Pre- School (Kindergarten)
A stage when the toddler is curious about everything around him.
Our early childhood PROGRAMME emphasizes child centric, self directed experiential learning & is concerned with the whole child, its intellectual progress as well as its social, emotional, creature & physical well being. It provides children with a rich stimulating, enriching environment where each child is nurtured. Concrete experiences in a number of areas are provided for children of this age through experiential learning, through practical life experiences & through language experiences. In our early childhood PROGRAMME we adopt the way as children learn naturally. They learn best in a relaxed ambience, where they can freely & recreationally explore and implore their environment with joy.
Experiential learning :
· Provide a whole new rhythm to learning
· Stimulates learning, advances brain development
· Serves as an outlet for every child’s innate creativity
· Develops language skills & expressions.
· Prepares children for life.
· Develops logical problem solving skills
· Encourages lifelong learning
· Teaches the application & transfer of knowledge.
· Helps the child to focus.
JUNIOR YEAR PROGRAMME
A stage when the child starts to learn & understand new concepts and ideas.
The goal of Junior year programme is to lay a strong educational foundation. It is broadly based & takes into account the fact that each one enters the formal education with different level of readiness. The curriculum is planned to develop in the students a respect & love for learning, while giving them the strong basic skills, which they will need to continue their education. Emphasis is laid on building language skills in English. Through projects & by learning with hand, heart & head the pupils will develop all aspects of their personality. There are child centric activities designed by Research and Development Department team under NCF guidelines, wherein the concepts are introduced. The concepts are well explained through integrated learning pattern with the help of latest technology. Activity based learning is encouraged to make the concepts clear. Here, the focus is on the development of oral as well as written expression, creative writing, critical thinking and mathematical skills.
MIDDLE YEAR PROGRAMME
We follow an experiential learning strategy because we believe students will have deeper understanding of the concept when given hands on experience. Related Excursions are also planned.
Once children are given a taste of knowledge, their curiosity and yearning knows no bounds. They seek answers to all their questions. They sample different subjects to understand what they like the most. They experiment with different activities to discover where their interest lies. And they devour every source of information to pacify their hunger for learning. This is the stage when it’s most important to develop a foundational knowledge that will help them scale the heights of success at the SENIOR School level.
The Middle School (Grade VI-VIII) at Petals World School is abuzz with activity. Well-qualified and experienced mentors help instill a love for subjects, and encourage them to have an investigative mind to explore the many knowledge banks that open up. Regular assessments and assignments help optimize the learning experience
