Your child is a natural learner, investigator and thinker.
We have a specially designed program that caters to every age and every stage that falls within the preschool spectrum. It consists of wide range of concepts, experiences, and materials designed to adapt to the developmental needs of the children. This exciting new program is based on the very best research and teaching techniques used worldwide to educate young children. The program is a unique blend of brain-based research and creative teaching techniques that not only teach your children, but actually inspire them to learn. So we have a unique teaching methodology called TABS
( Teaching aid based brain stimulation ).
A unique teaching methodology, where children learn through positive hands -on experiences with non-toxic materials or teaching aids which optimize the development of brain of each child and lay foundation for lifelong learning and behavior.
Our program uses theory of Montessori ,Multiple Intelligence & International Baccalaureate ( IB ) as a curriculum framework. These theories emphasize the development of skills with freedom of choice and movement appropriate to children`s abilities.
Our job is to provide the materials and activities that support and enhance your child’s ability to learn with joy.
Our program uses theory of Montessori , Multiple Intelligence & International l Baccalaureate ( IB ) as a curriculum framework. Montessori is Child-directed active learning methodology, as it believes that child is a natural learner, investigator and thinker. It is designed to take full advantage of the children’s desire to learn and their unique ability to develop their own capabilities. Multiple intelligences theory propounds that human beings have different intelligences that include verbal-linguistic, logical-mathematical, visual-spatial, bodily -kinesthetic, musical, interpersonal, naturalist and intrapersonal intelligences. This is why children learn in different ways and at different paces.
AT CHILDREN’S CASTLE WE FOCUS BROADLY ON FIVE AREAS OF LEARNING NAMELY:
Cognitive development involves the way children think, develop understanding about the world, and use what they learn to reason and solve problems. They use all their senses and motor skills actively to construct their own understandings about the people and objects in their environments
- Sensory Exploration and Discovery
- Concept Development and Memory
- Creative Expression
- Personal Social and Emotional:
Young Children’s social-emotional development involves the way they feel about themselves, their understanding of feelings, their ability to regulate emotions and express them appropriately, and their capacity for building relationships with others.
- Developing a Sense of Self
- Developing a Sense of Self with Others
- Learning About Feelings
- Physical Development:
Physical development is the result of interaction of genetics, experience, nutrition, care, play, and exercise Changes in Body: Age 2 to 6 is a time of rapid physical growth, Bodies become longer, more slender, Bones harden, Brain Development-Neural impulses become faster and more precise.This Progressive neuromuscular development brings remarkable changes in the Motor area.
- Gross Motor Skills
- Require the use of large muscle groups to perform tasks like walking, balancing, crawling.
- The skill required is not extensive and therefore are usually associated with continuous tasks.
- Much of the development of these skills occurs during early childhood.
- Fine Motor Skills
- Require the use of smaller muscle groups to perform tasks that are precise in nature like Grasping, Fastening, Tying knots, open / close lid of bottles, cutting scissors.
- Discrete tasks usually require more fine motor skill than gross motor skills
- Language and communication:
To be able to achieve this they need to be helped and guided to achieve certain goals like develop fluency, ability to speak, Correct usage of words, express themselves with appropriate emotions, to be able to name, classify and describe to organize their thoughts etc.
Children’s responses to what they see, hear and experience through their senses are individual and the way they represent their experiences is unique and valuable.
Creativity means to children
- Taking risks
- Making connections
- Explorations of their own ideas,
- Expressing them through movement,
- Making and transforming things using media and materials
- The principles of our Curriculum
- Aim at holistic development
- Meaningful and realistic
- Age appropriate planning
- Must be more concrete than abstract (sensorial)
- Parental involvement is critical
The classroom is organized to give children plenty of space to move around, to work on the floor and on tabletops, individually and in smaller and large groups.
Each group is offered exciting developmentally appropriate experiences that promote social, emotional, physical, intellectual and creative growth.
We maintain appropriate teacher to student ratio to ensure quality interaction with children.
Resources are well organized and labelled so that children know here to find what they need promoting independence , adults can spend more time expanding children´s learning interests, helping them to make progress further.
We offer a diverse range of play activities that stimulate the senses, provide opportunities for creativity, develop fine and gross motor skills, as well as develop critical thinking skills. This child-centred approach means our children become confident learners who are engaged in the world around them, whilst their inquisitiveness motivates them to learn. We then help them to make sense of this knowledge and apply it to real-life situations.
Our teaching and learning strategy provides hands-on experiences and activities that stimulate children’s growth in their interests and curiosity whilst working
Children work in team’s right from the beginning. Doing projects in teams not only requires a group to work together, but very importantly, promotes and stimulates the development of active communication skills. We include an Interactive thinking approach throughout our curriculum. Here, children learn and are motivated to make connections from stories, facts, and learning activities – which can be linked to their daily lives or even used to create new knowledge. We also encourage children to “think laterally” where appropriate in order to generate creative solutions by looking at things from multiple perspectives.
We have a team of highly qualified teachers who are trained to apply the best techniques in early childhood education within a nurturing environment.
Teachers here are dedicated in providing children with an exciting play and learning environment as a solid basis for their future educational development and excelling in their interest field.
Extra Curricular Activities
We will take your child on field trips at regular intervals. The school will inform parents about the field trip and related activities much in advance and also seek their permission. It will be parents’ discretion to allow the child to field trip or not. However, we encourage the parents to send their tots to the field activities so that they have great learning and also enriching experience.
