Early childhood is a remarkable period in a child’s growth and development phase. This stage can foster children’s curiosity and enjoyment in exploring the world. A child achieves one growth milestone after another, growing by leaps and bounds and it needs to be cherished and nourished in order for them to grow up into talented and successful individuals. Children in their early years need time to play and be physically as well as mentally active. Just like all the other sections of the school, our approach is towards teaching and learning in the primary section, guided by our Core Values. The following are the core values that we live by:
At Mainadevi Bajaj International School (MBIS), we strive to provide numerous opportunities for children to explore and learn so that we can nurture their individual needs, interests, and skills. By creating a warm, caring and happy environment in which every child can grow and progress at their own pace, we make learning an exciting part of their growing years.
Recognising and understanding that this is a sensitive time for youngsters who are stepping out of the comfort zone of their home environment for the first time, we ensure that emotional and physical security is a priority so that they feel safe in the environment that they are trying to bloom in. We ensure this by:
We focus on the constructive and holistic development of the child through play, art, music, and language. The Early Years program is designed around three core subjects of literacy, numeracy, and area of inquiry. In literacy, kids are taught various language skills along with phonic sounds, which are an important part of development in children.
Creativity and curiosity are nurtured at each stage of the programme and the inquiry-based method facilitates this. We encourage learners to enquire and seek, rather than to assume what they should learn. Each area of inquiry develops the children’s communication, thinking, self-management, and social skills.
Our academic programme is fully supported, integrated and linked with co-curricular activities. Students are exposed to various activities like Art and Design, Music, Yoga, and Martial Arts. Leading professional agencies are involved in providing expert guidance to our students.
The entire curriculum is integrated and holistic, driven by activities like Music, Dance, Speech and Drama, Martial Arts, PE and Yoga.
The Early Years Programme is designed around three core disciplines:
Our approach comprises storytelling, play way, experiential and inquiry-based methods. Creativity and curiosity are nurtured at each stage of the program and the inquiry-based method facilitates this. We encourage learners to enquire and seek, rather than to assume what they should learn. Each area of inquiry develops the children’s communication, thinking, self-management, and social skills.
Co-curricular activities are meant to bring social skills, intellectual skills, moral values, personality progress, and character appeal to students. It includes athletics, cultural events, Library activities, science lab activities, classroom activities, creative arts, and meditation. Through our interdisciplinary multi-faceted approach we achieve the dynamics of education in a seamless manner.
