Dear Parents,

As we embark on a new month, the International Children’s Creativity Center is excited to continue our mission of providing valuable insights into child development. Last month, our expert advice centered around the topic of surviving preschool separation. Building on this, our focus this month is on how to sustain a successful transition and establish a strong program where children feel comfortable and thrive in their learning.
  1. Consistency is Key:

    One of the fundamental principles in fostering a stable environment for children is consistency. Whether it’s the daily routine, the learning schedule, or the way teachers handle various situations, maintaining a predictable atmosphere helps children feel secure. When expectations are clear, children can better understand and adapt to their surroundings.

  2. Open Lines of Communication:

    Establishing strong communication channels between parents, teachers, and children is crucial for a successful transition. Regularly discuss your child’s experiences, joys, and challenges at school. Likewise, teachers should openly share insights into your child’s progress, creating a unified front that supports the child’s overall development.

  3. Individualized Approaches:

    Every child is unique, with distinct learning styles, preferences, and needs. Recognizing and respecting these individual differences is paramount for a stable program. Teachers and parents should collaborate to understand each child’s strengths and areas for improvement, tailoring the learning experience accordingly.

  4. Encourage Independence:

    As children transition from preschool to a more structured program, fostering independence is key. Encourage your child to take on responsibilities, make choices, and solve problems on their own. This not only builds confidence but also equips them with essential life skills that contribute to their overall development.

  5. Create a Positive Learning Environment:

    A positive and nurturing atmosphere is essential for a child’s well-being and success. Teachers play a pivotal role in cultivating this environment by promoting kindness, empathy, and respect. Parents can support this by reinforcing positive behavior at home and engaging in open conversations about the importance of these values.

  6. Establish a Supportive Community:

    Building a strong sense of community within the school environment is vital for children’s social and emotional development. Encourage friendships and collaboration among peers, fostering a supportive network that extends beyond the classroom. Parent involvement in school activities also contributes to a sense of belonging and security for the children.

The International Children’s Creativity Center remains committed to providing expert advice to support you on this journey. Here’s to fostering a nurturing environment where every child can flourish!

Warm regards,
The team of International Children’s Creativity Center

    How did you hear about ICCC?

    ICCC Membership is annual and is paid in full for the school year in attendance (September – June). Attendance in July and August is optional. When a child joins after the start of the school year the fee is calculated proportionally. There is no discount for longer absences for holidays or other reasons.

    ICCC is open 12 months a year between the hours of 8.00a.m. to 18.00p.m.. While all care and attention will be given to safeguard the children during these hours, the Center will not be responsible for any injury caused beyond the control of staff. No responsibility will be taken outside working hours.

    ICCC admits children based on space availability and age. Priority is given to siblings, English native speakers and expat families.
