The National Curriculum Framework (NCF) for the Foundational Stage is created based on the National Education Policy (NEP) 2020’s vision and is the only NCF released till date out of the scheduled four. This foundational stage framework will support the implementation of the NEP 2020 vision. Across the schools, children between the ages of 3 and 8 are referred to in this foundational stage. According to NEP 2020, this is the first stage of the 5+3+3+4 curriculum and pedagogical restructuring of school education.

“Don’t just teach your children to read. Teach them to question what they read. Teach them to question everything” –George Carlin.

Rationale Behind NCF Objectives

Research from neuroscience informs us that over 85% of an individual’s brain development occurs by the age of 6, indicating the critical importance of appropriate care and stimulation in a child’s early years to promote sustained and healthy brain development and growth. Therefore, NCF’s aim is the holistic development of children of this age group.

NCF Objectives: Overhauling the Indian Education System

NCF wants children to participate and flourish in the educational system throughout their lives. Along with this, the followings are the main National Curriculum Framework or NCF Objectives:

 

  • Upgrading Indian School System:

This NCF’s main goal is to assist in favorably altering the Indian school system as envisioned in NEP 2020 through appropriate beneficial adjustments in the curriculum, including pedagogy.

 

  • Reforming the Curriculum:

In fact, as the word “curriculum” encompasses the complete experiences that a student has in school, “practices” do not only relate to curricular content and pedagogy but also include school environment and culture. The NCF specifically wants to improve practices in education rather than just ideas. In a nutshell, it aims to significantly improve students’ overall learning experiences through this comprehensive overall reform of the curriculum.

 

  • Aiming Realistic Changes:

This NCF, despite being based on the most recent research in early childhood care and education, aims to be realistic, understandable, relatable, and usable by practitioners of education, including teachers and other educators, school leaders, and system functionaries.

 

  • Defining Stakeholder’s Responsibilities:

The NCF Objectives also include striving to provide a fair knowledge of what education should entail in our new vision for schools and what role individuals should play as parents, community members, and Indian citizens, who all have a significant stake in Indian education.

 

  • Making teachers the focal point:

However, the teacher is the focal point of this NCF because they are the ones who actually carry out the practice of education. The ultimate torchbearer for the changes we want to see is the teacher. Therefore, everyone—including curriculum and content developers, textbook authors, administrators, and others—must adopt the viewpoint of the teacher.

 

  • Detailed Examples for easy implementation:

Thus, the presenting style and structure chosen for this NCF are intended to support the aforementioned goals of readability, accessibility, and teacher relevance. This NCF also provides real-life illustrations. Although the teacher or curriculum designers are not required to use these examples, it is hoped that the degree of detail will make the NCF easier to understand, relatable, and applicable.

 

  • Promoting innovation:

This NCF also seeks to be completely in line with the creativity of the institutions when provided with the best resources while taking into account the reality of an ordinary educational institute and teacher of today. Hence, this NCF seeks to be aspirational and firmly grounded in our context’s realities.

 

The compelling rationale of the NCF Objectives should motivate all school owners to imbibe this framework and make their students ready for the changing world.

Additionally, the National Curriculum Framework 2022’s introduction of Indian educational techniques is also perfectly included in this.
  • Digital Classroom Software: LEAD’s highly inventive digital classroom solutions are created to stimulate children’s senses by utilising digital learning technologies to their full potential. They have cutting-edge learning tools, including smart classrooms, virtual labs, digital repositories, etc., to provide flexible and interesting learning opportunities for students and fulfil NCF Objectives.

  • Sampoorna Hindi: The Sampoorna Hindi programme by LEAD promotes the complete development of the Hindi language in children while upholding the cultural rootedness and multilingual ideas of the NCF.

The above-mentioned points show that LEAD is in tandem with the NCF Objectives 2022 and aims to provide quality education to students. 

Education would be much more effective if its purpose was to ensure that by the time they leave school every boy and girl should know how much they do not know, and be imbued with a lifelong desire to know it” —William Haley.

Conclusion

National Education Policy 2020 and National Curriculum Framework 2022 are a reflection of the changing need of education. Make your school NCF-compliant and your students future-ready with LEAD!
