Located in Olari, the nursery operates through three different group spaces in close proximity. These different groups cater for children aged 1 to 7 years old. Our groups here are called Owls, Tigers, and Spiders. All our environments offer a cozy homely atmosphere for the children as well as varied resources for play and creative projects. All our Olari groups are located close to parks and forests, providing the children with many opportunities to explore and investigate nature.
Sensory play is a lot of fun and plays an important role in children’s development alongside it can be adapted for different ages, needs, and abilities.
Heuristic play promotes curiosity and exploration. As children select, manipulate, explore, compare items they discover what the object can and can’t do.
ICT opportunities allow children to develop their mathematical thinking and practice their technological skills.
Trips are regularly organized so that children can acquaint themselves with their surrounding environment. Trips can also offer unique cultural learning experiences.
Children and educators share their thoughts and experiment with different working approaches. They have the opportunity to experience joy of learning and playing together.
In our gym spaces, hoops, bean bags, soft balls and gym equipment are set out inspiring the children to experience the joy of moving and being physically active in a variety of ways.
Yoga for children is a great approach to develop strength, flexibility and coordination.
