Principles of Early Childhood Education

“Principles of ECCED” aims to introduce the concept of early childhood care and education for children from birth to six years. The course focuses on the importance of early childhood years and the significance of early childhood education. It provides an overview of the historical development of early childhood education in India and across the globe as well as the contributions of notable philosophers. The course also develops awareness on recent developments, such as policies and the role of different organizations in the field of early childhood care and education.


Theories of Learning

Learning theories are conceptual frameworks describing how information is absorbed, processed, and retained during learning. Learning style theories propose that individuals learn in different ways, that there are distinct learning styles and that knowledge of a learner’s preferred learning style will lead to faster and more satisfactory learning. Thus, this course brings about awareness of these radically different theories and also makes them relevant to the classroom by addressing their application in different aspects of classroom learning.


Child Development

Child development refers to the biological, psychological and emotional changes that occur in human beings between birth and the end of adolescence. Because these developmental changes may be strongly influenced by genetic factors and events during prenatal life, genetics and prenatal development are usually included as part of the study of child development. This course enhances your understanding of the social, cognitive, emotional, and educational development of children. It introduces the latest researches in this field that have resulted in new theories and strategies, with specific regard to practice that promotes child development within the school system.


Methods and Materials (Special Focus: Pedagogy for International Schools)

Kindergarten is the first time most children are exposed to a classroom environment that is not only about playing but also being attentive to the teacher and completing tasks. Teachers in kindergarten classrooms use several teaching methods to ensure that each student is learning what she needs to know. This course will give a deeper understanding of teaching methods that are designed to help not only those students who excel but also those students who are lagging behind. The course incorporates a wide range of instructional strategies.


School Management

School Administration is a process in an educational setting that deals with the planning, organizing, directing, and organisation of resources. This course will include administration of personnel, managing school finances, event management, curriculum administration and building relationships with the school community.

The Course components will also include Field Visits, Seminars, Conferences, Volunteer Work, Case Studies, and Social Work with various NGOs.
