Our methodology

We accept children of all nationalities between the ages of 1 and 7 years (depending on the centre) in our kindergarten.

Classes in P'titCREF-Moscow are conducted in three languages (Russian, English and French) by experienced native teachers. In Kiev P'titCREF the children learn English and French and can choose either Russian or Ukrainian for the third language. P'titCREF in Marbella offers Russian, English and Spanish.

We combine the children who speak different languages in the same group . Thank to this, they develop in a natural multilingual environment, absorbing knowledge rapidly and easy.

For those children who do not attend our kindergarten, but whose parents want to give them the opportunity to learn foreign languages from childhood, we offer language courses, recently made part of a separate project Languages4Kids, where teachers are also native speakers.

Toddlers Curriculum (2-3 Years)

In the Toddler section, teachers develop their pedagogic activities according to the following educational goals :

  • To discover and develop spoken language by using the first words of communication and the surrounding environment.
  • To discover the world of writing, drawing using various materials.
  • To perceive, feel, imagine and create, while manipulating different tools and materials, as well as developing the sensory activities.
  • To perceive, feel, imagine and create, while manipulating different tools and materials, as well as developing the sensory activities.
  • Personal and social skills development, by learning to be away from the family as well as accepting other adults and schoolmates.
  • To discover the world by observing the surrounding environment, recognising objects and their functions.
  • To discover quantities and numbers, shapes and sizes, finding oneself in both time and space.
  • To act and express oneself through the body, putting it to the test in the daily actions and taking increasingly better assessed risks.

Junior Curriculum OBJECTIVES (3-4 Years)

In the Junior section, teachers develop their pedagogic activities according to the following educational goals :

  • To live together and become autonomous : the child will learn to assume being separated from his family, take his first steps towards social life, learn its rules, learn to dress by himself.
  • To live together and become autonomous : the child will learn to assume being separated from his family, take his first steps towards social life, learn its rules, learn to dress by himself.
  • To discover writing : from his most tender age, the child will be oriented towards the world of written language through books, the use of computers, the learning of the alphabet, reading his own name and will develop the fine tuning of his motor functions through graphic exercises.
  • To act and express oneself with the body (physical development) : developing motor skills in small groups is a very important part of education : learning to run, jump, but also to hold a pen, to cut out, to paint.
  • Mathematics : to discover quantities up to at least 5, learn easy shapes as well as sizes ; become familiar with numbers and their use.
  • To discover the world (science, history, geography) : the observation of the world surrounding us, and trying to understand some of its features (simple notions of time and space).
  • To perceive, feel, imagine and create ( artistic practices and the history of art): the teacher will help the children take up various expression techniques, suitable for their age (modeling & sculpting, drawing, simple collage), in order to try to represent the world.

 

Middle Curriculum(4-5 Years)

In the Middle section, teachers develop their pedagogic activities according to the following educational goals:

  • To live together and become autonomous : The child will learn to assume being separated from his family, and wll take his first steps towards social life, learning its rules, learning to dress by himself.
  • To acquire language and communication skills:at this age the child's lexical repertoire becomes more complex and he distinguishes the three languages.
  • To discover writing : the child is familiar with the alphabet and is able to recognise a series of common words in the global method reading, his graphic repertoire is complete and he learns to write his first letters.
  • To act and express oneself through the body (physical development): by emphasising on personal physical development, the exercises aim to develop the child's physical capabilities, his skills and balance…the child's movements become precise.
  • Mathematics : to know numbers and quantities up to at least 12 and be able to use them.
  • To discover the world through scientific experiments, seizing landmarks in both history and geography. 
  • To perceive, feel, imagine and create by means of various artistic practices, and learn about the history of art as a supporting tool.

 Senior Curriculum (5 - 6 Years)

During the year, the student should learn:

  • To acquire language and communication skills: understand a message and act or answer appropriately, express himself in a clear way, take the initiative to ask questions or say his point of view, expand his vocabulary in the mother tongue as well as the second language.
  • To acquire written language: get into the habit of reading and writing, first by copying and then by writing systematically, by trying to decode multi-syllabic words and developing his repertoire through global method reading.
  • To become a student, by accepting to differentiate between structured and free time, learning to concentrate, understanding the rules of life, working independently.
  • To act and express oneself with the body: adapt his movements to various constraints, cooperate and oppose both individually and collectively.
  • Mathematics: to know numbers and quantities up to 20 and be able to use them, resolve simple problems, develop logic and planning.
  • To discover the world: by understanding and respecting the living world, finding oneself in time and space in a more refined way, exploring matter and objects.
  • To perceive, feel, imagine and create: to develop creative techniques inspired by various works from different eras and regions.

Prep Curriculum (6 - 7 Years)

During the year, the student should learn:

  • To acquire language and communications skills: use a vocabulary that is more and more precise, master the grammatical structures.
  • To acquire the written language: first by decoding words and then by reading simple sentences, refining his handwriting, recognising phonetic combinations.
  • To become a student, by accepting to differentiate between structured and free time, learning to concentrate, working independently.
  • To become a citizen by learning the rules of life.
  • To act and express oneself with the body: become aware of himself, of his physical capacities and his hygiene.
  • To develop the intellectual potential: develop individual and collective strategies in board games as well as physical games, develop logic, assemble and build objects and models.
  • Mathematics: to know numbers and quantities up to 100 and be able to use them, master the principle of addition, resolve simple problems.
  • Discover the world: to acquire basic notions in geography, history and Earth science, develop a sense of curiosity.
  • ICT and technologies: to have as much access to multimedias and technologies as possible, know how to use them.
