Our Curriculum

A socio-constructivist approach

At Alpha Core, curriculum development has two key influences. The first is the constructivist theory of children's learning and development, where the individuality of children is emphasised, and teachers must constantly adjust their methods to accommodate the learning process for each child within the curriculum framework. Children are seen as active participants in their learning. They develop theories about the natural world, and are encouraged to test their ideas in real world settings. The second is the emphasis on culture and what actually takes place in an educational environment. Known as socio-cultural constructivism, this approach is highly relevant in a multicultural society and will help the children develop international-mindedness.

The core curriculum comprises of three components
