Chatrabhuj Narsee School at Kandivali is now a fully authorized Cambridge Early Years Centre. In fact, we are one of less than 20 schools in the country who have been authorized by Cambridge Assessment International Education (CAIE) to run this programme.

Cambridge Early Years Programme, for children aged three years to six years, is a holistic curriculum aided by a wide range of assessment approaches. This supports the children to become confident, responsible, reflective, innovative and engaged learners, which go a long way in building and strengthening the child’s feelings of competence, emotional attachment and self-worth.

As a Cambridge Early Years Centre, our students, our parents and our faculty will benefit by:

Our uniquely prepared child centric environment supports our children to develop physical, cognitive, communication, social and emotional aspects of development through Language and Literacy, Creative expression, Math, Thematic and Physical development. The exclusive design of the classrooms coupled with engaging classroom resources help the children to make their own choices in a play-based modus and arouse the child’s curiosity. This hugely aids the process of developing their knowledge, understanding and acquiring skills that they need to make the best possible start in life. Our teachers offer the tenderness, warmth and patience essential at this age. In this surrounding, the children are encouraged to chart their own progress and celebrate their achievements including everyday accomplishments like responding to instructions, packing their bags, eating independently, sharing and working together in a team. Through these joyful, and tried and tested learning opportunities for every child, we lay the foundation for important lessons that each child at Chatrabhuj Narsee School learns.

Hands on experiences supporting the young children’s development of concentration, coordination, order and independence whilst refining their fine motor skills.

Art- develops learning skills like cutting, drawing, painting and collage.

Sensorial activities- help them explore the world through all five senses. This hones key concepts like recognition of shapes and colours and discrimination of size.

Understanding the world -Supports the children’s fascination about the world and generates a love for learning of different traditions, cultures and food.

Science- children learn about the different classifications and well as perform science experiments aided by the teacher.

Language and literacy- listening, speaking and singing based activities make learning language fun and support the development of pre-reading skills such as patterning, classifying and sequencing. Children also learn the phonetic sounds that each letter makes through songs.
Reading and Writing – Reading is supported partly with phonetics and partly through picture memory of high-frequency words. There is a variety of reading material available and found in the reading corners and listening stations.

Math- consists of counting and quantity, number recognition, graphing, fractions, money and time apart from learning the four basic mathematical operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division)
