Academics:

Nursery

The school has a well-integrated curriculum. We aim at providing opportunities for children to learn most effectively and develop love and interest for learning. Our curriculum focuses on the cognitive development of the child by developing their imagination and curiosity, logic perception, problem solving skills and general knowledge.

 

Personal, Social and Emotional Development:

Children are supported in the formation of good relationships, social behavior, self-discipline and good morals. Our teachers are constantly reinforcing these skills and also aim at increasing each child’s level of independence.

 

Communication, Language and Literacy Skills:

Children are encouraged to use English as the medium of communication at school. This is emphasized by giving children opportunities to express themselves freely as they participate in group discussions, ask and answer questions and respond to instructions.

English is taught in classes using the Phonics approach as it facilitates reading and comprehension skills. The school uses the Letterland International Phonics Program (Cambridge, England).

The school library provides a rich source of enjoyment through regular sharing of books and stories as children are allowed to borrow books on a weekly basis. Library sessions also enhance their early reading and listening skills.

 

Mathematical Development:

Children are encouraged to learn and understand basic mathematical concepts which encompass Shapes and Pattern work, Measurement, Pairing and Matching, Sorting and Numeracy skills.

 

Science: 

Various topics in science are taught using a Thematic Approach. Themes are explored using a variety of styles like Project work, Field trips, Experiments, Nature walks, Art and craft and Activity sheets.

 

Physical Education:

Is an integral part of the curriculum to help the growth and development of gross motor skills, body coordination, balance, agility and strength. Children take part in a wide range of activities planned by the Sports Teacher.

Swimming sessions also provide an abundance of physical exercise and great fun for children. The Swimming instructor ensures children overcome any fears and develop basic swimming techniques.

Computer lessons enhance the curriculum and give the children other dimensions to their learning. These weekly lessons also help expose the children to the world of IT as they learn basics concepts.
