The philosophy behind our school programs: providing education that will equip the young with future superior management skills they will use to navigate the demands of an ever-changing world. The education and work ethic students will acquire will equip them with the necessary tools to make the most of increased globalization and technological advancement.

I. OUR CURRICULUM IS SKILL-BASED:

  • It is designed to use and develop children’s creative abilities Our curriculum is designed to develop children’s creative capacities through critical thinking, analyzing, reasoning skill development, successful skill transfer/application to different areas of study, independent study skill development, and new knowledge self-discovery.
  • It focuses on developing problem-solving skills and critical thinking strategies at an early age
    Our curriculum is designed to develop problem solving skills through cultivating and growing children’s creative capacities.
    As such, our focus is directed towards:
    • a creative environment conducive to and laying the foundation for the development of children’s imagination and thinking as well as the ability to experience emotions and make choices
    • programs enhancing children’s creative skills
    • creative teachers and teaching providing the optimum balance between structure and freedom of expression for young children
    • student support and encouragement to construct their own personal interpretations of knowledge and events.

II. OUR CURRICULUM OFFERS A PSYCHOLOGICAL APPROACH TO EDUCATION AIMING AT CHILD COGNITIVE AND SOCIAL DEVELOPMENT:

It uses two core teaching methods in a dual stage knowledge acquisition

  • STAGE I: The teaching method at Stage 1 of the knowledge-acquisition process aims to develop children’s exploration and discovery skills and to cultivate creativity. This teaching method is called the Experiential Learning method. It is based on Piaget’s pedagogy which focuses on children’s innate curiosity, combined with the Socratic Method of Inquiry which fuels/facilitates discovery/exploration. The method aims at using and growing children’s innate curiosity of the world and transforming it in exploration/discovery skill; cultivating creativity.
  • STAGE II: The teaching method at Stage 2 of the knowledge-acquisition process targets learning skill development cultivating creativity/problem solving such as, observation, analysis, and capacity of developing new ideas. It ensures solid comprehension and knowledge retention without mere fact memorization.
    This teaching method is referred to as the Zone of Proximal Development (ZPD) approach developed by Vygotsky. The ZPD is a psychological principle applied to education based on training-the-mind-to-think pedagogy emphasizing originality of thought/creativity. The Zone of Proximal Development method is defined as learning by being provided with cooperative activities to co-construct or extend knowledge of how the world works; it builds on the Experiential Learning method through social interaction. Students will be guided towards answers/solutions through consistent feedback and scaffolding in a peer/teacher assisted teaching process.

Our programs’ primary objective is superior accomplishment of knowledge acquisition and application based on the methodology proposed.

Great consideration will be given to the child’s personality as central factor influencing the learning style. As such, instructional activities have been selected to accommodate different learning styles, motivate learning, and make sense for the child.
