Basic meaning

The Czech Association of Instructors dealing with the psychomotoric activities of the infants, toddlers and pre-schoolers (ČAIPA) was established in February 2013. The association has its headquarters in Třinec, the cradle of such activities. Among the most common and favourite services and programmes for parents and the youngest children belongs the training of the correct manipulation and stimulation of the child in form of practising and swimming with children from their birth. Initiator and author of ČAIPA´s koncept is Eva Kiedroňová, the persistent propagator of children rights to happy childhood and creator of childcare methods for the proper development of children.

The main goal of ČAIPA is to provide the highest level of all the services for families with the youngest children not only in the Czech Republic but also in the Czech communities abroad.

Another goal of ČAIPA is to provide all the services for children and their parents not only in harmony with all the hygiene and safety standards but also with the current child development level supporting its natural expected psychomotoric development in the correct order and with the usage of the correct techniques.

The goal is that the instructors of all the activities with the youngest have deeply rooted theoretical information about the psychomotoric development of the child, at the same time the practical experience with proper manipulation and stimulation of the child during the common daily care, while playing and practising on the dry surface and in water, to be able to include such skills into the educational process as the basis of all the activities which should be guided by such principles.

The goal is therefore to offer the organizations and instructors dealing with activities above-mentioned the maximum of help and support and through that to offer the parents the list of the highly qualified organizations and programmes to ensure, that their valuable time, money and effort devoted to such activities become once the real benefit for their children.
