What are International Schools in Poland?
Along with the standard Polish curriculum schools in Poland, there has been an increase in the amount of schools opening that run and fully teach their students on a certain countries standard education curriculum. These schools include, French, German, British, American, Canadian and other countries standard curriculums. This means, for example, students who complete primary or secondary education levels at an International ‘American Education’ Curriculum School in Poland, will be taught based on the same standard curriculum being taught to children attending school In the United States.
What are the Different Types of Pre-Schools?
That is to say, when teaching in Poland, pre-schools follow many different kinds of teaching methods! As a result, this provides many different job opportunities to choose from. Among these methods, there is of course the traditional type which primarily focuses on core knowledge and follows the “classroom lecture” style. Additionally, there are also the more progressive (play) type of pre-schools which include:
– Montessori has a child-centered approach. There are no whole-class lectures, just small group or one-to-one learning! Teachers act as guides for the children, children choose their own tasks and activities.
– Waldorf uses play-based learning as well but focuses more on arts and crafts which enhances creativity.
– Regio Emilia focuses on discover learning and is project based. Teachers work together with children to choose tasks and activities that require critical thinking.
