Language and Phonics :
The focus in the area is on language development and communication skills. This being the transition phase from the mother tongue to English, children are encouraged, through a lot of listening and speaking activities, to comfortably converse in English.
Learning to read words is a lot of fun, if it is based on phonics. Rote learning is reduced to a great extent and learning becomes simpler and meaningful. From this perspective a lot of care is exercised while teaching reading through phonics.
Number Work :
The concept of numbers forms an integral part of learning process. It begins at the concrete level and proceeds gradually to the abstract level in order to consolidate the perception.
Environmental Awareness :
Awareness about self and their immediate environment is considered an important teaching/ learning objective right from the Pre-KG level. At this level hands on experiences in the form of out door activities such as nature walk is provided so that learning process becomes more meaningful.
Drawing ,Colouring ,Art and Craft :
Activities like drawing, coloring, art and craft are provided where in children are given the freedom of self-expression, self-discovery, creativity and aesthetics.
Music & Dance :
Songs and music are necessary ingredients for learning. Rhymes and rhythms are highly enjoyable and they are the most effective media for classroom activity. Dance is a natural method for learning and a basic form of cultural expression. Children learn movement patterns as readily as they learn language.
Physical Education :
Physical education is an integral part of the total education of every child. Children are guided by trained professionals to develop coordination, teamwork, independence and confidence.
