Kindergarten of Avlonari is a public school, in the primary level of Greek Education system. Primary education is divided into kindergarten, lasting one or two years and primary schools lasting six years. All levels of education in Greece are overseen by the Ministry of Education, which exercises centralized control over the state schools by prescribing the curriculum, appointing staff and controlling funding. As a result, we have 2 guidance specialists, the pedagogical advisor of preschool education in Evia and the advisor of school programs, who evaluate our programs.
Our kindergarten is located in a small village named Avlonari and founded in 1966. The teaching staff consists of 3 nursery school teachers and 47 students with age range 4-6 years old.
Our organization follows the Greek Pre-school Curriculum and tries every year to participate in innovative and creative programs, which are improving learning and socializing our students. Through these programs, we try to promote their development emotionally, socially, physically and academically, while supporting their differences and particularities. Our team believes that global education can greatly enhance learning within the classroom. Through this multicultural exchange of experiences and knowledge, our students become more active and embrace cultural diversity. As a result, our kindergarten has developed a strong collaboration with the local authorities and the local community. Our principal aim is inspire our students through innovative and playful activities, to respect their environment and become responsible and active citizens.

Every year, together with the parents in organize "The Optimistic Family Sports Olympiad", when the Local Authorities, parents, relatives and other local community members are welcomed. We try to educate our children in an interesting way. We take part in different events, contests, performances and projects organized in our district and in the city of Warsaw. In the kindergarten children can develop Their hobbies attending to different classes like music, drama, educational activities in a library, nature classes, Angielski, gymnastic or even Zumba for kids. One of the weakest point of our institution is its playground. It is poorly equiped, with only a few devices for children.
We took part in different projects connected with the children's health. Here are some of them:
1. "Naughty bears, that is the way to overcome boredom"- project within "Warsaw Educational Initiative" which main goal was to overcome the aggressive behaviours with preschoolers. This is the project written by on of our teachers.
2."We eat healthy and grow healthy" - project organised by Foundation of Children Development named after J.A. Komeński. The project was intended especially for the kindergartnen's workers. Thanks to this project, the staff learnt about healthy nutrition in the kindergartens.
3."Establishing the cultivation in the greenhouse" - our own project, which helped our children to be close to nature .
Capaci is today a multicultural small town where people coming from different countries of the world live and work. Our institution tries to respond to some of the family and society needs, in a European perspective and aims at giving the highest levels of education and instruction to all citizens. All of this is done by keeping in mind and respecting the personal qualities of the students which the institution welcomes, even through individual learning, promoting their development and having as a basic aim the acquisition of common objectives.
Our purpose is to put our institution in a modern perspective of exchange in an international level by means of a multilateral partnership that will be realized as a curricular and lab activity. Our intent is to propose a European model in order to discover similarities, analogies and differences among countries without disregarding the peculiarities of the local school and to build, reinforce and improve progress and development. We believe that this project is a good occasion for a remarkable cultural growth for all. By rediscovering the similarities and the differences of one’s past we believe we could create a cultural bridge among the various countries.My school has orchestra and is equipped with regard to new technologies
