CURRICULUM

Chrysalis ThinkRoom KG is a research based curriculum developed by Chrysalis to ensure the holistic development of the child while catering to the different kind of learners. It focuses on creating an emotionally-safe learning environment, thus helping them boost their confidence and self-esteem to aid complete development.

1.                   4 Domains of Development:

Every activity in Chrysalis ThinkRoom KG focuses on the 4 domains of development:

·         Physical Domain – The physical development of the child involves 2 kinds of motor development:

Gross motor:  This involves learning to use all of the “big” muscles in their body.  Crawling, walking, running, skipping, jumping, and climbing are all examples of gross motor activity. 

Fine motor:  Fine motor activities teach hand-eye coordination.  These activities require a child to learn to precisely control the muscles in the hands.  Things like coloring, writing, cutting with scissors, using tweezers, tearing paper all help build fine motor skills. 

·         Cognitive Domain - This includes cause-and-effect, reasoning, as well as early-math skills. Counting and patterning are also included in this domain for preschoolers. 

 

·         Language and Communicative Domain - This domain includes alphabetic, phonemic awareness, oral, and written language. 

 

·         Socio-Emotional Domain – Social domain refers to the connections they've made with people and how well they are interacting with them. The emotional domain is the emotional connections and amount of self-confidence they have.

 

The uniqueness Chrysalis ThinkRoom KG is that the 4 domains are seamlessly integrated into the curriculum so that no domain is left out even in case there is time crunch in completing the portions. Ensures holistic development and integrates academics with development across domains.

 

2.                   Catering to Multiple Intelligences:

 

All the methodologies are mapped to the Multiple Intelligence Theory where each experience will appeal to different intelligences, thus addressing the varied interests and abilities of the whole group, small group or even individual children.

 

3.        NAMPS Approach to English:

 

NAMPS approach ensures that the children learn to read words and sentences faster. This also boosts the confidence and self-esteem of the child, and thereby enhances their ability to learn fast.

 

4.                  Math around us approach:

 

Math is taught with concrete experiences leading to clarity in the abstract ideas in mathematics. This ensures better conceptual understanding and it also ensures that the students don’t get ‘scared’ or ‘bored’ of mathematics.
