Program for two year olds & their mothers
Preparing Two Year Olds for Preschool
Sotron Doi is a 10-week educational module giving mothers and young children a taste of gradinita, so they will be ready and eager for full-time kindergarten the following fall. Șotron Doi addresses children aged two and includes older children who, for various reasons, have not yet been registered in preschool.
This educational module has proven to be very successful in preparing reluctant parents and fearful young children for the structured learning environment of gradinita. It also serves as a relaxed means for parents and teachers to get to know and trust each other.
Sotron Doi begins with a training workshop for teachers who have volunteered to run ten 2-hour sessions (at no additional pay). The participating teachers receive classroom educational kits consisting of age-appropriate books and student school supplies, and money for the daily healthy snack provided for each session.
In 2018, a total of 1000 two and three-year-old children and their mothers attended, for 10 weeks, Hopscotch Two, in 100 rural villages.
