All CreaKids Programs & Curriculum

We have programs for children in ranging ages from infancy to 6 years

Heralding from Norway, the CreaKids brand was established in 2011 as part of the international holding company, Læringsverkstedet centres (www.laringsverkstedet.no).

 

Læringsverkstedet’s first preschool was founded in 2003, and has since then grown rapidly to become Norway´s largest preschool chain. Currently the group employs over 5000 people, each contributing to the development, care and education of more than 15,000 children in over 200 centres in Norway alone.

 

The global network has grown quickly and Læringsverkstedet / CreaKids centres are now available world wide. In 2013 the first international CreaKids location launched in Latvia with 1 centre, 30 employees and 100 children. Latvia will be opening 4 new locations by September this year. Expanding further afield, CreaKids are opening 16 centres in Sweden, 5 centres in Germany and an ongoing project in China.

 

Launched in 2015, CreaKids Ibn Battuta is the flagship CreaKids Early Learning Centre in the Middle East, and the first of many to come across the UAE and GCC. CreaKids Ibn Battuta employs 42 dedicated staff and is the source of learning to 135 children. This location has numerous classes catering from infancy to 6 years.

The owners from Norway have ambitious plans to expand Læringsverkstedet / CreaKids this year within the GCC and have secured their next location at The Sustainable City to meet the growing demand of child education in this growing community and the surrounding area.

 

CreaKids has consciously created a safe and pristine area where playful learning stimulates the mind, body, and self-confidence through unique, comprehensive methods and active adult mentoring.

At CreaKids, we offer multiple programs and curriculums :

 

 

Infant/ Toddler, Norwegian,

EYFS & Montessori

Infant/ Toddler Programs

infancy - 24 months

Our infant/ toddler rooms are designed to reflect the loving space of home, a comfortable place to learn, play, and grow.

We take special care to provide a warm and interactive environment. Our teachers work with each parent and toddlers to facilitate a smooth transition into our toddler program. We strive to create a bond with your baby that will make them feel safe, secure, and loved at our centre.

Norwegian Curriculum

(2yrs to 4yrs) • Preschool • Pre K

Learning, Interacting, Mastery

Our pedagogy comprises everything – from guiding principles to detailed teaching plans for themes such as creativity, language, nature, social competence and maths play.

 

We want children to experience the joy of mastery.

The centre should give the children belief in one’s self and in others. The joy they experience through motivating themselves, achieving new things, and feeling a sense of mastery is a ballast for the rest of their lives. That is why the children are presented with challenges that request something of them, along with the support and comfort they need for having the courage to overcome. At CreaKids, every child succeeds at something, every single day. Each individual should feel seen, acknowledged, and valued.

EYFS Curriculum (Early Years Foundation Stage)

• Preschool (2-3 years) • FS 1 (3-4 years) • FS 2 (4-5 years)

To be effective, an early year’s curriculum should be carefully structured. In that structure, there should be three major pillars:

 

• Provision for the different starting points from which children develop their learning, building on what they can already do;
• Relevant and appropriate content that matches the different levels of your children’s needs;
• Planned and purposeful activity that provides opportunities for teaching and learning, both indoors and outdoors.

Montessori Curriculum

(2.9yrs to 6yrs) • Pre K • KG 1 • KG 2

The Montessori classroom is equipped with specialist educational apparatus which is of simple, yet exact nature and provokes in the young child a profound reaction of interest and attention.

The apparatus is presented to the child in accordance to his needs, or what is termed in Montessori as the “sensitive learning periods” during which the child has the special capability of “picking up” particular skills and concepts on his own from the environment around him.
