EARLY CHILDHOOD EDUCATION


Early Childhood Education is not just about art, music, dance, fun and fantasy. A good Early Childhood Education Program ensures that there are tangible and intangible learning objectives, and has a clear methodology to ensure these objectives are achieved.


 Every child is special, different and an individual in his/her own right. Between the age of 2 and 6, they develop and evolve very fast with very different skill sets at different stages. We must keep pace with their changing needs.


ECE is a child oriented programme that follows the play way and activity based learning approach and aim at providing a stimulating play environment for intellectual, language, social, emotional and physical development of the child. The approach and methodology is practiced for activities in the following domains of development:

PHYSICAL & MOTOR DEVELOPMENT 
The best way to bring up children is by letting them be themselves. The colourful, child friendly, spacious environment of Mother's Pride gives opportunity to children to play, run around and enjoy their childhood. Activities like aerobics and taekwondo help the health of mind and body. Gross and fine motor skills are developed through special aids and tools.

COGNITIVE DEVELOPMENT 
The IQ of a child just doesn't depend on the genes alone, but the opportunities he/she gets to use his mind. Children are given opportunities to learn how to be analytical so that they can successfully deal with life situations. Special emphasis is laid on skills like development of senses, puzzle and tower making, problem solving, etc.

LANGUAGE DEVELOPMENT 
What good is knowledge that cannot be expressed! Novel rhymes, innovative ways of storytelling, picture reading, gripping dramatization, opportunities and encouragement for free and structured conversation enhance the communication and presentation skills of our children.

SOCIO – EMOTIONAL DEVELOPMENT The most important ingredient in the recipe of success is the ability to get along with people and the society. Mother's Pride provides the right kind of peer group which forms the learning ground for the child about right behaviour, friendship, sharing.

Confidence, leadership quality, sense of independence, care towards environment, society and respect for traditional values is instilled through celebration of events, stage exposure, nature walks and role plays, and many other ways.

DEVELOPMENT OF CREATIVE EXPRESSION 
Each child has inborn creativity. All we need to do is give them encouragement and opportunities. We provide children with a stimulating environment where they can discover their talents like dancing, art and craft, music, clay moulding etc.

 A quality Early Childhood Education Program revolves around the child. The 4 major components that are instrumental in shaping the learning of the child in school are  

    • the philosophy


    • the curriculum and methodology


    • the learning tools offered to the child


    • the teachers who facilitate learning


Curriculum is the set of experiences, activities and events, direct or indirect which occur in an environment specially planned to foster children's learning and development. In simple terms, Curriculum is a plan for learning.


Our curriculum is a comprehensive child-centric curriculum that comes with set objectives in all major areas of development. It is related to the child's developmental readiness, interests, questions, style of learning and the cultural context in which the child finds himself.
