We presented our programme “Through Play to School” in Velika Gorica and together with our partners, associates and beneficiaries celebrated the International Family Day!
After the greeting speech and the beautiful words of Arijana Mataga Tintor, Advisor in the City of Velika Gorica (City Office for Preschool Education, Education and Sports) and Sanda Puljiz Vidović, Director of the Center for Children, Youth and Family Velika Gorica, representatives of the Association “Children First”, Vladica Šafranko and Nikolina Dubravac presented our programme.
In addition to the presentation of goals, activities and outcomes of the programme, we had the opportunity to hear a review from the “beneficiary perspective”. The mothers from our playgroups and children – members of the Velika Gorica Children’s Council shared with us their experience of participating in the programme activities. Participants were able to see the posters made by our beneficiaries and group leaders and the photos taken during the implementation of the programme. The programme “Through Play to School” was verified as a shorter pre-school programme, by the Ministry of Science, Education and Sports and the State Agency for Education, so it is integrated into state curricula of pre-school education.
In Velika Gorica we run the programme in partnership with the Kindergartens “Velika Gorica” and “Lojtrica”, the Center for Children, Youth and Family Velika Gorica and the Center for Social Welfare Velika Gorica. The implementation is co-financed by the City of Velika Gorica and the Ministry of Science, Education and Sports.
