Nursery School

Considering the importance of ‘first steps’ in the development and progress of every child, our Nursery School constitutes the first step in our determination to offer preschool children with cerebral palsy, who run the risk of never starting out at all, a chance to reach their potential and proceed through life in a meaningful and successful way.

 

Today, preschool children, aged 3-7, are enrolled at the specially designed and equipped nursery school, that operates at the Open Door Centre.

 

The children’s daily programme is supervised, planned and implemented by specialized staff. The highly diversified and comprehensive programme aims to develop the children’s mental, emotional, social and physical abilities and potential, while simultaneously preparing them for the difficult transition to mainstream primary education, by providing them with the necessary self-confidence.

 

Based on the educational curriculum for nursery schools in Greece, the programme is adapted and modified according to the ability and individuality of each child and enriched by physiotherapy, speech therapy, occupational therapy, gymnastics, dance and music.

 

The children’s parents are involved in the educational procedure and a group of highly motivated volunteers support the programme and assist in extra-curricular activities.
