school teachers as well as a nursery nurse.
The kindergarten is situated in a quiet cul-de-sac in Hemmingen about 2km south of Hannover.
