In order to provide a developmentally appropriate model for the child from age 0 to 6, the Sadhbhavana Little Scholars (SLS) was conceived and created by a team of visionaries who have many years of experience in education under their belt. The well-researched curriculum ensures that the 6 developmental descriptors – social, emotional, sensomotor, cognitive, language and creativity, essential of the child’s development, are given adequate attention in a well-planned and structured manner. The curriculum provides a structured and well-defined pedagogy combined with adequate resources to monitor teaching and learning effectiveness right through the period of study, while keeping a constant vigil on the differentiated learning levels of each child. The framework also encompasses the best practices from the different doctrines of early childhood education – those of the Montessori Method, Reggio Emilia Approach and Waldrof Approach. These include learning through play, use of didactic materials, promotion of imagination with reality, integration of arts, active learning and colourful environment, to mention a few. .
The curriculum of Sadhbhavana Little Scholars has been developed after several years of research with the best minds in early childhood education working together.
Hands on experience is what makes learning more meaningful and lifelong for a child. In order for them to associate, understand and learn various concepts, well researched didactic resources based on Montessori theory are provided.
The SLS curriculum uses themes to deliver concepts and its themes are based on the scientifically proven Bronfenbrenner’s Ecological Systems.
Each child learn at his own momentum and has his own progression graph. Hence, every child experiencing the SLS curriculum is taught as an individual and is encouraged and stimulated to learn at his own pace.
TheSLS environment are learning centres. Each room is unique and dedicated to one of the key areas of development for the child. Children move from one centre to another during the course of the day. Each centre is designed with the domain in mind and becomes a world on its own where there are many learning opportunities for the child.
The assessment practices followed at SLS are at par with the international assessment methods followed in the United Kingdom and Australia. With developmental checklists and learning stories, the children’s unique characteristics are highlighted and nurtured.
