過日子
Live A Life

就嬰幼兒的發展圖像來說,我會主張零到六歲的學齡前嬰幼兒待在家裡,受母親父親的照養。然而,綜觀當今社會形態,這樣的主張,能夠達到的條件是很低的,雙薪、居家環境、家庭世代與區鄰結構的變遷等因素,現代父母幾乎都需要為自己的子女尋覓幼兒園。

According to the image of the toddler’s development, I propose that children up to six years be looked after by their parents at home. However, this premise is unlikely to be delivered in our modern society for a number of reasons, such as double-income family, the living environment, modern ideology of younger generations, and changes of societal structures…etc. As a result, most parents nowadays need to look for a preschool for their children so they can make sure their children are well taken care of.

1995年,道禾創辦人曾國俊先生,亦是這眾多為子女尋覓幼兒園的父母之一,走訪各大園所,遍尋不著心中理想的桃花源,索性自己創立了「道禾幼兒園」,本著初衷,來道禾上學,我們所建構的圖像為「家學」,像在家過日子一般,老師對待每位孩子視如己出,孩子感受到的不是老師,而是家人,就是「在道禾的母親」。

In 1995, the founder of Daohe school, Kuo-Chun Tseng, was one of those parents looking for an ideal preschool for his own child. After going through so many schools, he still couldn’t find the perfect one. Therefore, he established his own Daohe Preschool. Following his original intention, every child coming to Daohe will have an experience like having a life at home. Our teachers treat every single student like their own child. Their role is the combination of a caretaker, educator, and motherhood.

在這裡,我們好好過日子,老師們帶著孩子在道禾好好吃、好好睡、好好玩,看似簡單的三件事,但簡單的事每天做就不簡單了,我們用心於孩子的「吃、睡、玩」,經二十餘年的耕耘實踐,孩子的午餐,會有道禾農場耕種的蔬食;孩子上手的玩具,是自然、原型、可建構,而遊玩場所更是樹種豐富的生態遊戲場;不需趕進度壓力的道禾,更是讓孩子睡足時間,並將睡眠環境營造出最安適的明暗度、溫濕度。孩子在道禾,認真過日子,好好吃、好好睡、好好玩,吃出對環境的愛,睡出身心靈的平衡,玩出未來世界的大能力。

Here in Daohe, we live a life. Sleeping well, eating properly, and playing merrily seem easy to do but somehow, they are difficult to achieve if you want to do them well on a daily basis. Through our twenty years of hard-work and praxis, we know how to ideally focus on their eating, sleeping and playing. Our children enjoy their lunch made from organic vegetables grown on our own farms. They play with the toys made of natural and original materials which they can reuse and reconstruct their work. The outdoor playground is a rich natural ecosystem for our children to play. At Daohe Preschool, there is no time pressure. Our children sleep in an environment with perfect light and humidity which ensures that the children have a quality sleep. Our children live a simple but quality life here. Eating properly enables our children to sense the love of the environment. Sleeping well enables them to maintain their physical and psychological balance. Playing merrily enables them to develop their future skills and competencies.

在這裡,我們所建構的是富有「家文化」的園所,讓孩子上學像在家一樣感受家常,道禾幼兒園,總是讓孩子,天還沒亮就想去上學,天黑了還不想回家。

Daohe strives to build a school like home for all the children. Studying at Daohe is like living a life at home. The children can’t wait to go to Daohe in the morning and don’t want to go home in the evening.
