The earlier and more appropriate children start learning a new language, the faster and better they learn it without damaging their mother tongue. At Eureka, children learn the other language in the way they learned their mother tongue, i.e. by naturally and unconsciously taking it up from the language environment and communication situations. A child aged 2-6 is not yet ready to learn grammar rules but is best able to memorize what is related to personal experience and learn languages by actively practising, playing, communicating, and using a language. We are convinced that children who know more than one language have better reading, writing, cognitive, intellectual skills and better memory, so they do better in higher grades.

- 4. Critical thinking and problem solving
At Eureka, we spend much time exploring the environment around us. We are convinced that interesting and inclusive knowledge of the world develops a child’s ingenuity, which is necessary for a successful life. We encourage our children to explore the environment curiously and proactively by using five senses: sight, hearing, smell, taste, and touch. We also pay much attention to the knowledge of technologies and digital literacy which provides boundless spaces to discover the world. Every day is full of discoveries!
At Eureka, we pay special attention to introducing children to numbers and shapes, improving numeracy skills, and the ability to compare sizes, weights, and amounts. We develop thinking through solving puzzles and logic problems as well as number-based research. At Eureka, we improve children’s logical thinking and numeracy skills by invoking chess and other games.
We develop Eureka’s children’s creativity through drawing, dancing, singing, storytelling, design, and the use of various materials, tools, and technologies. With the dynamic content of education, we create conditions for children to test themselves in various activities; we also provide a creativy-friendly environment and teach children to implement their ideas in different ways. For instance, a small drawing can turn into a book, a t-shirt, or even a scenography for a performance. We are convinced that every child is a great creator, so the challenge for Eureka is to provide the conditions for a child to feel it.
Eureka’s educational methodology encourages a child to think independently and boldly, to come up with new ideas, to look for and find unconventional solutions. Why? How? What? By simulating different situations and employing the information obtained through the model of a reduced world, we combine a child’s thinking algorithms that prompt a child to look for answers, understand solution alternatives and their consequences. We develop children’s ability to deal with problematic situations, and upon leaving our school, they are able to define and achieve the goals that are in line with a minor’s age
