CBSE UKG Syllabus

CBSE UKG Syllabus


The first 3 to 6 years play a key role in children’s life. They begin to absorb the world around them and start blossoming. The early experiences of children affect their physical, emotional, cognitive and social development. So, it’s important that they get such an environment in which they can explore the world around them, play with others, learn to speak and listen to others. Preschool education is set up for this purpose.

Preschool is a stage from where the development of a child begins. It is the starting point of formal education and foundation for lifelong learning. At this point, children need a curriculum that focuses on all-round development. The CBSE UKG syllabus is designed to cater to this need. It builds a strong start to education and ensures children’s success. It also prepares them to tackle the challenges of upcoming primary education.
