Your child's needs during this period are different from those of older school children, since young children experience the greatest growth and development, when the brain develops most rapidly, almost at its fullest. It is during this period when walking, talking, self-esteem, vision of the world and moral foundations are established.
“We focus on the individual needs of each child," says Ibu Carrie, the Head of Early Years and Primary “and by integrating the IPC and Indonesian National Curriculum we create a dynamic curriculum tailor made for our student population to provide our children with the best possible start in life”.
The focus of early childhood education is the child. The child is central to what is planned, implemented and evaluated. It is important to observe and evaluate each child and then to plan a programme to suit the abilities and interests of individuals as well as groups of children.
The learning activities at Sekolah Cita Buana reflect real life experiences and interaction with developmentally appropriate materials. Children are given the time to fully experience the activities and the encouragement to think about their experiences. The children learn through observation, imitation, exploration and direct experience with interesting materials. Children learn through using all of their senses. The Early Years Programme supports active child participation by including the children in planning activities.
At Sekolah Cita Buana the children are encouraged to do as much for themselves as possible so that they become independent and responsible individuals.
