At Podar Prep, we believe in the power of holistic learning, especially when it comes to subjects like maths that are traditionally viewed as challenging. Our unique approach to early childhood education goes beyond rote learning, focusing instead on teaching maths using the Concrete-Pictorial-Abstract (CPA) approach to teaching and learning that is hands-on, playful and child-centric.
Maths is not just about memorising facts and figures; it’s about grasping what those numbers represent in the real world. This philosophy is at the heart of Podar Prep’s curriculum for kids, particularly in how we teach maths. We use a variety of teaching–learning resources which supports children to think and communicate mathematically.
Take, for example, the use of Number Tiles in our classrooms. When children use these colourful tiles to create arrays for addition & subtraction, they do more than just count; they visualise mathematical concepts. This hands-on experience with physical objects helps them understand abstract ideas like quantity and number relationships in a tangible way.
This method of teaching is a perfect example of child development and parenting coming together in harmony as children also engage in maths activities using the Number Magic Home Play Kit at home with their parents. Parents often notice that their children start to understand and apply mathematical concepts more naturally and quickly when they learn through play. This approach aligns with the principles of positive parenting, where learning is a joyful and engaging process.
Being the best preschool in India, we focus on toddler education that prepares children for the future in a way that respects and nurtures their natural learning processes. Our child-centric education model ensures that every child’s individual needs and learning styles are catered to, fostering a love for learning that lasts a lifetime.
In conclusion, Podar Prep’s play pedagogy is not just a teaching method; it’s a way to ensure that children grow up understanding the world around them meaningfully. It’s about making learning fun, interactive, and relevant. As we guide our young learners through their educational journey, we remain committed to nurturing curious, confident, and capable individuals ready to take on the world.
