Storytelling, Circle time, hands-on activities with Montessori based tools to emphasize on a sound mind and physical activities, inquiry-based learning through games to grow with a sound body are the focal points of this curriculum.
A system of “Continual Informal Evaluation” will be followed which evaluates students based on class work, theme-based worksheets and observation sessions. Periodic and Term tests are done to evaluate the child’s academic performance at this stage. An assessment report highlighting the various aspects of the child’s development is submitted to the parents.
At the primary level, classes are activity based, designed to enhance knowledge, cultivate skills and inculcate values in our young learners. The primary years are of extreme importance and students are provided innumerable opportunities to be creative, innovative and explorative.
