a) Educational Approach

  • Integrated-cum-Thematic Approach

b) Curriculum Overview

  • We emphasize on the “all-round development” of the child.
  • We believe in learning through play. Children are given ample opportunities to socialize with other children and take an active part in meaningful and enjoyable learning experiences.
  • Child-oriented learning is geared towards a child’s developmental needs, interest and enjoyment.
  • Opportunities for children to develop conceptual knowledge and acquire lifelong skills, good values and language fluency.
  • School-readiness skills are essential, with emphasis on “progress” rather than “product”.

c) Enrichment Programmes

  • Speech & Drama by VIR
  • Flair Programme By AECES/MOE
