A happy beginning in the journey of learning helps to sustain the interest in learning and makes the process of being a life-long learner a pleasurable activity.
It is this principle of life which is the driving force behind how children learn at “Curious Kids”. We believe that along with “What” they learn, and “Why” they learn, “How” they learn determines their individual path of learning.
With this endeavor, Play has been chosen as the best methodology, as play activities are essential to healthy development for children and adolescents. Research shows that 75% of brain development occurs after birth. The activities engaged in by children both stimulate and influence the pattern of the connections made between the nerve cells.
This process influences the development of fine and gross motor skills, language, socialization, personal awareness, emotional well-being, creativity, problem solving and learning ability.
The most important role that play can have is to help children to be active, make choices and practice actions to mastery. If play is the work of the child, toys are the tools. Through toys, children learn about their world, themselves, and others. Toys teach children to:
Figure out how things work
Pick up new ideas
Build muscle control and strength
Use their imagination
Learn to cooperate with others
Play content should come from the child’s own imagination and experiences. Using play as the medium to achieve the learning goals of the children, “Curious Kids” has formulated a smooth progression across the age-appropriate levels as:
Toddlers [Age – 2 years – 3 years]
Nursery [Age – 3 years – 4 years]
Junior Kindergarten [Age –4 years – 5 years]
Senior Kindergarten [Age – 5 years – 6 years]
Although set in a playful environment, the breadth and balance of the academics is always the focal point of “Curious Kids” to ensure smooth transition for these children into primary schools.
