Children are not things to be moulded, but are people to be unfolded.” – Jess Lair

Every child is unique who is constantly learning through his or her environment and experiences. Thus, our objective should not be to mould them the way we are rather we should help them discover themselves by being their facilitators and caregivers.
A child’s early years provide a strong base for lifelong learning and lay the foundation for his or her development. To provide them with the best early childhood experiences it becomes vital for any childhood educator to comfort their anxieties and nurture their needs. By nurturing and shaping a child’s life in a certain way, we are raising happy children.

Research continues to emphasize the importance of early childhood education as ‘an essential building block of a child’s future success’. Children learn best when they are given space for creativity and when they play. Play meets their physical, cognitive, emotional, and social needs. It enhances their language development and expression as they collaborate and interact with each other through pretend or dramatic play. Children are natural inquirers who learn best when indulging in different types of play and games. It also builds on their curiosity and imagination.
Tassoni suggests that “some play opportunities will develop specific individual areas of development, but many will develop several areas”.
With a strong belief in this ideology of Jane Piaget, we always strive to give the best learning experiences to our children by designing learning spaces for them both indoors and outdoors where they can explore, investigate and discover. Our focus is always on skill development to raise independent life-long learners who are future-ready. Through positive relationships and strong partnership between all stakeholders, we will be able to meet the needs of all children and nothing can stop them from being resilient, confident and self-reliant.

Our motto here is to build a culture of happiness and excellence and to enhance learning through collaboration and commitment. Inculcating growth mindset amongst students to suit the needs of a global citizen and implementing agentic learning are our main focus areas.

What is in a question, you ask? Everything!” – John Dewey

Questioning is a skill that helps a child through his life to find answers. This is exactly our philosophy, encouraging our students to question and be curious. Being an educator for past 15 years has developed in me the belief that every child deserves to learn and grow and most of remember his primary years as years of happiness. Having taught in best of schools in Delhi NCR following CBSE, Cambridge and IB curriculum, it has convinced me towards the need for developing in our young primary students the appropriate skills to grow as global citizens.

My fascination for how students’ learn and the passion for new pedagogies led me to a career focusing on learning, teaching and training. I am is a strong believer the students need to make connections between the learning and the real-life experience to prepare themselves as the future Gen Z. We design our learning as a balance of technology and experiential learning to suit specific needs of all children.

It is my constant endeavor to inculcate in students’ attributes to become active, compassionate and lifelong learners who understand that other people, with their differences, can also be right. We plan a curriculum to arouse curiosity developing them into inquiring, knowledgeable caring young students for a peaceful world.

My continued commitment to teaching, has seen me involved with students and teachers both. I train teachers through dynamic and ever evolving modules.
