The first Schools of Life Seminar was held in Vladicin Han
The goal of the first Schools of Life seminar held in Vladicin Han at the end of August, was to improve teachers knowledge, and help children develop their skills continually from an early childhood.
We take care not only about the preschool infrastructure, which is very important issue for the children in Serbia, but also about their teachers in the project “The Schools of Life”. That’s why we try to help them improve, learn something new, become better in what they do, organizing various seminars and training courses. One of them, called “Start from the beginning – support the early development and learning” was held in Vladicin Han.
One of the goals was to improve teachers knowledge, and help children develop their skills continually from an early childhood. It was also important for the participants to recognize the specific needs concerning education and upbringing that children and families have, and to adjust the programs in preschool institutions.
The method of “Start from the beginning – support the early development and learning” training (approved by The Institute for Improvement of Education and Upbringing, under the catalog number 607) was held from August 29-31, 2014 at the PI “Pcelica”, Vladicin Han. This is the first of three accredited seminars planned for the project “Schools of Life – Together for Childhood”. Twenty-seven participants, twenty-six teachers, a senior associate, and a pedagogical assistant attended the seminar showing they’re open to change and improve.
In the CIP –Center for Interactive pedagogy, which is the implementing partner of this project, the instructors during the seminar were Marina Stanojevic i Danica Sikimic, senior associates at PI “Nasa radost”, Smederevo.
In addition, in Vladicin Han the renovation work on the facility in Lepenica is in progress, and this facility will be used during the project “Schools of Life- Together for Childhood” for the educational programs for children aged 3 – 5,5. The work is mainly infrastructural (plumbing and drainage), the grounds are cleaned, better access points are being built. In addition to renovating and furnishing, the plan is to make the yard as beautiful as ever.
