At Santa Bárbara Preschool, every kid feels LOVED, SAFE and SUCCESSFUL
We work by projects as a cross-cutting axis in all development areas, where we promote useful knowledge, fun activities for kids integrated into the curriculum and individual and team learning.
Our methodology seeks internal motivation of kids and we believe it is important for them to satisfy, their basic needs for survival, love, power, freedom and fun in their daily routines. Therefore, it is important for them to have a group of friends, have fun, be acknowledged in the achievement of their goals, feel respected, make small decisions, express themselves freely and learn to solve problems. All of the above results in happier, more responsible and successful kids.
Choice Theory is a modern explanation of how the mind and brain work as a system of internal control of human behavior. Dr. William Glasser developed this theory at the end of the decade of 1970, together with his research team at the William Glasser Institute.
Dr. Glasser studied Chemical Engineering, Psychology, Medicine and Psychiatry, and dedicated his life to analyze the relation between mental health and interpersonal relations, as well as successful school education for all students, lasting love relations, peaceful and successful parenting, and lead management without coercion. The William Glasser Institute has implemented and developed the concepts of Dr. Glasser about Choice Theory, Reality Therapy, Glasser Quality Schools and Lead Management.
The ELEGIR Foundation organizes the Choice Theory certification process and the ways to apply such process on behalf of the William Glasser Institute in Colombia and Latin America. This training promotes the ways to become effective teachers and peaceful parents.
