Development in early years happens at a phenomenal speed and is constantly varying. Hence, assessment in early years has to be a continuous process. We have a system that constantly checks on the child's progress and helps us keep updates and records about the child more efficiently. This helps us share information with parents also on a regular basis. Constant assessment keeps the teachers completely keyed in with the progress of the child which enables us to keep challenging the child and hence we can avoid a situation where the child is bored or has lost interest.
In order to meet our curriculum objectives, we take the children through a structured learning program for 4 years, which involves a lot of structured and focused activities. No activity in the school is meaningless or done without a clear cut objective and outcome for the child.
In the 2 to 4 years category, we begin with fine motor and practical life skills. English is introduced with phonetics. Mathematics is introduced with materials that help the child comprehend this very abstract area. There are also a variety of activities that aid cognitive development and logical thinking.
In the 4 to 6 age group, children are taken through a program that covers fairly complex areas of language, mathematics, geography, history and science in a manner that will help them explore, discover and understand the fundamentals.
