Our Curriculum

  • Theory of Multiple Intelligences

    The curriculum of Growing Tots is based on the Multiple Intelligence Theory proposed by Harvard University Professor of Education, Dr. Howard Gardner in 1983. This theory proposes there are eight different kinds of intelligences which are present in each individual in varying proportions. The curriculum focuses on overall development of all intelligences through play.

    A closer look at the Multiple Intelligence Theory

    This kind of intelligence is seen in children through their drawings, paintings,response to colours and shapes etc. A child with strong visual-spatial intelligence may grow up to be in a creative field like graphic design, architecture etc. 

  • Word Smart: Verbal-Linguistic Intelligence

    A child with this kind of intelligence as dominant will often start speaking early. The child will be able to pick up multiple languages and may later join fields related to language, literature and public speaking.

  • Body Smart: Body-Kinesthetic Intelligence

  • The environment and activities are conducive for your child’s in born potential to shine through while making sure other intelligences are also developed simultaneously. It is important to understand that no child fits into only one or two categories because each person is imbued with each of these intelligences, although some children may have a particular intelligence which is dominant. Still, it is possible to develop each type of intelligence to ensure an overall and holistic development of your child.
