Skill Based Learning – Targeting overall development as per Bloom’s Taxonomy and Multiple Intelligence Concepts
Every class, group and child is unique and has different needs at different levels. We believe in a curriculum that matches abilities to skills that preschoolers need which are age appropriate and form the basis for later learning and school success. The targeted skills at the Pre Primary level is broadly divided into 8 categories which are :-
GROSS MOTOR SKILLS - are those that involve control and coordination of larger muscles of the body.
FINE MOTOR SKILLS - involve the finer muscles particularly of the eye and hands / fingers.
MATHEMATICS / COGNITIVE DEVELOPMENT - is the development of the the mental processes or skills that enables an individual to get to know the environment.
SCIENCE CONCEPTS - are the processes that enable the children to apply the newly acquired concepts, expand existing concepts, and develop new ones.
LIFE SKILLS - Life skills is a part of the “Curriculum" of learning experiences.
SOCIO-EMOTIONAL DEVELOPMENT - Social and emotional development are inter linked. Social development is the development of behaviour and characteristics that help the children adjust to their social environment and emotional development provides the base for social development.
MUSIC SKILLS - is learning about the rhymes and following the rhythm.
ART EXPRESSIONS - also indicate being creative.
In addition to the above, PROKIDS also has theme based learning to sensitize the kids to awareness of self, society and co-spiritual values.
Broadly, The Curriculum Addresses:
