Following the 3yr, Pre-Primary program building the foundation of a fulfilling learning journey for each child, our Primary School starts at Grade III. As the children are quite young & their individual development is an ongoing process, thus the transition is a gentle and a gradual process.
The learning environment is more structured and a lot more academics oriented, however, the approach remains child-centered. The children will continue apply creative learning through meaningful exploration of our in-house developed curriculum
The methodology adopted centers around our in-house activity-based learning, facilitated by project work integrated with ICT, Art, Library resources coalesced with the academic teaching in the classrooms. This indirect teaching reinforces the child’s knowledge through exciting activities.
