Play and Learn Philosophy
Kista International Preschool’s philosophy is play and learn inspired by Reggio Emilia. We strive to recognize the daily learning that takes place in a childs life.
Whether a child is putting on their socks, washing their hands, sharing with a friend, climbing stairs, learning to read or doing a mathematics problem, children are learning.
We believe in creating a positive environment where learning is encouraged and supported. We want children at Kista to acquire the ability, along with joy, of learning. As stated in the Swedish Curriculum for the Pre-School, Play is important for the child’s development and learning. Conscious use of play to promote the development and learning of each individual child should be an omnipresent activity in the pre-school.
At Kista International Preschool we speak English and Swedish and support the child’s total development: cognitive, social-emotional, gross and fine motor, speech and language. All of this is done in connection with Lpfö 98, which is the core of our curriculum and the main focus of our staff, children and parents.
