It also allows ample time and opportunity for one on one contact with the teacher.
The focus of the curriculum is on development of skills which is achieved through age appropriate monthly themes (projects).
- Physical Development includes fine motor and gross motor development.
- Creative/Aesthetic Development includes Visual Arts and Performing Arts (Music, Drama & Role play)
- Cognitive And Perceptual Development: focuses on developing Language, Literacy skills and Numeracy Skills.
- Social And Emotional Development: is achieved through group play, sharing and inter-personal communication.
Project Based Teaching Methodology :
- We strongly believe in emphasizing the thinking process, concept development and enquiry based learning in children. To achieve this objective, we use the Project Method which is multidisciplinary and integrated in nature.
- A positive, secure and happy atmosphere in school coupled with the provision of a rich variety of experiences such as creative drama, storytelling, creative and cognitive activities, science experiment, fireless cooking, water play, field trips promote development in a meaningful and well rounded manner.

- Library equipped with books and multimedia content
- Dining Hall with 400 student seating capacity

- Theme class rooms – Preschool themes are one of the best ways to teach children. We’ve used many different types of preschool curriculum. The one that is my most tried and true is preschool themes. We especially loved to tie them into stories, since that is also one of the most powerful ways that children (and adults) learn.
- Sand Pit – Sand play promotes physical development. Large muscle skills develop as children dig, pour, sift, scoop, and clean up spills with brush and dustpan. Eye-hand coordination and small muscle control improve as children learn to manipulate sand accessories. Sand play also promotes social skills.
- Kids Gym –
- Gymnastics Develops Cognitive Skills.
- Develop Strong and Healthy Bones.
- Gymnastics Aids In Strength Development!
- Increased Coordination.
- Improved Flexibility.
- Meet Their Daily Exercise Needs.
- Prevent Diseases.
- Gymnastics Helps To Create Discipline!
- Tyre park – Physical activities promotes healthy growth and development. It helps build a healthier body composition, stronger bones and muscles. Children who have higher levels of physical activity during their childhood are likely to be more active even after they mature. This is important for better health and well-being.
- Activity Area – Why Preschool Small Group Activities Are So Important. Incorporating small group activities into your daily schedule is essential for teaching cooperation and teamwork skills to preschoolers. By creating multiple learning stations in your classroom, you will help to facilitate preschool small group activities.
Eye-hand Co-ordination :
Good eye-hand coordination can help your child in so many different areas of life. Here are just a few:
- Sports: Hand eye coordination can help your child to catch a ball and hit a ball with a bat, and then graduate to more intense sporting demands.
- Handwriting: Visual-motor integration, which is a vital base for handwriting, grows out of this coordination skill. The eyes need to guide the hand in forming the letters and making sure they stay within the lines.
- Reading: Eye tracking skills, which are vital for reading, can be developed through games and activities used for hand eye coordination.
- Play and Life Skills: Young children use this skill in learning to stack towers, build with lego etc. We also need our eyes to guide our hands when we tie shoelaces and frost cakes!
- Fine Motor skills: The ability to complete self-care and everyday tasks helps a child’s self esteem and confidence to increase. It’s important to start working with children on building their fine motor skills early on. Fine motor skills will develop and improve as they move through childhood. It just takes the right kind of practice.
Fine motor skills involve the small muscles of the body, in this case the hands, that are used for writing, grasping small objects, and fastening clothing. Your young students should have strength and dexterity in their hands and fingers before they can be expected to master handwriting.
- Gross Motor Skills: Gross motor skill development is a very important part of the preschool-aged child’s physical development. Gross motor skills include the movement and coordination of the large muscle groups of our bodies.
Both gross motor skills and fine motor skills are important to focus on for the preschool-aged child. Working on gross motor skills helps a child gain strength and confidence in his/her body. It also helps them get exercise and physical activity, which is important for a healthy lifestyle. Developing these skills helps a childs ability to do more complex skills in future activities, such as playing soccer with a team.
