Educational Project Planeta Explorers
Introduction to the Educational Program: Los Camaleones
The Los Camaleones educational project of Planeta Explorers is a bilingual project (English and Spanish) and is designed for children from 3 to 7 years old. We offer children significant experiences and encounters that support them in their full development. We focus on the global development of the children: creative, cognitive, social and behavioral aspects. After all, it is an important phase of life that will be a reference for your future steps.
LEARN WHILE PLAYING
PHYSICAL, EMOTIONAL AND COGNITIVE DEVELOPMENT
DIVERSITY OF THE WORLD
Our goal is to offer support, materials, activities and experiences that support their healthy development and growth, knowledge of themselves and the world that creates them. The natural environment is our great inspiration, through observing the environment (flora, fauna and climate), using natural, recycled and sustainable materials, children are invited to create, take initiatives, experience challenges and seek solutions to any problems . All areas of knowledge are involved in our actions and experiences: mathematics, language, biology, physics, chemistry, geometry, art, theater, music, cooking etc.
The routine combines actions related to the body, mind, conscience, empathy, compassion, respect, nature, creativity and emotions. Some of our inspirations are the Harvard approach – Institute of multiple intelligences (http://www.pz.harvard.edu/), the approach of Reggio Emilia (https://www.reggiochildren.it/en/reggio-emilia-approach/) from Italy, and recent research on creativity, art and emotions, and the importance of playing in nature.
We understand that each child is unique, and that all children are given full rights from the moment they are born. In order for them to develop their powers and abilities, both cognitive, motor and emotional, they need facilitators who offer true listening, security, trust, respect and who are good conflict mediators. The facilitators understand that children are capable of infinite actions and learnings, which can be protagonists of their learnings, authors of their own history and path. In this way, while they learn to trust the people around them, they learn to trust themselves and build a positive image of themselves.
