Our Syllabus

A Holistic Approach to Early Childhood Education

Our curriculum encompasses a wide range of subjects, including sensorial development, pre-math skills, literacy, science exploration, cultural awareness, and more.

Children Doing Arts and Crafts At School


There is in a child a special kind of sensitivity which leads him to absorb everything about him, and it is this work of observing and absorbing that alone enables him to adapt himself to life.

This bonded relationship between learning and the senses is relevant in the development of the forming child. The importance of the senses in relationship to the expansion of the mind is enriched through the Sensorial environment.

The nursery environment provides for the children an opportunity to explore all of their senses through individual activities that help to isolate, yet, still enhance all the senses.

Pre-math skills

The only way to learn MATHEMATICS is to do MATHEMATICS.

Children learn important math skills through their play and routines, and need to experience a lot of doing and saying, using concrete materials that they can manipulate to learn math in the early years.

Young children develop early math skills in a variety of areas like:

  • Promote the concept of one-to-one correspondence through kinesthetic learning – Letting the child combine the assignment of each number word with the physical act of either moving, touching with a finger, or pointing at the object it represents.
  • Shapes are everywhere in our natural environment. We know children learn through play and everyday activities and experiences.
  • Encourage children to compare quantities

Literacy skills

The goal of early childhood education should be to activate the child’s own natural desire to learn.

Researchers have identified a window of time from birth to around age 8 as crucial for a child’s development of literacy.

Pictures, play, and the printed word combine with oral language to help your child understand the symbolic representation that underlies reading and writing. Teacher will use a variety of fun, engaging strategies in the classroom to develop literacy.

Our programme supports children to develop:

  • conversational skills with one other person, in small groups and in large groups to talk with and listen to others;
  • their vocabulary by learning the meaning of - and being able to use - new words;
  • their ability to use words to describe their experiences;
  • their knowledge of the sounds and letters that make up the words we use;
  • their ability to listen to, and talk about, stories;
  • knowledge of how to handle books and that they can be a source of stories and information;
  • knowledge of the purposes for which we use writing


A child more than anyone else, is spontaneous observer of nature.

Each child is a vibrant, curious person that has an inner drive to discover the world. We cultivate a lifelong interest in observing nature and discovering more about the world in which we live through various activities. NATURE CLUB provides kids with hands on experience of growing and nurturing plants and taking care of the environment.


As a child, my generation wondered about the world… your children are going to be of the world… experiencing similarities and differences, wonder and appreciation, respect and hopefully working together.

When children leave home to attend preschool, they don’t leave their culture or language at home — they take all of the unique cultural skills, tools, and knowledge you have taught them during the early years of their life. Therefore, a best practice in early childhood education is what’s called culturally responsive teaching.

Culturally Responsive Teaching draws upon the cultural knowledge, skills, and talents young children bring with them from home and can be reinforced by ;

  • Intentionally encourage all children to be contributing members within the classroom community;
  • Build young children’s self-confidence and skills;
  • Promote the development of inclusive peer groups and friendships (age, gender, culture etc..)


Play gives children chance to practice what they are LEARNING.

High-quality preschool programs provide several opportunities daily for children to run, climb, and play active games.

This is why at Happy Hearts we have a variety of indoor and outdoor activities to learn and grow as they play.

Motor Skills

We learn to do something by doing it. There is no other way.

Activities are offered to help children develop fine motor skills, such as threading beads or cutting with scissors. And children are challenged through a variety of activities to build their hand-eye coordination and balance.

At Little Hearts Nursery variety of activities include running, ball sports, car driving area, golf and other developmental games. Our kiddy fit gym also host  yoga and soft play area ensuring that all our kids experience new and different activities.


Art is a medium to give children the desire to grow, dream, speak freely.

Children express and represent what they observe, think, imagine, and feel through two- and three-dimensional art. Art activities are also used to promote and enhance children’s learning in literacy (e.g., writing and illustrating stories, labeling pictures), mathematics (e.g., sequences and patterns), and other cognitive and social areas.

Social and Emotional Development

Free the child’s potential, and you will transform him into the world.

Encourage children to understand self-respect, and respect for adults and other children, to build confidence and relationships with others through communication, sharing and cooperation.

We help the child to act for herself, will for herself, think for herself.


The fact that children can make BEAUTIFUL MUSIC is less significant that the fact that music can make BEAUTIFUL CHILDREN.

Everyone is born with a capacity for music. However, just as oral language, or other abilities, music cannot develop without experience.

With music, children learn rhythm, pace, artistic expression, new words and have great fun. Our program uses specialized & age appropriate musical instruments which supports their need to play and socialize in a creative and exciting way. Opportunities to integrate movement and music with literacy, math, science, culture and other content domains are included throughout the daily routine.

Cognitive skills

The child, making use of all that he finds around him, shapes himself for the future.

Our events are designed to complement the nursery curriculum and are a great opportunity for our children to extend their class learning and also be part of the community.

  • Sand and water paly
