Kindergarten

EYP - Early Years Programme (Playgroup to IK III)

Children begin a lifetime of learning at home. Kindergarten introduces them to the school years and helps to widen their learning horizons. These early years in education involve tremendous growth and learning. Parents and school staff, working together as partners, can help to ensure all children fully develop their potential.
The IB Early Years Programme (EYP) employs the ‘integrated learning’ methodology. Under this, young learners are able to grasp varied concepts through practical application across a range of subjects. For example, they can learn about buoyancy through swimming or about marine ecosystems through augmented reality-based art projects.
We harness the best of globally renowned educational learning models like Kath Murdoch’s Inquiry Cycle, Howard Gardner’s Multiple Intelligence and Benjamin Bloom’s Taxonomy; and introduce the concept of integrated learning throughout a child’s educational graph.
Kindergarten children are energetic, lively, sensitive, curious and creative. They learn best in an active setting, manipulating and playing with material, investigating, observing, experimenting, inquiring, drawing conclusions and interacting with others.
The Wonder Room is where our kindergarteners and Grades I and II students get together to play, create and explore their creative wonder. It is filled with a selection of learning aids, developmental toys, games and books. These help in developing fine and gross motor skills, and also to enhance muscle development. The room is also used to conduct activities related to the ongoing unit of inquiry such as storytelling with puppets, creating your own food plate, etc. through which students develop confidence, communication, self-awareness and self-management skills. It is a critical tool for our young learners to play, discover, learn, and explore.
Activities will engage all the children in meaningful experiences, which will be the foundations for:

  • Reading and Writing
  • Problem Solving
  • Manipulating Materials
  • Speaking and Listening
  • Viewing and Thinking
  • Forming Concepts and Ideas about Numbers

The six areas for children’s learning over the three-year programme are:

  • Personal and Social Development
  • Language
  • Mathematics
  • Science and Technology
  • Health and Physical Activity
  • The Arts

EYP Assessments

  • Assessment is a continuous process which refers to the system in which the quality of a student’s work is judged by various pieces of work during a course and not by one final exam
  • Assessments are based on all the six stages of each inquiry throughout the academic session namely, Tuning In, Finding Out, Sorting Out, Making Connection, Going Further, and Taking Action
  • The assessment tasks are a part of learning engagements in class (Group Discussion, Presentation, Story Telling, Role Plays, Worksheets and Activity Sheets) for EVS for each unit of enquiry
  • Math and English are assessed based on strands namely
    • Data Handling
    • Measurement
    • Shape
    • Pattern and Function
    • Number Concept
    and as per the defined descriptor for each strand
  • For language assessment, there are four strands in English/Hindi/Other language namely
    • Oral language - Listening and Speaking
    • Visual language - Viewing and Presenting
    • Written language - Reading
    • Written language - Writing
    The other components of assessment are Character Profile, Attitudes, Sports Education, Performing Arts, etc.
  • Assessing the Visual Arts helps the facilitators to assess their aesthetic sense, ideas, perceptions and feelings through visual images, sounds, movement, and stories. Assessment is in integration with the on-going unit of inquiry.
  • Assessments on Sports Education allows the students to be assessed on their competency in a variety of motor skills and movement patterns

Asessment Tools
