Curriculum

At Keykidz we have developed a distinct curriculum that is designed to nurture our children and guide them to become responsible and happy global human beings. The Keykidz curriculum is woven around 5 KEY elements of child’s growth:

Intellectual

Our curriculum encourages children to explore, and challenges their capabilities in multiple ways. It helps children develop and expand their intellectual capabilities and grow into independent and competent individuals. They learn to observe, analyse, reason, judge and communicate their thoughts freely

Emotional

We focus on working together with children to help them understand and accept their unique identities. They learn to work on their strengths and enjoy being self. They also understand their areas of improvement and learn to readily work upon the same.

Creative

The Keykidz curriculum allows children to be free to explore, choose, and express. All ideas are always welcome and encouraged. This instills confidence in children about their thinking capabilities and develops them into confident and creative individuals.

Social

Children get multiple opportunities to interact and communicate with others and in the process develop confidence, positive self esteem and social skills. They make friends and learn to accept and respect others.

Physical

Children are given ample time and space to develop their gross motor skills. Exercise and yoga are an integral part of child’s daily routine at KeyKidz. This helps them grow into healthy, alert and focused individuals.

Programs

KeyKidz Preschool program is modeled upon the latest early childhood practices. The program is designed to encourage the child to learn rather than be taught. The program caters to the learning and developmental requirements of children of varied age groups
