Parents and teachers are ‘companions’ in the children’s pre-school and school age journey .

We provide comprehensive pedagogical coverage by welcoming your child as an infant and covering it up to our (Kindergarten-licensed) Kindergarten, so we deliver it, properly prepared, to continue at the Primary School.

We surround the children with a large group of collaborating specialists such as: pediatrician, pediatrician, pediatric dentist, child psychologist, music educator & gymnast.

Also:

  • Kindergarten specialist, speech therapist, physiotherapist & occupational therapist specializing in children.
  • Family counselor
  • Special pedagogues for visual applications, play, etc.
  • We run a “parent school” with regular closed meetings for the group’s parents, as well as open assemblies on issues of common interest.
  • We implement modern, innovative pedagogical programs.

We do not “keep babies” This is done perfectly anyway. The substantial work we do (and that’s why we invest continually – either in continuous training and staff skills development or in facilities, etc.) is to give your child the opportunity to unfold its dynamics, develop a good character, trust in self and its possibilities and to spend creatively his day with music, dance, theater, artistic activities, sports, etc. It is no coincidence that we do not have televisions! We are strengthening our human resources and developing our capabilities.

“oti agapo” has a fairly priced tuition policy with an emphasis on the quality of services and respecting the capabilities of the families who entrust us with their children.We proritize on the  qualitiy (infrastructure, events, personnel and trainings), of our offerings.

We do not stealthily increase our fees by adding “hidden” elements to our cost base (e.g. money for holiday festivities, costume costs, diapers, lunch,  stationery, office supplies and miscellaneous consumables), our charges are low, clear and “all inclusive”. The result of this policy is that “oti agapo” is ultimately cheaper than most “cheap” schools and –also very important- stress free.

Depending on your selection, you can choose one of our school’s flexible payment programs and further reduce the annual cost.

Cooperating with parents

According to our philosophy, parents and educators are fellow travelers during the preschool journey.

Parents are the ones who know their child best and we are called to support the child’s development and experience. Thus, during the introduction and adaptation phase, our school is open to the presence of the parent in order to make the transition to the new context as smooth as needed.

Parents are informed on a daily basis about anything related to the child. We are also constantly updating regarding the diet, school events, etc. They also receive news of special interest about the child, as well as information about all school news, at least once a month. The update is also done by sending e-mails, social media (facebook) etc.

There are also monthly meetings with parents (e.g. the first Wednesday of each month) during which they are informed by the teachers about all the activities carried out, with an emphasis on the presentation of the work done by all the groups. One-on-one meetings can also be scheduled by appointment at any time deemed necessary.

The presence and cooperation of parents is essential and decisive. Without it we cannot be effective in our work.
Parents are for their children the first and almost always the most important persons in bonding relationships.

• We are looking for appropriate ways for cooperation and understanding with parents. Open discussions, based on mutual trust, create the foundation for effective cooperation between parents and “oti agapo” educators.

• Understanding between educators and parents begins before the child even goes to “oti agapo” so that parents can get an understanding of our pedagogical concept. We want them to be able to sit and watch activities, be invited to evening events, etc. In this way the parents of the group can meet and make their first contacts. It is very important that the parents of the children also get social contact with each other and exchange opinions and experiences around their children!

• Parents are especially necessary during the adaptation of the child to our environment.

• Regular discussions between each child’s parents and “oti agapo” educators are held to share information about the child’s developmental level, current interests and planning for any special support that may be needed.

Ισότητα Ευκαιρίων

Το δικαίωμα στη φροντίδα και στην εκπαίδευση είναι αναφαίρετο για κάθε παιδί, συνεπώς το «ό,τι αγαπώ» δέχεται παιδιά ανεξαρτήτως εθνικότητας, θρησκεύματος, σωματικής αναπηρίας ή άλλης ιδιαιτερότητας.

Ο σεβασμός στη διαφορετικότητα αλλά και στη μοναδικότητα του καθενός, είναι προϋπόθεση για αρμονική κοινωνική συνύπαρξη. Εξαίρεση αποτελούν οι περιπτώσεις παιδιών, τα οποία μετά από διάγνωση ειδικού επιστήμονα δεν ενδείκνυται, για δικό τους όφελος, να ενταχθούν σε μία συμβατική Μονάδα Προσχολικής Αγωγής.

Η καλλιέργεια, η αγωγή και η φροντίδα που προσφέρονται στο “ό,τι αγαπώ” συμβάλλουν ώστε να εξασφαλίζονται για κάθε παιδί ίσες ευκαιρίες και να δημιουργείται η προοπτική για την ανάπτυξη μιας θετικής στάσης για τη ζωή μέσα στην κοινωνία. Αυτό ισχύει ανεξάρτητα από το φύλο του παιδιού, την κοινωνική ή οικονομική κατάσταση των γονιών του, την εθνικοπολιτισμική ομάδα στην οποία ανήκει το ίδιο και τα μέλη της οικογένειάς του.

Ανεξάρτητα από την καταγωγή και τις συνθήκες της ζωής του, κάθε παιδί έχει την ευκαιρία να συμβάλει με την ευστροφία, τις ικανότητες και τις ατομικές του δυνατότητες στην ανάπτυξη της κοινότητας και της κοινωνίας. Θεωρούμε πως αυτή η προσέγγιση της έννοιας της καλλιέργειας ανταποκρίνεται στη δημοκρατική οργάνωση της κοινωνίας μας.

Η ευαισθητοποίηση απέναντι στην προστασία του περιβάλλοντος και στη δημιουργία οικολογικής συνείδησης στα παιδιά είναι προτεραιότητά μας.

Σεβασμός για το περιβάλλον

Κατά το χτίσιμο, χρησιμοποιήθηκαν κατά το μέγιστο δυνατόν υλικά φιλικά προς το περιβάλλον.

Το βάψιμο του εσωτερικού χώρου έγινε με 100% οικολογικά χρώματα επώνυμων εταιρειών.

Στους χώρους μας υπάρχει ειδικός κάδος ανακύκλωσης χαρτιού και μπαταριών (σε συνεργασία με εταιρεία ανακύκλωσης).

Η Περιβαλλοντική Αγωγή αποτελεί αναπόσπαστο μέρος του παιδαγωγικού προγράμματος και των εκπαιδευτικών μας επισκέψεων.
