EFFECTIVENESS OF CURRICULUM IN THE PHASE OF EARLY CHILDHOOD EDUCATION

KOLA KIRAN KUMAR, DR. SANTOSH JAGWANI

Abstract

Early childhood education (ECE) is a branch of education theory which relates to the teaching of young children (formally and informally) up until the age of about eight. The quality of the early childhood education a child receives has a direct impact on positive child development. Many different “curricula” or teaching approaches can create an enriched learning environment for children. A curriculum should reflect current research on child development and it should include specific learning goals for children. To ensure optimal development for all children, there is a need to create a planned curriculum framework, encompassing developmentally appropriate knowledge and skills, with flexibility for contextualization. A curriculum framework is also required to ensure that important learning areas are covered, taking care of all the developmental needs of the young child.
