The GlobeAsking questions and limit bounderies
Children at De Globe have fled from their own environment and have few solid leads. Everything is new and basically it feels deeply unsafe. It is our job to create a safe environment. The safe environment is created when there is a clear structure and an atmosphere of positivity. Once the children understand the structure and experience the atmosphere they can focus on learning.
Learning happens by recognizing the structure and responding to it. In addition, the emphasis is on learning Dutch: speaking, reading and writing and also on arithmetic. As soon as the children reach a higher reading level, reading comprehension will also be addressed. Creative subjects such as music, drama, drawing and painting are also part of the curriculum.
We also want to create opportunities for the children to maintain their native language. We are still looking for teachers who can support us with this.
When children attend De Globe, we start with an intake interview to see which starting point the child has. Young children learn the daily routine, school routines and conditional activities associated with reading and math. Children aged 6 years and older are screened for letter knowledge and whether they can already read and write in the Latin script.
After the intake, a plan with goals is drawn up for the child. Every 10 weeks we check whether personal goals are being achieved. The evaluation is discussed with the parents and it is checked whether there are special matters and whether outside help should be sought. In this way we guide the children in their development.
