We follow a student-centred approach in our curriculum. While the general curriculum is followed by every student, he or she is also encouraged to develop talents and interests in personal areas of academic interest.
Pre Primary Curriculum
Early childhood is a time for seeing, thinking, and wondering. The Pre-Primary curriculum is designed to recognize and celebrate everyone’s personal achievements. Our colourful and interactive classrooms allow children to independently engage in an environment that nurtures their curiosity, self-discovery, and creativity. We provide each child the opportunity to reach their full potential in an environment rich in music, creativity, languages, and play-based, hands-on experiences.
Primary School Curriculum
The primary curriculum is designed to guide children through a child-centric approach to coping with formal learning situations. The aim is to provide a balanced, relevant and coherent programme of learning in a child-friendly environment.
Students are engaged in subject areas that excite their imaginations and deepen their expertise in chosen areas through flexible, integrated, inquiry-based research tasks.
We believe that if a child cannot learn the way we teach, maybe we should teach the way they learn. With this attitude in mind, our mentors ignite the curiosity in young learners by enhancing their cognitive, social, emotional, fine motor, gross motor, ethical and communication skills through the following pedagogies.
Middle School Curriculum
The Middle School curriculum has been structured to meet the varied intellectual and developmental needs of growing children as they transit from Primary to Middle School and prepare for Secondary and Senior Secondary School. It encourages the children to feel, explore, create, think and solve problems.
Competencies such as knowledge, skills and attitude are developed in the Middle School. Goals are set on the basis of desired learning outcomes.
