A child′s first experiences of school are some of the most important experiences in life, setting an approach to learning that can become a lifetime′s habit. Children need to feel safe and have classrooms that combine wonder and energy and foster a tone that allows even the most quiet and sensitive child an equal opportunity to interact with teachers, assistants and fellow students.
The early childhood years focus on learning through experience, interaction and inquiry. Classrooms are vibrant and colorful centers of happy activity. Even our youngest students are proud of their environment and eager to express their joy in learning. Parents will enjoy the class presentations, assemblies and performances which occur throughout the year. They can watch their child develop social and academic skills day by day and take pleasure in knowing how well they are being nurtured and inspired.
The children will also enjoy trips and outings, picnics and playtime together, and become passionate about the things they are learning! The CBSE Primary Program ensures that structured and progressive learning in English, Mathematics, Science and Social Science is continuous, varied and substantial.
The Primary Years (3 to 11 year olds) follow the CBSE Curriculum, incorporating the Early Years Foundation Stage, and inquiry-based process in learning. The core subjects are emphasized and the curriculum is enriched with a trans disciplinary process that prepares young students to be self-confident and respectful of other cultures.
Our child-centered approach is designed using best practice from around the world and includes a holistic approach, with varied experiences and expressive processes which foster not only numeracy and literacy but also creativity and imagination.
In grades I-V we have adopted the CBSE Primary Programme, that allows our per-existing strengths to be combined with a huge and thoughtful resource base developed by the CBSE. This is thoughtfully combined with cutting-edge teaching practice, weekly staff training, and a focus on developing self-awareness and reflection among students.
Inquiry and the use of resources such as ICT complement all the strategies we use to help students to become life-long learners.
Musicals, art, drama, and public speaking, are important components of the program . The school sports a large range of co-curricular activities, aided by talented teachers, experts, and parental support.
