As the child steps out of the home and enters the portals of a school for the first time, the experience is unusual. The child does not know what to expect and looks around for things and activities that he or she can relate to. The classrooms and activity rooms are colourfully designed to create a pleasant mood and a sense of comfort and ‘at home’ feeling. The toy room and the numerous toys provide comfort and soothe the child and relieve him/her from anxiety. The specially designed music room where the child learns the rhymes creates an ambience that stimulates the joy of learning.
The initiation into serious learning is done so gradually and systematically, that the child does not find learning to be a burden, on the contrary, gets fully involved and actively participates in learning under the Primary Years Programme. The child learns to share and care for other children in the class and realizes the importance of group activity. There is an audiovisual room where the children watch interesting and educational films. There is an exclusive wing for daycare students to relax in the afternoon.
Today, sports are not an aberration but an essential and integral part of school regime. Sports activities not only keep the students agile and active, to those who aspire, it may become a very lucrative career option too.
