Curriculum

The Shishu Pahel Paddhati© at the Early Childhood Care and Education (ECCE) level, is a well-researched methodology developed by AKES,I. Based on the High-Scope international curriculum, it has been adapted to local needs.

Pre-Primary

Our Early Childhood Development Programme (ECD) provides a safe and nurturing learning environment for young learners, while enriching the physical, social, emotional and intellectual development of your child.

It comprises of Nursery, Junior K.G and Senior K.G. and is based on the principle that the early years are the most critical for a child’s growth and development. Neuroscientific research suggests that 90% of brain development occurs during the first five years of a child’s life. Additionally, young children learn best in the context of appropriate sensory inputs as well as stable and supportive relationships and interactions. The early years also build the foundations for thinking, language, vision and behavioural attitudes.

Our teacher-student Ratio is 1:12 in pre-primary.

Our Learning Environment

A happy, safe and engaging learning space has been designed to provide an enriching environment for young learners:

  • Indoor and outdoor spaces promote active learning
  • Materials are logical and tactile to build autonomy and initiative in children
  • Furniture is ergonomic and safe
  • Classroom spaces are aesthetic, uncluttered and organized

Our Curriculum

Our curriculum is based on contemporary research and principles of early childhood development. It is developmentally appropriate, integrated, play-led and ensures stimulating experiences across different domains to address the needs of the child.


Primary

Our Child-centred, experiential learning approach in the Early Years continues as a strand through the Primary years. The natural curiosity and creativity of a child is nurtured, allowing children to investigate their environment create meaning for themselves.
