Uk & Puk education programme
Learning by playing
Children discover the world by playing. Childcare organisation Het Steigertje therefore focuses on learning by playing. For this purpose, we work with the preschool education programme Uk & Puk. The recognized early-school education programme has the starting point of ‘playing is discovering and playing is growing’. Children learn new skills by being active and by playing.
Uk & Puk consists of ten themes with varying activities. The activities focus on speech and language, social-emotional development, motor and sensory development and initial arithmetic development. Talking together, being read aloud to, helping other children, doing crafts, dancing and counting objects… these are just a few examples of the activities that we do every day with the children.
