“To provide a stimulating and meaningful teaching-learning environment which maximises the inherent potential of each child and equips with the skills of the 21st century, so as to face the world with confidence.”
We, at Learning First!, believe that every child has the desire to learn. But each child needs the right environment for it. One which is age-appropriate yet challenging, meaningful and relevant to the needs of the child. A learning environment which is rich, vibrant and motivates all in the school does not usually get created by chance. They require intensive planning and careful implementation. It should equally inspire all the stake holders—students, teachers and parents.
If we need to inculcate the skills of the future—collaboration, creativity, communication and critical thinking in our children, the classroom interaction needs to change. This requires a relook at the finer aspects of the curriculum framework and detailed planning of each lesson.
There needs to be shift from:
- Knowledge based learning to skill based learning.
- Teaching to Facilitation.
- Evaluation to Assessment for learning.
The curriculum is well-researched to meet the emotional needs of the children even as it prepares them gradually to face the world of tomorrow. Today, as our nation forges ahead from an Industrial Economy to a Knowledge Era, there is tremendous change in the way learning is happening. In today’s age of galloping information, it is a constant challenge for individuals as well as organisations to keep pace. Change is the only constant. What children learn today may not be relevant in the years to come. Therefore, the focus of teaching and learning is to create life long learners.
It has been designed by a dedicated R&D team. This team has been extensively involved in understanding the ‘Developmental Milestones for a Child’ and mapping it to ‘Minimum Learning Levels’ as per the guidelines laid down in the National Curriculum Framework
