Innovative Learning Practices
A child’s first experience of school plays an important role in setting the child’s approach to learning. Children need to feel safe and have classrooms that foster a tone that allows even the most quiet and sensitive child an equal opportunity to interact with teachers, attendants and fellow students. Therefore, during the early childhood years we focus on learning through experience, interaction and inquiry. The teacher-students’ ratio is considered very important in giving each child a warm and a nurturing touch.
The Kindergarten Program at Chitkara International School ensures that structured and progressive learning in English, Mathematics, Science, Social Science and Art is continuous, varied and substantial. Music, Dance, Sports, Health and Well Being, Life Skills, Values etc. have also been integrated into the curriculum. Special focus is on imparting values, so that our children realise the importance of friends, family community and society. We believe in creating scientists, scholars, intellectuals, engineers, researchers, and creative minds for future. We encourage children to explore their environment and optimise their learning using multiple skills which includes speaking, singing, movement, drawing, painting, writing, building, designing, collage, dramatics and music.
A significant part of a child’s learning in terms of language development, vocabulary building, and concept formations and cognitive development happens during formative years. At Chitkara International School the centrifugal point of curriculum is research and has evolved after years of expertise. The curriculum is not merely restricted to colouring or storytelling and playing; its periphery extends to promote research aptitude in the students.
Keeping in mind the holistic growth of the students’ sports, games physical fitness activities and yoga asanas are introduced and systematically followed to develop the team building skills and achieve physical fitness.
The environment is considered the “third teacher”; therefore, great attention is given to the look and feel of the classroom. Classrooms are vibrant, theme based and colourful centres of happy activity with skilfully planned learning walkways. Thus, this innovative approach establishes Chitkara International School as the best Kindergarten.
