Kindergarten Curriculum And Assessment

Kindergarten Curriculum 2019-20

Kindergarten 1: 4-5 years
Kindergarten 2: 5-6 years
The Kindergarten curriculum is based on age specific learning goals and has been designed keeping in view the educational trends and the needs of the children. A thematic approach is adopted to foster learning across the curriculum, placing an emphasis on developing key skills. It is planned across different areas of learning, facilitating the children to develop at their own space through differentiated and collaborative learning. It is child oriented, focusing on play and the individual personality. We firmly believe that the children need to be happy if they are to learn. Our curriculum provides opportunity for playing & exploring, active learning and thinking creatively. Enriched programmes to stimulate children’s’ interest are carefully planned and supported. The children are exposed to a variety of exciting and positive experiences and hands-on activities which enables them to explore and enliven their interest. They are encouraged to think, find things and talk about them.

The integration of all the areas of learning provides ample opportunities for children to make connections between their experiences. Keeping the international standards in mind the curriculum for our little learners is based on early learning goals that need to be attained by the end of Kindergarten. This assessment pattern has been adapted successfully to provide the necessary range and balance. The curriculum framework gives a detailed view of the concepts that are being covered in all the seven areas of teaching:

 

  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development
  • Communication and Language
  • Literacy
  • Mathematics
  • Understanding the World
  • Physical Development
  • Art and design

Areas like Personal & Social Development, Art & Design are integrated in the main areas like Literacy, Mathematics and Understanding the World.
