At the present time there are approximately 14 children attending day school, their ages ranging from 5-13years. Maxim has 2 teachers and one social worker, plus one volunteer helping in the teaching program. The main teaching is reading, writing and arithmetic. The children are given a midday dinner and supplied with clothing when needed . Parent meetings are held which is a good step in educating the parents with the needs of their children.
As well as giving the children regular lessons, they are taken away on summer camps. The children really enjoy the camps, it allows them to learn much needed social skills, as well as having lots of fun. The educators are not able to run daily classes yet, but are working towards this. The number of students vary according to the families situation.
As soon as the students reach a level of education and can communicate in Ukrainian, they will go to the state school, which is their right, but until this level is reached it is impossible for them to be there. It would mean ridicule by the other students if their level of language was poor.
