Huana Pilot starts with 6 month old babies and continues until the age of 15, at which point every child should have grown to become a HERO (H=Healthy, E=Experienced, R=Responsible and O=Open-minded. Every kid will go through our Active Learning Program, which we above discribe as a Train.
Baby and Parent Club (0 to 2 years)
Baby and Parent Club is meant for babies from 6 month to 2 years. Parents, or mainly grand parents, bring the kids twice a week to our Hero Center, where we develop babies with the critical skills (Physical Skills, Social Skills, Emotional Skills, Communication Skills and Cognitive (Brain) Skills). At the same time we teach the grand parents to do the same developing activities at home between the Club meetings.
HighScope Kindergarten (2 to 4 years)
The normal way in Thai Kindergartens is to look after children, not to ambitiously develop them. Our new HighScope concept makes us a model for all over 400 kindergartens in Phetchabun Province. Children learn to Think, Plan, Do and Review.
Huana Preschool (4 to 6 years)
We have implemented the excellent Finnish Moomin English Program for all our Preschool students. The learning happens in daily 15 minute sessions using tablets. The Program is designed by leading Finnish educators developing also the thinking skills besides the language. From November 2019 we have started to implement the HighScope learning method also in Preschool. Again, with amazing results in just few a short time.
Huana School (6 to 12 years)
In 2020 we started to find a way how to implement Active Learning also to the Huana Primary School. The challenge is how to change attitudes of teachers. As our first Baby Club participants are approaching the first class at School (P1), we started by implementing an Active Learning concept there. From May 2021 P2 will join P1 in becoming an Active Learning class. By the end of 2023 the whole School should be a showcase, how to move from Passive- to Active Learning classroom.
Obodjo School (12 to 18)
Obodjo School is a surprisingly developed School in Phetchabun with around 800 students. It is a natural part of our Zero-to-Hero Program, as most of Huana School students continue their studies there from §1 to the age of 18. In February 2020 we organized a 2-day workshop for over 60 Obodjo teachers in order to define a Target Statement for the School as a base for a development program.
