Preschool education is not just about art, music, dance, fun and fantasy.
Develop independence, creativity by providing the child with sufficient opportunities for self expression and active exploration, investigation and experimentation.
A good preschool program ensures setting comprehensive learning objectives and having a structured way to achieve these goals in the child considering that every child is special, different and an individual in his/her own right. Cheerful Hearts believes in positive method of discipline and establishes consistent and appropriate limits to help children function in their world. A quality preschool program revolves around the child. The 4 major components that are instrumental in shaping the learning of the child in school are
The Curriculum & Methodology
The Learning Tools Offered To The Child
The Teachers Who Facilitate Learning
We are tightly integrating these 4 components in a way that will have the most beneficial impact on the development of the child. The core philosophy inspired by the Montessori method drives the curriculum, the curriculum is the foundation for the tools / materials used in the preschool. Each material has been designed and manufactured keeping in mind the curriculum objectives and the philosophy. The teachers have been trained intensively on the philosophy, curriculum and the materials.
The wider range of possibility we offer children the more intense will be their motivation and richer their experiences.
To help children communicate with the world using all their potential strength and languages and to overcome any obstacle presented by our culture.
A child with a purpose knowing what he wants to do next and is able to do it is the happiest. Out of this joy comes self confidence & willingness to work. If such a child is equipped with the right tools, there is no stopping his way to excellence. Research proves that Early Education is critical because:
Brain development is most rapid in the early years
75% of neural connectivity is complete by the age of 7
When the quality of stimulation is deficient, child development is seriously affected.
Early years (2 to 6) are a unique stage of phenomenal brain development and learning in a child. The capacity to absorb concepts and learn is highest during this phase. Hence it is important to expose the child to a structured environment which will provide adequate and appropriate stimulus for learning. Every child has an inherent nature and intelligence that is peculiar to him. This varies from child to child and is the most important factor to consider when the child comes to school.
Curriculum is the set of experiences, activities and events, direct or indirect which occur in an environment specially planned to foster children’s learning and development. In simple terms, Curriculum is a plan for learning.
Our curriculum is a comprehensive child-centric curriculum that comes with set objectives in all major areas of development. It is related to the child’s developmental readiness, interests, questions, style of learning and the cultural context in which the child finds himself.
For a child below 6, curriculum comprises the environment which in turn means the tools that we offer the child to learn. It is essential that a young child gets daily experience with learning aids which have specific usage, derived from the curriculum.
All areas of work for the child, both internal and external have been planned with extreme care to facilitate self learning, and implement the objectives set in the curriculum.
