The Early years Program at Podar Jumbo Kids promotes age-appropriate, holistic development focusing on nurturing each child’s communication and language skill, creative expression and physical, self and social development. Brain stimulation is at its peak at this age and thus activities that nurture brain development are implemented in age and developmentally appropriate ways through play, language and exploration activities.
Activities are designed to help the Early years children learn by making sense of things and people around them, investigate the world, form relationships and engage in active social interactions. Early years learning in the Playschool and Nursery class ensures a smooth transition to the more structured and skill-driven learning expectations of the kindergarten years.
In the Kindergarten groups, the prime focus of our curriculum now revolves around the emergent strategies of the early years and the purposeful acquisition and understanding of content, skills and concepts in literacy, numeracy and knowledge and understanding of the world.
Our Kindergarten curriculum nurtures and supports children’s interest, curiosity and their natural quest for knowledge; leading to developing skills of problem solving, inquiry, investigation, discovery and active hands-on explorations. In our kindergarten curriculum, even though learning is based on play and exploration, it is very well structured and integrated across multiple disciplines of language, math, science, writing and technology. This is done to meet expectations for holistic goals, development of life skills, dispositions and attitudes, as well as academic achievements.
