Pre KG, KG1 and KG2 at IDEA Early Learning Center in Victory Heights, Sports City offer the Creative Curriculum, the perfect foundation for your child’s transition after early years. We provide an exceptional nurturing environment for young children to explore, grow and learn within an innovative early years setting. Our staff are highly experienced and qualified. All of our children access high quality resources that range from innovative first hand teaching, purposeful progressive resources, state of the art technology, libraries full of a variety of texts, sensory activities, gross motor skill enhancements such as our Mud Kitchen and specialist equipment like that in our Soft Play Gymnasium.
Our qualified teachers are highly skilled to ensure that your child makes accelerated progress through their time at IDEA. With a focus on language, literacy and communication, the Creative Curriculum helps children to be ready for their transition to ‘big-school’ after IDEA ELC. We maintain the high teaching standards of a school, in our purposeful built, supportive and welcoming Early Learning Center.
The Creative Curriculum
The Creative Curriculum is deep in knowledge of child development with careful consideration of the latest research in the field of early childhood education. It offers unique experiences that tie directly with each child’s level of ability with their potential and growth in mind during every step of the learning process.
This observation-based assessment program is used to gather and organize meaningful data quickly. It is based on 38 research-based objectives for development and learning. Students move through these objectives which include milestones and objectives that are found in other curricula making the transition to primary and elementary schools seamless.
The Creative Curriculum is designed with studies throughout the year which are full of hands-on, project-based investigations. Through these studies children’s confidence, creative and critical thinking skills are developed and nurtured. Questioning skills, inquiry and discovering information are all at the forefront of the learning in each class. Students are encouraged to ask questions, formulate answers, and share information gained. Sharing and discussing ideas and thoughts is paramount and woven into every aspect of your child’s day.
We implement the Creative Curriculum because it covers all areas of child development and content learning and defines the knowledge, skills and behaviors that are critical to children’s future success in school and in life.

KG2 Timetable (aged 5-6 years)
Our KG2 Teachers adapt the KG1 timetable to reflect the age and stage of the children. When the children are ready, they reduce the amount of time spent on less formal activities such as exploration and increase the time spent on focused teaching. They also increase the time children spend at the library and incorporate significantly longer exposure to reading, writing, mathematics and discovery teaching. Our KG2 children will also spend time in their third term visiting feeder schools and being exposed to older children ready for their transition.
