A Curriculum to cater the 21st Century Education
At IAS, we believe each child is different and requires special attention to inculcate hygienic and moral principles in their mind alongside increasing their interest towards education-based activities, games and other development activities.
Our curriculum is primarily designed on the basis of the following 3 principles.
1. Every child is different
2. Questioning based
3. Development of the cognitive, social, emotional and metacognitive capabilities
Cognition consists of acquiring knowledge and an understanding of the world around us. It forms the building blocks of knowledge, moving to understanding, application and making new connections. Continuous development of all levels of cognition leads to better questioning, problem-solving, and generation of new ideas, prediction, generalization, and reflection.
The social domain places the child in the context of the society. The growth of social domain helps a child to relate to others and empathize with them, including those from diverse backgrounds and cultures. Continuous development of the social domain empowers the child to communicate clearly, listen well, cooperate with others, resist inappropriate social pressure, negotiate conflict constructively, and seek and offer help when needed.
Nurturing the emotional domain provides the ability for a child to accurately recognize one’s emotions, and further, to regulate the emotions and behavior appropriately. Continuous development of the emotional domain helps the child to effectively manage stress, control impulses, and motivate oneself.
Metacognition is the process of thinking about one’s own thinking. This is an ability that may be unique to humans. It gives the child the ability to control thinking and feeling through various strategies, such as organizing, monitoring, and adapting to situations. Continuous development of the metacognitive domain helps in self-improvement, ultimately leading to self-discovery.
