Global Curriculum – APS Early Learning Programme

Picture
Arwachin Public School’s academic program challenges and inspires students to discover their passion and realize their potential. Arwachin’s expertly designed preschool curriculum is introduced to children through the creative method of learning. Two to five-year-old children work together in classrooms. Small groups are created to reach developmental milestones and willingness to learn through exploring, experimenting and repetition. Our curriculum is highly collaborative, real-world focused, and research-based.
  • Creative Learning Programme

    Our Creative Problem Solving model will help your children become creative and critical thinkers, enabling them to deal successfully with complex, open-ended challenges. Our Programme focuses on functional academics along with daily living skills. Through participation in this program, children will develop skills that will allow them to be successful on the job site, in the community, and also in adult living.

  • Developing Lifeskills

    This focuses on developing the student’s personal skills and approaches to positively being able to make use of his/her knowledge to pursue all the opportunities life offers, for the benefit of the individual and society.

  • Practical Life Activities

    Exercises through which the child can learn how to participate in living activities in a purposeful way. The purpose and aim of this program is to help the child gain control in the coordination of his/her movement, and help the child gain independence and adapt to his/her society.

  • Cultural Subjects

    The scope of the Cultural Subjects curriculum includes a sound introduction to Science in large with botany, zoology, chemistry, physics, geology and astronomy as subparts which cultivates the child’s fascination with the universe and helps him/her develop a lifelong interest in observing nature and discovering more about the world in which we live.

  • Field trips

    Field Trips are important to help bridge the gap between education and hands-on experience. These help students interact with what they are learning. The experience goes beyond reading about a concept; students are able to see it, manipulate it or participate in it physically.

  • Physical Training

    Activities that build strength promote strong bones, muscles and good posture. These improve the ability to lift and manoeuvre objects and obstacles and enhance healthy growth and development.

  • Yoga & Aerobics

    Yoga and Aerobics are fun ways to get children involved in physical activity. When children learn techniques for self-health, relaxation, and inner fulfilment, they can navigate life’s challenges with a little more ease.

  • Health & Safety Programme

    Health and safety are major concerns for child care providers when educating children. They are prepared to prevent injuries and illnesses and to handle emergencies. The programme is designed to reassure and equip the child with skills to calmly assess an emergency situation and give immediate first aid when an accident happens.

  • Happy Parenting Workshops

    Parenting classes can help parents learn more about what to expect in the coming years and prepare for each developmental stage. Since confident, decisive parents tend to raise confident, secure children, parenting classes can give you a much-needed skill set and help decrease your feelings of anxiety.

  • Parents Volunteering as Teachers & Care-Givers

    Parent involvement is said to help enhance academics, activities, enrichment and quality of care. Parents are a kid’s first and most important teacher, and parent involvement is closely linked to a rise in student self-confidence.

  • Performing Arts

    Performing arts are a form of art in which artistic expression is conveyed through the use of artists’ voices or bodies, often in relation to other objects. It is different from visual arts, which is when paint, canvas or various materials are used to create physical or static art pieces. Performing arts include several disciplines, such as music, dance, theatre etc which are performed in front of a live audience.

  • Mathematics Program

    A program that includes the ability to explore, conjecture, and reason logically; to solve routine problems; to communicate about and through mathematics, and to construct ideas within mathematics and between other intellectual activity.

  • Classification Skills

    Children can be effectively taught classification by allowing them to sort groups of different objects using their logical thinking skills. Attribute materials are useful tools in teaching classification to children. These are objects that can be sorted in various ways, such as according to shape, color, size and thickness.

  • Outdoor Games & Activities

    Outdoor play enables children to enjoy the natural environment and learn to seek exercise, fresh air, and activity. There is something fundamentally healthy about using the outdoors. Thus outdoor play develops a disposition for the outdoors, for physical activity and for the care of the environment.

  • Language Arts

    Teaching language arts as distinct and specific classes is critically important to learn specific writing, reading, and listening skills. For the student’s success, it is also necessary to take an interdisciplinary approach by applying language arts skills to other subjects.

  • Nature & Science Projects

    Experimentation is of key significance in science instruction – with regard to learning science content, processes and views of the nature of science. These projects instill a deeper understanding of the various scientific concepts which would otherwise be difficult to grasp.

  • Initiative & Social Relations

    Socialization is an important process in child development. Stated simply, it is the process whereby individuals, especially children, become functioning members of a particular group and take on the values, behaviors, and beliefs of the group’s other members.

  • Fine Arts

    Fine art is art developed primarily for aesthetics or beauty, distinguishing it from applied art, which also has to serve some practical function, such as pottery or most metalwork. This allows kids to express themselves better than Math or Science and if children have practice thinking creatively, it will come naturally to them now and in their future career.

  • Sensory Awareness Education

    From birth to early childhood, children use their five senses to explore and try to make sense of the world around them.It’s an important part of early childhood development, and providing opportunities for children to actively use their senses as they explore their world through ‘sensory play’ is crucial to brain development.

Priorities in Action

Picture
The overall goal of the program is to find and nurture potential giftedness among those elementary students most frequently overlooked because of socioeconomic, cultural, and/ or linguistic differences. Most educators and parents are familiar with the many stories of individual students who have risen from poor backgrounds and low academic performance to great heights and outstanding levels of achievement through the help of perhaps one individual who gave the child a lifeline of support at a critical time in his or her school career. Recent research on talent- development, brain research, and accelerated learning includes documentation of such break-through levels of progress and recommends proactive strategies for discovering and developing latent talents and exceptional abilities across a broader spectrum of a school’s or school system’s student population. Accordingly, plans for raising the level of academic challenge and achievement through new initiatives at the school and department levels, including a school for the academically gifted, will emphasize strategies for the early identification and nurturing of outstanding academic ability. Model approaches to developing students’ potential for gifted performance, such as the Program of Assessment and Diagnostic Instruction (PADI) are currently being explored for possible local implementation – with the goal of achieving a more appropriately diverse representation of students performing at exceptionally high levels in any given school or program.
Providing a quality option to the traditional high school program Increasingly, state and national leaders in education recognize the need for high schools to develop new avenues or pathways to student success other than through the traditional approach that often results in low performance and steep declines in high school enrollment for a significant percentage of our students. The Smaller Learning Communities initiative in six high schools is an effort to address this issue. However, with additional support from the Greenville United Way, the school system and other community partners will move forward to design a high-quality alternative to the traditional high school program that will address the evident need for such an option. The alternative high school will be expected to strengthen our local capacity for economic growth and development through graduating more students from high school and building a more direct bridge to viable employment and/or further education.
