Our children are growing up in an interconnected world with incredible technological advancements and innovations, along with complex social problems. We believe that in order for them to live life to the fullest, our children should have a thorough understanding of the world they live in, what runs the world and how it is impacted by what they do. While most of these are covered in schools as concepts and theory, they form only a part of what is required to make children successful in life, work and citizenship. We need to give our children an opportunity to understand these concepts and theories in a deeper and truer sense by connecting their understanding to the real world. They need a bridge that will help them overcome the sense of disconnect between theory in classrooms and the real-world outside the school. With this goal in mind, we present MeerKats, an after-school program designed to develop curiosity and excitement about learning. We believe that once a child is curious, and equipped with the skills to satisfy their curiosity, nothing can stop them from being successful.
We need to give young learners an opportunity to understand these concepts and theories in a deeper and truer sense by connecting their understanding to the real world. They need a seamless bridge that will help them overcome the sense of disconnect between theory in classrooms to the real-world outside the 4 walls of the school.
With XEL, Creya has gained extensive experience of working with learners in schools, helping them see connections between their classroom conceptual learning and the real world. Based on this learning, we have created an offering to be available beyond school in residential communities and retail centres. Designed to provide all the building blocks (beyond academics) for success in life, work and citizenship, we present the Meerkats After School Program.
