Most preschools have a set of intentions and a belief based on which the students are taught. Based on these beliefs, teachers use lesson plans and rubrics for assessing student progress.
The nursery curriculum in India takes into account the length of the preschool day. Some preschools run for only a few hours a day, while others (especially in public school settings) operate all day. Some even run longer than a typical school day to cover all the parent’s work hours.
Unlike most early learning programs, The Flintoclass@HOME preschool syllabus in India is child-centric and a culmination of multiple curriculums. It is designed by the Flinto R&D Center. The Center houses child psychologists, game designers, curriculum researchers, pedagogy experts and more!
The child-centric preschool syllabus is a culmination of methodologies including Playway, John Dewey, Waldorf, and Multiple Intelligence, which focuses on communication & language development, literacy, cognitive development, creativity, physical development, social & emotional development and science, social studies and technology.
Let me break this down for you…
The Playway curriculum believes in teaching children concepts through games and play. The curriculum focuses on activity-based learning: Children learn through mental and physical activities which stimulate their skills and self-expression.
The Multiple Intelligences theory is based on encouraging students to develop skills to seek solutions to the problems that arise. The curriculum provides them with ample opportunities that encourage children to think critically and develop analytical thinking.
The Waldorf curriculum style was designed by the Austrian educator, Rudolf Steiner. This curriculum provides students with hands-on, play-based learning in preschools that happens in a home-like setting with predictable routines. A conscious effort is made to keep the children away from electronic devices.
John Dewey’s style of curriculum believes in hands-on learning and experience is the central aspect of education. Problem-solving and applying reflective or critical inquiry to solve the problems is the aim of education.
The Flintoclass@HOME preschool program has taken all of the above curriculums into account making it a well-rounded syllabus for holistic growth.
