EuroKids, the pre-school specialist and largest education service provider in the pre-school segment, has introduced a fresh new approach to pre-primary education with the launch of Curriculum Version 5.0, which places emphasis on integration and correlation of content matter, along with usage of technology for instruction that will contribute to the comprehensive overall development of a child. Curriculum Version 5.0 was unveiled at a function on March 27, by Anita Madan, Head of Academics, Eurokids in Chennai.

Completing a decade of working with children in the age groups one to six, Eurokids keeps focus on providing children and parents with a strong foundation to early education – with a huge deal of fun, games, love and laughter.

In today's dynamic environment, there is an urgent need to move beyond academics and also focus on the finer aspects of a child's personality development. The new curriculum is aimed at meeting these precise needs. In addition to building intellectual capabilities, it will empower children with the right social and emotional skills that enable them to become successful global citizens.

In early 2010, EuroKids launched a research across 20 cities and towns aimed at tracking and understanding the capabilities of young children and gauging increasing expectations and aspirations of parents and teachers in the context of early childcare and education. The research covered 120 EuroKids Pre-School owners, 200 pre-primary teachers, 18 academic coordinators, six Cerebrum core team members, existing and prospective parents and included observation of over 3,000 existing students.

The new curriculum, based on the teaching-learning model and promoting creative self-directed learning, will be rolled out across all 780+ EuroKids Preschool centers in 280 towns and cities. Since EuroKids caters to Tier 2 and Tier 3 cities as well, the benefits of the well researched curriculum will reach the children from diverse socio-economic backgrounds across India.
