DRS Kids provide 3C based education giving importance to character, competence, and content. The curriculum is designed and developed by MDN Edify Education. The objective of 3C is to encourage children to become independent learners, thus enabling them to explore the world through their own ways. The basis of 3C is scientific and the belief that every child is a potential learner and that contemporary learning has to nurture and educate children to be lifelong learners. In today’s world where information is available at the click of a button, children have to become knowledge assimilators and analyzers rather than just be a storehouse of information. The focus is on the application of knowledge through experimentation, research and discovery.
DRS Transdisciplinary curriculum is engaging, relevant, challenging and significant for the learners from the age group of 21/2 to 51/ 2.
We feel curriculum plays a bigger role in a child’s learning journey. It is vital because this is how children interact with learning on a daily basis. If a curriculum is engaging, the children’s interest can hook children into a topic that might not generally interest them. 3c curriculum engages the interests of children and involves them actively in their own learning.
Curriculum activating prior knowledge is important for student’s understanding, as it helps them make a connection to the new information. 3c Links students’ prior knowledge and experience, and current circumstances, and therefore placing learning in a context connected to the lives of the students.
Challenge is the core of developing minds. With the absence of challenge, children don’t take risks, don’t experience failures, and never figure out how to pick themselves up again. 3c incorporates challenge by extending children’s prior knowledge and experience to increase their competencies.
Students will only be fully engaged in the curriculum if they see a significant relation of their learning to their future. Students show much interest in the topic which helps them relate to both their past and future. 3C curriculum with its unique transdisciplinary themes helps children understand nature and then connect it to the commonality of human experiences.
