Curriculum Activities

Curriculum is the most vital aspect of any preschool.In a preschool where children come in during their most important years of learning, a curriculum has to be designed with utmost care and perfection so that it caters to all areas of development. A curriculum that is designed well will ensure that the child develops skills and knowledge that are not only applied in the classroom, but in life as well. It has to make the child ready to face the challenges that he/she may face into their further studies, as well as facing challenges while growing up in society.
We have designed an integratedcurriculum inspired by different Preschool Philosophies like :
  • Montessori: A philosophy where children of different age group work together with a lot of scientifically crafted material with self-directing control and conceptually designed material to cater each child’s developmental needs. It attempts to develop children physically, socially, emotionally and cognitively.

  • Steiner Waldorf: A philosophy where play-based approach is characterized by a predictable structure, providing children with a dependable routine, such as certain days of the week for set activities like baking or gardening. There is an emphasis on creative learning, reading, singing, acting, etc. It’s great for children who want that predictability, while not suppressing creativity.

  • Reggio Emilia:This approach is known for it's Collaborative and Interaction focus, which many preschool programs have borrowed. Children are viewed as competent, curious, full of knowledge, potential, and interested in connecting to the world around them.

  • High Scope: A collaborative approach to child-learning. Children learn best through hands-on experiences with people, materials, events, and ideas.

  • Bank Street: Thisapproach stresses the importance of materials in the classroom and views the teacher as a “facilitator of learning.” This method aims to help children make sense of the world around them by studying multiple aspects of social studies.

  • Creative Curriculum: This approach provides teachers with textbooks and written materials that outline a child-centred approach. It as a research-based system that is being used in an increasing numbers of preschool programs

Context plays a crucial role in the design of any curriculum. Though all the above mentioned philosophies are great on their own, they have been developed at various times, and at various places where the social, environmental, and economic factors varied a lot from our own. We need to adapt, incorporate, and develop the advantages of all the various approaches to suit our needs and environment. By doing this, we have developed a curriculum that is child-centric in its approach, and it ensuresan all-round development of the child within the context of our current environment. We strive to make sure that every child present in our classroom is interested, engaged, and fully understands and achieves the intended learning outcomes. Our curriculum is unique, and will only be found at our preschools.
