The Early Years (EY) programme at Sahasra Kids zone comprises of Pre-Primary, Lower Kindergarten (LKG) and Upper Kindergarten (UKG). The curriculum is developed around the International Cambridge Primary Years Programme and Montessori. It prepares the little ones by extending their learning through group activities and hands-on work through an inquiry based approach. These crucial years are spent helping the children improve their self-confidence and remain motivated.
We believe that discipline is a value and should become a way of life. One cannot become a leader or seek excellence unless one is self-disciplined. Our idea of discipline is not rules and regulations which are imposed externally on a child. Discipline is all about self-management. We avoid all corporal punishment and even harsh reproof. Self-discipline is inculcated by embedding sound traditional values and social sensitivities. Small sized classes with a teacher-taught ratio as low as 1:12 ensures individual attention and personal care.
Teachers are warm and encouraging, engaging students to make learning their own. Children between the ages of 1.8 years and 5.5 years are welcome to begin their learning adventure at our school.
Six boards of learning
For our tiny tots there are six broad areas of learning which are:Personal, social and emotional development: Your child will learn to be self confident, take an interest in their peers, know what their own needs are, tell the difference between right and wrong.
Communication, language and literacy:
Your child will learn to talk confidently and clearly, enjoying stories, songs and poems, hearing and saying sounds and linking them to the alphabet. They will read and write some familiar words and learn to use a pencil.
Your child will develop an understanding of mathematics through stories, songs, games and imaginative play. They will become comfortable with numbers and with ideas such as 'heavier than' and 'bigger'. They will be aware of shape and space.
Knowledge and understanding of the world:
Your child will explore and find out about the world around them, asking questions about it. They will build with different materials, know about everyday technology and learn what it is used for. They will find out about past events in their lives and their families' lives. They will find out about different cultures and beliefs.
Your child will learn to move confidently, controlling body movement and handling equipment.
Your child will explore colours and shapes, trying out dance, making things, telling stories and making music.
All of this is done through play and by using less formal teaching methods.
