Early Childhood Centre
Our “Kiducation Curriculum” promotes holistic learning that develops all 7 essential areas of learning. The goal of our curriculum is to promote a personalized and differentiated early childhood education for children aged 2 to 6 years of age.
Early Years Age Groups for the session starting in April / June:
Playgroup – 2 years
Nursery – 3 years
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 year’s 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 Nursery class ensures a smooth transition to the more structured and skill-driven learning expectations of the kindergarten years.
Kindergarten age Groups for the session starting in April / June:
Junior Kindergarten – 4 years
Senior Kindergarten – 5 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.
Daycare is fast emerging as the need for working parents. With both parents away from home the entire day, the child is either left with a helper at home or in a crèche. In both cases, quality care is not available for the child. A crèche will look after the eating and sleeping needs of the child but not enough care is taken about the emotional or social development. When the child is left with the helper at home, he/she watches TV or whiles away his/her time and more often than not his language development, social development and emotional development suffers because of the lack of proper care.
Therefore, we also offer a Daycare facility in many of our Podar Jumbo Kids centers so children can learn and grow in a well-researched manner at their home away from home.
Podar Jumbo kids Daycare has adopted the unique “moving space concept.” The child has different spaces for every activity.
