Education is the cornerstone of what we do at BCV. Since 2011, we have placed emphasis on addressing this as a key tool to make a difference in the future of the children we serve. Our goal is to make a difference, one child at a time. We believe by focusing on education we can make a sustainable difference.
Our school is meant to prepare children for primary school. Beginning at 7:30am each day, Monday – Friday, we take time to educate the children on learning fundamentals. Each child is taught the alphabet and each child is taught number counting from 0-100. But that’s only the beginning. We assign notebooks and pencils to our children and each day they are trained on how to write, they are required to follow along with the instructor and duplicate what is being taught on the notebooks. At the end of each day, our teachers grade their daily performance via the notebooks and grades are assigned. We do this so that we can monitor the progress of the children on an individual basis and identify ways to enhance our teaching methods.
Through our curriculum we utilize other forms of education as well such as verbal recitation. We have discovered this helps some children develop and improve on their motor skills. We also have daily coloring exercises where children are given crayons and coloring pads where they can use their imaginations to design works of art. We also allow the children to free-form draw and color as well.
On our staff we have one college degreed and certified instructor who builds the curriculum for the children. We also have five other experienced and certified instructors to assist with the daily classes. We do this so that by the time our children are graduating from our campus they are ready to begin primary school. At the age of 6, children are allowed to enter primary school which is provided for free by the government. We have had very much success with our education methods and members from the local social welfare offices have come to thank us for the difference we are making in the community.
