What have we got to Offer ?

Our main service is childcare however we use our premises for the benefit of Maltese and Gozitan families by offering other opportunities such as Birthday Parties, Summer School and after School Hours.

Birthday Party

Summer School

Emergent Curriculum

After School Hours (3+)

Birthday Party

The childcare centre itself can also be used as a place where children's birthday celebrations and other events can be held. This is because the place can offer entertainment while it meets all safety standards.

Summer School

Magic Steps Summer School offers a unique experience to children between the ages of 3 and 6 years. Typically, our summer school programmes include hands-on learning and sports, along with math and reading-skills work. We try to offer children with a holistic experience so that they learn through play. Apart from the daily programme we organize weekly outings for children such as a visit to a farm, train ride, pottery at crafts village, pizza at bakery, planting in a garden, visit to some cultural sites amongst various other fun activities.

The 3 to 4 class consists of 2 groups, each group has a qualified kindergarten teacher who manages the class. The 5 to 6 class consists of 1 group of children which are led by a qualified primary teacher.

Contact Us for more information about our Summer Schools Programme and Applications.

Emergent Curriculum

AN EMERGENT CURRICULUM – WHAT IT IS AND WHY IT’S IMPORTANT

At Magic Steps, we focus on the Emergent Curriculum approach, because it provides the best overall results for children of all ages. In our childcare centre, the children’s ages are from infancy through pre-kindergarten. An Emergent Curriculum means: What comes from the children is the curriculum. So, at our childcare centre, we say, The curriculum walks in the door every day. We ensure that the setting is more child-led, giving them free will when it comes to making choices.

An emergent curriculum involves the whole child; meaning the social, emotional, cognitive, and physical realms of development and learning.

What does that mean in practice? We provide rich, diverse resources and low key, respectful support to children’s emerging interests and their various in-depth explorations and multi-media expressions. We observe to discover what the children are interested in and build on those inclinations, interests, and fascinations to help them learn naturally and holistically as powerful individual learners and as effective members in successful learning groups.

Do Children initiate the explorations and projects? They explore and express themselves in their own way and in their own time. Each exploration or project can take weeks or months, depending on the children’s sustained fascination, and can morph into new lines of inquiry and investigation.

After School Hours (3+)

An after school service for pre-schoolers (3 - 5 years) whose parents (even carers employed with the centres) work after school hours (Church schools in Gozo close at 1.30pm and parents ask for a childcare service after this time until the time they finish work).
