The first few years of a child’s preprimary education determine a lifetime. Our Early Years Programme is designed to provide the foundation for the future academic, social, and emotional wellbeing of every child.
We have developed a comprehensive, dynamic, contemporary, and thematic curriculum that prepares our young ones to go through the journey of life with complete confidence.
A thematic approach to teaching involves integrating all subject areas under one theme. It crosses over subject lines and helps children relate basic academic skills to real-world ideas. Thematic units are common in preprimary classes, especially since preschool children learn through interactive and integrated activities. These themed units incorporate reading, math, science, and social studies, as well as the arts for a well-balanced curriculum.
Our programme features activities and equipment designed for the development of gross and fine motor coordination. Hands-on activities that are appropriate for children at this age are planned and incorporated into our daily routines. We celebrate individual uniqueness and encourage self-expression & exploration while building strong foundations of love and security.
- A Home away from home, the Junior wing is a supplement to the home and not a substitute. The first five years of life are vitally important in laying the foundations of character and personality. Keeping this fact in view, the School is fully equipped to cater to the needs of growing children.
- This being the child's first exposure to a large school, our primary aim is to make him / her feel happy, secure and loved by providing an open, un pressurized environment in order to create an atmosphere suitable for learning. Children are encouraged to wonder and question, and in the process make learning an exciting and fun-filled experience.
- The best of Montessori, Kindergarten, Play way Method and other such activities as required by the social and cultural needs of society have been adopted and adapted for the Pre-Primary School.
