We have been carrying out play groups since 2009. The groups serve for the goals enhancing the social interaction with peers, helping children get ready for school, and supporting their developmental capacities (cognitive, language, motor, and social-emotional) while having fun with their peers.
Each child’s individual differences are essential for our work. We support each child with appropriate affect, gesture, language and sensory support that is sensitive to each individual child to facilitate their developmental capacities within the group.
Staff: In each group there is a Psychologist, M.A. supervising the group and there are shadow teachers giving one to one support to each child.
Group Program: Programs include structured activity time, free play time and snack/lunch time. Structured activities consist of circle time, art, craft time, story time. During free play time we support children with DIR/Floortime approach to facilitate their ability to share attention with one another, to engage and be engaged, to read and respond to one another’s invitation to play and to sustain interactions during spontaneous play.
