TinyPreneurs is a broad-based, holistic programme that are conducted in the form of a puppet show because puppets offer children an engaging way to interact and explore their knowledge and understanding of the world. TinyPreneurs is a unique, innovative, and educational experience for children, as young as 4 years old, as they follow the journey and stories of Moolah, the puppet. The TinyPreneurs programme is FUN, it's ENTERTAINING, it’s EDUCATIONAL, it’s EXPERIENTAL & it’s LIFE CHANGING!
The design of the TinyPreneurs curriculum have been a collaborative effort between Young Entrepreneurs, pre-school educationalists and a leading puppeteer, Schoeme Grobler, to ensure that each lesson is age-appropriate.
Moolah the puppet takes the place of the child, and asks questions or admits confusion around themes of entrepreneurship and money, thereby connecting emotionally and cognitively with the child.
Through Moolah the children will make an emotional and cognitive connection to the themes of TinyPreneurs. As the child’s flexible thinking and independence is expanding at this age, TinyPreneurs challenges and assists the children to think around themes of entrepreneurship.
Moolah’s stories are followed by activities that challenges the child to apply what Moolah / the child has learned to his or her own life. These activities include imaginary play, craft time, storytelling, puzzles, games planning tasks, matching, sorting, memory skill, etc. Completing these activities leaves the child feeling confident and proud.
Apart from all the fun group activities, our TinyPreneurs will ultimately learn about entrepreneurship through the freedom of his or her own individual creativity.
At Tinypreneurs we believe in rewarding children to build their self-esteem:
Each child receives a special sticker at the end of each lesson.
A TinyPreneur participation hand out will be awarded to your child at the end of each term.
At the end of the year, after market day, your child will receive an awesome graduation certificate.
