TK Tunas Unggul
Tunas Unggul as an educational institution has the desire to participate in preparing preschool children for further education, by establishing TK Tunas Unggul. TK Tunas Unggul is determined to organize education with the focus on fostering children’s character through the cultivation of moral, spiritual values, cooperation, mutual respect, care, compassion, help and independence.
Implement Inquiry’s learning model. This model facilitates the child to create meaning based on experiences, observations and social interactions in his environment. The learning process is carried out through exploration based on themes, in this case students are given freedom and introduced to new things to open their insights with varied and fun learning resources. In addition to exploring themes, TK Tunas Unggul uses corner learning methods (center-based) to explore children’s basic abilities such as language, dramatization, creativity, motor, cognitive and natural.
The transdisciplinary framework of PYP focuses on the overall development of the child as an inquisitive person, both in school and out of school. PYP has been developed through decades of research into the way students learn, the way educators teach, and effective assessment principles and practices. The program strongly emphasizes inquiry-based learning.
Through PYP, TK Tunas Unggul develops students’ academic, social and emotional well-being, with a focus on international thinking and strong personal values. PYP fosters self-learning skills, encouraging each student to take responsibility for their learning. The program incorporates local and global issues into the curriculum, asking students to look at six related transdisciplinary themes and consider the relationships between them. Themes raised include ‘who we are’, ‘where we are, at a place and time’, ‘sharing the planet’, ‘how we express ourselves’, ‘how we govern ourselves’ and ‘how the world works’.
Essential Elements of PYP
The inquiry program is organized around six transdisciplinary themes of global significance and learning about these themes underpins the program. Students address all six themes each year;
- Who We Are
