Creative Learning

Our Big Dreamers follow a formal home school curriculum, called Impak, in a small group setting. At our centre we have equipped tutors who assist the child in reaching the goals of the curriculum in a calm, motivating environment. We provide smaller classes which allow for a lot of individual attention.

"Everyone is a genius, but if you judge a fish on its ability to climb a tree it will spend it’s whole life feeling stupid."
~ Albert Einstein

The classroom is designed in such a way that learning can be an interactive and sensory experience, stimulating the creative mind. We believe that “if a child does not learn the way we teach, then we must teach the way they learn”, and thus learning is a very individualized process. 

​Although we acknowledge that all round academics are important, we focus greatly on other areas of development, whether it may be social, emotional, or motor skills development. In this way, we encourage a well-rounded, healthy child with confidence and strong character.

We teach the children:

Capabilities

To focus on what they can do, instead of what they cannot do.

Interests

To explore their interests and natural abilities and build on their creative thinking.

Diversity

To realize that everyone is unique, and embrace and love their diversity.

Thinking Skills

To become critical thinkers.

Environmental Awareness

To utilize the way their creative minds work, to make a positive contribution to their environment.

We focus on building a relationship of trust with the child, and our goal is to create successful adults in a rapidly changing world.

Why IMPAK?

The Impak curriculum is in line with CAPS and thus allow children to easily transition from the mainstream setting to our centre. It also allows the child to write the National Senior Certificate examination in Grade 12 through the accredited examination board, Secai, and thus they can further their tertiary studies in South Africa.
