CENTER OF EDUCATION AND COUNSELING

Day Center for Children „Nest“

Since November 2009 we have started a project financed by the Dutch foundation „Kinderpostzegels“ – Day Center for Children „Nest“

The Center activities are focused to providing support to children (30-40 children, mainly students of primary school in Slavinovići) in doing homework, adopting positive behavior models, IT literacy, creativity development, and their correct physical development through sport activities.

Children at the Center are removed from the street, and they can spend their free time in a pleasant surroundings. Depending on a season, we organize different activities outside the Center – camping, outdoor activities, picnics, swimming at the Panonica lake, ice-skating, sledging. Besides, we organize visits to theater, exhibitions and other cultural manifestations.

Taking all the above mentioned into consideration, we significantly contribute to reduction of juvenile delinquency and peer violence too.

Our team consists of special pedagogue, social worker, 6 volunteers – young, unemployed professionals, educators, social pedagogues and pedagogues/psychologists.
