Each child embarks on an educational journey and discovers a lot about the environment. The main aim of our Pre-primary education is to help each child attain optimal perceptual and motor coordination levels, cognitive and socio-emotional levels as the basis for readiness for school education and life in the society. The starting ground is the uniqueness of the child, active learning and finally integration in a group which is done in a nurturing, happy and safe environment in our school.
The learning approach includes:
Methodology used is experiential in nature. Each day is planned so as to reflect a balance of individual and group activities, outdoor and indoor activities, active and quiet activities, free and guided activities to foster all aspects of development.
- Rabindranath Tagore
In the Primary years, the focus is on encouraging inquiry, exploration and on inculcating confidence in key learning skills like – reading, writing, listening, speaking, information technology capability, problem-solving, observation and measurement. Children are encouraged to speak and perform at assemblies, concerts, drama productions to gain confidence in their ability to communicate to a wider audience.
We recognize that children at this level are active, curious, experimental, imaginative and, above all, not very frank. Each child is an individual with his or her own unique abilities, interests, aspirations and expectations. Therefore, our curriculum in these classes is structured to encourage and motivate them to become self-confident, self-reliant and self-disciplined learners.
Our approaches to learning emphasize interdisciplinary instruction, exploration, practical application and cooperative learning. Learning opportunities are presented through a variety of instructional methods. Instruction in the middle school places emphasis on the continued acquisition of basic skills and higher order thinking skills and acknowledges the importance of experiential learning alongside classroom learning. Learning activities generally begin in areas familiar to the learner and lead to new areas of interest thereby equipping them with skills for the future.
