Aravali Global Foundation Launches India’s First Scientifically Guided Finnish Home-schooling Programme for Parents in Early Years on International Women’s Day
Aravali Global Foundation, an education group with 2 decades of experience, has joined hands with HEI Schools, an international preschool licensing model from Finland, to curate LEADZ (Learning at Your Doorstep for Millennials), India’s First scientifically guided Finnish Home-schooling programme.
LEADZ is thefirst-of-its-kind, Indio-Finnish collaboration with the vision to empower parents by enabling organised everyday experiences for their children (0 to 6 years) that will scientifically have the maximum positive impact on their holistic development.
An extensive research-based programme catering to early childcare has been designed to ensure a child’s continuous development under four key verticals: Express, Explore, Understand and Practice, along with aiding the parents through their journey of parenthood by providing parental assistance and community engagement.
The programme has been developed according to the guiding principles of whole brain development, DISC personality quotients, domains of knowledge, cosmopolitan notions, neurocognitive approach, curriculum domains and multiple intelligences.
With easy accessibility, the programme can be used anytime, anywhere using the website or through the app available both on android and iOS. The app has eight entry points divided in accordance with three age groups: Tiny Tots (0 to 2 years), Eager Explorers (2 to 4 years) and Lively Learners (4 to 6 years).
Speaking to officials, Harshvardhan Bhadana, the Managing Director for LEADZ said, “Our endeavour is to ensure that every child develops in a wholesome manner and to empower every parent with the power, comfort and access to do so. This shall not only help them to enable the growth and development of the child in a scientifically backed manner, but LEADZ will lead them on a journey of parental empowerment and satisfaction.”
He further adds, “The LEADZ programme has been designed to bring the excellence of globally acclaimed Finnish early childhood education available at the click of a button from the comfort of their homes. Incorporating the latest research and advances in early education the programme is aimed at the holistic development of a child’s social, emotional, cognitive and physical needs in order to build a solid foundation for lifelong learning and wellbeing.”
The Content Head of LEADZ, Dr. Madhuri Parti, said, “Focused extensively on self-exploration and self-expression, every academic plan at LEADZ is aimed at providing guided modules that will give autonomy to our young minds to sit back in the comfort and security of the parent’s lap and enjoy the moments of fabrications. I am so glad to be associated with this programm and its deliberate launch on International Women’s Day is our way of dedicating our creation to empower parents all around the world, to give them a sense of self confidence in their times of self-doubt as a parent. LEADZ goes beyond learning, it leads to the holistic development of the child.”
The LEADZ App has been available for download from 8 March 2021.
It may be noted that Aravali Foundation for Education (AFE) is an organisation dedicated to creating a civil society that is conscious of the problem of (and possible solutions to) the steady degradation of earth’s unique ability to provide various forms of life with a livable habitat.
AFE believes that a school is created to provide a space to a child to have fun, learn various things and explore the five senses and the nav-rasas that make up our lives. School is also a place where one generation passes its accumulated knowledge, skills, values and traditions to the next generation.
Set up in October 2004, AFE strives to achieve its mandate by designing and implementing innovative programmes aimed at bridging the information divide that exists between the world of conservation research and the civil society on one hand, and between conservation research and the policy making establishment on the other.
AFE proactively seeks to bring together institutions from diverse fields of education, conservation, science and business on a common platform to work together and enhance human and institutional capabilities for addressing environmental concerns.
Headquartered at New Delhi, AFE has field offices in Kullu (Himachal Pradesh), Sirmaur (Himachal Pradesh) and Jodhpur (Rajasthan).
