Your child’s first school experience should be the beginning of a successful learning journey.

Big Kids - Kindergarten - for children from 3.5 - 6 years old
The kindergarten groups continue their focus on developing strong, independent learners through an enquiry-based learning style. It is our general objective to create a framework which favours the development, well-being, and independence of children and is responding to the child’s interest and creativity (emergent curriculum). We monitor each child’s individual progress and prepare children to be ready to enter international primary schools.
We offer flexible programs with a minimum of 5 mornings till5 full day programs with the possibility of extending the day with afterschool activities. The groups have a maximum of 18 children.
After School Activities - for children from 3,5 to 6 years old
We are committed to the whole development of the child, addressing children’s social, physical, emotional and cultural needs with equal importance to their academic needs. Our After School Activities Program allows children to explore their talents and enhance their creative development.
Available Every Tuesday, and Thursday. Participation once a week is possible. The groups have a maximum of 18 children and are led by our own, foreign teachers.
Come play, enjoy and socialize at our FREE SmartKids Playgroup. Children from 12 months to 3 years old are welcomed at this playgroup with a parent or caregiver.
The playgroup is suitable for children who are not yet old enough for preschool but are ready to explore an environment away from home and interact with other children. Each 90-minute session includes free play in our child-friendly facility/playground, offering indoor and outdoor play, crafts, fine motor activities and sensory play.
English Language Centres
The SmartKids Playful-English© afterschool language classes are carefully prepared to combine playful learning with fun-activities in a stimulating environment where children learn English with the same ease as they pick-up their mother-tongue.
The Playful-English© course (SuperTots 3-6 years) provides a solid base for even the youngest children learning English for the first time.
The program offers your child 16 weeks long - twice a week a 1.5 hour of “edutainment” - playing and socializing with other children- while learning English through games, songs, rhymes and stories. Through these activities the children strengthen their speaking, pronunciation and pre-reading skills and obtain an excitement for the language.
