Education

Program

Our program is designed for a mixed group of children aged between three and five years old.

Preschool Children

We’ve found that interaction between children of different ages helps the children to learn from and teach each other. It fosters respect for each other’s differences and creates a sense of leadership among the older children.

 

We provide a structure that helps the children to learn about boundaries so that they feel secure and safe. We provide a space for the children to express themselves freely during Free Play, and we encourage the children to solve problems not only to help themselves but also to resolve social conflicts.

 

We believe in giving the children quiet time in their own space to allow them to daydream, imagine, and feel a calmness within themselves. We give them a balance in their active day by providing experiences that range through science, art and Yoga to music, gardening, healthy food preparation and our recycle project.

 

At the end of the day we encourage the children to share their gratefulness.

Methodology

Our curriculum is based on play and experience, and is oriented towards nature and the environment.

Children Gardening

Over the course of a year, we’ll cover six essential early childhood topics:

  • Who Am I?
  • How Do I Communicate?
  • What is the World Made Of?
  • How do I Share the Planet?
  • How does the World Work?
  • Where Am I in Place and Time?

 

Learning is project-based with prior knowledge, formative experience, and summative assessments that build a portfolio of a child’s learning. Our Integrated Curriculum offers subjects that are taught as part of the current learning theme.

 

Teachers act as role models, facilitators and stage designers for the learning environment. Best practices and teacher training ensure inquiry-based learning with lots of hands-on, exploratory experience and time for play. Children develop imagination, ideas, social skills, physical skills, and creative abilities.
