Curriculum


Pre-primary

A kindergarten is a preschool educational approach traditionally based on playing, singing, practical activities such as drawing, and social interaction as part of the transition from home to school. The first such institutions were created in the late eighteenth century in Bavaria and Strasbourg to serve children both of whose parents worked out of the home.

The term was coined by Friedrich Frobel, whose approach greatly influenced early-years education around the world. In accordance with his approach, he coined the term in the metaphorical sense of "place where children can grow in a natural way" (not in the literal sense of "garden"). The term is used in many countries to describe a variety of educational institutions for children ranging from two to seven years of age, based on a variety of teaching methods

Kindergarten I and II have three sections. The maximum number of students in each section is 35. In the KG I and KG II Grades, the formative years of a child's life, the young buds and blossoms are given training to develop their sensorial and muscular skills. They have theme weeks like the week of colours where children associate vegetables, fruits and even dresses of a particular colour and identify them. It is a veritable delight to watch the kids donning the apparels of the colour specified for the day and bringing vegetables, fruits or toys of that particular colour and identifying them with glee writ large on their faces.

Field trips like visits to the Zoo, Guindy Park and the beach enable them to sharpen their senses of sight, sound and touch, and help in fostering coordination of visual and tactile sensation.

Pre-Kg to UKG

The school follows XSEED curriculum for pre-primary and primary class. Xseed is a complete school solution focused on the better teaching and improved learning performance. It aims at building clear concepts, improving the fluency in English and superior outcomes. Xseed brings best practices into every class room so "All children learn better."

Primary - Grade I to V

As students move to primary classes we begin to introduce them progressively to the world of integrated knowledge, while particularly strengthening their aptitude in the core studies of English, Mathematics, General Science and Social Science. This is a time of multi-dimensional learning.

A wide range of classroom activities are used as a stimuli for reading and writing. From Grade 1 our students are introduced to the study of computers, appreciating that computer literacy is essential in a modern world. Children also start using the Math Lab from Grade 1, which helps them to learn while doing. Students in the primary school are encouraged to do various projects in Environmental Science appreciating the history, geography and cultural diversity of our Earth.

Students have Physical Training classes to develop their agility and fitness.

Middle - Grade VI to VIII

Students enter the middle school, in Grade VI to gain a wider exposure into the different subjects of study. The canvas of study is enlarged and what was general Science earlier gets divided into three branches of study as Physics, chemistry, Biology. Social Science becomes History, Civics and Geography. This transition transforms the vivacious group of students to a great extent and initially life is a little puzzling to them.
