About This Course

The world is changing, advancing and moving faster than ever. There are new developments in every field almost every day, and in order to truly progress, a professional in every discipline needs to 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 not only learn the new information, the latest methods and pedagogies but also ensure that they make their classroom experience innovative and effective. This makes it 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 as learners as well as teachers. KIE was established to address this need and bridge this gap.

Aim of the course

  • 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 so that our trainees become reflective, innovative individuals.
  • To provide learner-centric, reflective, quality teacher education.
  • To create professional teacher communities for creation, transfer, and sharing of knowledge.

Post-graduate Diploma in Early Childhood Education

A child learns more than just the basics such as the alphabet and numbers in pre-school. At that age, children get their first experience with the world that exists outside their previously small world consisting of their house. This is also the time that children develop their motor skills as well as their social skills by interacting with new things, toys and people. A teacher who aspires to be an early childhood educator must be skilled at managing children. However, it is equally important to be aware of the developmental needs of young children to provide the best education.

Objectives of the course

  • To encourage and enable 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.
