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
A well researched indigenous curriculum-Kinder Kids is followed at the kindergarten level to provide active and experiential learning. An Indigenous teacher’s resource that directs teachers towards the set objective along with suggested action plan and teaching aids.
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.
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.
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.
Students are given personalized training to appear for the board examinations with extra tutorials being provided at appropriate times. The study programme is planned carefully with adequate time being set aside towards the end of the course for revision and practice in examination techniques giving the students a cutting edge above the rest.
We provide education with an objective to empower students to appear for the CBSE Board and train our students accordingly using the NCERT syllabi in the following subjects:
Communicative English – with a focus on developing communication skills.
Mathematics – apart from NCRTE books additional practice and special care will be given.
Science – Laboratory Practical is conducted in all the sciences in well equipped laboratories
Project work is prescribed in all the subjects.
Students work in groups and make power point presentations on subject related topics.
New subjects on the list of the Board, like Life Skills and Environment Education are already a part of our curriculum
