SOFT School – home away from home

Kids can spend the whole day at SOFT school (from 7.30 am till 9.30 pm) combining the main curriculum with after-school activities. We’ll also leave some free time for rest, home work and supervised playtime outside.

4 classes

The school has 4 primary classes (grades\years): 1 to 4. Each class has up to 16 students.

Safety

Our students will have the opportunity to spend time outside on the closed and guarded inner courtyard of the ‘Sadovye Kvartaly’ residential complex. The school will also have it’s own full-time security guard. There is a CCTV in public areas of the school. 

SCHOOL MENU

The school menu is planned based on the nutritional needs of young children. Meals are prepared daily by our partners, at the ‘My Sadik’ kindergarten in the same  residential complex – ‘Sadovye Kvartaly’. It is also possible to organize an individual menu based on specific dietary restrictions.

FAQ

How many kids are there in each class?

Overall there is 4 classes in the school. Each class will have 12 to 16 students. So every child can count on the maximum attention of the teacher. 

How are the lessons held?

The main lesson format at our school is a learning dialogue. Kids work in groups, so they learn to negotiate, to play different roles and to hold responsibility for a group effort. As a result, they know how to hold a debate, reason with arguments, listen to others and respect other opinions. 

And will there be anything else apart from lessons?

Of course! School fairs, concerts, contests, conferences will all be an integral part of the school’s educational process. 

We think that extra-curricular activities should be a means of self-expression. Kids will be able to choose from music lessons, theatre club, choreography, art, sports. Or try all of them! 

How can parents track their kids’ progress?

We want to work in close cooperation with parents and will be happy to regularly share our feedback on the kids’ progress. Each child will be guided not only by the class teacher, but also by a tutor and a school counselor. If needed we will also engage a defectologist or speech therapist. Together, they will carefully form an individual development map, with the help of which parents can monitor kids’ progress and receive feedback on any possible difficulties.

What about grades or evaluation?

We want to teach kids the art of adequate self-evaluation, not to depend from other people’s opinions and to minimize discomfort from their inevitable mistakes. Therefore, we will use a formative assessment system, which involves self-assessment, mutual assessment, teacher assessment and, most importantly, subsequent corrections or a road-map for further development.

The common Russian five-point grading system will be used as one of the possible for those situations where it will be appropriate and convenient.
