Transformative, Child-Centred Preschool Education
Your child loves to ask “Why?” as soon as they are able to express themselves confidently. Driven by curiosity, children seek to explore the world from infancy. At no time in life is curiosity more powerful than in early childhood.
At Pegasus, our curriculum is focused on Inquiry-based learning where children start by formulating questions through interactions with their environment. At Pegasus, we begin this inquiry process by understanding the many questions children ask and allowing them to engage in intuitively exploring in their environment with their own senses.
Initiated by their interest, we engage our pre-schoolers to further explore various concepts creatively such as Language and literacy, Mathematics, Physical and Cognitive development etc. For a pre-schooler, we believe that a holistic approach has to be taken, which is why Pegasus places a strong emphasis on our children’s physical well-being, character building and their environmental consciousness.
Through the process of inquiry, children construct much of their understanding of the natural and human-designed worlds. Inquiry implies a “need or want to know” premise. Inquiry is not so much seeking the right answer — because often there is none — but rather seeking appropriate resolutions to questions and issues. In Pegasus, inquiry implies emphasis on the development of inquiry skills and the nurturing of inquiring attitudes or habits of mind that will enable children to continue the quest for knowledge throughout life.
