History

 

“WHAT IS NEW DOESN’T HAVE A HISTORY”…..but we say that we have our history.

From the ashes of KINDERGARTEN NO.17we revive like the Phoenix bird taking the living flame of German Language further over the years in this city.
And not only this …..the minorities that live in this city will learn German language forever in our Kindergarten,and they will also learn English language that is so useful to enter the Civilized World of Computer and Internet- the World of the Future.
The History of KINDERLAND will be written by US-the teachers-and by the children who are attending the classes here at KINDERLAND now-and by the children that will come to study in our kindergarten beside their parents and grandparents who will revive their childhood only listening to the happy voices and the laughter of their children from this “ Oasis of Happiness.”
In the name of the children that are studying at the Kindergarten and also in the name of the children that will come to study here we are opening the competition for: THE MOST GIFTED CHILD.
KINDERLAND was opened on 16th of September 2002.The building was bought on 12th July 2003 using a Short-term Bank Credit from Transilvania Bank.The building is new and ready to function .
It has seven group-rooms, a kitchen, four bathrooms, a dining-room, a cellar, a
pantry ,a methodic-room, a Gym-class, chess, music lessons, shows, a front-yard, a back-yard, a park.
Presentation
THE KINDERGARTEN KINDERLAND is a German kindergarten,that means,teaching the entire programme in German language at the German section. Learning this language is the main purpose of our kindergarten,that has worked for seven years in our national educational system being authorized by I.S.J.CLUJ,the Educational Ministry,following the national curriculum and the one edited by the Pedagogical College in Sibiu for German language.We also have our own curriculum,where we have added everything we found best in the German,Swiss,Austrian,Hungarian and English educational systems.

Our curriculum respects the reglamantations of the Ministry of Education,the didactic contents following the educational concept “Pyrmide” of the German CITO Pedagogical Institute,and the one of the University in Berlin,who are our permanent exchange partners.

The team Kinderland has acquired experience during over 9 years of activity,we are a team of professionals that guarantee the quality of education.

Our educators/teachers speak German as a mother language,they are qualified educators-teachers, teaching the entire programme in German language at the German section.We aren’t interested in quantity,but in teaching differencially,individually. Our groups are small(10-12 children),this allows us to look after each child,to follow his evolution and to communicate it to his parents on regular basis.We wish to discover and to develop those abilities and skills of each child that makes him a UNIQUE MANCUB.Our children’s parents benefit of a special evaluation system daily and periodically,their children being monitorized and observed.

We started discovering the German language through game,at the State Kindergarten No.17 over 20 years ago.Over the years this has proved to have been the best investment made by our parents.German is a difficult,though beautiful language,knowing it trains the mind,forms the character and offers one a profession.Our children will learn it here,at Kinderland,where we would like to have you as our collegues…Our creed is that each child comes gifted with a special talent,the purpose of his life being to discover and fulfil it.Thus we promote in our kindergarten gifted education-a unique educational system,individualized for each child.

We work in an interior space of 500 qm,we have a yard of another 500 qm,with lawn,trees,inflatable pools for the summer and many accessories for playing,especially in our playground,our park offered to us by the Local Council and the Mayor’s Office.

Besides our educational programmes our children benefit of many extracurricular activities meant to develop their creativity,their talents and personality,such as:lessons of chess,modern dances,arts(these 3 optionals have brought us special results,awards in town and Transylvania,or aboard),piano,visits to the Botanical Garden,shows with magicians,puppet theatre,games in our yard or in the park next to the Mushroom.etc.

At our kindergarten we have a team of pediatricians that come and see the children periodically,thet offer home calls,we also have a dentist and a logopede teacher twice a week.

Between June 15th and August 31st we offer an attractive holiday programme.Our kindergarten is open during the summer.

We offer the possibility of a summer camp under the Transfagarasan,but also language-learning:short,prolongued and long programme,that includes swimming courses with an authorized  swimming trainer,creation workshops,puppet theatre,drawing and painting lessons,trips and visits,and so on.

You’ll find us in the Gheorgheni neighbourhood near the Mushroom!You can take the bus 32 or 32B.
