1) What are your unique preschool Teaching Methodologies and how different is it from the rest of the players?
The fundamentals of pre schooling and why is it universal as a concept. Well, all kids need an environment, beginning particularly from this age that stimulates them into exploring the world around them, and it is the experience that they acquire from this environment, which stays with them for life and gives them a meaningful foundation. The meaning derived and resultant approach to deal with such experience in future for the same set of learning could be different in case of each kid.
Now, the most relevant and frequently mooted question is about the methodology adopted for triggering this stimulation. There are numerous methodologies, tried and tested across the world, scientifically substantiated that are adopted by most of the players.
The essence of our methodology tries to deal with one important crux – Let us not create a disconnect within the child.
For example, the adoptability of a certain curriculum in UK might not be relevant in India or Japan. So we cannot get rigid in the name of methodology / curriculum. Rather, what we stress on, is that one thing that cuts across all kids, irrespective of the caste, creed, race, social position, economic background, etc., is that all need and Understand PLAY and any curriculum based on PLAY is universally accepted among all kids across the globe.
We have conceptualized and configured a very unique methodology with and around the “PLAY”, which is very proprietary to us. Play is primary to a child and synonymous to childhood. Child and play are like two miscible liquids and the fact that nobody ever teaches a child to play; yet children play and learn many aspects by exploring the environment and surrounding.
