Creative Child Nursery School

Description

Description

Creativity means having the power or quality to express yourself in your own way. Children are naturally creative. They see the world through fresh, new eyes and then use what they see in original ways. One of the most rewarding parts of working with children is the chance to watch them create. They do it all the time, all by themselves. Caregivers need only to encourage the natural creativity that exists. Children display creativity in all parts of play, but especially in four main areas: Art, Language, Music and Movement and Fantasy. Staff members also serve as examples to the children, since children learn as much by observing others as they do by direct instruction. The teaching staff acts as facilitators rather than the directors of activities. Children are allowed to use their creativity according to their own ability and ideas.


 Mission 

Creative Child aspires to provide the right conditions where your child can thrive as an emotionally intelligent, healthy and creative child.

Our unique curriculum is based on active learning and it fosters the emotional, physical, social and cognitive needs of children. Providing a stimulating and professional preschool experience, Creative Child prepares children aged 12 months to 4 years old for the school years.


History

Creative Child opened its doors in September 2004.

Since the beginning, Creative Child has aimed to have high international standards that provide the best childcare for residents and non-residents of Riviera Gardens Compound.

Creative Child started with a couple of classrooms and less than 30 children. Today we have a maximum capacity of 150 seats with 7 different classes, huge outdoor and indoor facilities with the best equipment, toys and the well-equipped Academic Resource Room.


Curriculum

Our Curriculum is a blend of different educational approaches and methods. Creative Child follows EYFS (Early Years Foundation Stage) and has been inspired by Tools of the Mind and Reggio Emilia Practices.

We unique curriculum is based on playing that allows children to discover, explore, initiate and pretend. Our staff will guide children through appropriate student –teacher interaction strategies and careful planning. Creative Child Nursery School educational approach is based on theory, research and proven practices.

The young children can use for creative play in any way they like, within certain guidelines for safety and clean up.

Open-ended materials are like open-ended questions. There is no “one” answer or one “right” way to use them. Any child can enjoy, and be successful in creating with crayons, markers, clay, paper and glue. Recyclable loose parts like: wooden blocks, dress ups, props, real kitchen tools, mirrors, and natural materials like: seeds, stones, sand, and water are also open-ended materials which can be used in many ways. Using open-ended materials nurtures both the child’s creativity and self-esteem.


Daily Routine

The education program at Creative Child starts at 7:30 am and it finishes at 2:00 pm. However, we offer additional early care service from 6:30 to 7:00 am and Extended Care Service from 2:00 until 3:30 pm to accommodate the needs of working parents (Additional fees are applied).

Creative Child classrooms follow a predictable but flexible sequence of events known as the daily routine. Creative Child Nursery School provides a structure within which children can make choices, follow their interests, and develop their abilities in each content area. While each class decides on the routine that works best for its children’s ages and home routines the following segments are always included during the program day.

  • Children Arrival Time /Registration /Morning greetings is from 7:00 to 8:00 am.
  • Large Group Time (10-20 minutes a day). Large-group time builds a sense of community
  • Small Group Time (10-15 minutes a day). At small-group time, teachers introduce children to new materials, ideas, and activities. Both children and teacher actively engage with the materials and ideas in a variety of ways. The teacher develop a small-group activity based on children’s interests and particular skills, materials, or content areas that suit children’s developmental learning needs.
  • Free Play: Children will explore the different centers inside their classrooms. We also we keep an open-door policy to allow children to explore the common play areas.
  • Outdoor play: When weather conditions are safe, children and adults spend at least 30 minutes outside every day, enjoying vigorous and often noisy play in the fresh air. Additionally, children will also enjoy outdoor activities twice per week such as water play, sand play, and organised physical activity class.
  • Transition time Transitions are the minutes between other blocks of the day, as well as arrival and departure times. Teachers plan meaningful learning experiences for these times, which keeps children engaged and minimizes disruption.
  • Eating and resting times Meals and snacks allow children to enjoy eating healthy food in a supportive social setting. After lunch children will be encouraged to sleep or have a quiet time.
  • Departure Time goes from 1:30 to 2:00 pm.
  • After School Activities: Sporting & Non-sporting Activities: Daily language classes – Arabic, Spanish, French – are offered from 1:30 to 2:00 pm with additional fees. Free Yoga Classes from 1:30 to 2:00 PM twice per week. Monkey nastix – Twice per week from 2:00 to 2:45 PM with additional fees.
