INTRODUCTION
Happy Chappies was opened in 2005, in response to parents searching for a quality nursery, run by qualified teachers, as opposed to non-qualified care-givers. During our first year, our fledgling classes proved to be what was intended; a place where children can come to play and learn within a stimulating, enjoyable and richly educational atmosphere, under the watchful eye of trained staff. We are officially registered and licenced by the Ministry of Education, Ministry of Labour & Social Affairs, and are governed by local health and safety regulations.


CURRICULUM
Happy Chappies has a strong Montessori influence which allows a child to develop at his/her own pace, with gentle guidance using a wide range of activities, learning materials, discussion, creative play, singing and projects on relevant topics of interest to each individual.
We aim to provide a rounded education covering the usual pre-school curriculum including personal, social and emotional development, communication, language literacy, mathematical development, knowledge and understanding of the world, physical and creative development.


STAFF
The Happy Chappies team consists of qualified British, Australian and South African nursery teachers. Each class has a qualified teacher, supported by a teaching assistant and a general assistant. Every employee has been carefully selected for their genuine love of and affinity for children, and for their warm and caring natures.


FACILITIES
Three exceptionally spacious, bright and sunny classrooms, all of which are well-equipped and furnished with the very best educational equipment available from the UK. Each classroom also has a computer to introduce children to basic IT skills.
Our Jungle Room is an enormous indoor play area with padded floors, and specific areas dedicated to soft play, imaginative play and physical activity using our gym equipment.
Our fully equipped, colourful library is the perfect setting to encourage a child to read. The children will have access to all of the books for their own reading pleasure, in addition to listening to stories during our dedicated story times.
Our secure outdoor garden and playground is filled with a colourful array of cars, houses, slides, a sandpit and much, much more.
An added comfort for parents is that, in addition to having a safe, secure playground, we also have a security guard on duty daily, from 7.30am - 2.30pm.

SCHOOL YEAR AND SCHOOL DAY

8.00am - 1.00pm, Saturday to Wednesday
Early drop-off from 7.30am

EDUCATIONAL PHILOSOPHY
Our goal is to provide all of the children in our care a safe, clean and comfortable, loving environment, rich in resources, where they can play and learn. We believe in the value of both structured and flexible schedules. Structured actvities are based on the Montessori principals, which cover developmental activities designed to meet the needs of children in five curriculum areas;

Practical life skills
Sensory motor activities
Mathematical skills
Language skills
Cultural knowledge

There is an atmosphere of co-operation in the classroom, not competition.
We also draw ideas and experiences from a number of different programmes. We offer regular story times, arts and crafts, musical activities, learning about the world around us, taking care of ourselves, animals and our environment, and much, much more.

The most important priority is for your child to have fun while they learn!
