The 21st century skill-based education we preach and practice
UN has defined the 4 skills – Collaboration, Creativity, Critical Thinking and Communication as the 21st century skills. At Foundree, we focus on these and many more. Our syllabus is designed to make the little ones future-ready with 20 important real-life skills like Scientific Thinking, Musical Ability, Problem Solving, Algorithmic Thinking, and Critical Thinking. Simultaneously, we also give a lot of importance to Socio Emotional Skills such as Patience, Empathy, Perseverance, Executive Function and Self-Regulation to help them grow into a kind and empathetic adult.
Each skill is based on a learning arc, and the Foundree curriculum has 22 learning arcs.
Creators Arc: It focuses on making products with hands (crafting) at lower levels and minds (coding) at higher levels.
Global Citizen Arc: It gives the little ones exposure to different cultures, builds understanding of global issues and inculcates empathy.
Bodily Arc: It aims at developing gross motor skills.
Rather than age or grades, our classrooms are organized by different skill stations that represent different 21st century skills and learning arcs, to provide an immersive learning experience.
