Teaching Pedagogies

A World of Infinite Possibilities

The early years are the most significant for human growth, development and learning. The Montessori curriculum is characterised by many features based on contemporary research on young children. It includes real-life problem solving among peers with many opportunities for creative thinking and exploration. It aims to create an enriching environment for children to enquire, explore and discover a great deal about themselves and their surroundings through various experiential activities. Facilitating the right stimulation at the right time is the key to the networking of brain cells, which shapes the way individuals behave, think and learn for the rest of their lives.

The curriculum of Montessori is designed on the following methods-

L.E.A.P (Learning Enhancement Awareness Program)

The Pre-Primary wing of our school provides a stimulating learning environment in which the children are cared and valued for their individuality and creativity. The school encourages the students to achieve their potential by promoting curiosity and enthusiasm. They ‘learn how to learn’ and take accountability of their own learning. We believe that learning happens all the time. Hence, learning in pre-primary classes is interwoven across all domains. We aim to make children cheerful lifelong learners. Our curriculum helps the learners to develop their competencies in order to understand the facts in relation to the world around them. Each child works independently to ‘Raise the Bar’.

Experiential Learning : Learning by Doing

‘Learning by doing’ helps to develop vital skills such as critical thinking, problem solving and effective decision-making and aids retention. Such an enabling environment provides equal opportunities for collaboration and each child’s contribution is valued.

Physical Well-being and Motor Development

The two major goals of physical and motor development are achieving gross and fine motor control. Gross motor control includes body balance, coordination, movement and skills such as running, jumping, hopping, skipping and catching a ball. Fine motor skills involve using and coordinating the small muscles with dexterity. Eye-hand coordination helps in activities involving manipulation of small material and writing tools such as holding crayons, paint brushes. Music and Movement activities also help in developing spatial sense.

Language Development:

Language development is crucial at the preschool stage since it provides the foundation for later learning. It includes listening and comprehension, oral skills, vocabulary development, pre-literacy skills such as phonological awareness, print awareness, letter-sound correspondence, building words and sentences.

Cognitive Development:

Cognition refers to the processes of knowing and understanding the environment around us. Cognitive Development includes pre-number and number concepts as well as knowledge and skills related to comparison, classification, seriation, critical thinking, observing and problem solving.

Development of Creative and Aesthetic Appreciation:

Exploring different art forms and developing dispositions, expression and appreciation for artistic, dance  and musical activities.

Personal, Social and Emotional Development:

Habit formation, cooperation, social relationships, group interaction, pro-social behaviour, expression of feelings and acceptance of others feelings are some of the skills and values that are addressed in the early years. They are the most significant for human growth, development and learning.

Multiple Intelligence Room :

To make teaching learning more interesting for our students, we use our activity-based MI Room. We have different Learning Centres consisting of multiple stations like reading corner, creative art corner, role-play corner, etc. for the students . ‘Play’ opens the windows of learning as the children test their developing ideas with objects, people, and situations. This method has been widely accepted by educational institutions dealing with young kids in the age group of 3-5. It fits well with the commitment and aims at not burdening the kids with tasks.

Many activities in the MI Room are planned which offer our children an opportunity to discover, wonder, experience and create their own understanding of their environment. This helps in enhancing their self-esteem, pride, and fosters curiosity and imagination.
