Imagine teachers, child experts, and parents coming together with programmers, artists, writers, and ideamakers to build a system of child development that’s never been seen before.
At Lipa, that’s exactly what we’ve done: we’ve created an all-around system of both digital and physical products that sends children and their parents on a mutual adventure of growth and exploration.
Here you can find out more about each of our 8 Core Curricula, as well as all the products that make up our unique system.
Covers 8 Learning Areas
A healthy lifestyle is an active approach to maintaining and improving our health. The key element is our choice of daily habits: healthy eating, the importance of proper physical exercise, biorhythm and cyclic activities, mental health and relaxation, the importance of sleep, managing stress, and understanding emotions. We also define the family as a stable environment that is important for a child's healthy development and represents a space with set rules and boundaries. Lastly, the healthy lifestyle curriculum addresses understanding one's own body, i.e. body care and sex education.
Environmentalism develops a positive attitude towards nature; children learn to appreciate diversity and the many wonders of nature. We encourage children’s sense of excitement about exploring their world, like watching animals and plants grow, exploring natural objects with magnifying glasses, and conducting simple experiments. Children will realize that we all are responsible for our environment and all living things, and that they can help protect the world. Environmentalism teaches energy and water conservation, recycling and reusing, and conceptualizing different solutions to reducing water and energy waste in daily life.
The area of autonomy covers the qualities of an individual relating to governing himself/herself, and viewing decision-making processes from a realistic (information-based) perspective. It is closely interconnected with the area of socio-emotional development and also completes the area of academic skills. Autonomy overlaps across each strictly framed academic field, and is vital to building overall life competencies. The autonomy area includes skills like memory, attention/concentration, learning motivation, responsibility, creativity, logical thinking, and spatial imagination.
There are five major areas in emotional education: emotional awareness, emotional regulation, emotional autonomy, social competence, and life skills for wellness. The objectives of emotional education include: improving one’s understanding of emotions, identifying the emotions of others, naming the emotions correctly, developing the ability to regulate one's emotions, raising the threshold of tolerance to frustration, preventing the harmful effects of negative emotions, developing the ability to generate positive emotions, developing self-motivation, and adopting a positive attitude towards life. Acquiring emotional competency encourages social and interpersonal relationships, facilitates positive conflict resolution, promotes physical and mental health, and also helps to improve academic performance.
Gradually, children acquire all necessary physical abilities. Physical development is based mainly on the gross and fine motor skills, a child exhibits, as well as psychomotoric development. Knowing these, we can estimate any given child’s age and scope of capabilities. Various forms of physical activity and exercise enhance these capabilities and affix motor experiences as a stable part of everyday life. As an important part of physical development we consider laterality, i.e. the interconnection of the left and right brain hemispheres. The development of these areas forms a basis for a highquality, healthy lifestyle.
Hygiene & Safety
Hygiene covers the most effective ways we use to protect ourselves and others from illnesses. It includes regular washing, and proper food preparation, protection, and storage. Hygiene and safety also cover handling infections and being cautious about illnesses. Learning important behaviors for living in a safe environment is also included in this area. Children need help learning how to protect themselves against abduction and exploitation, and our safety curriculum also covers the strategies a parent or teacher can use to teach children how to protect themselves and seek help in potentially dangerous situations.
The area of academics covers the qualities of an individual directly relating to academic achievement. These qualities arise from formal school education, and mainly represent the subjects taught in schools. They cover fields such as mathematics, language, science, and arts. Chemistry, physics, biology and geography comprise sciences. Arts cover information expressed through sensory perception, built on theater and drama, ballet, creative arts, music, etc. History, literature, civic education, and foreign languages represent the Arts in purely academic achievement.
History & Culture
The areas of History and Culture help expand children’s minds in regards to the wider world. History teaches the concept of time (past, present, and future), the significance of historical eras, events that have shaped the present, and who were the key people involved in those events. When children learn about Culture, they begin to understand social diversity, traditions, mythology, and anthropology, which instills curiosity and respect for others. The Culture curriculum also includes philosophical questions regarding life and death, ethics, morality, and religion.
