Childstart International

The Smart Start

Welcome Message from the Directress

Welcome to Childstart a place where children naturally blossom and thrive; where opportunities for learning are unending; where every moment is learning in action; where there is joy in teaching; where the environment is safe, stimulating, and relaxed, all at the same time. It is a happy place where children have a desire to keep coming back to, again and again. This is something we do seamlessly as years of experience have allowed us to keep the joy that has helped children enjoy learning.

At Childstart, we consider our system and community unique and common at the same time. We are unique in the way we teach, understand, and discipline our children.

  • Our teaching is personal. We understand the learning needs of each child, and we find creative and appropriate ways for each child to learn.
  • We understand that learning comes naturally; it cannot be forced. Hence, we find and determine how each child learns best and use that to help them learn.
  • Also, we understand our parents and the desires of their heart when it comes to their children. We do our best to establish a strong relationship with parents in honing their children.
  • We know that discipline is important in maintaining a happy community. Children find security when boundaries are set. The boundaries help them determine how and when to behave within a safe environment.

We are common in the way we care for children, just like everyone else. We all want children to learn and develop their cognitive skills, to have a positive self-image, and to learn to communicate and interact positively with one another. We want children to have a joyful heart and a healthy body.

Come join us and allow yourself and your child to experience the unique and common. We guarantee a smart start for your children — this is the Childstart way.

About Us

Childstart has always been a place where children fall in love with learning —where children cry when we have holidays, because they just find so much happiness in school. Today, this remains the same. Through the years, we have found the perfect balance among different types of learning, including directed, facilitated, collaborative, and self-directed.

  • Directed: Children need appropriate directions and guidance to learn and self-regulate. Children feel safe when rules and guidelines are provided. They are able to navigate their way within the rules and thrive.
  • Facilitated: After children are directed and taught, regardless of what we teach, be it preschool content or behavior, we facilitate, discuss, and share to see how much they have understood and learned. This is how we know how much a child has learned.
  • Collaborative: Children are social beings; they have the desire to interact and work with one another. Hence, they need to learn collaborative skills for them to enjoy working together. Hence, at Childstart, projects are part of our activities. As they learn to work together, their feeling of self-worth increases.
  • Self-directed: Self-direction comes naturally to children, but often, they are so regulated because adults are afraid for their safety and for them to make mistakes and fail. Learning self-direction in a safe and encouraging environment is something we are good at. As children are encouraged to make choices, they learn to feel success and at times feel failure. Experiencing both are good as it leads children to be at home with both positive and negative feelings in a safe environment.

This might sound like big words from a preschool standpoint, but experience taught us that incorporating all those learning styles are necessary. As always, we at Childstart aims to provide children with physical, social, emotional, and cognitive age-appropriate activities to meet the needs of all types of learners. These activities coupled with a safe and stimulating environment and the caring and nurturing personalities of our faculty and staff allow children to blossom and thrive in their preschool years.
