At Early Learning Village (ELV), we understand that development in a child’s early years is crucial for lifelong well-being and success, says Pradeep Jolly, Co-Founder, Early Learning Village & Wonderland, in an interview with Elets News Network (ENN).
How does Early Learning Village help its students to grow and develop while reading, listening and playing?
Our team of internationally experienced educators work closely with students to ensure that the time spent at Early Learning Village (ELV) is enjoyable and enriching. the international Early years (iEy) Curriculum underpins all learning at our preschool. it is a comprehensive curriculum focused explicitly on the developmental needs of young children. the globally accredited iEy curriculum clearly defines learning and development goals and helps your child to be internationally minded. Children use childfriendly cameras, bee-bots, learning apps and voice recorders to develop skills in technology at ELV preschool.
Infrastructure wise, what facilities are provided at early learning village to make the learning delightful for students, yet keeping them safe?
Children learn in an environment that provides stimulating spaces and exciting experiences. A child’s day at Early Learning Village has a balance of open-ended activities, exploration, child-initiated play supported by adults, focused-learning with adult guiding, and learning through playful and rich experiential activities. our outdoor activities provide children with a range of engaging and challenging opportunities to explore freely, develop physically, and solve problems while playing independently and collaboratively.
All the activities are on the lines of international practices. Focusing on the idea that every child learns in a healthy and safe environment, we ensure learning spaces both indoor and outdoor are designed to involve our students.
How various programmes at Early Learning Village help the students to develop holistically?
All our programmes have been purposefully designed to support every child’s educational needs. the Adult and Child Programme allows parents to be present while their children learns in an informal educational setting. our Early year programmes for students aged 2-4 allow them to learn at their own pace, discover areas of their interest and be creative. Expressive arts and creativity are an important part of the ELV curriculum. our play space is a safe, rich and dynamic environment to grow confidence, take risks and solve problems while playing independently and collaboratively.
How the curriculum helps the preschool students face real-life challenges?
Learning happens when a child’s natural curiosity is enabled in a safe environment. independent earning experiences create a context for personal development and are the foundation of nurturing global citizens. our curriculum involves ongoing assessment in the form of evaluation and reflection of the activities. outdoor play opens up a vast universe of learning for children which, in return, helps in developing skills like critical thinking, problem-solving and crisis management.
How do you see the road ahead for the Early Learning Village?
We are currently focused on being consistent with our care and quality measures while making sure that we create a beautiful closed community of parents. We aim to touch the lives of more children, ensuring that we continue to create a positive impact in their growth and learning.
