The school focuses and emphasises on following NCERT guidelines and go by their norms while laying a strong foundation of learning, creating positive outlook and skills among the students. Our main focus is on imparting education by 'LEARNING BY DOING' methodology to this age group. The young minds are stimulated and opened to new avenues of learning through opportunities to interact and explore.
The KEY LEARNING DOMAINS which are focused are:
Pre-School and Pre-Primary is a tender age of new learnings and discoveries of the world around. This is an onset of journey of academic learning. To develop an affinity towards learning and knowledge, the curriculum is designed to be executed in a fun and interactive way.
The pedagogical processes followed are based on methology so that kids can find their own trajectory of exploring the environment. Children enjoy the freedom to explore, express, create and interact within as well as beyond their environment and gain knowledge. A joyful and secure environment gives the children in our pre-primary classes the freedom to be curious, to wonder and to find answers to their inquisitive minds. Learning in this way transforms them into lifelong learners. We design joyous activities for each domain of learning with care and research-based precision. Even the physical spaces and structures the children interact with everyday are deliberately designed to reflect their learning outcomes.
Children at this stage:
Primary classes too focuses on the pedagogy of 'LEARNING BY DOING.' Our prime focus shifts to developing their conceptual clarity by relating learning to everyday life, developing thinking and analytical skills. We try to encourage curiosity, self-expression, aesthetic sensibility in students and channelize their energies towards creating a better learning environment. We keep the pedagogy flexible keeping in mind, different levels of learners and try to provide them ample opportunities to explore and discover and grow into responsible and keen learners.
AREAS OF LEARNING FOR PRIMARY CLASS I-V:
Children also get opportunities to express and showcase their talent and skills by participating in various intra-section and inter-section competitions, inter and intra house activities, class assemblies, annual days, celebrations and social awareness campaigns.
The scheme of Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation (CCE), as designed and laid out by the CBSE & NCERT, is followed in the Junior School. Formal test & Exams are introduced in Class II.
