Our kindergarten programs recognize that children will soon be entering schools that have a range of expectations for a child’s social and academic performance. We provide a comprehensive learning-centred approach that challenges children and supports every area of development. We recognize the need for directed, sequential instruction to ensure that children enter first grade with the skills and knowledge expected of them in the school that they will attend.
The kindergarten curriculum is adapted to expectations of local CBSE and ICSE schools. Each of the kindergarten learning centres develops expectations and practices in concert with the local schools that the children will be attending. At the same time, the curriculum in every kindergarten homebase builds off the child’s knowledge base and skills, learning style, and interests. There is a clear emphasis on the development of strong language, math, and science skills. Important “school skills” of listening carefully, following through on a sequence of tasks, and working cooperatively are reinforced.
SEED’s kindergarten program extends from a planned learning environment and incorporates language, math, science, general knowledge and awareness about our world, and creative thinking, offering each child a kindergarten program for learning designed for future academic success.
