Academic Curriculum

Crayon Street Preschool’s “Eclectic” curriculum is research based and inspired by the best practices in Early Childhood Education from around the globe. We have also integrated the philosophies of the world’s renowned educationists including Montessori, Reggio Emilia, Dewey, Waldorf and Howard Gardner. The curriculum is age appropriate and goes at the pace of the child. The curriculum is designed so as to encourage curiosity, exploration and discover new things in a safe, friendly, warm, lively and stimulating environment. The curriculum is mapped with the National Curriculum Framework as laid by NCERT.

What does our Eclectic Curriculum offer

Phonetic way of teaching is used when it comes to learning of letters. We introduce the beginning as well as the ending sounds of letters and vowels and consonants are taught in groups. Kids at Crayon Street Preschool are equipped to read at a very early stage owing to the progressive method of learning letters and their sounds. In mathematics, we go beyond rote counting of numbers by promotimg number recognition and one to one correspondence of number to their quantity. Pre-writing skills are introduced between the age group of 2 and 3 yrs so that kids are able to pick up writing easily. The curriculum helps the kids to have a smooth transition from home to Preschool and later from Preschool to formal school.

Our 7Cs Rainbow Approach

Crayon Street Preschool follows a “7Cs Rainbow Approach” to learning. Our progressive approach stimulates confidence, agility, worldly information, curiosity, sensitivity towards environment and relationships, kindness, logical thinking, problem-solving and above all FUN.

Our Child assessment model

Our evaluation metrics and comprehensive assessment tool is designed to provide parents with the child’s detailed progress. In addition to this, there is one-on-one feedback session for parents on a monthly basis.

We use on-going assessment tools in the form of Anecdotal records (Child Observation records) and portfolio methods to share minute details about the child’s interests, interaction, participation, communication, creativity and cognitive, motor, language and numeracy skills. Anecdotal records are maintained for each child by the educator. It helps gauge developmental milestones achieved at regular intervals which are documented and shared with parents monthly. Anecdotal record allows the educator to understand details like child’s behaviour, conversation between peers etc. This helps in customising and strategising activities to achieve individual learning outcomes.

The child is monitored closely and worked upon for any developmental delays. The assessment system is directly aligned with curriculum goals.
