Learning through play
Our teachers set up five centres every day. Centres are labelled pictorially to make them accessible for the students. We put a lot of emphasis on personal agency in these early years, and students choose the centres they want. They can switch centres at any time but are encouraged to visit each centre at least once a week.
We integrate mathematical thinking and language expression into all our activities. The classrooms are equipped with a wide variety of math manipulatives.
Books in Reception are chosen for their simple messaging and pictorial depiction of the storyline. Favourite authors include Julia Donaldson, Mo Willems, Eric Carl, Marcus Pfister and the class chooses the books they want to read. We also read in Hindi and include many songs which add to reading skills with rhyming words, repetition, prediction, personalized endings, etc.
