CHILDSTART PROGRAM

GENERAL ACADEMIC PROGRAM

The general education program recognizes that students have their own learning styles, strengths, and difficulties. Students come to school with combinations of unique and shared patterns of values, knowledge, and experience of the world and their place in it. By promoting open communication with understanding and respect, CSI encourages students to become active, compassionate, lifelong learners. The CSI education is holistic in nature—it is concerned with the whole person. Along with cognitive development, CSI programs address students’ social, emotional, and physical well-being. CSI values and offers opportunities for students to become active and caring members of local, national, and global communities. All these are concretized by CSI, following academic standards that are adapted from international curricula.

SPECIAL EDUCATION PROGRAM

While advanced individualized curriculum is beneficial for regular students, CSI also offers profound academic advantages for children who are gifted as well as for those with learning disabilities. As the learning process is centered on the student, it allows the learner to advance on his or her personal terms and not be restricted by or not have to try to catch up with the rest of the class. Furthermore, since all major subjects are individualized, a student’s specific academic strength or weakness can be quickly identified and acted upon while still allowing him/her to be part of a class of his same age or his peers.

Values Education

LIVING VALUES EDUCATION

Living Values Education (LVE) puts positive values at the hear of education. Believing that our role as a part of the education sector is not just to develop critical thinkers but also morally responsible individuals, we at CSI include in our curriculum this character development program, wherein we allot a whole school day of values-based learning for our students. Under our LVE program, students are guided through an exploration of their values and how they affect others and the larger society. By focusing on character-building and values formation, we are able to develop a safe learning environment and a culture of positive values among our learners, which enables us to contribute to building a safer society.

BRAIN BREAK

Brain breaks are mental breaks between learning tasks, which server as a mental reboot to restore the students’ focus and foster optimal mood and attention. Brain breaks may include creative activitiess such as doing a short role play, watching an entertaining video clip, singing a song together or simply stretching and moving to a different part of the room to revitalize the brain, Through providing our students enough mental breaks, we are able to optimize their learning experience and boost their overall creativity and productivity.

Learning Modalities

Childstart International adapts to the changes of the “new normal” to ensure the continuity of learning. CSI established a Learning Continuity Plan that will provide students quality education using various forms and learning modalities. It is designed to cater to all kinds of learners through the facilitation of different modes of learning and delivery.

Hybrid Learning

School Year 2022 - 2023

Hybrid Learning splits time between face-to-face learning and online learning. Hybrid Learning is more flexible since, in this modality, coursework is intentionally designed to be delivered online for specific activities and in-person for others. Students attend on-campus classes at designated times, especially for topics/courses and activities that require strict monitoring and guidance from the teacher. Then, to limit interactions, some of the lessons will still be conducted online, which may be synchronous or asynchronous.

Online Learning

Teaching and learning will be both asynchronous and synchronous. There will be times when students will meet with teachers online for class discussions as a group and one on one. There will also be times when students will work at home with the assistance of their parents.

1. Synchronous Session – Students are given Interactive virtual/online classes, which are facilitated by specific subject teachers through Online Video Conferencing.

2. Asynchronous Session – Students are given time to work on their task/s online or offline independently while the teachers remain online and available at specific time for consultation.

Face-to-Face Learning

This learning modality involves regular in-person meetings between teachers and students for the delivery of course content and learning materials.
