Cambridge International & Cambridge University Press have launched a new ‘Cambridge Early Years’ programme in India. Cambridge Early Years gives children aged 3 to 6 a solid foundation as they start their educational journey. It is designed specially to meet the needs of young learners in India and is based on international best practice.
Abigail Barnett, Deputy Director, Curriculum Programmes, Cambridge International said: “We have designed the new Cambridge Early Years programme thinking about overall development of the child. We have focused not just on developing literacy and numeracy, but also creativity, social emotional development and physical development. The program helps children to act independently and develop as individuals by giving them the freedom and opportunity to fire their imagination, spark their interest, and ignite their curiosity about the world.”
The programme is in-line with the New Education Policy (NEP) 2020 and offers a rounded approach that focuses on physical, cognitive, language and communication and social and emotional development. Teaching and learning is play-based and child-centred and builds learners’ skills and confidence in key developmental areas. The programme provides a solid foundation that young students can build on as they progress in their education. It prepares children for transition to primary school across educational boards, helping them move from play-based learning to more formal learning.
In addition to this, Cambridge Early Years centres have access to a range of fun resources that provide engaging activities and are aligned with the curriculum. Teachers have the flexibility to select resources to suit their learners and context.
