Jump Educational Activities reflect six pillars of the Berlin Early Years Programme.
They are combined in five educational areas of Jump Bilingual Kindergarten.
Focal points in young children’s education are:
Your child will learn a lot about health and their body. Topics such as personal hygiene are covered, along with healthy food and diet. The early childhood professionals also help children learn how to relax and to rest whenever they need to.
This pillar is reflected in different activities throughout the day, as well as during Sports Educational Activity.
Social and cultural life
All children are welcome regardless of their family of origin, their cultural roots or the length of time that they have been in Germany. Traditions, cultures, values and languages are respected and explored as topics for learning. Children with and without disabilities play and learn together, which enables all of the children to gain valuable social experiences.
Communication: language, writing and cultural and media-based communication
In early years and family day-care centres, children are encouraged to speak during all of the activities that they engage in throughout the day. Language is developed while at play, while setting the table, eating, tidying up, reading books, during circle time and when talking to children and staff. Their growing curiosity about writing and numbers is also addressed and encouraged. The centres also explore the issue of how to deal with media.
Both of the above pillars are reflected in different activities throughout the day, as well as during Language and Communication Educational Activity.
The arts: visual design, music and theatre
The activities undertaken within this pillar are aimed at providing your child with various opportunities to creatively express their needs, emotions and interests. Creative forms of expression are especially important for children who are just getting used to German.
This pillar is reflected in different activities throughout the day, as well as during Art and Music Educational Activities.
This pillar is not about learning equations or mathematics for school-aged children; rather, the aim is to introduce your child to numbers, space and time, the ability to sort things into a particular order and to learn to estimate and make comparisons. Through play, children come into contact with different patterns and sets of numbers and this can be used to develop a basis for mathematical thinking.
Nature, environment and technology
Children are very good observers. By developing hypotheses about the things that they have seen or experienced, by searching for explanations and by trying out lots of different things, they gain insights into nature and the environment. Through experimenting, children learn how things work and they learn how to ask questions and how to search for answers together with other children.
activities serve as a basis for developing a basic understanding of mathematics and science.
Both of the above pillars are reflected in different activities throughout the day, as well as during Science Educational Activity and Math Activities before the school entrance.
We are also proud to be the part of the Little Researches Program “Haus der Kleinen Froscher”
