“Knic is a municipality with many children and we are very happy to be on schedule, opening the School of Life at the end of this year. I would like to thank the representatives of the local authorities who showed interest in the project and collaborated with us all the time. The experience with the Schools of Life we’ve opened so far is phenomenal, children spend quality time, learn modern education programs, and parents are constantly involved, which was our goal. I am positive that the Schools of Life in Knic will also become a place for socializing and learning, for love and remembrance”
said Jelena Ristic, the Novak Djokovic Foundation director.
One teacher will work with children daily, and the parents of preschoolers will have the opportunity to participate in specially designed programs.
The project implementation began in July, and along with the adaptation of rooms for the School of Life, it included seminars for the local government representatives on the importance of investing in preschool education, and three professional seminars for all teachers working in Knic municipality.
The “Schools of Life“ project is being implemented with professional support from the Centre for Interactive Pedagogy from Belgrade, aimed at creating better conditions for the education of children in Serbia. The project is designed for children from rural areas, who had no opportunity to go to kindergartens and preschool institutions. The Schools will primarily be places for children aged 3-6 years to play and learn. The program is also designed for children from vulnerable groups and children with disabilities to have access to preschool education.
