ARRKI School of Architecture (optional for our preschoolers, PreK students and kindergarteners):
Europe’s most pioneering educational method! Our students become architects and create three dimensional structures and acquiring new techniques each time. Using architecture as a game they see the world from different points of view, they experiment, they design and discover their inclinations and talents. All the programs strengthen their three dimensional perception, their mathematical thinking and their communication skills.
As for architecture? It is used as a medium to help them structure their thoughts, stimulate their imagination and creativity and ultimately make them believe in themselves and that they too can become architects of their lives.
STEAM UP (optional for our preschoolers, PreK students and kindergarteners):
In a world that is constantly changing faster than you, you cannot sit idly by! And if it is hard for you to count or describe this world imagine how much harder it is for a child…How we learn is the beginning. To question. To wonder. To impress. To get excited. To experiment. To work together. To do everything right! From the beginning! STEAM UP, a group of scientists and educators designs and materialize educational programs, constantly searching for new tools and new discoveries. Together with the children they explore the world we live in from their “me” years and discoveries, at the same time helping their individuality and social development!
Swimming lessons are optional and take place at the OAKA indoor swimming pool. Specialized coaches are responsible for our children’s training under our educators’ supervision.
We attend experiential workshops and visit museums, theaters and every place that is suitable for our age and may bring new experiences to our magic world.
During the year we arrange 8 to 10 educational visits for the Groups 3-4 & 4-5 and the Pre-primary School. The visits serve each age group’s needs.
We put on our aprons and used our clean little hands to mix up the ingredients we use in cooking and baking! Our amazing chef Jenny along with her creativity and love for cooking and baking gives us the instructions needed to create our next meal! Every month our kindergarteners create new dishes sometimes sweet, sometimes salty, but always garnished with lots of love and served to our younger students by them, our masterchefs!
Our vegetable garden has gotten off to a great start by our gardener Kyrios Yiannis! Together with the children we take care of the fruits and vegetables we’ll be using in our meals!
