Home School About Curriculum

Pre-primary classes

The teaching -learning process in the pre-primary focusses on ‘learning through a variety of experiences and building up on conceptual knowledge through activities and play. The children learn by first-hand experiences involving manipulation, exploration, and experimentation. We respect the individual pace of each child and allow the learning to happen in ‘Khel Khel Mein, Khushi Khushi Se’. The school aims to provide a holistic learning environment.

Curriculum for Pre-school

Free-conversation/Circle time- Circle time benefits kids in countless ways and is an invaluable part of the school. Whether participating in group discussions or working on collaborative projects, children gain valuable experience through this special time of day as they engage in various activities.

The children begin the day with ‘meditation’, a mental journey of building listening skills and concentration span. With their eyes closed they go into space or a jungle. Later they express what they have seen mentally.

In kindergarten, ‘current news’ discussion is an important part of circle time. Children regularly bring news clippings (mostly pictures) and speak about it in front of the class. This activity helps children to develop general awareness, critical thinking, vocabulary, empathy, and civic skills in order to be successful in school and in life.

The Morning Assembly is an integral part of the day in which stories, songs, rhymes, puppet- show, skits are included. Children are the active participants. Every child is encouraged to participate in one or the other events in the ‘Assembly’ over a period of time to enhance and build up the child’s confidence and reach.

Learning by Doing-The approach of ‘learning by doing’ is deeply rooted in the essence of experiential learning. It invites young learners to explore, interact, and make sense of the world around them through direct experience. Within diverse educational landscapes, embracing hands-on sensory-rich activities like colouring, free-hand drawing, cutting, pasting etc. learning is not just received passively but experienced vividly and personally. The free-hand drawing is not just lines and symbols, but the child’s expression of his/her thoughts which he/she may not be able to put into complicated words like the adults. These are simple stories told by the child.

Playroom- Children love visiting the playroom where they are free to choose and play a variety of games, whether it is in the doll house or playing with kitchen sets, beads, puzzles, blocks or simply sitting down and browsing through the picture story books. Role play and imaginative games are encouraged like ‘Birthday celebration’ or ‘Ghar Ghar’.

Foundational literacy and numeracy- Developing a strong foundation of language, literacy, and mathematical skills in the early years is critical to all future learning. Relevant literacy experiences give them opportunities for self-expression in oral and written forms, reading with comprehension, pleasure, and critical perspective. Developing mathematical abstract ideas through concrete experiences also enables them to develop a positive attitude towards the subject.

Music & Movements- Children enjoy rhymes and stories where they sing and dance along with the music played in the class. They recite rhymes happily and listen to stories and in turn begin to create/narrate their own stories too. This component builds up listening skills, enhances rhythmic movements, improves language and expression, strengthens physical development and also liberalises imaginative skills.

Outdoor Activities- Children go for nature walks to explore immediate surroundings, plays on the swings and participates in structured outdoor events. Gross motor skills, pro-social behaviour, team spirit, observational skills etc. are a few learning outcomes through such exercises.

Trips and excursions- We also organise short trips like rail museum, Delhi zoo, Garden of five senses etc. for the children. Besides enjoyment they develop close bonding with their classmates, observation skills, emotional and communication techniques etc. A recall cum memory retention activity is performed with the children when they come back.
