Learning Through Life Experiences

Back to Top »

Learning Through Life Experiences allows a child’s learning to become experimental, imaginative and sensory based. Our pedagogical approach is to learn through these real life experiences, such as emergency services, health and nutrition, etc. in an environment committed to reinforce children’s expertise, skills, and values. LTLE provides environments that make learning fun for children through the medium of role-play.

By blending reality with entertainment, it provides an authentic and powerful developmental platform where kids can discover, explore and learn about the real world.

Our city is a rich learning environment where kids foster their autonomy, creativity, decision-making skills, problem-solving skills and social values.

The realism of the role-play helps children learn about different careers, work and know how to manage money. Each activity experience is designed by Educationalists, Play Experts & Child Physiologists to aid and boost different behavioral skills and values in a child.

Toddler Program: (2-3 Years)

Our classrooms are filled with endless learning opportunities to enhance children’s cognitive and language skills with basic academics through small-group activities that encourage investigation, exploration, and discovery. Our scaffolding approach is a critical component in teaching new tasks with multiple steps where our teachers provide support for students. Our children that are now engaging in short sentence conversions are able to absorb information within our curriculum that is designed to support creative expression, literacy and music by fostering their curious minds. By introducing skills that enable independence through enriching art projects and hands-on activities, we are ensuring they are able to expand concepts that were developed in Little Explorers.

Preschool: (3-4 Years)

Our curious children are exposed to an environment which supports academic goals while immersing themselves into the beauty of the nature that surrounds them, incorporating a broader understanding of colors, shapes, letters and numbers. They are also taught during their creative circle to participate with open-ended questions that spark their cognitive, language and social skills. The children analyze information they know and continue to build their skills through experimenting, comparing and contrasting knowledge. Through everything they acquired while being in this group, the children are bursting with confidence and are ready to learn more about the world. This classroom provides an enriched and challenging hands-on curriculum that continues to ignite children’s inner curiosity enabling realistic learning opportunities through a solid routine that brings out their creativity. Exploring world geography, reading multicultural literature, researching world cultures, playing traditional games are just some of the ways we are building a community of global learners.

These children will continue to be life-long learners and will foster the love for exploration by further building on their existing knowledge base from geng additional exposure to science, math and technology. We implement many opportunities for growth and will continue to build on their emotional, social, cognitive, physical, communication, and academic skills. When the children leave our program, they will be ready to embark on their next journey and will be prepared to take on new challenges confidently!
