A child’s first school experience plays a vital role in setting the child’s approach to learning. Children need to feel safe and have classrooms that foster a tone that allows even the quietest and most sensitive child an equal opportunity to interact with teachers, attendants and fellow students. Therefore, we focus on learning through experience, interaction and inquiry during early childhood. The teacher-students ratio is essential in giving each child a warm and nurturing touch.
The Kindergarten Programme at Chitkara International School has been conceived keeping in mind, Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and National Education Policy (NEP) 2020. The Kindergarten programme is designed in accordance with the National Education Policy’s 5+3+3+4 system. The same ensures that structured and progressive learning in English, Mathematics, Science, Social Science, and Art is continuous, varied, and substantial. Music, Dance, Sports, Health and Well Being, Life Skills, Values, etc., have also been integrated into the curriculum. The particular focus is on imparting values so that our children realise the importance of friends, family, community and society. We believe in creating scientists, scholars, intellectuals, engineers, researchers, and creative minds for the future. We encourage children to explore their environment and optimise their learning using multiple skills, which include speaking, singing, movement, drawing, painting, writing, building, designing, collage, dramatics and music.
A significant part of a child’s language development, vocabulary building, concept formation and cognitive development happens during the formative years. At Chitkara International School, the centrifugal point of the curriculum is research and has evolved after years of expertise. The curriculum is not merely restricted to colouring or storytelling and playing; its periphery extends to promote research aptitude in the students.
Keeping in mind the holistic growth of the students’ sports, games, physical fitness activities, and yoga asanas are introduced and systematically followed to develop team-building skills and achieve physical fitness.
The environment is considered the “third teacher”; therefore, great attention is given to the look and feel of the classroom. Classrooms are vibrant, theme-based and colourful centres of happy activity with skilfully planned learning walkways. Thus, this innovative approach establishes Chitkara International School as the best Kindergarten.
