SmartK – NCERT Based Early Years Curriculum

S Chand Group launches SmartK, an NCERT based early years curriculum, which stems from the need to provide quality education to children to enhance their learning experience. It provides all the teaching-learning resources thereby easing the work pressure of teachers.

SmartK is an age-appropriate curriculum for 2.5 to 6-year-old, and follows a ‘preschool in a box’ approach. Post subscription, preschool will receive a thematic child kit and a teacher kit that will include all the essential components for executing the curriculum.

The core of this thematic, play and activity-based curriculum are children and teachers. Learning and developmental domains are central to the SmartK curriculum. These assist in building knowledge as well as inculcating values and life skills among children. The curriculum provides opportunities for children to choose, create, comprehend, organise, evaluate and collaborate with their peers during the learning process.

The curriculum has been designed for the following levels:

Readiness 2.5 to 3 years 6 monthly theme boxes
120 Lesson plans
Level 1 3 to 4 years 10 monthly theme boxes
