Philosophy and Program Description
The first five years of childhood are the most important in development and learning. “Alenka” provides warm and inviting atmosphere and lessons that help develop the whole child-physically, intellectually, emotionally and socially. Full day program designed for all ages. Children develop “age appropriate” learning skills, including language development, crafts, music/movement, and of course PLAY is one of the most important parts of our day. During play the children learn not only play skills, but also life skills. We work to make each day a happy learning experience for your child by setting a balance of individual and group activities, which help the children develop their self-esteem, cognitive skills, creativity, and awareness of the environment. Alenka Academy also takes into account the cultures and ethnicities of the children. The primary language of the children is the base for any new language for a child; therefore, the primary (Russian language) will be welcomed and reinforced among children. The main scheme is that each child has a unique personality with his or her own needs, strengths, and interests. Teachers manifest their respect for children by encouraging them to think for themselves, make their own decisions, work toward their own solutions, and express their own ideas and feelings.
