"Union Minister for Education and Skill Development Dharmendra Pradhan launches National Curriculum Framework for children from ages 3 years to 8 years."
Union Minister for Education and Skill Development Dharmendra Pradhan successful launches NCF (National Curriculum Framework) 2022. Amongst the most transformative aspects of this is the new 5+3+3+4 curricular structure where children will spend five years in the Foundational stage, 3 years in the Preparatory stage, 3 years in the Middle stage, and 4 years in the Secondary stage, according to the new school education system outlined in NEP 2020. Balvatika Classes for students in the age groups of 3+, 4+ and 5+ years of age are being introduced in a set of 49 Kendriya Vidyalayas.
The minister added that this new framework would help equip young ones with the cognitive & linguistic competencies of the 21st century. It is said that brain development is most rapid in the first eight years of a child's life, which points out the utmost importance of socio-economical and cognitive stimulation in the early years.
85% of the child’s cumulative brain development happens before age 6. Henceforth, giving them proper care to stimulate their brain and encourage their physical and emotional development is of utmost importance for all children.
Will NCF 2022 Uplift Children's Education at the Foundational Stage?
At the foundational stage, there are three fundamental objectives for a child's holistic development. The first is to develop good health and understanding, the second is to develop colloquial proficiency, and the third is to develop an attitude for continuous knowledge intake.
These objectives have been prioritised at the basic level of the national curriculum framework 2022. The curriculum will include stories, games, and other activities to allow for their full development. Provision has been made in the Foundational Stage framework for the children to have adequate free time.
This is why, with the exception of Mathematics, no class will last more than 30 minutes. During this time, the majority of the children's education will be done by connecting them with various activities that will be interesting and quick to learn.
The National Curriculum Framework (NCF) is based on the traditional Indian pedagogical theory of 'Panchkosha Vikas.' The emphasis will be on the children's physical, vital, mental, intellectual, and consciousness faculties.
