Education

Cambridge Early Years Education program is a special feature for pre-primary classes in Douglas Memorial Higher Secondary School.

With the Cambridge education curriculum, students get to focus more on activity-based education which enriches their overall growth.

We believe that the early years are the most crucial years for the kids, hence, we ensure a very practical method of study that allows adequate knowledge with more emphasis on value-based learning.

The curriculum proposed by Cambridge Early Years has a very different approach compared to the traditional system of studies. It is more inclusive, collaborative and progressive allowing space for the children to grow through their creativity and curiosity.

The programme builds on these key principles:

  • Experience
    Learning should complement the social and cultural factors (like experiences of home and community) that shape a child’s learning and development.
  • Active
    Children should be involved in their own learning through well-planned experiences that help them develop competence, agency, emotional attachment and self-worth.
  • BalanceLearning should encourage an appropriate balance of physical, cognitive, language and communications, and social and emotional development.
  • Play
    Learning should be age-appropriate, play-based and child-centred. It should include both child-and adult-led activities.
  • Transition
    Early years education should help children transition successfully to primary school, moving from informal, play-based learning to teaching that is more formal.
