Our Curriculum

At CreaKids, every child is seen, heard and valued. ​

As part of the Dibber group, we have the support of a team of Pedagogues that ensure that our curriculum is continually reviewed and updated so that we provide currency and quality in the curriculum that we deliver.

At our CreaKids Nursery, our curriculum supports children from birth – 6 years of age. Children are separated in to classes based on their age, and in line with KHDA (Knowledge and Human Development Authority) guidance.

Our 7 characters ensure that every child has a balanced and holistic learning journey with us. Our teachers plan to ensure that each child’s needs and interests are taken in to account – we also take advantage of all learning that happens ‘in the moment’. Our teachers are skilled at looking for and creating moments of discovery whenever the opportunity presents itself.

tree of education

Dibber holds a holistic approach to children’s education and development. Our defining marks and overarching principles - playful learning, interaction and mastery - guide all our work. Dibber’s ‘Tree of Education’ is an integral part of Nordic Curriculum. It is a model of the educational content we wish to impart. It provides a framework and shows important connections between children’s happiness, development and learning.

The Core

The core of our endeavours is to strengthen the child’s sense of self-worth. Our aim is to make the child confident enough to be able to cope with challenges. This leads to life mastery and lifelong journey.

The Trunk

The Trunk of the tree represents play and motion and is upheld by our learning friends Jumping Jack and Play Penny. The Trunk holds the tree together as everything we do is through play and motion.

The Leaves

The leaves of the tree represent the areas of learning such as Math, Nature, Heart, Language and Creativity. We give children an opportunity to learn, discover and wonder at mathematical relationships and promote making positive relationships. Children are inquisitive by nature we give them an opportunity to explore nature in all its diversity - view, explore and understand the world around them.

The Roots

The roots represent the holistic view of learning and the foundation of our educational philosophy. Active Adults, Wondering and Exploration, Notion Practice, Repetition and Progression, Interactive Circle time and Groups and the Physical Learning Environment represents the roots.

  • Active Adults – The role of the adult is essential, creating a pleasant and stimulating environment that contributes to the development of the children.
  • Wonder and Exploration – Children are inquisitive by nature. We should give them an opportunity to wonder and explore.
  • Notion Practice – Active use of notions and words strengthen the foundation to rich vocabulary and are vital to further language development.
  • Repetition and Progression - Repetition enables the children to discover new details and helps with remembrance and recognition. Progression is when children develop, learn and progress.
  • Interactive Circle Time and Groups - Children coming together to share ideas and form relationships. This will help build communication and language
  • Physical Learning Environment - The physical learning and play environment refers to both the physical and social environment in which the children interact with. It includes how we design our physical spaces, how we interact with each other and the culture we promote. We want our environment to be engaging, and that goes hand in hand with out active adults in making an environment that encourages development and learning.
