The philosophy of Reach is an amalgamation of the EYES (Early Years Foundation Stage ),Cambridge Primary and Reggio Amelia learning approach .An inquiring approach to learning is followed that encourages students to think and question .The curriculum is rigorous ,creative and stretches students to their full intellectual potential .It develops a sense of identity in students through knowledge of their cultural heritage ,values and society along with an understanding of the global world .It equips students to recognize their responsibilities not just as the citizens of their own country but as citizens of the world.
Intelligence is the process of dealing with the world and coming to know it!
-Jean Piaget (Developmental Psychologist)
It is our belief that childhood is a time for fun, warmth, security, exploration and discovery. This belief is reflected in the Reach Programme for Early Years at LACAS. Our Curriculum provides opportunities for children to take responsibility, make decisions, learn through play, develop self-worth and nurture creativity. This hands-on, interactive, technology-integrated learning programme provides a comprehensive approach to building cognitive, social, emotional, physical and language skills in our children.
Reach Curriculum Framework for Playgroup, Pre-Reception and Reception develops skills in the domains of communications, language and literacy, mathematics, knowledge and understanding of the world, music and movement, visual arts, dramatic play and physical education.
The different elements of the Reach Curriculum are tied together through a theme based approach whereby the various domains of curriculum are integrated through a theme. Each Reach classroom enhances students’ learning through well-equipped Learning Centers which offer a rich variety of spaces, materials and activities especially organised to promote active exploration and mastery.
The three year Reach Programme aims at providing high quality, developmentally appropriate education. It strives to develop independent thinkers and lifelong learners equipped with the skill set crucial to their success in the coming years.
