PRE-PRIMARY

 

The pre-primary wing of the school comprises classes Nursery and Prep and caters to the needs and demands of early childhood learning. Bearing in mind that at this age the foundation of a child's personality is laid and two third of his intellect is formed, we have created an environment and a system of teaching which is entirely child friendly. The classes are housed in Block - C which is their exclusive domain and it is here that they learn social skills, free-play, develop verbal ability and imbibe the skills and joy of creating things with their own hands through art and crafts which is an integral part of the curriculum. The curriculum is open-ended and the focus is on experiential learning. Formal learning of the three Rs is introduced in Nursery. It finds a more prominent place in the Prep curriculum which includes recognition, reading and writing of the Hindi and English alphabet, small words and basic mathematical concepts. Environmental studies is taught with project based activities and Life Skills is taught to make students more adaptable to different situations.

The focus in Prep is on cognitive development and enhancement of the language and interpersonal skills. The children are sensitised to the social and cultural concerns and encouraged to think, reflect on issues and arrive at their own solutions. The main objective behind the curriculum is to enable the children to communicate effectively and to develop the integrated skills and craetivity required for them to grow as confident and independent individuals.
