The Objective of the no-limit curriculum and the design of the learning experiences (erstwhile lesson plans) for children in Pragyanam has been designed by Parwarish, through their extensive research with children, parents and teachers for more than 10 years.
It is based on the fundamental belief that
“Children are born with unlimited potential and we as parents and teachers need to create an environment to nurture their nolimtness”
And need to equip them with the 21st century skills.
The Objective of the curriculum delivery is to nurture and inculcate the following in very child.
- Problem solving
- Emotionally and mentally health
- Physically Healthy
- Effective communication
- Interpersonal Relationships
- Self-reliant / Responsible
These elements are the amalgamation of the innate qualities of children, the life skills prescribed by WHO and well researched and published lists of 21st Century skills our children will need to thrive in their lives
The Assessment (erstwhile Report card) of the students is designed to assess the child’s progress on these elements.
Our Educators go through an extensive 3 month training program conducted by Parwarish to not only equip themselves with these tools but also through a journey of personal transformation. This training is mandatory for all educators (academic and non academic) before they start their work with children.
WHAT IS OUR NO- LIMIT CURRICULUM?
Our ‘No-Limit Curriculum’ is about children discovering their own ‘No Limitness’. The curriculum will provide a nurturing and stimulating space for children to learn and grow. Operating from a basic premise that every child can achieve whatever s/he wants to; the school environment will provide a stimulating safe space; where each child can discover the innate abilities and grow to be a ‘No limit’ adult. The No-Limit curriculum aims at giving all these opportunities and also partner and empower parents to facilitate the process at home to create an environment, free from the limiting beliefs of ‘limited abilities’; thus, empowering each child to explore and grow.
HOW IT WILL BE DELIVERED
There is no dearth to learning. Nature, animals, plants, natural phenomenon and people around have a lot to offer. It is all about our interface with these elements and what we make out of it. Pragyanam’s ‘No-Limit Curriculum’ is an open curriculum,which uses this premise to support making the child’s experiences, richer. A rigorous 3 months teachers training will empower the teachers to develop their learning designs based on age-specific, child development learning indicators.
A healthy mix of new and traditional methods would be used for effective delivery of No-Limit Curriculum
- Courseware– using a rich mix of NCERT and other guiding texts
- A mix of structured and unstructured co-scholastic activities like dance/ drama/ theatre/ storytelling/ P.E
- Theme-wise and Integrated subjects’ approach: Subjects are not stand-alone. They are inter-related. No Limit Curriculum aims at introducing themes at different class levels and hence exploring and understanding these themes using various subjects.
- Individualized Educational Plans– Every child respected for her own pace to learn, grow and develop- thus providing no scope for comparisons.
