The VISHWAKOSHA GURUKULA school is focused on Learning Criteria for 21st Century while maintaining our traditions and cultures ,
We have ensured that every classroom is fitted with multimedia computers. We have got, interactive whiteboards or ‘smart boards’. Each classroom is fitted with a smart board, which is connected to an overhead projector and the classroom computer. These boards are used along with educational software to help make teaching and learning an effectual, interactive and fun process.
Social learning theory is based on the work of psychologist Albert Bandura. According to social learning theory, behaviors can also be learned through observation and modeling. By observing the actions of others, including parents and peers, children develop new skills and acquire new information.
Child development theories focus on explaining how children change and grow over the course of childhood. Such theories center on various aspects of development including social, emotional, and cognitive growth.
The study of human development is a rich and varied subject. We all have personal experience with development, but it is sometimes difficult to understand how and why people grow, learn, and act as they do.
Why do children behave in certain ways? Is their behavior related to their age, family relationships, or individual temperaments? Developmental psychologists strive to answer such questions as well as to understand, explain, and predict behaviors that occur throughout the lifespan.
The Sensorimotor Stage: A period of time between birth and age two during which an infant’s knowledge of the world is limited to his or her sensory perceptions and motor activities. Behaviors are limited to simple motor responses caused by sensory stimuli.
The Preoperational Stage: A period between ages 2 and 6 during which a child learns to use language. During this stage, children do not yet understand concrete logic, cannot mentally manipulate information and are unable to take the point of view of other people.
The Concrete Operational Stage: A period between ages 7 and 11 during which children gain a better understanding of mental operations. Children begin thinking logically about concrete events, but have difficulty understanding abstract or hypothetical concepts.
The Formal Operational Stage: A period between age 12 to adulthood when people develop the ability to think about abstract concepts. Skills such as logical thought, deductive reasoning, and systematic planning also emerge during this stage.
In order to implement these theory in VKGK curriculum, We have a frame work on how children’s should be thought in each and every stage as suggested by our child physiologist and educational experts.
We have chosen the KOSHA Curriculum based on its developmentally appropriate approach to learning.
The Kosha Curriculum is based on 38 objectives for development and learning that are aligned with the NCRT Learning Standards, covering language and literacy, math and science, social skills, physical development, critical thinking and the arts. The philosophy behind the Creative Curriculum is that young children learn best by doing. Learning requires active thinking and experimenting to find out how things work, and to understand firsthand about the world in which we live.
Our goal in using the kosha Curriculumis to help children become enthusiastic learners. We encourage children to be active and creative explorers who are not afraid to try out their ideas and think their own thoughts. We want to help children become independent, self-confident and inquisitive learners. We’re teaching them how to learn, not just in preschool, but all through their lives.
We incorporate additional resources to allow our teachers to have access to numerous tools for lesson planning and implementation. Our theme-based lessons will last anywhere from 2-6 weeks, depending on the topic and the children’s interest level. Lesson plans are posted outside each classroom so that you can stay involved in your child’s daily activities
VKGK curriculum is subject centered with students and teachers oriented, where creative in teaching, various type of learner and level of involvement is kept in mind and relevant teaching method and material are used for effective learning.
We recognize that developing a child’s social competencies enhances his/her ability to succeed in school, in work, and in life.
Conscious Discipline is a relationship-based, community model for helping children develop problem solving and self-regulation skills. It has been proven to improve the quality of teacher-child interactions, improve the school climate, and can lead to increases in academic readiness and achievement, which is why we have chosen to implement these strategies into our classrooms.
We have a well stocked libraries with a diverse range of books allow students to travel across time into different worlds. We have educational and recreational books as well as other multimedia resources for both, the students and staff, to access. The spacious, airy library has been designed to foster an interest in books and is intended to offer every child the opportunity to explore and develop his or her individual interests. The library uses an integrated management system that ensures efficient day-to-day running, circulation and inventory management.
