The goal of early childhood education should be to activate the child’s natural desire to learn – Maria Montessori.
Our Early Years department comprises well-resourced classrooms and a newly developed outside area. Learning focuses on the seven areas of education defined by the British Early Years Foundation Stages (EYFS), to which the Ghanaian curriculum is strongly aligned.
- Communication and language.
- Personal, social, and emotional development.
- Physical development.
- Understanding the world.
- Expressive arts and design.
We encourage a creative curriculum to help young minds develop imagination and critical thinking.
Please book an appointment to visit our newly developed early years area to discuss the learning opportunities for your child.
Accessible and engaging teaching and learning environments promote success for all children.
The Primary Curriculum at Multikids Inclusive Academy is wide and varied and follows Cambridge Assessment International Education but is not restricted by it. The primary department provides solid academic learning and is supported by various aligned programs like the acclaimed Sounds-Write program and Stepping Stones from ASDAN.
Children learn in a collaborative and challenging environment, with support for learning, communication, and behavior integrated by specialist teaching and therapy teams when needed.
Students can take the Cambridge International Checkpoint 6 assessments at the end of Primary if they are on an academic pathway. Multikids provide excellent learning and therapy support for students with learning differences, including a multi-sensory approach and assistive technology.
Our ethos is Every Child Matters, and we do not discriminate against any child based on ability or disability.
Education is the passport to the future; tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it today. Malcolm X
Lower Secondary School
The three years of lower secondary school can be an overlooked time in education but is a critical part of the child’s development. It is a time when they mature and can start to make real-life choices about their future and learning, but it is also a time of freedom before external exam pressure takes hold. Multikids combines academic, technical, creative & therapeutic rigor to support each student’s pathway at secondary.
Multikids strives to ensure individuals are challenged at their level and encouraged to use this time to consolidate gaps in their knowledge, skills, and understanding and explore their preferred areas of learning.
In Lower Secondary, we have two main pathways underpinned by creativity, ICT, and academic excellence.
- Learners working towards Cambridge International Checkpoint at Year 9 or an access course to BTEC.
- Different learners are assessed to enter a formal or semi-formal approach to their education. Those on a formal pathway will be gaining functional core skills in Numeracy, Literacy, and ICT, alongside studying one of the ASDAN Awards schemes. Learners who achieve success through a multi-sensory curriculum with a high level of support through therapy, specialized learning, and assistive technology are on a semi-formal pathway.
Studying toward Checkpoint 9
Lower Secondary students can prepare for the Cambridge Assessment International Education qualification through Lower Secondary exams called Checkpoint 9. Years 7 and 8 will be an intense consolidation of primary skills and preparation for IGCSE learning in Years 9 and 10.
Multikids support all learners at the Secondary level. With four main programs and opportunities to study both on and off campus, we can provide a tailor-made pathway for all learners who choose to study in our small, supportive environment.
Cambridge International Education IGCSE
It is a two-year academic-focused course accumulating in IGCSE, an internationally recognized qualification. A range of subjects is offered to suit students’ preferences and strengths. Our experienced team supports learners with dyslexia, ADHD, and other learning differences to achieve their potential in these challenging pathways to University.
BTEC is a three-level program offering vocational courses with academic rigor and internationally recognized qualifications. The system is a modular structure to enable students to achieve each module before moving to the next. In this way, the final accreditation is not based on one exam.
ASDAN provides a range of accredited courses that allow students with learning differences to develop core functional skills alongside experiences to support careers and independent living.
Getting Ready for the Outside World is a flexible careers-orientated program for all learners. Through career counseling and real work experiences, students get a chance to evaluate what they want their next step to be. Learners with differences gain support to build on talent and gain confidence to take ambitious steps after school. Multikids is committed to lifelong learning for all, regardless of ability or disability.
Nurturing future career pathways with BTEC
BTEC (Business Technology Education Council) qualifications are flexible – you can take one alongside (or instead of) GCSEs and A levels in schools and colleges. Multkids offers BTECs in Business, ICT, Performing Arts, and Art.
BTECs are divided into units, which cover specific areas of knowledge, skills, and understanding required by the particular sector or industry.
- Every BTEC student takes the core units, which provide a broad foundation and understanding of the sector, as well as Functional English and Functional Maths.
- There is a range of optional units to choose from, which enable students to focus on particular interests and plans for the next steps into further study, an apprenticeship, or employment.
- The course involves a series of assignments that can be written or activity-based, for example, creating a film clip, planning and performing, or creating a business plan. Students complete some tasks individually and some as part of a team. For some BTEC courses, students can also apply their knowledge and skills through work experience.
Multikid’s BTEC Students can typically progress to careers in Media and Technology, Fashion, Computer Technology, Business, and Entrepreneurship.
Multikid’s students can study the Cambridge Assessment International Education qualification as it is considered one of the world’s most recognized qualifications for employees and universities.
‘Cambridge IGCSE…provide broad and balanced study across a wide range of subjects, using learner-centered and inquiry-based approaches to learning.’
(Cambridge International website July 21)
ASDAN is an education charity and awarding organization providing regulated qualifications, accredited curriculum programs, and a range of other courses to engage, elevate and empower young people aged 11 to 25 years in greatest need. The Plan-Do-Review method of learning supports students preparing for their future careers while encouraging them to participate fully in a range of activities both in school, at home, and in the workplace.
Multikids students access various ASDAN courses that provide great opportunities to work collaboratively, present their learning, build independence, and nurture natural talents. These courses ‘help young learners discover their passion and purpose as they move forward into further education, work or training.’ (ASDAN)
Getting Ready for the Outside World (GROW)
Parents are always concerned about what their teenage children will do when leaving school, Especially if their child cannot access a traditional college or university course. Multkids devised a two- or three-year program focusing primarily on lifelong learning, with opportunities for meaningful career progression through counseling and work experience. Building Talent is one of our core values, and we see our learners graduate with skills for life and have developed a skill they can carry into a vocational placement or college setting. School leavers have moved on to fashion, catering, and IT Colleges, into self-employed design businesses, hair and beauty careers, support care assistants in a school setting, and photography, media, and film careers.
Multikids Inclusive Academy actively encourages students to participate in extra-curricular activities. The school’s creative solid culture regularly organizes events and shows celebrating student achievements and designs. The school also provides opportunities for dance, music, ‘Coder Dojo’ coding club, and sign language lessons.
Sports is a favorite with many of our students, and specialist soccer teachers visit the school weekly. Students also get the chance to learn martial art. For students who are on a vocational pathway, we offer opportunities for appropriate internships and work experience.
