The curriculum followed at Brain-e-kids is developed by professionals and experts of international repute. The curriculum ensures that children are given a holistic experience leading to a strong holistic development. The developmental milestones achieved at a young age lay the foundation for further education. The curriculum entails learning experiences that prepare them for life itself.
As per the constructivist theory developed by piaget it is believed that learning cannot be delivered or imprinted. An individual constructs his or her own learning based on personal experiences.
The entry point approach believes that a subject can be learned through not just one but five methods. The five important learning methods for a particular topic are aesthetic, narrative, logical or quantitative, foundational and experiential. Simply put, a topic or subject can be learned by listening, seeing or experiencing.
Brain-e-kids uses technology-based learning tools such as story books, audio books, videos and toys. The inclusion of technology based teaching tools helps children select their experience and entry point of a topic while learning it with peers.

Relevance : As the first step to the lesson, the topic at hand is made the theme of the day and kids are asked to draw from their experiences, to enable them to establish an individual relation alongside the collective experience within the class.
Analysis : Children delve deeper into the details of the topic at hand, helping them understand its nature and essential features.
Skill development : Children develop topical skills ranging from phonics to art exercises to help understand the nuances of the subject from a different perspective.
Interlinking : Children ponder over and establish various connections with topics learned earlier and other experiences.
Probing and reflection : Facilitator probes children to fathom their understanding of the topic and help them think over the essence of it.
Action : Children are urged to participate in an activity that links all the above steps of learning in the curriculum.
Awareness : Children are introduced to the correlation of the topic and the world at large. For playtime, a wide variety of play equipments is available. The children can get engaged in group games, rhythmic movements and gardening lessons facilitated by the teacher. The younger ones spend time expressing themselves through art or exploration activities. The older ones indulge in literary and mathematical activities that involve playing with letters, words and numbers. They are familiarized with skills like matching, discriminating, patterning, sequencing, sorting, ordering, classifying and problem solving.
The snack time is taken as an opportunity to emphasize upon good health and hygiene habits. The teacher is equipped with a chart that lists each child’s individual needs and allergies, if any. While eating, the teacher and children have a light conversation about the food (its taste, smell, color, texture, healthy versus junk, etc.) or talk about plans for the weekend, an upcoming event, a new addition to a family. Some days are allotted as ‘no gas cooking days’, wherein the teacher and the class cook a delicious and nutritious snack.
