Pedagogy

At Prodigy Junior Kidz, we have been inspired by globally accepted best teaching practices such as Inquiry-Based Learning. Our pre-school program enhances a child’s innate curiosity, provides rich and carefully resourced environment to stimulate learning and development in children. To ensure all – round development, we focus on six areas of learning:

  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development

  • Language and Literacy Knowledge

  • Mathematical Understanding

  • Knowledge and Understanding of the world

  • Physical Development

  • Creative Development

Our Approach:

“Education is not about living. It is about making life!”
We strongly believe that just acquiring knowledge doesn’t lead to education, but using that knowledge in real life situation is what makes an individual educated.

Real learning cannot happen unless an experience is attached to it and so we follow the Activity- Based- Experiential Learning Method.


“If a child is not able to learn the way we teach, then we should teach the way they learn.”
The Pre-Primary Curriculum is designed around the 5 - Step Experiential Learning Method that replaces one step - telling approach.

The themes are introduced through an aim, followed by an activity, then analysis, extended through application and finally by an assessment.

Our Life skills:

One of the objectives of formal education is the development of life skills in children. Life skills build in children the necessary social and emotional skills needed to face life. They make children life-ready. Life skills are usually taught in a very simple and engaging manner through a number of interactive games and activities. Given below are the life skills that a pre-school curriculum emphasises.

  • Co-operation and collaboration: While doing group activities with the children, focus on co-operation and collaboration. Encourage children to help each other, work together, share with and befriend one another.

  • Self-help skills: While transitioning between different activities in class, encourage children to put things in the correct places or put things back from where they picked them up. Such small tasks work wonders for children and help them become independent and responsible.

  • Organisational Skills: While doing group work in class, encourage children to be a little organised in terms of the things they need, what each person in the group does, etc. This would require a little bit of hand-holding and guidance from the teacher.

  • Responsibility: Children should be encouraged to do things on their own. This helps them become responsible for what they have done and it also helps them understand things better.

  • Hygiene: Focus on hygiene and cleanliness in the classroom from Day 1. Besides discussing the topics on hygiene in the general awareness book, keep reiterating the benefits of being in a clean environment.

Once the programme is interspersed with life skills, our children are bound to blossom into dynamic, independent and responsible citizens of our country.
