One of the principles of Kids and Carrots is that the children feel at home and at ease. Because of this, the dynamics within the group are very important. We work with a horizontal group, so the children understand each other better, develop together and because of this their play gets more quality. The presence of familiar peers is therefore very important for the development of personal competences. A pleasant playing climate is created, in which the children can be with each other, but can also discover and play on their own.
The pedagogical staff offer the children various activities that stimulate their imagination and encourage them to play together. During the various lessons taught by professional teachers, different areas of development, including social development, are also stimulated.
We encourage the children to solve conflicts themselves and to experience the consequences of their own behaviour. In this way, children learn to understand themselves and others better. They learn to deal with the boundaries of another, but also to guard their own boundaries. The differences between children are important building blocks in social development. Children develop in and through communication, by exchanging ideas, thoughts and feelings. By creating a safe and familiar environment, children dare to be themselves and develop their social competence.
