Learning through playing

Since the beginning we have been convinced that the best way to learn is through playing games. In the special “games room” educators and volunteers plan and implement different activities for the students. After the children finish their homework, they can join in the games. 

Every day at 4 pm the students play different games in groups, guided by an educator/ volunteer. They learn how to win, to follow rules and how to deal with their feelings when losing a game. In short, they learn lots of important lessons for their everyday lives.

Through clear rules and classroom management it is possible to maintain a good learning atmosphere and the students are able to practise their social skills. 

At the end of the lesson everything is cleaned up so the next group may start. The girls and boys have so much fun playing and learning through games, that they hurry up with their homework, so they can join in the fun!
