Our Curriculum

EYP

 

Play Group – Sr.Kg

 

In the Early Years Program, we strive to provide a comprehensive module that balances the individual stages of each child’s social, emotional, physical and academic development within a child-centered, teacher-guided and international environment.

We aim to foster each child’s curiosity, creativity, confidence and independence in order to nurture a love of learning at school, at home and throughout their lives. Our goal is to expose learners to a meaningful curriculum of skills, attitudes and knowledge through developmentally appropriate activities that the children will build upon throughout their academic careers.


CPP

The Primary Years Programme follows an international curriculum which encourages students to develop the conceptual understanding, knowledge and skills that they require to become conscious learners. Our curriculum fosters a higher level of questioning skills in the student. The topics covered have been carefully selected, and moduled based on their relevance and significance.

The Cambridge Primary Programme enables the learners to develop their skills and understanding through the primary years in subjects such as English, Maths, Science, Hindi, Marathi, Sanskrit, Global Perspective, ICT and PE. It focuses on developing knowledge and skill in core subjects which form an excellent foundation for future grades. The assessments marked in CPP provides an International Benchmark of Learners Performance. The detailed report helps to highlight the strength and weaknesses of learners and make targeted improvements.
