The meaning of curriculum is all the experiences, activities and events, whether direct or indirect which occur in an environment specially planned to foster children’s learning and development. In simple term Curriculum is a plan for learning. Our early childhood curriculum has incorporated best practices from theories of Multiple Intelligence, methodology of Dr. Maria Montessori and keeping in mind Indian academic and cultural standards. Our Curriculum is appropriately related to the child’s developmental readiness, interests, questions, style of learning and the cultural context in which the child finds himself/herself.
Our Learning and Development methodology takes into account a child’s individual needs, their interests and choices, as well as encouraging the involvement of parents. Planning will be based on the early years foundation stage program, working towards the early learning goals which covers the following five areas of learning – Cognitive, Creative, Language, Personality and Sensomotor. Broadly, our goals and objectives are:
1. To use Children’s interest as a basis for activities.
2. Provision for individual and group participation.
3. Ensure holistic development.
4. An interest and awareness about nature and world around them is stimulated and sustained.
5. Scope for creativity and new discoveries.
6. An opportunity to develop appropriate communication skills and language development.
Develop personal social and emotional skills, independence and age appropriate self-help skills
At INVEGENIUS, we have a “Individual in a Group” concept. We believe in engaging every child and enabling participation. The cornerstone of our approach is respect for each child. Our teachers observe every child on a continuous basis and tailor instructions to suit his/her individual needs.
We incorporate activities to bolster all round development of the child – emotional, physical, cognitive and social. Our educators then assess a child’s knowledge and structure specific learning environments and experiences, which support that child’s progress towards identified goals. These experiences are play-based, hands-on and experiential in nature. They ensure deeper enjoyment with an understanding of concepts and ideas.
Each child is observed and assessed individually and their work and progress documented in a special portfolio that is shared with the parent, allowing them to be a part of their child’s life at school.
