Our preschool training methods are devised to teach children to become independent individuals who know the right from the wrong. Along with academic training we also focus on teaching them good manners that need to be used in everyday life. All the classrooms and infrastructure is also designed in such a way that provides maximum freedom for movement, safety and accessibility.
Our classroom is set up for learning in different centers. A center is an area of the classroom where a variety of hands-on materials and meaningful activities are available for children to choose. The centers provide opportunities for children to be actively involved in learning and making choices in a variety of ways. Children have many opportunities to make choices, come up with ideas, experiment, and take responsibility for their work. Here's what you'll see when you visit:
A variety of learning materials are in each center so that no matter where children choose to play, they learn. Similar materials are grouped together to teach children to sort and classify--skills that are important to understanding and solving math problems.

We want your child to feel secure and independent, to move from one activity to another as easily and confidently as possible. And we want to provide a variety of learning experiences for a well-rounded education. So we plan a daily schedule with these goals in mind. We follow this same schedule day after day, making small adjustments to accommodate special activities. It helps children feel secure because they know what comes next. This schedule works well for us. After a few months, children are amazingly independent. They tell us what they are supposed to do next!
When you visit your child's classroom, you see a room full of children playing. You may wonder what we are doing to help children learn. As children play, we watch how they use materials. We observe, listen and intervene if necessary. We talk with them to find out what they are thinking and trying to do. We help children become aware of their actions, offer suggestions, and think about what materials to offer next. Then we challenge them to think further. This is how we encourage the development of skills children will need in elementary school and how we are able to meet the individual needs of each child.
Our major activities of the day begin with circle time where we welcome the children. Each child in time learns to take their own cushion, sit in the circle and learn to listen, speak in turn and are then told of the rules of the class and what they will be doing for the day. We then continue with phonics, numbers and knowledge and understanding of the world, each taking its turn in the week. Snack time is a time to mingle and to learn to eat independently. Sand Pit and water play follows. Hand writing skills are then pursued so that the fine motor skills of each child is gradually developed. Tracing, sticking, cutting, lots and lots of coloring is given to acquire the above skill. We always complete the day with either Sing Along, Yoga, Sports,Art & Craft, Rhythm & Dance, Puppet Show and many more.
Special Days will be conducted during the term always related to the theme that they are learning. Some events will be in house and some events will be an opportunity for parents to get involved. Circulars for the same will be sent.
We will have a PTM once a term where parents will get a chance to speak to the respective teachers about their child’s progress in the year. Report Cards will be given at the end of each term.
Friday review is given to the child primarily to make the communication easy for both parent and teacher. The review will also give a brief outline of the week’s progress in the classroom.
The Champs Newsletter will be given at the beginning of each term , which will give you a glimpse of the curriculum for the term.
Discipline is a form of teaching, and good teaching is based not on punishment, but on guidance. We use the positive discipline techniques, that helps us in guiding your child toward developing the kind of behavior that others will enjoy, which leads to a happier child.
