Curriculum

We plan our activities such that the children are able to gain experience around the curriculum or framework established to develop language and communication, problem solving, knowledge and understanding of the world, physical, personal, social and creative skills. We ensure that there are sufficient age appropriate play equipment and resources which support children’s learning and development to enable them attain their maximum potential

The curriculum is organised and planned under eight areas of learning:

  • Spatial Intelligence (Visualisation Skills)
  • Naturalistic (Understanding Nature)
  • Language Skills (Art of Expression)
  • Analytical Thinking (Power)
  • Musical Skills (Understanding music)
  • Inter-personal Skills (Group Behaviour)
  • Intra-personnel (individual Growth)
  • Bodily Kinaesthetic (Molding Physique)

The individual needs of each child however are respected at all times. Care and respect are seen as key to developing the confidence and self esteem that will prepare them for future schools.

After Smiley Birds?

Smiley Birds children have learned to work independently and in groups. Since they've been encouraged to make decisions at an early age, these children are problem solvers who can make choices and manage their time well. They have also been encouraged to exchange ideas and to discuss their work freely with others and good communication skills ease the way in new settings.

The habits and skills which a child develops in Smiley Birds classroom are good for a lifetime. They will help the child to work more efficiently, to observe more carefully and to concentrate more effectively, no matter where the child goes as long as he/she is in a stimulating environment, whether at home or at school, his self-education - which is the only real education - will continue.

Research has shown that the best predictor of future success is a sense of self-esteem. Our programs, based on self-directed, non-competitive activities, help children develop good self images and the confidences to face challenges and change with optimism.
