All Round Development/ Holistic Development
Skill Stork International School’s Early Years Program defines a cohesive approach to teaching and learning for children of ages 2 years to 6 years. The purpose of the program is to establish a robust foundation for learning in the early years and to do so in a benign, play-based, and academically enriching environment.
Our IB Early Years Program is uniquely designed to be developmentally, culturally, linguistically and socially relevant to our young minds. It inculcates in our children the qualities of curiosity, investigation and discovery in a fun-filled milieu. Our curriculum considers the need for all children to be exposed to all domains of development – physical and motor, language, cognitive, social and emotional – so no single domain takes precedence over any other.
Learning through Play-based Inquiry
We believe that children learn best when they can inquire into areas of their interest through meaningful interactions with adults and peers. Engaging young children through play-based inquiry helps create a natural love for learning in them.
In our Early Years, educators embed opportunities for learning through play - indoors and outdoors, through structured and unstructured play.
Play helps children build strong communication skills, self-regulation, social skills, persistence, creativity and problem-solving skills.
Encouraging constructive play in the classroom, and strategically harnessing its power for specific learning purposes allows for authentic engagement and deep learning opportunities for our tiny tots.
Nurturing the Sense of ‘Belongingness’
Our Classroom communities celebrating acts of kindness and respectfully resolving conflict reinforce a sense of justice and goodwill.
Singing and dancing together creates a language of unity that our students understand - a sense of safety in a community that is greater than any individual member.
Feeling secure in a kind and beautiful classroom creates a strong inner foundation for the development of a student’s academic and relational character.
By joining students in the inquiry process and creating rich opportunities for discovery, for building deep expertise, and for sharing that new knowledge, teachers are able to harness the “engine” of children’s natural learning predispositions to power their success in our classroom.
Experiential Learning along with Sensory Play
Cognitive skills and literacy are built on a foundation of sensory integration. Our early years teachers find ways to develop the senses through playful movement, and to link learning with physical activity. They invite children to explore complex concepts first through movement, then through feelings, and finally in thought.
Our classrooms are well equipped with sensory play tools.
Sensory play helps our students in the following ways-
- It helps to build nerve connections in the brain.
- It encourages the development of motor skills.
- It supports language development.
- It encourages 'scientific thinking’ and problem-solving.
- It can involve mindful activities which are beneficial for all children.
Rich Literacy and Math experiences
They are more so important in today’s world that is driven by collaboration, communication, science and technology. At Skill Stork, we have moved away from worksheets and other methods involving rote learning for developing these skills. Instead, our literacy and math programs are integrated with all aspects of a child’s time in the school, all throughout the day. We have dedicated Math and Literacy time in the day for problem-solving and math-based inquiry and developing phonics, reading and speaking skills.
Making thinking and learning visible
Our educators at Skill Stork constantly strive towards boosting children to express, share, and perform their understanding. They document information about children’s learning through notes, photos, video and voice recordings, and interactions with children.
Educators put together Portfolios, which are rich records of children and their understandings, as observed by educators, throughout the school time.
At Skill Stork International School we harness early learners’ natural strengths to develop their character, imagination, identity, and physical engagement, we are able to provide the optimal foundation for all our students so as to become active contributors to building a better world and succeed in school, college, career, and life.
