Child-centred education through the Step by Step programme
A Step by step (LL) kindergartens and schools are places where children learn naturally, joyfully, through experiences and experiences. Teachers organise learning and classrooms so that children learn the mindsets and skills they need for a happy life in a safe and inspiring environment. Children love going to nursery, school and learning.
What is the aim of the Step by Step programme?
Autonomy, openness, cooperation, critical thinking, creativity and interest in the world are qualities that will help us to face the challenges of the future, both at individual and societal level. We foster these in children in their everyday lives. Children work on projects, so that they can make the subjects real-life by solving a topic or problem. A Step by step groups and classes will start and end the day with a discussion group. Positive reinforcement and encouragement are the driving forces for progress, and teachers place particular emphasis on this. Assessment serves to reinforce individual development; children assess themselves and their peers.
Teachers work in partnership with parents. There are no traditional parent meetings, but there are regular discussions, parent forums and joint activities. Parents are free to visit the school and kindergarten. Parents know what is happening in the school, teachers know what is happening in the family.
There are children who are born in places, for example in slums, where there are no good schools within reach and their families cannot give them the support they need to have a good job as adults and access services that the very poor cannot. A Step by step programme in places where we create opportunities for children from disadvantaged backgrounds to participate in quality education. LL is a way for children from different backgrounds to grow up together, learning from each other, about each other and about the world. The teachers provide the background for this by ensuring that each child is given tasks appropriate to his or her abilities, age and current condition, and receives individual development.
What do we do in our Step by Step programme?
Today they operate in 29 countries in Central and Eastern Europe and Asia Step by step institutions that enable children to become useful and creative members of a democratic society through active learning. The organisations involved in disseminating the programme are International Step by Step Association (International Step by Step Association) brings them together and provides them with the opportunity to innovate, learn from each other and implement joint programmes.
In Hungary, teachers interested in the programme are taught how to put it into practice by trainers who themselves teach using this method. The new method is also introduced step by step. It is important that all teachers go at their own pace, in cooperation with children and parents. The trainers are also there to mentor teachers who want to use the method. In the country, there are schools in Miskolc, Pécs and Kiskőrös that are model institutions. This is where the trainers teach and where the future trainers can come to observe Step by step educators. Methodological centres regularly organise workshops for practising and future LL teachers, where they can learn from each other and share successes and stumbling blocks to change.
