Seasons and Rhythms
The monthly rhythms are guided by the seasons and what happens in nature. The rhythm sets the theme for the month.
For instance during the monsoon rhythm, the morning circle is filled with songs of the rain,the stories have the themes of rain and even the seasonal
craft would reflect the same. This allows children to experience the world outside through the lens of the work they do in the kindergarten.
The Kindergarten environment is extremely rich in language in all its myriad forms – songs, stories, verses, poems and plays.
There is great emphasis on presenting the language in its beautiful and lyrical form.
Joy of Singing and Movement
Movement plays an extremely vital role in the healthy development of children in their early years. Each day is filled with a lot
of singing, movement and gesture plays in the morning circle that children greatly enjoy and benefit from.
Working with the Hand
Children are exposed to various activities that engage their hands in a purposeful way. They knead dough, stitch with the matte cloth,
model with clay, beeswax, do beading and are provided with many such opportunities to use their hands skilfully.
Imagination and Free play
Children work with wooden blocks, fabric and other material that lend themselves to creative and original free play. This promotes
imagination and creativity.
Domestic Work as Pedagogy
Cooking, Baking, washing, cleaning, Gardening and other purposeful domestic work is actively encouraged. It has deep pedagogic significance
and builds practical life skills in children.
Art is used as a medium of expression. Children not only pursue artistic activities such as Wet on Wet painting, but also are surrounded in
an environment where everything is presented in an artistic manner.
Celebrations and Rituals
Festivals have a connection with either our culture or rhythms of nature. Celebrating festivals with an understanding of its significance
builds deep roots to one’s culture. Therefore festivals are celebrated with stories and rituals to establish these bonds.
