Curriculum

GD Goenka Toddler House curriculum is scientifically developed through research and development by psychologists and the best child specialists who understand the stages of development and developmental milestones.

It is aimed at creating a vibrant, joyous and stimulating learning experience for the child.

At Toddler House, we believe in giving every child the space and time they need to learn new things and provide an environment where each child, with their unique personality can blossom.

Our International curriculum provides the right inputs to help the children grow holistically into caring individuals. It equips them to make the right choices in life and grow up to be responsible global citizens.

Our curriculum comprises activities that foster the child’s skills to work with others, play cooperatively, help others, have a sense of empathy, and be part of a team. It helps the child develop respect for everyone around, exhibit gratitude for a beautiful life, learn to forgive, extend love and compassion, enjoy the freedom to explore and express, celebrate the joy of existence, imbibe a sense of responsibility and thoughtfulness, and practise honesty in thoughts and actions.

Our Pedagogy

At Toddler House, the ma​​in aim of early years education is not explicitly “education” in the formal sense but​ also​ the promotion of the health and well being of every child. ​ ​Preschool doesn’t mean we focus on preparing children for school academically,​ alone. ​T​he main goal is to make sure that the children are happy and responsible individuals.​ ​ ​The “joy of learning”​through play, language enrichment and communication​ are the base of our pedagogy.​ ​To ensure this, we have incorporated Jolly Phonics, Howard Gardner's theory on multiple intelligences and Friedrich Froebel’s play methods to achieve the highest potential of the child in any environment and space through activities based on all aspects of intelligence and personality. ​

​​​Carefully organized play helps develop qualities such as attention span, perseverance, concentration and problem solving, which at the age of four are stronger predictors of academic success than the age at which a child learns to read. There is evidence that high-quality early years play-based learning enriches educational development​

Our thematic approach to teaching involves integrating all subject areas together under one theme. It crosses over subject lines and helps children relate basic academic skills to real-world ideas. Through meaningful activities, the themes connect the different learning domains such as Music, Arts, Physical Education and Health, Language and Literacy, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, and Value based Education.
