About

Kaveri Institute of Education

The world is changing, advancing and moving faster than ever. There are new developments in every field almost daily. In order to truly progress, a professional in every discipline must be a student for life. Education has now become an even bigger discipline in itself.

It has rightly been said that a good teacher is also a good learner. Today, teachers must take in new information, incorporate the latest methods and pedagogies and also ensure that they make their classroom experience innovative and effective. This makes it absolutely essential for teachers to learn methods and techniques that help them become innovative educators.

Today, we feel a gap between theory and practice, between what is in the books and what is needed in the classroom in the roles of learners as well as teachers. KIE was established to address this need and bridge this gap.

Aims and Objectives

  • To inculcate robust beliefs and attitudes in the teacher trainees toward teachers, children and education in general.
  • To provide enriching field experiences and exposure to new trends in education to facilitate our trainees to become reflective, innovative individuals.
  • To provide learner-centric, reflective, quality teacher education.
  • To create professional teacher communities for creation, transfer, and sharing of knowledge.

COURSE NAME

Post-graduate Diploma in Early Childhood Education

Introduction to the course

A child’s development is very rapid during early childhood. At this formative age, children get their first experiences with the world that exists outside their homes. A child learns more than just the basics such as the alphabet and numbers in pre-school. This is also the time that children develop various abilities and skills that they would require for interactions with new people, things and situations. An enriching environment nourishes the different aspects of development namely – physical, motor, language, cognitive, emotional and social.

A teacher who aspires to be an early childhood educator must be skilled at managing children and planning these enriching experiences. The teacher must be aware of the developmental needs of young children to achieve the goal of providing the best learning environment.

Objectives of the course

  • To encourage and facilitate teachers to develop the necessary skills required to become better and more effective Early Childhood Educators.
  • To facilitate a deeper understanding of the developmental needs of children through the study of Early Childhood Education which is based on child psychology and paedogogy.
  • To help trainees implement the early childhood methodology in classrooms by providing feedback and support.
