The reasons for children and their parent being happy and satisfied
1) 90% of our foreign teachers stay long-term employees. There is hardly any replacement of teachers within the school year. The administrative manager is highly experienced and is always there to give assistance. She holds a nursery
2) Each individual subject in the curriculum is taught by the teacher with the aptitude in that area of study. The teachers enjoy teaching it as it’s their specialty. To be able to utilize their ability to the fullest will lead to improvement of their individual skills.
3) A happy teacher will have a happy student. This in turn will make the parents happy!
The Basis of Thinking behind the Curriculum
As our teachers don’t change often, our personalized curriculum gets revised on a yearly basis. By reviewing and making improvements, we can set long-term goals for the K1 – K3 class by incorporating a variety of ideas along with respecting the international perspective of the instructors. We use self-developed study materials as well as carefully selected textbooks to incorporate in our personalized program in order to stimulate the children through a variety of approaches. The aim is to develop natural English communication skills by laying the foundation for English through daily conversation, phonics, developing familiarity with words based on class and themes which will enable conversation skills.
Show & Tell
Every morning for ‘Show & Tell’ the children bring something from their home to show and tell in front of everyone. By talking about why they chose the item, why they like it etc., to other people, helps the children in developing their presentation skills. The Show & Tell is done is front of all the classes irrespective of the age groups providing a learning opportunity for everyone.
