Nurturing Young Minds
Providing a strong base in scholastic and co-scholastic aspects creates a flourishing future for all children right from the early years. The methodologies are important to impart a unique curriculum and integrated and thematic learning. Birla Edutech emphasizes these factors to give the best to the kids in the initial study days.
Ensuring the Best Budding Days
The Birla Edutech curriculum is an amalgamation of global best practices and caters to the needs of the 21st-century learners. The curriculum follows the Multiple Intelligence Theory and uses Developmentally Appropriate Practices. The focus is on Holistic Development of children that would nurture sensitivity towards self, others and the environment. It has the unique blend of scholastic and co-scholastic subjects wherein the learning outcomes highlighted are critical thinking, collaboration and cooperation.
Preschool Culture in India
The state of preschool education in India is still in its nascent stage, and thus a lot of efforts are being put by the government and early years’ educationists to highlight its importance and streamline the early years’ program. The success of any institution is a collective effort of all participants – the children, teachers and the parents. It is a symbiotic relationship and it is vital for all units of the organization to be there for achieving success. Thus, apart from the mainstream ways of study a lot of efforts are needed to create not only a good student but a perfect human being.
This is the reason Birla Edutech has taken special initiatives to make Health and Hygiene, an integral part of the curriculum, believing in the fact that ‘Healthy body will have a healthy mind!’ along with it, inculcating sports and physical education into the daily routine of the lives of children from the early years is crucial, and that is what BEL does in all its schools.
Expertise in World-class Education
Activity-based approach and experiential learning is the basis of the teaching-learning process at all the Birla Edutech preschools. The first 6 to 8 years of a child’s life are globally acknowledged to be the most critical years for lifelong development as the pace of development in these years is extremely rapid. Recent research in the field of neuroscience, particularly on the brain, has provided convincing evidence of the ‘critical periods’ present within these early years for the formation of synaptic connections in the brain and for the full development of the brain’s potential. At the BEL schools, all students are given the opportunity to participate and get involved in various activities. These are a healthy mix of academic and non-academic plans. Also, BEL is getting into E-learning and digitization of all learning methods.
