Since 2018, we are combining our Montessori Curriculum with Reggio Emilia approach. Reggio Emilia is a child-led learning where we document every progress made by the students and observe students in their journey of learning.
We believe in listening deeply to our children and trusting them with the time and space they need to thrive, fostering curiosity and exploration!
Our educational approach for Early Childhood Education:
- Higher Order Thinking
Following the children’s thoughts and inquiries and engaging in open-ended, child-led projects and activities to develop higher order thinking and collaboration.
Making Learning Visible
Respecting child’s thoughts and ideas and documenting them as a part of our efforts to make their learning process visible; using this documentation for research by the teachers.
Encouraging the various expressive languages of children such as art, music, dance, writing, drawings, building and believing in the various creative expressions of early childhood.
Natural Spaces and Outdoors
Providing children time and contexts for outdoor play and to be one with the natural surroundings and recognizing this as a fundamental need for their emotional and physical well-being.
Enabling conducive environments which would encourage children to use their senses to discover and construct knowledge.
Recognizing that children need hands-on learning experiences which are meaningful to them and preparing environments for them to develop into independent and capable human beings.
The International Early Years Curriculum (IEYC) was introduced in 2020 to improve our curriculum and to meet the needs of our children at such a crucial stage of development. The IEYC uses international best practices, holistic enquiry and play-based approaches that cover all curriculum areas including personal, social and emotional development.
In the IEYC, children and teachers collaborate to co-create meaningful experiences that build upon and make links to previous learning and development.
Units of Learning
All 18 IEYC unit of learning has been carefully designed around a central theme, holistically linking all four Learning Strands to relevant and engaging activities that can be adapted and extended to meet individual needs.
Reflective Practices for Improving Learning
Reflective Practices for Improving Learning consists of three key actions – Capturing, Interpreting and Responding. These enable IEYC practitioners to incrementally assess a child's progress.
