An age where the children express desires to learn, to explore, to articulate their own needs, talents, abilities and interests. These are supported by varied learning opportunities.
This program is a thoroughly designed program for children from 2.5 years to 3.5 years.
In this year, we open the window to a range of activities focused towards purposeful learning. The scope of activities range across a spectrum of learning objectives which include socio-emotional growth, practical life skills, early math, early literacy, early art and crafts, communication, social skills and so on. At this stage of learning, a strong foundation comprised of these basic but essential pre-school skills is built. A fine balance between child based inquiry and teacher guided learning helps to promote a child’s creativity, thinking skills and confidence in self. Detailed assessment of each of our nursery children helps to tap on strengths and work on areas of reinforcements.
What Our Day Looks Like
The group meets for 2.5 hours 5 days a week
Prayer And Inquiry Session
The children are welcomed each morning into our well organized classrooms. Post prayer and greetings, the children and educator discuss the day that has passed, what to expect during the present day, share stories and seek inquiry into the ongoing lesson theme.10 Minutes
Through various thought provoking and learning materials laid out by the teacher, the student chooses what piques his interest the most. He then manipulates the material to the best of his knowledge and understanding. While the teacher acts as an observer, this kind of open-ended play promotes self-learning and collecting information by own-self with the teacher’s minimal inputs.40 Minutes

Basic concepts of pre-math skills, math skills as well as literacy are focused on in this session with the help of various learning manipulatives and teaching aids.40 Minutes
