We envision to spark human greatness in every single child by discovering and then nurturing each child’s unique gift. As pre-primary is a crucial stage in a child’s life, we have very thoughtfully planned the curriculum for our pre-primary students. It allows for a child to develop their curiosity, play, relationships, interests, sense of self and place, creativity, and independence, all of which this curriculum helps to foster.
We firmly opine that it is mandatory for schools to break their monotonous educational regime and embrace an ardent approach to overcome the hurdles that this ever-changing world has to offer. At Mount Dios International School, the process of equipping the child with the necessary tools for growth is shaped by blending the strengths of different curriculums. Our curriculum is thus devised to promote a comprehensive learning environment which will encourage broadening of horizons and manifestation of strengths and capabilities
The curriculum is designed to span two years, ages four to six. The majority of the content is universal across both years for two reasons: developing continuity and cohesion in the practices and principles, and recognizing the wide range of abilities children can have in these two years.
Mount Dios curriculum is divided into age appropriate monthly themes. The integrated and interdisciplinary learning system, along with engaging and hands-on activities, ensures that all our children are successful learners. The methodology ensures that learning is thought-provoking and empowering since it is based on the latest theories, brain research, and best practices in education.
The themes and Lesson Ideas begin with the child’s most immediate knowledge, guiding them towards a stronger conception of themselves before moving outwards to familiar people and environments, the city, other living beings, other parts of the country and world, and other time periods. The curriculum for Nursery progresses through Hello World, Our Home, Creators, and Explorers; Kindergarten takes children on a journey through Living Beings, Citizens of the World, Happy and Healthy, and Time Machine.
The following characteristics are integral throughout the curriculum, including the guides, learning objectives, Lesson Ideas, and resources:
