“Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire.” ~ William Butler Yeats”
Pre-primary education, with its vibrant and captivating learning environment, lays the foundation for a child’s educational journey, fostering holistic development and igniting their curiosity. Within its nurturing embrace, young minds are introduced to a myriad of stimulating activities and age-appropriate pedagogies, promoting cognitive, social, emotional, and physical growth.
In the enchanting realm of Pre-Primary education, a world brimming with captivating learning avenues and diverse pedagogical approaches, our ardent learners embark on a voyage of endless possibilities. Within this nurturing arras, they blossom into intrepid explorers, inquisitive seekers, and discerning analysts, eagerly unravelling the mysteries that surround them. With resolute dedication, we, as facilitators, meticulously design an environment that serve as a fertile ground for their young minds to unfurl and thrive, providing a sanctuary for independent thought and holistic growth, nurturing each child’s unique personality.
From the very beginning, pre-primary education fosters unwavering confidence by actively promoting public speaking through interactive activities and presentations, laying the groundwork for effective communication skills that will flourish as they progress in their academic and personal endeavours. The physical space in class is safe, flexible, and child-oriented to provide comfort and accommodate the changing developmental needs and interests of the learners. The space is organized into self-play areas, stocked with a variety of sensory-motor materials that toddlers can reach, explore, and play with, in their way.
A joyful and secure environment gives the children in our pre-primary classes the freedom to be curious, to wonder, to find their own trajectory of exploration while making sense of their new world. Learning in this way transforms them into lifelong learners. They associate learning with magical, exciting discoveries that they make independently through our hallmark experiential programme, inside and outside the classroom. We design joyous activities for each domain of learning with care and research-based precision.
The furniture is carefully crafted with a delightful palette of colors, child-friendly shapes, and interactive elements, sparking the imagination and captivating young minds in an immersive and stimulating learning environment.
KRM believes in educating the ‘whole self’ and not just teaching the curriculum to its students. It pledges to meet the needs of the individual child, nurture her/his unique learning style and help her acquire skills and knowledge to enjoy a lifetime of discovery and learning.
The essential approaches of the Pre-Primary involve learning and teaching through inquiry and play. The learning process is engaging, relevant, challenging, and significant, while students delve into explorations driven by their innate curiosity whilst making connections to the world around them.
In perfect harmony with NEP’s play-based philosophy, pre-primary education embraces experiential learning, nurturing creativity, and cultivating critical thinking skills from an early age, preparing children for a future of exploration and innovation.
It also focuses on students developing key skills, which are essential in the 21st century. These skills focus on students developing strong communication, research, thinking and social skills. Inquiries are carefully planned by teachers across levels to provide a complete and coherent curriculum that is of global significance and that also provides an awareness of the human condition. It creates sensitivity towards the diversity in our world and sustaining the resources of our planet to create a better and more peaceful world.
In the Pre-Primary section of our school, we understand the significance of laying a strong foundation for our little learners. Pre-Primary education is the first step in a child’s educational journey, where their young minds are shaped and nurtured with love and care. We believe that investing in early childhood education means investing in the future of our society.
Our primary focus in the Pre-Primary wing is to create a joyful and stimulating learning environment that fosters curiosity and creativity. We believe that children learn best through play, exploration, and hands-on experiences. Our dedicated and passionate educators use innovative teaching methodologies to engage our young learners actively. By focusing on their interests and needs, we ensure that each child receives personalized attention and support.
Academics at the Pre-Primary level revolve around building a strong foundation in language, numeracy, and cognitive skills. We promote learning through rhymes and storytelling sessions and interactive activities, which not only develop their language skills but also ignite their imagination.
Inspired by the best practices propagated by Reggio Emilia and Maria Montessori, we have developed a comprehensive, dynamic and contemporary curriculum that prepares our young ones to go through the journey of life with complete confidence. Our curriculum features activities and equipment designed for the development of gross and fine motor coordination. Hands-on activities that are appropriate for children at this age are planned and incorporated into our daily routines. We celebrate individual uniqueness and encourage self-expression and exploration while building strong foundations of love and security.
In line with the National Education Policy (NEP), we emphasize developing critical thinking, problem-solving, and creativity among our little ones. Our approach discards rote learning and encourages conceptual understanding. We aim to nurture young minds that can confidently navigate the complexities of the modern world with adaptability and resilience.
Beyond academics, we strongly believe in the importance of holistic development. Our Pre-Primary wing offers a plethora of enriching co-curricular activities. From arts and crafts to music and dance, each activity is designed to spark creativity and foster self-expression. Outdoor play and sports are an integral part of our curriculum to promote physical fitness and teamwork.
In the spirit of healthy competition, we organize various intra-class and inter-class activities, where children can showcase their talents and develop a sense of sportsmanship. We celebrate their achievements, no matter how big or small, to boost their self-confidence and motivation.
Mindfulness is a core value that we instil in our young learners. We encourage them to be present in the moment, practice mindfulness through simple exercises like deep breathing, and engage in activities that promote emotional intelligence and empathy.
Pre-Primary wing is a place of wonder and discovery, where we strive to create a nurturing and enriching environment for our little learners. We believe in the potential of every child and are committed to empowering them to become compassionate, responsible, and globally-aware individuals. As they blossom in our care, we know that they will carry the love for learning and personal growth throughout their educational journey and beyond.
