KIDKEN PRESCHOOL CURRICULUM
KIDKEN preschool curriculum is a proven and research-based academic program for schools that build thinking skills and problem-solving confidence in children. We lead from the front in the widespread pursuit of a better, more effective approach to education.
Since the evolution of early childhood education, the curriculum has been intertwined, and often bewildered with some related issues like beliefs, learning theories/pedagogues, and skills/standards. The curriculum is different from the guiding principles or beliefs about children and their learning.
When you start a school, the image and branding are the most vital aspects. Nevertheless, in order to retain parents and move a school from strength to strength depends on how well a school education program is, especially in its curriculum but also the confidence it creates in every child.
It lays before a child diverse pathways. First, we observe each child and make a note about the preferred learning style of each child. Once this is accomplished, activities will be built according to his / her comfort learning style. This approach ensures that no pressure is made on the child and hence they grow at their own pace.
The curriculum helps in overall development of the child through various activities of sensorial, exercises of practical life, mathematics, language, sciences. The curriculum provides a child with opportunities to exercise freedom of choice, freedom of work and an ample space to enhance creativity, socio-economic skills.
Assessments push a student forward and help them become better partners in their own learning. Teachers’ work is reduced as they do not need to make worksheets and assessments. Focus changes from completion to perfection.
Kidken Uses Advanced Pedagogy of The Young Child
An elegant Kidken preschool curriculum inspires social interaction, mechanical skills, and the fundamentals of academic education required for children to succeed. An integrated curriculum sees children’s experiences as learning opportunities, which are all interwoven. Integrated themes and project form the foundation for curriculum planning. It enables three and four-year-old children to make connections among and between ideas and knowledge, which are meaningful to them. This type of learning employs an interdisciplinary approach, which discourages the separation of learning activities into distinct subject areas. And also promotes the linking of learning experiences across developmental domains, as well as, across content/subject areas.
Learning, therefore, is viewed in a holistic manner using a variety of materials, leading to children’s acquisition of knowledge, skills, dispositions, and feelings. An integrated curriculum will facilitate children’s exploration, discovery, problem-solving, critical thinking and experimentation in a meaningful context and also allows a project-based emergent or negotiated curriculum to inform the learning and teaching processes. Children learn from personally meaningful experiences, which reflect the reality of their lives. Integrated themes and projects will be used to engage young children in thoughtful, purposeful learning.

Our Curriculum Integrates The World's Best Education Systems
1. The Montessori Method of Dr. Maria Montessori
2. Multiple Intelligences of Dr. Howard Gardner
3. Bloom Taxonomy of Dr. Benjamin Bloom
4. Theme Based Approach
Kidken preschool curriculum approach is to incorporate and integrate the best possible methods, which caters to each child with his/her varying needs and abilities. The curriculum is designed in such a way that it ignites the child’s inquisitive ability to learn, nurtures curiosity and gives in an abundance of the pathway to creativity. The weaving of different approaches together in itself brings out the rich experience of explorations to the child.
Our curriculum integrates hands-on teaching techniques and activities. Our kinesthetic activity-based learning technique brings the playground into the classroom. Montessori said ‘the hand builds the brain.’ No other curriculum can claim to integrate.
The observations and assessments play vital role in understanding child’s progress, strengthening their abilities and in providing the areas that need more exposures. We offer a software solution to make this process an easy solution, where the teacher can focus on her planning to work with each child, rather than being hassled upon the data. The whole approach makes the job simple and approachable. The idea of authentic assessments brings a great sense of relief to parents and also helps teacher’s to provide everything that takes to bring the best in each child.
Stimulates a sense of self discipline, independence, freedom to explore and be creative in the environment. The environment is an open environment where children choose their own materials and work with them based on presentations done by the teachers. Children work in a typical fashion with low level desks (chowki’s) and mats.
Here the child picks and works with materials on their own. The role of a teacher in the classroom is restricted as “Spectators”, “Facilitators” and “Presenters”.
A lesson must start with kinesthetic learning and then proceed to abstraction followed by written expression. Learning should be based on doing some hands-on experiments and activities. The idea of activity-based learning is rooted in the common notion that children are active learners rather than passive recipients of information. If a child is provided the opportunity to explore on their own and provided an optimum learning environment then the learning becomes joyful and long-lasting.
Our whole year lesson plan is designed to give you the flexibility to experiment and experience depending on your group of the children. Along with that, it also allows you to bring out the vast variety of aspects of possibilities in enriching the learning experience.
A mixed age pooling helps the child to interact with all age group children. The interactions between children will enhance the social behavior, sharing, caring, leadership skills, etc. The class will be divided into different corners based on the required area of development. Like, language corner, cognitive corner, creative corner, sensorial corner, and so on. Thus, mixing the different age groups encourages the development of the child and helps each child learn at his / her own pace. There is also an insurance that they get access to all materials. And in this way, adults can easily monitor the progress and usage of materials easily.
Our preschool curriculum is based on years of research on what can help in the holistic development of the child. The whole framework of the curriculum not only aims at the relevant development of the child, but also in giving meaningful experiences that provide a strong foundation for the child in the enjoying the process of learning.
Study material is easily understandable and the students can progress faster, learn more independently.
