What is the teaching methodology used in Prarambhika?

Primary section:
The curriculum aims at the physical, social, emotional and cognitive development of the children. It follows the principle of integrated education. Hands on experiences play a major role in nurturing the spirit of exploration and enquiry. Themes in the groups are taken keeping in mind the learning needs of the children. The language curriculum is designed to provide rich experiences in listening, speaking, reading and writing. Children build connections with language, math and science in their surroundings. To deal with a mathematical concept, concrete material, relevant situations and games are used. The Science curriculum provides opportunities for exploring, experimenting, observing and drawing conclusions. Sports curriculum lays emphasis on development of gross motor skills, stamina, flexibility, balance, strength and overcoming fear. Art, music, dance and theatre help children to express themselves and connect to their inner selves.
he senior school curriculum is designed to facilitate enquiry, research and rigorous study such that young people can connect with increasingly complex constructs with an enduring interest.
Middle and Senior classes:
Theme based curriculum approach continues in the middle and senior classes with project work spread out over longer periods of time and across discipline areas such as science, languages, arts, social science and mathematics. Through project work, children are encouraged to make fundamental connections with the processes of enquiry. Project presentations are often put together as exhibitions and models that are shared with different classes. In the middle & senior school, specific processes are also integrated with the curriculum to help children take the impending unit assessments and examinations with confidence. Our children are encouraged to take national examinations like Olympiad or McMillan’s International Assessment of Indian School examinations to ensure that our children are at par with peers across the country.
