How to prepare a child for school, by not jeopardizing its nature? Simple by fostering child’s curiosity. Children and scientists share an important common trait: each answer causes a new question. Adults should encourage a child to critically observe the world and to search for the answers, not simply to adopt and reproduce knowledge without understanding it. By searching for questions and answers, preschoolers create their own authenical world – the world in which they gain authority, self-awareness, responsibility and self-confidence. The world in which they learn to think. To be part of the community. To nurture their emotional spaces. To live in a harmony with nature. Such a world easily exists in a preschool Dunav Platz.
This revolutionary pedagogical project was initiated in accordance with the cognitive specificity of children’s development at the preschool age. Children aged 5 and 6 years are naturally resilient and they easily adapt to specific spaces and programs of Dunav Platz, relying on the knowledge and experience acquired at an earlier age at Salaš kindergarten.
Children’s curiosity is further encouraged by professionally qualified teachers. Together with preschool teachers, children work with natural and social scientists which are experienced in working with children, presenting them their whole personality, enthusiasm, knowledge and skills.
