Every Friday the Junglemobile takes children to natural or historic sites outside Sofia, where a variety of activities such as horse riding, canoeing, hiking, visiting old monasteries and temples are offered and if it is very hot, the jungle kids have fun by a pool.
At the end of each month (in the jungle), the most prestigious competition takes place. Jungle boys and girls demonstrate capabilities, competing to be crowned Miss and Mister Jungle.
The kids should get familiar with the main Jungle rules
As soon as your kid turns into a jungle child, everyone has to know it is great to know its laws: not to growl loudly; to remember that the jungle is not just for him or her but for you and all of us; not to eat the neighbour’s bananas; to listen to the lions and many other essentials which are a must for the jungle newcomers. Jungle more experienced and older residents clarify with relish the list of rules for the new kids.
But this is not all your children can experience in Oksinia: during spring and winter school holidays kids can enjoy themselves with us having lessons in skiing and falling on the slopes of Vitosha

Center for early development and foreign language learning for very young children
The day care center provides a complete care for your child: you choose when to come and the stay time.
The staff is well trained and Speech therapist and Psychologist are at your disposal.
Freshly prepared warm lunch and afternoon snack, as well as place for afternoon nap are available.
The program is carried out in the morning during the half-day children care with lessons performed under a schedule.
The children can attend the full course of lessons or just specific ones according to their needs and parents’ wishes. The lessons are conducted in a game-like, child-friendly manner, (i. e. learning tasks are called in during a game,) making it possible for children to cope with everything the program offers and to reach the set objectives.
Program for children 1 to 7 years old
On every visit the children will participate in various games intended for development of psychological aspects: attitude, memory, thinking, comprehension, imagination, speech. The children will have practical experience in sensory development, they will develop mathematical abilities as well as performing sets of physical exercises intended for stimulating intellectual development, they will also develop their creativity through painting, crafts, construction games. They will learn to speak properly, think logically, remember, concentrate, count, read, communicate, be independent and know facts about the environment.
Early foreign language learning
This is an essential part of the early development program for children. The children will submerge in a foreign language environment and they will start learning the foreign language like their mother tongue. The program is in a game-like manner resembling children’s every day activities typical of their age and corresponding to their life experience and needs. The children will develop positive attitude towards the language, they will master correct pronunciation, they will adapt to speech and grammatical models in a natural way and consequently they will be prepared for first grade foreign language curriculum (reading and writing ).
If you have observed that your child is not able to pronounce some sounds or cannot pronounce them clearly, don’t panic. Nowadays about 80% of children have some speech disorders. A visit to a speech therapist on time can help you distinguish the problem after a diagnostic test and you can be given advice on further action. An early therapy, when your child is at pre-school age, has the best results. In this way you can avoid further obstacles to first-grade students learning to write. Not dealing with the problem on time can later lead to psychological discomfort.
Deeply involved in our busy and stressful daily life, we don’t often pay attention to our children’s loneliness. Bombarded with huge amount of information, youngsters can’t process, sort and absorb it selectively without help. They feel puzzled and lack of understanding and assistance by their family can provoke serious behavioural and psychological problems, especially in puberty. If you are worried about your child’s isolation, difficulty with socialisation or outbursts of aggressiveness or you can’t find a way to communicate properly with them and discuss their fears and worries, look for professional advice and visit a psychologist.
