About School

The pedagogy adopted in the preschool and early primary classes is largely play-centered and activity-oriented, and teaching is done in an integrated manner. Children are encouraged to learn independently through their own activities, play situations, and stories. The methodology recognizes the uniqueness of every child and develops it further. It facilitates opportunities for social, emotional, intellectual and physical growth of the child. The age-appropriate learning environment enables children to reach their fullest-potential.

Triggered through technology, our multi-faceted learning methods address the physical, mental, emotional, intellectual and spiritual domains of the individual learner, thus acknowledging the uniqueness of each.

We have been successful in bringing technology to our classrooms with the introduction of interactive Whiteboards or Smart Boards. These allow students to interact with the lesson content while allowing teachers to integrate a range of resources with their lessons.

The methodology that Gyan Devi Salwan Montessori School follows for the teaching is:

Authentic: To draw on the learner’s strengths and interests. Material and resources are drawn from and connected to real world.

Interactive: This fosters participation and collaboration allowing the learner to interact with the real world.

Learner-Centered: This provides opportunities to learn through learning by doing which helps the learners to be the creators, thinkers and problem solver.

Continuous: Provides the learner an opportunity to acquire knowledge in a more holistic way. It builds on a variety of disciplines and learning environments.

Process-focused: It helps the learner to apply diverse strategies and develops communication capacity.

Integrated: A thematic approach to teaching involves integrating all subject areas together under one theme. It crosses over subject lines and helps children relate basic academic skills to real-world ideas.

Flexible: Adapting lessons to individual learning styles requires flexibility. Regardless of how organized a teacher is, and how well she has planned the day, she is flexible in her teaching..
