About us

Our Vision is to provide an environment that enables every child to have opportunities to learn and enable all round development. The children are encouraged to question, explore, investigate and acquire skills that will make them learners for life.

The Child's play is his purpose at that moment. They prefer to work in a group or explore individually depending on their needs. Such an attitude will be nurtured and their preference will be respected. This a place where we identify every child as a unique individual. We believe, by giving them plenty of opportunities to look for partners or group of peers to accomplish their task, enhances their social skills.

" Teach the child to repeat what you say
He may do it for half a day
Give the child some books to peek
He may look at them for a week
Observe the child and entice him to play
With the right tools explore each way
See him discover, learn and labour
Watch him enjoy learning every hour !“

Philosophy

BIRDS OF VARIOUS FEATHERS
All the fledglings finished their education at Flock school and left for their respective destinations. “It has been a good year,” thought Guruji, “I am going to miss all of them”.
The parrot and eagle took off from the floor of the forest together. The eagle soared high in the sky, and the parrot was left behind in no time. The Guru's assistant remarked, “Look how sad it is that the parrot is left behind. Even after so much teaching, he has not learnt enough”.
The guru smiled. He told his assistant, “Learn to observe, do not see only what you want to see.” After a while, he went to visit his students with his assistant.
The parrot was in its element. It had found a grove with some fruit trees. It found other parrots and birds to live with. The parrot was blissful having found a green environment, food to eat, company, safety, everything it wanted.
The eagle had to search for quite a while for food, but eventually learnt to find some rats to eat. It built a nest far from the madding crowds and was happy to settle down in the peaks of some hills all by itself, lording over the world.
Said the guru, “Everyone is happy in his own space. One could be a nightingale, brilliant at singing, the other an ostrich, a fast runner. To a small extent the eagle and falcon can ape each other, the cuckoo and nightingale can compete at different ways of singing. But even they are different from each other. There is enough space for all in this vast world.”
“The observer must understand and appreciate that each of these birds is different. He could try to make the nightingale sing better, or help the falcon fly faster. He must NOT try and convert parrots to eagles or vice versa. This will take away the child's inherent talent/ interests and end up frustrating him in trying to compete in a direction that he may never enjoy or be adept at.” It is every teacher’s duty is to

  • Make all children independent, after all every bird has to find its own food
  • Recognize and understand the children’s strengths and weaknesses
  • Teach every child to work hard

Teach them to fly in their interest zones and they will attain towering heights and go on the path to achievement & happiness

The Origin

WHERE WE STARTED
Every child has an inherent nature and intelligence that is peculiar to him. This varies from child to child and is the most important factor to consider when the child comes to school.
Early experiences have the greatest impact on the developing brain. A balanced approach to emotional, social, cognitive, and language development will best prepare children for success in school and later in the workplace.

  • To help teachers evaluate and assess constantly, and implement any corrective action if required

TYPICAL SITUATIONS IN PRESCHOOLS
Having worked with preschools, Montessori houses of children and several institutions working with children in their early years, we have come across several common issues/problems/ situations that most of the institutions face:

  • In a preschool (that is not following a prescribed method like Montessori, Waldorf etc) there is usually a lack of a structured curriculum. These are typically “play-way” schools
  • In the event of having a structured curriculum, which could be drafted out by the owner / administrator of the school or by an external academic expert, there is no clear implementation tool.

a. Eg If the curriculum says “child must be introduced to the concept of quantity sequencing” the teacher will have to look for a tool that will help a 3 year old understand the concept

  • Most preschool curricula do not address an individual child’s needs. They are formulated on group principles.
  • The curriculum usually does not include tools for evaluation of a child’s progress.
  • Most preschools have a problem with retraining new teachers. There is no mechanism for the new teachers to continue where the old ones have stopped

Preschool Solution

  • To run a successful preschool, one requires a state of the art curriculum that covers all aspects of the child’s all round development. Kreedo has incorporated best practices from several early childhood philosophies drawing especially from the Montessori method (in practice) and the Multiple Intelligences (in theory) proposed by Howard Gardner in devising the comprehensive solution. The curriculum emphasizes the key areas of development in the child in the spheres of Senso-motor, Personality, Language, Cognitive and Creative skills. Within each area, we have identified specific development objectives to be met for each child undergoing preschool education as part of our curriculum. The curriculum has been developed with inputs from early childhood educators, school owners, special educators, preschool teachers, Montessorians and more over a period of 2-3 years before it has come to fruition. The curriculum also gives a clear timetable in terms of what needs to be done throughout the year in terms of activities and themes. Shown below is an illustration of the main focus areas of the curriculum that we term the "Learning Tree".

With the curriculum in place, the next important question that comes to mind is how the curriculum will be implemented. In a preschool, one cannot teach with traditional mechanisms such as "Blackboards" or only through books or only through audio visuals. Children need to work with materials and learn and only by exercising their hands and senses, their brain development happens faster. Hence, the curriculum is implemented through more than 160 materials and 40 furniture items. Since the materials have been designed keeping the curriculum objectives in mind, there is a tight connection between the materials and the curriculum ensuring that the objectives are met while children work with them. These materials are not toys, but are educational aids which have specific learning objectives built into the way they are designed and used. The curriculum also incorporates thematic approaches apart from working with materials ensuring that the child understands the world around him through these themes.
Since the materials provided with the curriculum have specific objectives, they can only be met when the children work with them with them in a particular manner. Hence the presentation of the materials becomes very important. The role of the adult / teacher in the preschool comes in this context where they need to ensure that the materials are presented appropriately to the child. The adult needs to “direct” the child in the usage of the materials. But, the teachers themselves need to be trained on the presentation of the materials to the child. Hence, the package includes a teacher training module which is a multimedia software where objectives of each of the activities using the materials is explained as well as a detailed teacher training video is shown. The adults need to view the presentation of each of the activities and ensure that the materials are presented to the child in the same way ensuring that the materials meet the objectives set in the curriculum. The videos are also arranged month-wise which gives a clear perspective of when the materials have to be presented and in what order.

he fourth main component to ensure the success of the preschool education is proper child assessment and evaluation. To ensure that every child meets the development objectives laid down as part of the preschool curriculum, the adults need to play the role of “Observers” in the classroom and ensure they record everything that the child does. The adult needs to continuously evaluate the levels on which the activities are being done by each child and record it regularly in a child-evaluation software that is provided by us along with the package. The software has built-in benchmarks and other algorithms that provides the preschool owner and adults in the classroom on how each of the child is progressing, where the child’s strengths lie and where the child’s interest are. This also provides a backbone for a constructive feedback to the parents on the overall development of the child.
