MANY children suffer as they face realities of the greater world despite their talent and some knowledge. Added to that in Bangladesh is the struggle many job entrants have in coping with new challenges. In a global context, even grown-up people grapple with unforeseen problems of life.
So, inspiring young minds to be receptive to learning, play and a growth mindset is essential for brain development. It contributes vastly to a child’s social, emotional, cognitive, and physical well-being.
In the last three decades, numerous scientific types of research have shown that the most crucial time in an individual’s development is from the birth to the age of eight years.
During these vital years, young people should be provided with opportunities to learn about the world and explore their surroundings through play- and inquiry-based learning.
The curriculum encourages open-mindedness and curiosity among youngsters. We do not want young learners to be merely fed information; instead, we want our children to explore and experiment with hands-on learning activities. As a result, children are not indifferent bystanders; they can play essential roles in their own learning and progress. Therefore, the curriculum promotes children’s natural curiosity.
A growth mindset is a credence that talent, capability, and learning potential can develop over time. With the help of proper tools, most of us use the growth mindset to gain expertise in new skills.
However, young people who have actively matured their growth mindset from early childhood are placed to succeed in life as adults for numerous reasons — they will be confident in their capabilities to learn, they will understand ways to build upon erstwhile knowledge, they have routed the skills of questioning, theorising, and testing conclusions, they have open mindsets and obtain new information, and they would understand the fact that there will always be someone who will know more.by
