Introduction to Aspect British Kindergarten in St. Petersburg
(Licensed by the St. Petersburg educational committee, number A 250885)
We provide nursery school education for children from 2 – 7 years of age. The Aspect British Nursery School is a private school and the only one of its kind in St. Petersburg working under the British National Standards and according to the Russian governmental programme. ( The British National Standards are used in all educational institutions throughout England. ) The majority of our subjects are taught in English. The only subjects conducted in Russian are Russian grammar, reading, and learning letters.
The main purpose of Aspect British kindergarten is to give all children who live in St. Petersburg a chance to receive a proper Russian education and a British education analogous to the one nursery school children receive in Britain. The British educational system encourages the development of creative abilities and personality traits, and this process of developing a child’s individual characteristics begins at the very earliest stages.
We have assembled an excellent teaching staff, the majority of whom possess higher qualifications. Along with our Russian teachers, many of whom who speak fluent English, we have a team of university-educated native-speaker teachers from Great Britain and the United States.
Our educational plan contains all subjects recommended by the Russian educational system for nursery schools while providing an in-depth English language education in a number of areas such as reading, singing, acting. A great deal of our educational material is from Great Britain.
The educational programme and methods of the Aspect British kindergarten are adapted to the Russian culture, and St. Peterburgers have a unique opportunity, without leaving Russia, to access the advantages of the British system of education and childrearing. With an individual approach to each student and a wide range of experience in the field of childhood education, our lessons are both interesting and productive. All the methods of Aspect British Nursery School have passed the tests of time and given wonderful results.
A high degree of understanding and respect, along with an individual approach to every student provides a creative and friendly atmosphere in the classroom. Our nursery school strives to maintain close and friendly relations with parents, which not only influences the educational process, but a child’s upbringing as a whole. The trust parents place in our school is a huge responsibility, and our entire staff does everything within its power in order to justify their faith. The care and understanding that we put into the educational process is evidenced by the fact that many parents bring a second child to us to educate.
