Children are like flowers in the garden. They need to be carefully and lovingly nurtured to let them blossom and spread their unique fragrance.
At Pre-School, we believe in nurturing these young minds and help them flourish into holistic and beautiful beings.
Toddlers are inquisitive by nature and they develop their first liaison with initial complex learning at this stage. They have an innate quest for learning by doing things themselves. We cater to their inborn curiosity by providing them with an array of valuable experience in a safe and stimulating ambience.
Our curriculum is a unique blend of three internationally recognized programs - Montessori, Gardner, and Froebel that cater to the enthusiasm of our little learners allowing them to engage in relevant and meaningful learning activities that can be connected to real life. Most of the learning is delivered on an individualized basis through a sequential and scientifically designed material that gives a multi-sensorial experience for their overall development.
Here children can develop their senses and learn through self-directed activities, collaborative play, spatial stimulation, and interactive puzzles. Through our well-planned and harmoniously integrated curriculum, we aim to achieve the cognitive, physical, social, emotional development of our toddlers.
Our teaching methodology and deep immersive learning experiences result in our students being well-prepared to transition to Grade-1.

Nishkam D Very Good School, teaching is concept based, kids are able to learn fast because content can change but the concept remains the same. Teachers are excellent they know about the strengths and weaknesses of each and every child. I wish the school will grow and flourish more and more in the future.
