“My school keeps the students surrounded by new and innovative activities.”
The pre-primary wing of the school comprises of classes Pre Nursery, Nursery and Prep and caters to the needs and demands of early childhood learning. Bearing in mind that at this age the foundation of a child's personality is laid and two third of his intellect is formed, we have created an environment and a system of teaching which is child friendly.
Children acquire social skills, are engaged in free-play, develop verbal ability and imbibe the skills and joy of creating things with their own hands.
The curriculum is open-ended and the focus is on experiential learning. Formal learning of the three Rs is introduced in Nursery. It finds a more prominent place in the Prep curriculum which includes recognition, reading and writing of the Hindi and English alphabet, small words and basic mathematical concepts.
Environmental studies is taught with project based activities and values education making students more adaptable to different situations.
The focus in Prep is on cognitive development and enhancement of the language and interpersonal skills. The children are sensitized to the social and cultural concerns and encouraged to think, reflect on issues and arrive at their own solutions. The main objective behind the curriculum is to enable the children to communicate effectively and to develop the integrated skills and creativity required for them to grow as confident and independent individuals.
PCP (Primary Curriculum Plan)
For Pre-Primary wing (Pre-Nursery to Grade II) the school follows XSEED curriculum which is a research based academic programme.
