CURRICULUM

TIK has a “whole child” approach to education that aims to develop children intellectually, physically, emotionally, socially, and aesthetically. We are committed to instilling each child with a strong sense of morals, values, and character that all parents can be proud of. We provide a comfortable, caring, and stimulating environment where each child has the opportunity to develop the confidence, self-awareness, and tools they need to be successful in all aspects of their lives.

We believe that every activity is an opportunity for growth and learning, whether it be through play, daily routines, social interactions, or academics. At TIK, learning is everywhere!

TIK provides a comprehensive curriculum that is aligned to both US State standards and best practices in international schools. Our curriculum supports the intellectual, physical, emotional, social, and aesthetic development of young children. The developmental standards and goals of this curriculum focuses on seven key areas:

  • Social and Emotional Development
  • Physical Development
  • Language Literacy
  • Mathematics and Reasoning
  • Social Studies
  • Creative Development
  • Science
  • Second Language Acquisition

The TIK curriculum is designed to meet the needs of young children from 18 months till 6 years. Early childhood is a period of remarkable growth where children seek out the stimuli they need in order to nourish their developing abilities. Young children need a strong foundation of experiences that will be essential for life-long learning, a strong sense of self, and a genuine thirst and passion for learning.

It is during this time that children begin to develop higher order thinking skills such as problem solving and logical reasoning. Our curriculum is tailored to provide these much needed experiences for your child.

OUR PROGRAMMING

Our programming is child-centered and maintains a balanced approach where children experience both self-directed and guided activities. Children are encouraged to explore, manipulate, create, and construct things in their environment.

We also recognize the importance of play in child development. Play is a child’s path to learning and developing important life skills. Play provides opportunities for children to observe their environment first hand, use their imagination, develop and enhance linguistic skills, practice social interaction, make decisions and solve problems, develop body and spatial awareness, and express their feelings, thoughts, and ideas. The aim of our programming in a word is balance. Our “whole-child” approach centers around giving children the tools they need to succeed not only in the classroom, but in life.
