my name is Adi. I was one of the lecturers at one of the colleges in the town of balikpapan.
my friend and I are creating a project that focuses on early childhood education. The name of our team is Sawah Padi (Rice Paddy).The location of our project in the area Simpang Pasir, Mangkujenang, Palaran Samarinda. Samarinda is the capital region of east borneo Indonesia.
We concern about educational, spesially for how to created our chlidren to love their country Indonesia (Wawasan Kebangsaan), softskill, of course learned foreign language. Mangkujenang is a village around samarinda city. Especially the area that is right at the exit toll behind samarinda which is currently under construction. The majority of the people are farmers. Formerly this area is a region dominated by rice fields, but since the construction of toll roads, the size of rice fields of citizens is reduced, even tends to damage the surrounding environment. In addition to rice fields, other dominating plants are vegetables. Because most of its citizens farm, so many of the parents are less attention to the development of their children's education.
After school, the children's activities are almost all time spent playing. therefore, we intend to create activities with the aim of giving them the opportunity to make the most of their time to learn and gain insight.
Our teaching system focuses on good manners, attitudes and behavior. That we do, because at this time, the lessons of character, attitude and behavior of children have not been emphasized more in their lessons in formal education. We focus on educating children to love reading, learning by not leaving the characteristic behavior of Indonesian children. We also teach them English, teaching them to play music and sports.
