THE ABSORBENT MIND! THE ADULT IS A PROCREATOR, BUT THE CHILD IS A CREATOR. THINKING OF THE CHILD FROM THIS POINT OF VIEW, WE SEE HIM IN A NEW LIGHT.
The Kindergarten Study Program me in SXPS is divided into two phases. The first is designed for LKG, to introduce the student to education within a formal structure, with an eye to laying the foundation for the student whose faculties, talents and special skills will be explored in such a way as to instill the idea that learning is not only a happy experience but a necessary one.
Since children at this stage develop concepts through direct interactions with the environment, an activity and play-based method will be used. A thematic approach wherein various activities are developed around themes relevant to the immediate environment of the children will be also used to develop concepts. We, therefore, implement a plan for a sure systematic acquisition of knowledge through linguistic techniques using a psychological approach to suit the child’s understanding and temperament. It helps us to correlate the phonic and the look and say a method of teaching skills, the fantasy of poem and story, the principles, and guidelines to good handwriting and the structural approach to mathematics, experience in environmental studies. Thus the free learning becomes spontaneous and without strain and monotony.
The second phase is UKG, in which the student receives a sound preparation for entering the primary school; it is therefore given a head start and the advantage of being able to acquire not only the written word but to converse fluently and with a flair so that he/she can tackle with confidence the syllabus of the CBSE.
We at SXPS believe in the overall development of the child. The KG years are the most formative years in the education of a child not just from the point of view of academics but in the building up of the whole personality. Therefore, the co-curricular activities are a vital part of our programme.
Though the school has carefully planned the education programme, it cannot replace the role of the parent in the child’s overall education and development. Experts in child development emphasize the importance of the time the parents spend with their children conversing, reading working and playing together. Languages play a central role in the child’s development and reading regularly to the child develops his/her vocabulary and creativity, laying the foundation for a reading habit, lifelong learning, and enrichment. The sole idea is to foster in the child love for the school and desire for learning.
