It’s not every day you discover a nursery that prides itself on nurturing your little ones into global citizens of the future. Empathy, tolerance and compassion are traits that every parent wants to instil in their child, so when we discovered the unique SOUL (Spirit of Universal Love) Programme at Chubby Cheeks nursery, we had to find out a little more…
What is the SOUL Programme?
The SOUL Programme aims to instil a love for the environment and for society into the hearts of every child. In a nurturing environment, Chubby Cheeks adopt a worldly approach to early education where children learn about society and participate in charitable causes and community initiatives. The nursery aims to encourage empathetic attitudes and compassion from a very young age with the belief that children who develop such traits are more compassionate and tolerant of those from different backgrounds and cultures. Exactly what this world needs, right? More love and more self-confidence in each and every child.
How does the rest of the Curriculum work?
Chubby Cheeks Nursery adopt a Lifelong Learning approach that fuses together the best of multiple educational approaches. You’ll find a curriculum that blends the best of EYFS, Montessori approach, Reggio Emilia styles, Howard Gardner Multiple Intelligences Theory, Waldorf Steiner and High Scope curriculum. The ‘Lifelong Learning‘ approach is built around 4 main principles:
- Embracing Diversity
- Holistic Education
- Education for Life
These principles are taught through a number of activities including sensory play, creative arts, interactive games, smart learning, physical development and more.
Are there any language classes for your little ones? Yes. French and Arabic are also offered as part of the curriculum, so your mini linguists will be speaking multiple languages in no time.
How does Chubby Cheeks keep parents in the loop about progress? Impressively, this nursery has its own app – the Chubby Cheeks Nursery Parent Communicator App. A ‘workbook’ is also sent home on a weekly basis so that you can track progress at any time.
But how will my child get school admission if there is no connecting school? Children that graduate from Chubby Cheeks Nursery benefit from admission opportunities at a number of top schools around the UAE.
Are there extra-curricular activities?
With a strong focus on ‘learning through play’, the nursery offers a massive array of activities for children to take part in; these include music and dance, junior gym and yoga, story time, dress up days and so much more.
Extra-curricular activities include ballet, karate, gymnastics, yoga and ball skills. Hands up if you were offered all of those opportunities when you were a toddler?!
Can you tell me more about the facilities?
All spaces and environments are an opportunity to learn new skills, so Chubby Cheeks Nursery has created multiple zones where children can get involved with age-appropriate activities. Boasting a children’s gym with mini bikes and treadmills, an outdoor area with swings and slides and an outdoor biking track, this nursery strongly believes in ensuring children stay active and creative. Our personal favourite has to be the small world role-play corner which features a dress-up station, mini supermarket, kitchen and more fun activities the little ones will love. There are even ‘Smart Rooms’ which encourage audio-visual learning using interactive smart board technology.
