ELITE curriculum is based around the way children naturally learn; they acquire knowledge, develop skills and improve their understanding, applying what they have learned to new situations. In particular, the curriculum was developed with 6 key learning areas in mind:
1. Literacy and Numeracy:
We provide an environment that is rich in stories, rhymes, print and board books encourages a love for reading;
Children begin to use phonics to read and spell, learn to negotiate irregular words and go from simple mark-making to writing words;
Computer Literacy is vital for the 21st century Maldivian kids and hence appropriate use of ICT in teaching and learning will make our kids the future leaders;
Opportunities to explore and solve practical problems allows children to apply and develop their counting, measuring and shape-recognition skills as well as to use the four fundamental operations - addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.
2. Physical development:
Opportunities and experiences offered for the development of balance, coordination and control help children learn the importance of physical activity and making healthy choices.
3. Personal, social and emotional development:
At ELITE International Barru Preschool, we offer a supportive environment that help children develop confidence and form positive relationships.
4. Communication and Leadership:
Children listen to sounds and speech in a variety of situations and respond appropriately; they learn to follow instructions and are able to answer questions about their experiences.
Our kids are offered interactive classroom activities, group works and class presentations to make sure that they become the leaders of their generation.
5. Understanding the world:
ELITE International Barru Preschool is a miniature society. We offer opportunities to explore, observe and find out about people, places, technology and the environment helps young minds understand the world.
6. Holistic Development:
Our kids are born with skills and talents. We just nurture their mind, body and soul to make them marketable responsible citizens of the future.
Assessment FOR Learning ensures each child’s learning pathway is closely monitored and attended at the right time.
