To create a learning environment that accommodates all individual learners providing them with opportunities to maximise their inherent potential.
Our ultimate and cherished dream is to capture the latest and most innovative learning and teaching techniques and to introduce them successfully in India and across the world. We believe that children have a right to stress-free childhood, and we have shown that education can be a happy medium to gain knowledge. Learning can be and should be fun. We believe that all children should have the opportunity to experience the joy of discovery and develop a love for learning.
Brain research states that the ‘wiring’ in a child’s brain is positively affected by nurturing relationships and enriching environments. Our learning environment includes the set-up of various interest areas that encourage independence and autonomy where children learn how to get along with others, express individual thoughts, solve problems, and most importantly develop empathy towards others.
The teacher/facilitator plays a vital role in our learning environments. Mentors are constantly trained and empowered to achieve an optimal balance between self – initiated learning and adult guided and supported learning.
Parents play an equal role in realising the vision of the school by walking hand-in-hand in the early stage of learning. This offers preschoolers a level of comfort essential for making learning fun-filled and exciting.
One size doesn’t fit all; it is important to accommodate all individual learners, providing them opportunities to grow at their own pace and optimise their inherent potential. Our curriculum strongly emphasises children’s intellectual (cognitive), language, social/emotional, physical, creative and aesthetic development and is based on the latest research and pedagogy.
After the basic physiological needs have been met, needs like safety & security, love & belongingness, and self-esteem are consistently met, which help children establish their competence and capability over time. Here is how we do it:
Treating each learner as a unique individual, implementing this theory helps foster a blended learning environment based on different learning styles. Here is how we implement this:
Children move through four different stages of learning:
On reaching the Pre-operational stage (ages 2 to 7), our learners start thinking, imagining, and learning about the world around them.
A plethora of activities form a part of their learning process during this stage, some of which are:
Prepared classroom environment, colourful resource materials, and interactive learning activities ensure a holistic approach to growth and development, based on a combination of the following principles:
We implement it through:
This psychosocial theory meshes individual needs with the needs of society. Resolving the crisis at each stage, children develop character traits that help them become confident. These stages include trust vs. mistrust, autonomy vs. shame/doubt, initiative vs. guilt, industry vs. inferiority, identity vs. role confusion, intimacy vs. isolation, generativity vs. stagnation, and integrity vs. despair.
Here is how we put this to practice -
A child’s social interactions with adults and more learned peers can facilitate their potential for learning. Special days like Dad & Mom Day, Grandparents’ Day, Pet Care Day, Doctor & Nurse Day and field trips to a bakery, supermarket, or zoo provide great learning opportunities for their social development. Other activities include:
This theory propagates that each individual has a way of learning and engaging with the world, which is unique to them and is referred to as ‘intelligence’. The application of this theory helps us implement strategies to promote all intelligences and cater to different learning needs at the Preschool level.
We have interesting activities which cater to all sorts of learners:
Culminating activities and special events showcase and extend children’s learning. These provide an opportunity for parental involvement and are a critical tool for creating ‘episodic memory’ – memory created through sights, sounds, smells, tastes, touch, location & emotions.Know more
Children learn best through direct experiences as they connect their learning to the ‘real world’. Field trips and guest lectures are linked across all concepts. Whether it is a visit to the pet shop or a supermarket, a bakery or a zoo, such visits offer unique learning experiences that re-enforce learning concepts taught as a part of the curriculum.Know more
