Positive feedback from kindergartens

For 12 months all Kids2Talk project products were piloted and refined in kindergartens and children’s play groups in Austria, Germany, Greece and Romania.  650 children participated in the project. Children Councils in all partner countries were involved in the development, piloting and refinement of all games and toys. Children gave recommendations and directly reported their needs and requirements towards a successful game. Games were refined and underwent a new piloting. Several hundred questionnaires were being analyzed, observatory reports from piloting phases were discussed in order to produce all games in the final phase of the project.

All games come with instructions for teachers and tutors. Instructions are meant to be recommendations since all games and materials are flexible in their use. Many games may be used for alternative plays and joyful events. Many kindergartens are extremely happy with the new games and toys due to their innovative character, multiple use and unique quality.

A „Magic box full of toys“

Like a ship with pirates on the sea children will discover the Kids2Talk trunk box full of games and toys. It is like discovering a real box with most valuable treasures. The box is full of other boxes, bags and wooden parcels. For teachers and trainers a book explains how to use all games and toys. The book also comes with recommendations and information on multilingual methods of early childhood education.

Since all games and toys come in individual packing the box is safe for transportation. The big box may also be used to store cloth, may be a ship or a place to hide in. “Our children really like this big box”, says a teachers. There is so much to explore, so much to discover and to test. Some games do not need any explanation. They simply develop as soon as children start to touch them. Children start a journey discovering something new every time. They start to ask questions, get answers. Some games may also be prepared by trainers or tutors. There is a lot to talk about, to read, to sing, to compare between languages, there are stories to listen to, news to tell others about and of course there are many adventures full of languages in the box. All articles of the box can be replaced in case of something getting lost.
