Golden Oak is a Private English School which follows the British National Curriculum and incorporates Montessori teaching philosophies, thereby equally focusing on academic excellence and the personal-social development of its students. The main teaching language is English, but the Greek language is taught daily to the children for communication purposes. Golden Oak offers quality education with their Kindergarten, Pre-School, and Primary School.
In September 2023, Golden Oak opened its NEW CAMPUS in Ayios Athanasios ( 1 km up the road from the German Oncology Centre) with one of the most beautiful sea views in all of Limassol.
In September 2023, Primary School Grade 1 opened. In September 2024, Primary School Grade 2 will be opening. The growth plan of the school is to open the next class up for its students every year, growing with its students. There are plans to open a Secondary School in the coming years as well.
For the Early Years, our school delivers a blended curriculum that incorporates both Montessori Education and the UK Early Years Learning Framework. Our blended program takes only the best elements of both programs and they work together to enhance children’s learning and development during their crucial formative years. Montessori Education and the British Early Years Learning Framework work hand-in-hand to positively support children’s learning and development from birth to age six. Each curriculum provides children with a different approach to learning that ultimately supports not only their academic knowledge, but also their personal and social development. The Montessori Curriculum enhances the British Early Years Learning Framework by providing children with the optimal learning environment, materials, and guidance to discover their full potential. The Montessori Curriculum covers five key learning areas that focus on nurturing strong academic and well-being foundations. This type of learning provides children with hands-on learning experiences using educational materials that teach real-life skills and inspire a love of learning. We want our children to love learning to want to learn more and more. Let’s bring joy back into the classroom!
Golden Oak is operated by the same director as the successful language school “Empire Education Centre.” Deanna Tsikkou is an experienced English Language and Literature teacher and teacher-trainer, qualified in both British and American academic systems, who has been in the field of education for many years. She is not only a native English speaker, but also a vastly experienced educator in the Private Education Sector. But more importantly, she is the mother of two very different children in terms of educational abilities and maturity, so she understands how to help children that are developing at a different pace than their peers. She is a firm believer in differentiated teaching methods and materials in an inclusive classroom setting, where high achievers and fast learners can also receive more challenging tasks to ensure they remain stimulated. Her aim is to make sure that children of all developmental levels are given the equal opportunity to have a quality education. She wants to create the kind of educational system and environment that will bring back joy to education, to make children feel happy and fulfilled while still learning everything they need to learn academically. For her, it is important for children of all abilities to get used to working in an environment where differences are celebrated, not rejected. It's time for a school that focuses not only on academic achievement, but also on the personal and social development of its children. This is the only way to raise truly empathetic future adults that may one day change the world.
