Curriculum

At Olive Trails, we want to give our students the best of knowledge by utilizing appropriate methods & material.

Children are taught using hands-on learning methods that allows them to be active participants throughout the day. Our unique curriculum promotes discovery and exploration and prepares children for life beyond the classroom.

OUR APPROACH

Our curriculum is founded on the belief that all children are natural learners who are curious about the world around them. We strive to enhance their curiosity through inquiry based learning and creative exploration enabling them to be independent thinkers. Our inquiry-based programme provides opportunities for children to be independent, creative and confident problem-solvers.

We are dedicated to providing a rich and diverse curriculum that allows each child to exhibit their individuality through different forms of self-expression and group participation.

BENEFITS OF PLAY-BASED LEARNING

CORE CURRICULUM

We provide a curriculum which is engaging, exciting, challenging, and relevant to children. The curriculum encourages children to engage in constructive questioning and problem solving as they develop key concepts and knowledge about the world around them.

The curriculum is organized into the following areas of learning:

It includes the basics of oral communication, speaking, listening, reading, comprehending simple texts, and writing skills. Educators provide children with higher levels of language stimulation by asking questions, responding to their vocalizations, and engaging in positive talk.

Students will be exposed to Hindi/ French from Nursery through songs, stories and cultural learning experiences

Children develop their skills in numbers, counting, solving number problems, measuring, sorting, comparing, creating patterns, adding and subtracting numbers. Educators support this learning through practical tasks, games, songs rhymes and role plays that makes them motivated to learn more. We also help children understand how mathematics can be applied in real life.

Children learn various skills through the themes that we follow at Olive Trails. Educators create a very enriching and stimulating environment which provokes the children to inquire, ask questions about the world around them and gives them opportunities for experimenting and exploring areas of science and social studies.

Children are immersed in a world of structured learning and social interaction. Teachers establish positive relationships with children and value their diverse cultures and languages, fostering healthy personal and social development. These skills build children’s social-emotional abilities that influence their success in school and in life.

Children play games and participate in activities that challenge and develop their gross-motor and fine-motor skills promoting healthy physical development. They learn balance, coordination and skills, such as running, hopping, climbing and jumping.

Learning arts helps children experience a unique integration of the body and mind. It engages a child’s imagination through art, dance, drama, puppetry, and music. The arts enable children to grow in confidence and learn to think positively about themselves and learning.
