Kinder- Kindergarten Curriculum Guide
Grade 1 to Grade 6
“Empowerment of the Filipino with desirable knowledge, attitudes, values, and skills that will enable him to think critically and creatively, act innovatively and humanely in improving the quality of his life and that of his family, community and country.”
“It is envisioned that with the help of Alternative Learning System (ALS), every Filipino will be awakened, empowered and transformed into a productive, self-reliant, responsible, humane and upright citizen who can contribute to the betterment of the family, community and country. It is also envisaged that ALS will help alleviate poverty and sustain social and economic growth via the development of employable skills and the generation of self-employment.”
ALS Goals and Objective:
To provide viable alternative to the existing formal education instruction, encompassing both non-formal and informal sources of knowledge and skills.
The Alternative Learning System (ALS) is a parallel learning system in the Philippines that provides opportunities for out-of-school youth and adult (OSYA) learners to develop basic and functional literacy skills, and to access equivalent pathways to complete basic education. Many Filipinos do not have a chance to attend and finish formal basic education (Grades 1-6 and Year 1-4) due to many reasons. Some drop out from schools while some do not have schools in their communities. Since every Filipino has a right to free basic education, the Government establishes ALS to provide all Filipinos the chance to have access to and complete basic education in a mode that fits their distinct situations and needs.
Republic Act No. 11510 (Alternative Learning System Act)
Aims to provide adequate, timely, and quality attention and support to the basic learning needs of out-of-school children in special cases and adults including indigenous peoples (IPs).

The ALS program is expanded and strengthened to provide increased opportunities for out-of-school children in special cases and adult learners, including indigenous peoples, to develop basic and functional literacy and life skills, and pursue an equivalent pathway to complete basic education.“ The law guarantees equitable access for all learners, including those who reside in the unreached, underserved, conflict-affected communities, and communities in emergency situations to avail of systematic, flexible, and appropriate alternative basic education programs outside of the formal school system.
