Children are unique with their own talents, interests and peculiarities.
In order to help the Mirakel’s children to grow and develop further, we offer a number of extra activities:
We give children space in their play to discover their own boundaries, through this children learn to assess risks and develop self-confidence. We therefore believe it is important that children have the opportunity to experience adventurous play in an environment that is safe, yet challenging.
Children of the after school care can have a hot meal at the end of the day. This is useful, for example, if your child starts exercising immediately after the after school care. You can indicate at the location whether you want to order a structural or occasional meal for your child. The child’s preference and any allergies can be taken into account. The meals cost 6 euros each and will be invoiced separately at the end of the month.
Learning through play
Playing is fun and enjoyable and children like nothing better. At the same time, playing is very important for development in almost all areas. At Mirakel, children get all the space they need to play, alone or together with other children. Learning through play does not always come naturally. To turn play into a learning experience, our pedagogical staff enrich play and encourage the child to experiment, explore and discover independently. In this way, the pedagogical staff member ensures that the child can have learning experiences in free play, but also by offering targeted activities.
Our music teacher teaches music to the baby and toddler groups. Every week we make music with the children and sing and dance with them. Even the youngest can join in quickly, for example with the eggs or just enjoy all the songs that are sung. Fun comes first, but it is also good for the language development and the fine and gross motor skills of the children.
For toddlers from 3 years of age there is a weekly gym class given by an experienced gyms teacher. Various types of gymnastic material are used, such as gym benches, balls, hoops, mini trampolines and gym mats. Fun in moving is important to us in these lessons and the children also develop themselves in the field of motor skills.
Toddler plus programme
At Mirakel, we offer activities thematically, for which we use DoenKids and the UK and PUK programme. For children from 3.5 years old, separate activities are offered from these themes, individually or in small groups, mainly aimed at cognitive development. These activities provide an extra challenge during a care day and prepare the children for primary school. Using the theme as a basis, the children play games and practice, for example, independent cutting and recognising shapes and colours.
Throughout the year, our after school cares offer workshops for children in different age groups. The workshops are given by external companies. The offer is a combination of tinkering or being active, for example: reptiles, graffiti or how to become a real Ninja.
