When it comes to early childhood education, providing the right support and guidance is essential. At Podar Prep Preschool, we’ve adopted the concept of Scaffolding and GRR (Gradual Release of Responsibility) as advocated in the National Curriculum Framework (NCF). This approach is designed to ensure that every child receives the support they need to succeed.
1. Scaffolding – Building a Strong Foundation
Scaffolding involves providing the necessary support, structure, and guidance during instruction. It’s like constructing a sturdy scaffold around a building under construction. We believe that every child’s educational journey should be built on a strong foundation.
2. Gradual Release of Responsibility (GRR)
The GRR process is the cornerstone of our teaching methodology. It involves three crucial steps:
Step 1: I do – In this initial phase, the teacher takes the lead. They demonstrate, explain, and model the main ideas or skills to the students. This sets the stage for understanding.
Step 2: We do – Next, the learning process becomes a collaborative effort. Teachers and children work together on grasping the ideas or skills. This step promotes active engagement and shared learning.
Step 3: You do – The final step is empowering the children. They’re encouraged to practise and work on their ideas or skills independently. This phase fosters self-reliance and confidence.
3. Supported Learning Pits (SLP)
Learning is an adventure filled with challenges, and we understand that every new concept can be confusing for young minds. That’s where our Supported Learning Pits come into play. Based on the Gradual Release of Responsibility, these pits ensure that children are provided with continuous support until their confusion is cleared, and they’re ready to tackle the activity on their own.
4. Unleashing Every Child’s Potential
At Podar Prep Preschool, we firmly believe that every child is a winner. Our approach, rooted in the NCF’s principles, guarantees that children receive the necessary guidance and mentorship to realise their potential for success. We understand that learning is not a one-size-fits-all process, and we’re committed to accommodating the unique needs and abilities of each child.
5. The Power of Parent-Teacher Partnership
Our success in nurturing young minds also relies on a robust partnership between parents and teachers. We encourage open communication and collaboration to ensure that every child’s educational journey is well-supported both in the classroom and at home.
At Podar Prep Preschool, we’re dedicated to providing a holistic learning experience that goes beyond textbooks. Our implementation of Scaffolding and the Gradual Release of Responsibility ensures that your child receives the right support at every stage of their educational journey, setting them on a path to lifelong success.
