Preschool Sparrisen, Uppsala

Children have access to more languages than what we call verbal or spoken language. They can convey thoughts and emotions, such as by drawing, painting, singing or creating different types of modelin.

In a calm and relaxed environment, the children can work together in small groups and with a selection of materials. Having our own studio also gives us the opportunity to try many different techniques and materials.

We put great emphasis on stimulating each child’s language development. Every day children are given the opportunity to listen to stories and storytelling, we sing and discuss while playing. We encourage and take advantage of the child’s curiosity and interest in the written language. The meal times are peaceful and give us time to talk about what we have been doing during the day.

We work a lot with singing, dancing and rhythm to develop children’s language, motor skills and creativity in an enjoyable way. Play is important for children to develop and learn. At Sparrisen each child learns how to process feelings and experiences. Through multi-sensory learning the imagination, empathy, speech and ability to interact are stimulated.

Sparrisen is situated in a lovely neighborhood that encourages outdoor activities. Our children spend much time outdoors, for example on Årstafältet or at a local farm open to the public, at playgrounds or in the preschool play area which has playground equipment.

Being outdoors also encourages children to explore, construct and create fantasy worlds and fantasy activities.

Indoors, we have special PE programmes for children and we dance with the entire body to songs specially written for children. We practice balance acts and dance to develop children’s motor skills.Whether we are in the nearby parks or on longer

trips, we learn by doing, which means that children take things in with all their senses and the body. We learn how to keep the outdoor environment clean by picking rubbish and recycling and we learn how wild plants and animals function. Being out and about helps to make children aware of their surroundings as well as learning about The Swedish Right of Public Access.

Oavsett om vi är i närliggande parker eller på längre utflykter utgår vi från upplevelsebaserat lärande, vilket innebär att barnen lär med alla sinnen och hela kroppen. Det man gör med kroppen fastnar i knoppen! Tillsammans gör vi allt från att plocka och sortera skräp till att utforska hur växter och djur i naturen ser ut och fungerar. Pedagogiken bidrar till att göra barnen medvetna om såväl naturen som allemansrätten.
