Early childhood sets the foundations for life. It is a highly sensitive period marked by rapid transformations in physical, cognitive, language, social and emotional development. Research has proven that the brain forms as many as 700 neural connections per second before the age of 5. Well-designed ECCE programmes can significantly enhance young children’s well-being in these formative years and in the future, complementing the care they receive at home. Programmes that combine nutrition, health, care and education have a positive impact on holistic development of children and participation in ECCE also facilitates primary school enrolment and leads to better results not limited to the first years of school.
In September 2013, The Ministry of Women and Child Development passed the resolution around national Early Childhood Care and Education (ECCE) policy. The policy aims to regularize and enhance the quality of preschool establishments in the country which is expected to carry out activities for the promotion of all round development, care and school readiness of young children over a prescribed time. Under the policy, a preschool teaching methodology is required to include play and activity, learning by doing in a child-friendly, child-centric disabled friendly manner, to promote child’s self-expression, self-esteem, and self- confidence.
We educate preschoolers in an engaging and entertaining way. Sesame Street Preschool’s pedagogy focuses on engaging, entertaining and educating children making best use of media, activities and play. Our unique 6 step methodology includes: Introduction of a concept through engaging Sesame Street proprietary materials, Recall through verbal, visual and kinesthetic ways, Demonstration through hands-on activities and play, Reinforcement through audio visual and media, Reflection through worksheets and art and Application through games and other activities.
From the outset, Sesame Street Preschool has been aligned to all ECCE guidelines. The mission of Sesame Street is to help all children reach their highest potential, regardless of their economic, physical and social background. Sesame Street Preschool goes beyond the ABCs and 123s to instill 21st century skills of Imagination, Collaboration, Creativity and Communication We understand that rote learning is not the answer to prepare children for school and their life ahead. They need to be armed with the understanding of concepts and their successful application beyond the classroom. Child empowerment is a cornerstone of our philosophy and this is demonstrated through our unique teaching methodology.
Beyond education, we lay great emphasis on child protection and safety, empowerment of children, positive role modelling, inclusion, mutual respect and tolerance, and parent involvement. As an organisation, it subscribes to non-discrimination and inclusion at all levels. Regarding universal access with equity and inclusion, Sesame Street Preschool promises a welcoming inclusive environment for all stakeholders including children, parents and staff members. We believe that all children should have access to high quality early childhood education irrespective of their abilities and background. Our guiding principles are:
– Inclusion is based on acceptance and appreciation of diversity and ensuring equal opportunities to all.
– A programme that is flexible to accommodate the diverse needs of young children.
– Actively promote inclusion of children by making additional provisions for children who need a little extra care and attention.
