Junior School is a dynamic environment in which we see significant developments
in physical, emotional and intellectual growth from Kindergarten to graduation
at the completion of Year 6. These are the ‘Foundation Years’
during which early linguistic and arithmetic basics, scope for creative
play and expression, physical fitness and constructive socialization are
stressed upon to build childhood competencies. This is the time when good
habits are instilled and a sense of identity and place take shape.
Kindergarten I and II have four sections with two teachers in each section.
The maximum number of students in each section is 35.
Students of Kindergarten I develop fine motor skills, auditory visual
discrimination, hand-eye co-ordination, one-to-one correspondence and
logical thinking. Interesting writing activities are given to enhance
their observation skills, quantitative analysis and sequencing.
In Kindergarten II, to increase the vocabulary of students, more emphasis
is on reading. Students start framing simple sentences, which bring out
their creative writing skills. Interaction among the students is emphasized
upon while teaching subjects like math and science. Simple and interesting
art and craft activities are done to develop the motor skills and bring
out the creativity in the child. Story telling, poetry recitation, singing,
drama and dance are also a part of the Kindergarten II programme which
help in breaking the monotony of classroom learning.
