Learning 

Learning is at the heart of the Smile school and much time has been spent defining learning, how it is used in our school and how it influences what is learnt.

Please scroll down to learn about learning, curriculum, our characteristics and more.

Curriculum

Our curriculum is based on International standards, with the knowledge, skills and understanding  presented through themes, investigations and are designed to support the child's curiosity.  Yet, all our learning is based firmly in the local context of Ghana.

Languages 

Children will be taught to speak, listen and read in both English and an additional language. Learning will be holistic and with meaning.  

Mathematics 

Learning mathematics is like building a wall. Firstly the foundations must be solid, then layer upon layer the concepts will be learnt.

Growth

Children need to grow in so many ways. At the Smile School children are nourished in so many ways.  Physical activities will include sports, mindfulness, meditation and yoga 

Themes

Learning through themes is about connections.  Learning while connecting allows understanding and supports the brains own processes.
