Akkerdoppies wants to reach out to at least 30 early childhood development centers and help the children to be ready for school, by means of training and empowering the teachers and parents of such children. We follow a holistic approach and ensure that the children receive high quality education and stimulation in the following areas: Gross motor-, fine motor-, perceptual-, life skills and language development.
We reach out to children who need it the most, so that they can reach their full potential.
To give every child a fair chance to develop their full potential and be ready for school.
To empower teaching staff and parents by means of early childhood development programs and resources, so that the children will be ready for school and complete their school career with success.
HOW WE DO IT:
We do a need analysis at each school to determine which building blocks of development are at risk with both children and teachers. These shortfalls are then addressed by means of training, mentoring, workshops and ensuring access to resources and educational materials.
Both children and teachers’ progress are monitored and evaluated on a regular basis.
“Our staff are more confident, structured and they know exactly how to stimulate the children. They also know how to stimulate all areas of development in order for the children to have improved independence and discipline.”
“I’ve learnt how to identify delays and what to do about it. I know what to do with the children every week and their participation has improved so much.”
This process takes 3 to 5 years per school:
Training of general childhood development
Optimal structuring and organizing of learning environment
Making educational materials out of recycled materials
Purchasing of educational resources
Ongoing mentorship and training
Implementing all aspects of training and educational program
Evaluating and decreasing of mentorship
Final evaluation and monitoring in terms of sustainability
