"Do not teach a child to learn by force or harshness but direct them to it by what amuses their minds, so that you may be better able to discover with accuracy the peculiar bent of the genius in each."


"Teaching should be such that what is offered is perceived as a valuable gift and not as a hard duty."

Albert Einstein

"We shouldn't teach great books; we should teach a love of reading."

B.F. Skinner


At Smilestones, our aspiration is for all children to grow up competent, confident, and responsible learners, making valued contribution to society.

Early childhood is a period of remarkable growth, and enriched learning experience makes a profound difference. Research demonstrates that young children learn best through active, engaged, meaningful learning in an early education program with enriched comprehensive curriculum and developmentally appropriate practices.

Our program utilizes variety of teaching methods grounded in research, and children are provided with opportunities to acquire and master concepts in formal and informal learning environments.

Informal learning environment encourages spontaneous play where children engage in activities based on their interests. Play activities include team work, investigations, construction, dramatic and interactive play.

Formal learning environment facilitates intellectual growth by engaging children in individual and small group projects that strengthen their disposition to observe, experiment, inquire, reason, persevere and examine the aspects of their environment empowering them to take active part and enthusiastically embrace learning experience.

Enriched comprehensive curriculum includes:

  • literacy
  • mathematics
  • language arts
  • international and sign languages
  • science
  • music and movement
  • dramatic and interactive play
  • creative art
  • physical education and yoga
