Blending the best of British learning with the best of India
We believe that a child learns all the time and in all situations – consciously and subconsciously and that knowledge is the outcome of a child’s own activity in a well stimulated and guided environment. The curriculum is based on the understanding that the child is a natural learner and it draws upon each learner’s ability to construct their own knowledge and supportively nurtures their interest in ‘making meaning’. Learning and teaching is not compartmentalized. It is a curriculum that is integrated both vertically and horizontally – it has the interconnectedness both between Learning Areas and between groups across a Learning Area.
We believe that children are constantly learning from their environment, be it at home, school, park, or on vacation – this learning can be consciously or subconsciously. This knowledge is the outcome of a child’s own activity in varied learning experiences. The curriculum is based on the understanding that the child is a natural learner and draws upon each learner’s ability to construct their own knowledge. At King’s College India, education nurtures each child’s interest in making meaning through hands on experiences, research of queries that are driven by the child. We strive to ignite the child’s imagination through impressionistic charts and lessons. Learning and teaching is not compartmentalized. Our curricula are comprised of all subject lessons designed to be interconnected through project rubrics.
Equal importance is given to the need to develop in the learners certain ‘generic’/ fundamental learning skills and in context, in order that the learners are engaged with learning; meaningfully understand and create new experiences and become lifelong and independent learners. These skills include—analytical and critical thinking, communication, research, self-management and social skills. A child’s natural curiosity is thus always strongly encouraged. King’s College India’s curriculum takes the best from various systems and yet is also strongly based to meet the needs of higher education. It is enquiry based, includes individual and collaborative learning and is focused on actualization of individual potential.
