The excellent benefits of developmentally appropriate care and stimulation during the early childhood years has been well established in the past few decades through in-depth research in neuroscience. Prior to the age of 6 is a sensitive period for the optimal development of the brain cortex.
Yet, in India, the Early Childhood Education has had highly insufficient focus on quality, especially for children growing up in low-income communities both in government-run Anganwadis and private-run preschools. India’s National Educational Policy released in the year 2020 has strongly emphasised the need for flexible, multi-faceted, multi-level, play-based, activity based and inquiry based learning.
Tejasvita’s preschool program addresses this very issue. Having worked in both in Anganwadis and Affordable Private schools since 2014, we’ve created a high-quality, research-based and developmentally-appropriate curriculum for preschool children in low income communities that uses high-impact learning processes where all children can develop and progress holistically.
We partner with affordable private schools serving low income communities and conduct our program in their preschool classrooms 3 days a week during the morning hours. We implement a holistic curriculum spanning the four broad areas – English speaking and comprehension, Social and Emotional development, Pre-reading and Pre-numeracy and Creative expression. The curriculum content and implementation processes are play-based and are designed to nurture the joy of learning in children.

Learning Outcomes from our Preschool programs
Our preschool program has been proven to increase children’s attention span, interest in learning, social-emotional skills, conversational English skills and pre-literacy and pre-numeracy skills. Following are a few of our Learning Outcomes Reports which show these results.
- Learning outcomes from two years of collated data (2018-19 and 2019-20)
- Learning outcomes report – 2019-20
