For a child below 6, curriculum comprises the environment which in turn means the tools that we offer the child to learn. It is essential that a young child gets daily experience with learning aids which have specific usage, derived from the curriculum.
All areas of work for the child,both internal and external have been planned with extreme care to facilitate self-learning, and implement the objectives set in the curriculum.
We believe preschool education should give as much exposure as possible to the child in all areas of development. Appropriate stimulus is the key to early learning. Hence, the activities have been designed keeping the child in mind and ensuring there is “directional” play all the time. It would involve:
- Individual learning with materials
- Small group activities in art, language and gross motor skills
- Learning through a thematic approach
- Occasional support learning through role plays, presentations, story telling
- Field trips
- Project based learning for older children
- Cultural celebrations
We believe the child’s home environment plays a very important role in early learning and shaping the child’s personality. Keeping this in mind, we will have several parent feedback sessions and guidelines that can be followed in the house to ensure that the school and home together foster the child’s development.
Development in early years happens at a phenomenal speed and is constantly varying. Hence,assessment in early years has to be a continuous process. We have a system that constantly checks on the child's progress and helps us keep updates and records about the child more efficiently. This helps us share information with parents also on a regular basis. Continuous assessment keeps the teachers completely keyed in with the progress of the child which enables us to keep challenging the child and hence we can avoid a situation where the child is bored or has lost interest.
Our staff is trained to ensure that the curriculum objectives for each child are met consistently without creating any disturbance in the child’s work or thought process. They are trained to facilitate learning , observe, record and assess on a daily basis. We have an appropriate student - teacher ratio to ensure that every child's needs are met without making him excessively dependent on an adult for learning.
Safety and Hygiene: Learning cannot be accomplished if the child does not get a safe and hygienic environment. We pride ourselves in adopting the best practices regarding safety and hygiene. High quality disinfectants and cleaners are used daily to clean the entire school. Safe practices include extensive use of technology and web access of our CCTV network to parents, as requested.
