Our main focus is skill development in different domains. The child’s development can be understood in different domains, These are all intimately interrelated and mutually interacted. So, it is often difficult to separate them. Yet it is important to do so, so that no domain is neglected and our curriculum are planned to attend to all domains to achieve all round development of children.
Our mantra is development in each domain can be fostered by giving each child a chance to participate in a wide variety of play-based activities. These activities allow the child to engage actively in the process, to learn, practice and master skills at each level and explore at the next level, to test and evaluate and develop self-confidence and motivation to achieve.
