At 'Little scholar' in everything the child does, learns or experiences, there is a lot of planning based on educational theories. Our aim is to give back 'childhood' to children.
Children are led to discover and explore their environment through an integrated approach involving play, project and activity method. Exploration, investigation and discovery is done through guided play involving sand play, water play, home corner, books, nature activity, music and movements etc., which leads to physical, social, mental and emotional development.
The school is equipped with play area with swings, slides, seesaws etc., and an indoor playroom stocked with toys, puzzles, blocks, play dough and much more. There is also an audiovisual room to watch educational videos.
The primary challenge for children between 1 and 2 years is to discover and explore the world around them using all their senses.
For a 'Wobbler', walking through our school entrance for the first time is generally also the first time when he/she is interacting with a community that is outside his/her family unit and home. Every day is a wonderful adventure as he/she explores the world in our safe and trusting environment. At Little Scholars, beneath the veneer of colour and play there is a very serious exchange of concepts and ideas taking place. Songs and rhymes, actions, puppets, pictures and simple stories foster language development, basic motor coordination and independence in our 'Wobblers'. Instead of a formal classroom environment, our playhouse is a nurturing social community where your little ones experience their first contact with other children and learn to participate as a co-operative group. A sense of independence is developed as the child remains away from the parents for a couple of hours, thus breaking free from separation anxiety.
pioneered by the Italian educationist Dr. Maria Montessori. Preschool philosophy emphasizes the potential of the young child and recognises in him / her a natural desire to learn by associating concrete experience with each abstract concept.
This hands-on, holistic and child centered philosophy offers children a full preparation for their lives ahead, with attention to all facets of their development.
The Preschool classroom is a child's world, geared to his / her size, pace and interests, providing maximum freedom and accessibility in an environment, which encourages selfcon fidence, self-discipline, concentration and independence.
The Preschool teaching materials provide each child with a variety of multi-sensory learning experiences and we structure the use of these within our broader curriculum to help each child discover his / her potential.
Waldorf education is based on the philosophy of an Austrian philosopher Rudolf Steiner. It believes that a good education should involve the mind, the body and the soul. In other words a child should use his five senses to receive information, use his hands & body parts to put it to use, and lastly there should be a value attached which will touch his heart and soul.
Steiner's 3R's- Rhythm, Reverence and Repetition are followed in our curriculum.
Rhythm - Music and Movement has a positive impact on brain development. That is why action songs, dance and rhythmic activities are included in our curriculum. Reverence - We teach children to revere the environment, to revere nature and become more responsible individuals. Repetition - Children learn by repetition. It reinforces concepts and learning. But all repetition are done in a novel and innovative manner to make it more interesting for children.
