HOW DO WE TEACH CHILDREN?

5 distinctive features!
1
A toddler studies separately from his parents starting from the age of 1
2
A child gets practical knowledge through different tests, games, experiments
3
A young leaner develops high learning motivation taking part in different kind of competitions, educational contests, Olympiads, performances
4
A graduate creates portfolio for his future school and gets “Az-bu-ka” Certificate of completion
5
There is also Teacher’s Training Center established for our tutors’ continuing professional development (CPD)
A child plays, does tasks and exercises on his own. While he is engaged with the teacher, mom can have a rest or do her own things.
Without mom
With great interest
Getting ready for school
He learns new information very easily as it is based on his practical experience, and by the age of 7 level of his knowledge will exceed the accepted norm. As a result, parents of our graduates choose high-score schools where their children demonstrate deep knowledge and pass entry exams successfully.
Geography
Chemistry
Physics
A child is happy getting certificates, medals and cups, he is glad when his parents are proud of his achievements. Such moments motivate him to learn more and more.
Competitions
Performance
Maths Olympiad
Portfolio is a book of child’s achievements for his first 7 years based on his experience and presented by photos and rewards. Portfolio helps to introduce a future first-grader to his school director more vividly. Our graduate gets “Az-bu-ka” Certificate of completion at Graduation Ceremony Party.
Training Center ”Teacher’s Az-bu-ka” was founded in 2001. All our teachers upgrade their skills here each month. All our classes are equipped with observation system that allows parents to stay informed about lessons, teaching methods and be aware of every achievement of their children via monitors.
One is teaching children should learn himself!
Upgrading teaching skills
Finding new methods of teaching

We use different methods of teaching when preparing scenarios of lessons for our learners (see below), and we do not stick only to the one method. Our choice of this or that method is based on certain characteristics of the particular group or individual depending on the level of their knowledge and skills. We believe that using only one method of teaching, for example, methods of Maria Montessori or Nikolai Zaitsev is not effective as it is narrows the program. Of course, we use famous method of Maria Montessori, but only the most effective exercises that are actual today and suitable for development of the modern child. Generally, our learners are mentally and physically healthy, they do not need Montessori method in full as it was initially created for the mentally deprived children. Use of one method is the same as eat only apples. Apples are healthy food but we see no reason to limit ourselves jus to apples. Human nutrition as well as development of the child should be balanced!

Our educational program is updated every year, we add new methods of teaching and refuse from the outdated and irrelevant ones. Regular participation in educational conferences, forums, seminars and master classes both in Russia and in other foreign countries (France, USA, UAE, Germany, etc.) helps us to update the program on a regular basis. We adapt gathered information to our work with children aged 1+ in Russia and share our knowledge with our teachers.

Our Pedagogical Training Center “ Teacher’s Az-bu-ka” was established in 2001. This is a place where our teachers improve and upgrade their skills. Here we explain them new methods of teaching and other up-to-date techniques that are used for work with children of preschool age. The training seminars and workshops take place here each month, all our teachers attend them on a regular basis during the whole period of their employment. All seminars are held in an interactive form with suits and props. A teacher becomes a child for a while, he plays, hops, crawls, barks like a doggy, makes and draws – does all that he usually has to explain to a child at “Az-bu-ka” classes. The teacher should get his personal experience as if he were a child, go through the same emotions and feelings in order to choose the proper words when explaining the material to a child.

The opportunity of personal growth and continuing professional development is one of the reasons why teachers choose “Az-bu-ka” center as a place of work.

BELOW IS THE LIST (NOT FULL) OF AUTHORS AND METHODS WE KNOW AND USE IN OUR WORK

Kumon

The Kumon Method was developed by Japanese educators 50 years ago and was created to help children aged 2+ to count and develop handwriting skills. Kumon centers are opened in 47 countries however there is no Russia on the list. In 2014 Kumon’s notebooks appeared on the Russian market. The program is focused on independent skills’ development. Thanks to The Kumon Method children feel they can achieve much by themselves.

JAPANESE METHOD OF EARLY LEARNING AND DEVELOPMENT BY MAKOTO SHICHIDA KNOWN AS THE SHICHIDA METHOD

Professor Makoto Shichida has founded 400 specialized centers of early learning and written more than 100 books. The Shichida method is used in different countries such as Japan, Canada, China and others. Teachers develop physical, intellectual and aesthetic skills of the children with the help of special trainings.

MARIA MONTESSORI METHOD

This method is the most popular one. It involves three parts: Child, Environment, Teacher. The child is in the center of the system. A special environment is being created around him where he lives and learns independently. The Montessori Method is characterized by an emphasis on self-directed activity on the part of the child and observation on the part of the teacher. Method can be used for rehabilitative classes.

DENESH METHOD

This method is based on development of logical thinking. Special games help to develop logical thinking, combinatorics, analytical abilities, create skills required for logical problem solving.

GLENN DOMAN METHOD

This is one of the most disputable methods where cards of a certain size are shown to a child enabling him to read the whole words instead of reading letters or syllables.

CECILE B. LOUPAN METHOD

Her method was born out of multiple attempts to learn her daughters using Doman cards. She believes that learning should be more delicate and individual, the most important thing is the child’s own interest. “Believe in your child” is one of her most famous books.

G.S. ALTSHULLER TRIZ METHOD

Genrikh Saulovich Altshuller is the author of TRIZ – TRTS (the Theory of Inventive Problem Solving - the Theory of Technical Systems Development), the author of TRTL (the Theory of Creative Individual Development), inventor, writer.

With children of preschool age we use the textbook of S.I. Gin “TRIZ learning at the kindergarten: textbook for teachers at preschool classes” 2007

Our graduates pass exams and enter the best schools in our country, they successfully apply the acquired knowledge and skills in their life!

WHAT WILL HAPPEN TO YOUR CHILD?

1
In the beginning of the learning course
From the very beginning a teacher communicates with a child switching his attention from his parents to himself so that a child could act independently, without help of the mom. Based on the results of the first two lessons, we create individual plan for child development taking into consideration his current knowledge, skills and how quickly he learns new information. After each lesson a teacher gives feedback to parents and tells about new skills their child acquired.
2
In the mid of the learning course
A teacher creates the scenario of each lesson where a child practices a lot, plays and makes experiments together with a teacher. We give some level of freedom to a child so that he could get his personal experience and make his own conclusions. Children develop speech, fine motor skills, memory, they become more attentive, they learn how to express their thoughts, how to argue, how to defend their point of view, how to admit their mistakes and correct them. Our kids at the age of 2 take part in contests of public speaking, play in children’s performances getting their first certificates and medals. From the age of 3 our children start learning how to read, write and count, they study such subjects as Environment, Literature and TRIZ (the Theory of Inventive Problem Solving).
3
At the end of the learning course
The child is ready for school. The level of knowledge of our graduates is above the generally accepted norm, that’s why their parents choose high-score schools for further education of their children. Our graduates are independent, self-motivated, with systemic thinking and leadership skills, artistic and sociable. They successfully pass exams and enter the best schools with competition of 20 applicants per seat.

My son attends “Az-bu-ka” classes from the age of 2 (Studencheskaya branch). His teacher Ms. Natalia is a real professional, very sensitive to discipline. Mr. Alexey, a fitness trainer, is the best one I ever met! I was also very surprised by the domestic atmosphere created at the center by Ms. Alia, the administrator. Usually I visit your club with two children, one of which is only 10 months. Ms. Alia is always ready to help, I even can leave my 10-months baby with her while I am busy with the senior one. I would like to say Thank you to you and all your staff!
Tatiana: Thank you! We will try our best to keep the same standards and even better!
Ksenia, 02/15/2017
Our friends strongly recommended us speech therapist Ms. Larisa Mikhailovna (“Az-Bu-ka” center, Park Podedy branch) and we decided to address to her as we were really surprised by the progress of our friend’s child. In several months about 90percent of complicated speech defects were overcome! Before this during one year we tried to achieve at least some result with other therapists but with no success. Ms. Larisa Mikhailovna easily carried away my child into game, she taught him to understand himself and to pronounce sounds correctly! Without difficult tasks and massage usually so disliked by the children! Our family is very grateful to you and your professionals! We continue visiting some other “Az-bu-ka” classes and soon our younger son will go to your club too. Thank you once again!
Tatiana: Thank you very much for your feedback! We are also proud of your son’s achievements made with the help of our professionals and be glad to see your younger child at our club.
