Features of Good Preschool Curriculum


A child is what he learns at preschool. The curriculum plays a very important part in the child’s development. Ideally preschool curriculum should be a mix of learning and fun. Read on to know the basics of designing an ideal curriculum for preschool.



Nowadays a lot of people are concerned about preschool curriculum. Even the educationists are giving a serious thought on what should be a part of this curriculum and what should be avoided. Since the
preschool is the stepping stone of the child’s formal academic career, it is important that the building blocks are right in place. Every preschool has its own set of rules and philosophy. This is therefore essential that the parents acquire every detail of the preschool before admitting their kid in it. They ought to be aware of the preschool curriculum well before hand.


Preschool curriculum needs to be designed by professionals

The design of the preschool curriculum is very important. The program should be a balanced one that is a holistic one or a wholesome one involving every type of activity that aids the growth of the child’s developing faculties. Roughly, it should be a good combination of reading, writing, math exercises, art and crafts along with a fair amount of hands-on activities that are educative as well as exciting and interesting for the kid. The point is that the developmental needs and requirements should be met through the preschool curriculum.


What should be Kept in Mind?

The important point to note out here is that the activity should not tire out the child and he should not feel fatigued. It is essential to ensure that the child is full of energy else he would not be interested in anything that is going on around him. And disinterest will not help him to learn anything.


Design should be Intelligent

The design of the preschool curriculum should be intelligent so that the fun way in which the activities are carried out excites the child. When the child is excited, they will naturally learn faster too.


Curriculum Should Start with Basic Skills

The preschool curriculum should start with the basic skills at the onset. It should all begin with the identification of the objects, shapes and colours. Through objects, models, pictures or visuals on the screen, acquaint the kids with the real world around. After this is done the teachers focus on the association part.


Teaching in the
Fun Way

The projects in the preschool curriculum constitute of activities that involve creative art. They have a lot of activity pages, work sheet, poems, rhythmic songs and crafts classes that are carried out in groups. Everything is taught through fun games so that the kids are interested in what is going on and simultaneously learn from it.


Activities should Develop Skills

In a preschool curriculum all the activities are so designed so that the child gets an opportunity to develop his skills. This involves the creative, apprehensive and the motor skills. Focus on an all round development. The objective is to involve the lessons in the later stage of the kid’s academic life in school.

The preschool curriculum also works on making the child environmentally conscious through simple gardening lessons and teaching them to plant trees and keeping their surroundings clean.

Basically, the preschool curriculum is categorized into modules that have reading, writing, story-telling, science, arithmetic and social studies to aid the behavioral development of the child. After the lessons are taught the preschoolers are asked to work on specific work books that are designed keeping mind their age.

The designs of these workbooks are such that all the knowledge that the kid should be possessing at that age is worked on and tested. And all through, the interest of the child on the respective activity and subject is ensured. The overall objective is to provide knowledge through fun and in a manner that it is retained and prove to be beneficial in the later life of the kid.

The fact is that none of the preschools / day care / creche etc are having any proper syllabus and curriculum.
The problem of preschools in India is so grave that even the Government of India is awakened to this reality and is coming up with Curricular Laws.
I visited “Preschool for Child Rights” and read one eye opening article - "Reality Check for Parents preschools in India", suggest everybody to read that article.
Just look for - "Reality Check for Parents preschools in India" on the website of - “Preschool for Child Rights” and decide.

Hi, Also another thing that makes a good Preschool, is the kind of curriculum that is followed. While many schools go in for different methods of teaching, I think the Multiple Intelligence concept meets all the needs of the child.
According to Gardner, there are more ways to do this than just through logical and linguistic intelligence. Gardner believes that the purpose of schooling. They cannot assess or predict a person’s ability to learn, to assimilate new information, or to solve new problems. Gardner's theory argues that students will be better served by a broader vision of education, wherein teachers use different methodologies, exercises and activities to reach all students, not just those who excel at linguistic and logical intelligence. It challenges educators to find ways that will work for this student learning this topic.

Little Einsteins Preschools is the first school to adapt this concept. And is reaching all levels of childhood. Believing that there is a "Genius Within every child"
