GRADES: Playgroup to Senior KG
Age Group: 1 Year 6 Months to 5 Years 6 Months
We will provide a safe, stimulating and challenging place for your child to begin his or her early years’ education. This is a big step for most children and we aim to help them develop to their full potential as individuals and as members of a larger group. Young children learn by firsthand experience through carefully structured play activities. Their intellectual, social, emotional and physical development will be catered to by skilled and caring staff through a balanced curriculum and cross-curricular activities which are carefully differentiated.
The early years’ curriculum is based around six areas of learning which are personal and social development; language and literacy; mathematics; physical development; knowledge and understanding of the world and creative development. These goals are achieved in various ways incorporating structured play activities, set tasks, teacher / adult interaction as well as through many opportunities for independent learning.
GRADES: 1 to 4.
Age Group: 5 years 6 months to 9 years 6 months
In the early Grades focus is more on “Theme-based learning” and various subjects are incorporated into this central theme. The latest strategies are adopted in the teaching and learning process so that students are keenly involved in their academics and enjoy their learning. Field trips, projects and presentations along with class quizzes and tests allow for formative assessments. The activities are closely monitored and structured to allow for student creativity and self learning. In the later years, the course is based more on the ICSE curriculum and subjects offered are English, Hindi, Marathi, Environmental Education, Social Studies (History, Civics and Geography), Mathematics, General Science, ICT and Arts. Apart from the regular subjects, students are given lessons in Music, Value Education and Physical Education. Students are also required to participate in community service programmes and field trips. Assessments are both formative and summative in nature.
