4 year olds
Early childhood education
I'm Minna and I'm the teacher for the Happy Hedgehogs. I'm new to Rauma but I have lots of experience in English early education. I love this work and I especially enjoy seeing the children learn and develop their skills. I want every child in our group to feel safe and happy, seen and heard, every day. Our days will be filled with learning through play, interacting, exploring and fun activities.
In the Happy Hedgehogs group the children learn to be more independent, e,g. getting dressed and undressed by themselves and helping with small tasks in the classroom. They develop self-awareness, self-concept, and are introduced to cultural and language awareness.
They participate in activities that develop team work and social skills, and focus on improving their fine and gross motor skills in preparation for their preschool year.
The English language is taught through songs, daily routines, morning circle, weekly topics, learning stations, gym, art, and music. English is introduced to the children through the use of simple instructions, phrases and vocabulary. This group has personality, is always up for a good challenge, and is, of course, a very happy group!
