A kindergarten (from German Kindergarten, literally “children’s garden”) is a preschool educational institution for children. The term was created by Friedrich Fröbel for the play and activity institute that he created in 1837 in Bad Blankenburg as a social experience for children for their transition from home to school. His goal was that children should be taken care of and nourished in “children’s gardens” like plants in a garden.The term kindergarten is used around the world to describe a variety of different institutions that have been developed for children ranging from the ages of two to seven, depending on the country concerned. Many of the activities developed by Fröbel are also used around the world under other names. Playing, singing, practical activities, and social interaction are now widely accepted as essential aspects of developing skills and knowledge.
It is well established that the most important years of learning are begun at birth. During these early years, a human being is capable of absorbing more information at a time than they will ever be able to again. The environment of the young child influences the development of cognitive skills and emotional skills due to the rapid brain growth that occurs in the early years. Studies have shown that high quality/ or any high rated preschools have a long term effect in improving the outcomes of a child, especially a disadvantaged child.
Children between the age group of 4.5 – 5.5 years.
In the KG2 program, the attention is on maintaining vocabulary and applying the concepts, which the children have already learnt in KG1.
Kids learn to read and write, using innovative learning methods and tools designed especially for this age group. Tough subjects like Math are taught using a child-centric approach, considering individual capacities and capabilities.
The attention of this section is on developing the attention span of the children with a view to accelerate their learning process and ready them for extensive studies in the years to come.
