Program Highlights
Our Program is mainly inspired and influenced by Project Approach and Reggio Emilia.
The children investigate worthwhile projects based on the school curriculum of each grade or their emergent curiosities and interests.
 
Our programs are designed to extend the school learning experience.
We have been developing small group and individualized tutoring programs which are available in all subjects.
 
Free time with rest, gym time and playground activities are another aspect of our program.

We consider children’s daily physical & emotional needs and allow flexibility in the routine to meet the needs of individual children as they are apt to be tired after a full day at school.

 
We regularly update and develop our programs to meet the needs of children and their families.
 

Environment

- The classrooms are composed of optional stations such as homework/tutoring centre, art/craft (art studio), language art/library, math, group game, puzzle, computer lab, science/culture, project group activity, etc.
 
- Centers are maintained constantly and new materials shall be added to centers often.
 
- Children are encouraged to select choices freely at different centers based on their interests and levels.
