Stemming from their sense of responsibility towards the environment and society, the team of ECP at Bahrain Women Association- for Human Development conducted a training workshop to publicizing and educating teachers on “My Environment” Teacher Edition and its application mechanism on Saturday, 24 March 2012.
“My Environment” is a unique environmental approach initiated by the ECP for kindergarten learning. The approach helps the children learn environmental concepts distinctly and straightforwardly contributing to healthier environmental awareness.
The unit is composed of activities commensurate and in line with the other units applicable at a typical Kindergarten, where linguistic , sport, cognitive, sensory, mobility, artistic and scientific activities are practiced for two consecutive weeks in conformity with Montessori education for the kindergarten age group of 3-5 years.
Applied in many Kindergartens over the past few years, the Teacher Edition had been well received and highly acclaimed by teachers and parents alike, which had prompted environmentally concerned kindergarten to adopt and embrace this unit. By the same token, 18 teachers were trained active kindergartens namely: ‘Sedrat Al Asafeer’, ‘Dunya Al Atfal’, ‘Anwar AlGhadeer’, ‘Al Nahdha’ and ‘Al Najah’.
It should be noted that the application of the unit will be ended on the Earth Day April 22, by having an entertaining environmental event for children by support of the program team.
