Learning is Fun

The Joy of Learning Preschool: A foundation for learning

At Indira Priyadarshini Preschool, we offer our children a caring and joyful early education experience as they begin their journey of learning. Our preschool program has been designed keeping in mind the STEM and Literacy focus in the Primary and Middle School. The program for each preschool year is loaded with fun and stimulating activities designed to nurture the natural curiosity and sense of wonder innate in each child.

The mind of a child grows fastest during its first five years and this is a period of maximal learning. Our preschool program supports this phase by providing rich learning experiences – hands-on, outdoor, learning centre-based, audio visual, and group and individual activities. In accordance with our belief that learning through play is the best at this early stage, all our lessons are play-based and include a lot of movement, dance, singing and fun. 

To keep their interest levels high throughout the school day, we have a carefully designed daily routine in which sessions are kept short and children transition from activity to activity without losing valuable learning time. We use Orient BlackSwan’s “My Best Friend” series of textbooks, which provide focus on the development of 21st century skills, problem solving skills, life skills and values in children, as our primary reference material.

Children are encouraged to move and engage with one another throughout the school day. Circle Time Conversations, Daily Read-Alouds, Helper Roles and Announcement Responsibilities that are assigned daily help the children become confident communicators and to grow socially and emotionally. Our trained staff unobtrusively observe and record the performance of each child every day as they go through their daily routine, and provide reinforcement whenever a child needs it. We ensure that students achieve mastery in all key developmental aspects at their own pace, neither hurrying them nor cutting short teaching in order to force fit the learning to a schedule. Observation parameters are regularly shared with parents.
