Having a natural flair for teaching is great. But having scientific, time-tested methodologies is even better.
At Sunbird, we combine three respected methodologies to ensure that your child gets the best learning through the method that most suits him. Our dedicated team of teachers ensures that we find the method that works for your child and thereby make his early learning more fun and better.
Here’s a short introduction to each of the methods we use.
This system of education is both a philosophy of child development and a rationale for guiding such growth. It is based on two important developmental needs of children:
1. The need for freedom within limits
2. A carefully prepared environment which guarantees exposure to materials and experiences.
We have integrated many Montessori methods into Sunbird’s curriculum and it has yielded amazing results in the children’s co-ordination and decision-making skills.
The Glenn Doman Education
This is an innovative and provocative way of learning. Through extensive studies, Glenn Doman suggests that sight-reading, encyclopedic knowledge and math values can be learned from the tender age of 10 months. In order to achieve early learning, kinesthetic ability is vital. With the use Sunbird’s unique “Brachiation Tool”, our little ones have achieved better coordination and stamina. Applying this method has achieved that young minds learned to recognize parts of the above mentioned academic lessons by the age of 3-4.
The Multi Intelligence Theory
The theory of Multiple Intelligence was proposed by Dr. Howard Gardner . There exists a multitude of intelligences, quite independent of each other; that each intelligence has its own strengths and constraints:
• Logical-mathematical intelligence (number/reasoning smart)
• Spatial intelligence (picture smart)
• Bodily-kinaesthetic intelligence (body smart)
• Musical intelligence (music smart)
• Interpersonal intelligence (people smart)
• Intrapersonal intelligence (self smart)
• Naturalist intelligence (nature smart)
• Linguistic (language smart)
Since it is Sunbird’s aim to provide well-rounded education, we have woven the above mentioned methods into our curricula for the children from two to four years old, with impressive all-round progress.
More than teaching, it’s learning
Along with the above mentioned features, Sunbird also promotes character building values that are stressed at every opportunity. Audio-Visual Aids are used to be supportive ‘role models’ for the little ones.
For most children starting school is difficult, moving from familiar surroundings to an activity hub with unknown folks. Many little ones are also used to morning naps. However we have found that by combining the above mentioned curricula, even the most shy and reticent tots are soon intrigued by the environment full of activities. Within a week or two, they develop a keen interest to join in on all the activities and learning – and the fun begins!
