DAY CENTER FOR CHILDREN IN POTOČARI
With the support of the IN Foundation – Foundation for Social Inclusion of Children and Youth in B&H, in September 2013, a project called the Day Center for Children and Youth in Potočari was launched.
A day care center for children from the local community is a place where they can learn through the game, discover the world and meet new friends. It’s a place where I can eat lunch and drink tea while hanging out with peers and Daycare staff.
Within the Day Center, various activities are implemented that are adapted to the age and interest of children. Some of the activities are: help with homework assignments as daily activities, creative and educational workshops, sports and recreational activities, rhythmic-music workshops, IT workshops and individual work with children. Children can also attend courses in English and German.
The daylight program and agenda also envisages excursions for children. In addition to the above mentioned activities, various cultural and entertainment public events are organized on the occasion of marking important dates. One of the activities is direct work in the local community, where workshops with children of preschool and lower school age are carried out once a week and once a month, workshops for parents are organized.
Direct work activities in the local community are primarily related to work in the rural areas of the municipality of Srebrenica. One of the activities of the Day Center is a professional orientation for pupils of the final grades of the primary school, which is realized in cooperation with the First Elementary School of Srebrenica.
With the help of Day Center staff, the children published all the planned and realized activities in their magazine “The Voice of the Children of Srebrenica” where all their efforts and work were shown. Through a series of structured activities within the Daily Center that are aimed at developing the practical skills needed for everyday life, the development of childhood independence is promoted and the social, cognitive and physical skills are promoted.
The idea of the Day Center project continues to live with a plan for better and more advanced work with children and youth of Srebrenica.
