    Gifted Education Kindergarten
  • THE IDEA
  • The first Ever
    • Center of gifted education to promote an alternative of early quality childhood education
    • Mission Statement
    • The first kindergarten:
      • To offer exceptional quality of education
      • To offer top-talent personnel in a top quality educational environment and a high quality relationship with parents (parenting, consulting)
      • To discover, to promote and to develop the natural abilities and potential of children through gifted education methodologies
      • To support children to be authentically happy
      • To support parents to live as fulfilled balanced human beings
    Gifted Education Kindergarten
  • An exceptional project
    • A unique project to answer a high social demand for an early childhood education of excellence
    • Gifted Education is proved to have high results with all categories of children
    • Gifted Education is Early Quality Childhood Education. Research proves that every child at 3 years old is gifted: with high abilities of attention, concentration, creativity, intelligence, motivation, capacity to learn, humor and sense of right
    • Furthermore, research shows that intelligence and creativity forms 95-98% at early ages (10 to 12 years old)
    • Quality Day Care, Early, Is Tied to Achievements as an Adult
    • Early quality education can develop the intelligence and creativity of children : The Abecedarian project in the US proves this result (1999). More evidence: Jeff Bezos – A mazon , Larry Page – G oogle , Sergey Brin – G oogle credit Montessori education for their succes ( G oing to a Montessori school is where they learned to be self-directed and self-starters. They said that Montessori education allowed them to learn to think for themselves and gave them freedom to pursue their own interests )
    Gifted Education Kindergarten
  • Invest in gifted children, invest in the values of society, invest in our national future!
    • “ No nation, no society can allow herslef to neglect gifted
    • children and youth with highest potential of her people.
    • The most talented are the nation’s wealth.”
    • Klaus Urban Prof. Dr., ex president of World Council for Gifted and Talented Children
    • "Gifted education respects and promotes the divine nature of the
    • human being and not a merchandised human being, the human
    • being for consumption. We promote the human being who is a
    • creator, the human being capable to develop her potentials . "
    • - Florian Colceag, president, IRSCA Gifted Education .
    Gifted Education Kindergarten
  • Gifted Children:
    • Have special needs
    • They waste
    • Most of the them are underachivers (50% according to research)
    • Get cornered in the society
    • They risk alienation and grow to become antisocial
    • And they are a Nation’s WEALTH!!!!!!!!!!?
    Gifted Education Kindergarten
  • International Recommendations
    • “ I heard about plans to establish a kindergarten
    • for gifted children and take this opportunity to
    • strongly support this promising endeavour, which
    • not only gives necessary developmental input to
    • the individual children, but is a big step forward to
    • a gifted education, dealing with differentiation in
    • heterogeneity, from which finally all children and
    • lastly the society will get profit….
    • Dr Klaus Urban, Leibniz Universität Hannover, Institut für Sonderpädagogik, past president, World Council for Gifted and Talented – most important gifted education international organization
    Gifted Education Kindergarten
  • International Laws Supporting the education of gifted children
    • RECOMMENDATION 1248 (1994) of the
    • Council of Europe, Parliamentary Assembly states:
    • “ Gifted children should be able to benefit from appropriate educational conditions that would allow them to develop fully their abilities, for their own benefit and for the benefit of society as a whole. No country can indeed afford to waste talents and it would be a waste of human resources not to identify in good time any intellectual or other potentialities. Adequate tools are needed for this purpose”
    • ” The ordinary school system should be made flexible enough to enable the needs of high performers or talented students to be met”
    Gifted Education Kindergarten Council of Europe , Reply from the Committee of Ministers In 2003, the Committee of Ministers stated in two official replies (September and December) that: Gifted children form a category of persons with special needs; they face “certain specific problems in the regular education system for ordinary children” [1] and because of that, they require proper provision within a different education system. If proper care is not taken, on one hand, “the high potential of these children for creativity is lost, and on the other hand, there is the risk of alienation, drop-out and antisocial behaviour” [2] .
  • World Conferences on Inclusive Education
    • Salamanca World Conference on Special Needs Education, 1994:
    • “… Schools should accommodate all children regardless of their physical, intellectual, social, emotional, linguistic or other conditions. This should include disabled and gifted children, street and working children, children from remote or nomadic populations, children from linguistic, ethnic or cultural minorities and children from other disadvantaged or marginalised areas or groups.”
    • Dakar World Education Forum, 2000:
    • “ ... Education systems must be inclusive, actively seeking out children who are not enrolled, and responding flexibly to the circumstances and needs of all learners...”
    Gifted Education Kindergarten
  • Romanian Law 17/2007 on the education of gifted and talented
    • Art.3 - According to the Human Rights Charter, Lisbon case, the Universal Declaration of the Rights of the Child, Recommendation 1248/1994 of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe, students with special needs, among whom gifted students can be mentioned, shall be provided with an adequate educational environment which allows them to fully exploit their potential for their own, as well as for the society’s benefit.
    • Art.4 - In accordance with the regulations of Law of Education no.84/1995 and Government Emergency Ordinance no. 36/1997, this law is intended to promote and guarantee the right to differentiated education , setting a legal and technical-logistic framework for professional elites in all fields, through:

    • b)   Education of gifted and talented students in public or private specialized centers through specialized classes, week-end schools, training camps, summers schools, distance education programs, and other methods ;
