Educational Philosophy:

It is recognized and valued that children bring their own perspectives and cultures and experiences to the classroom. At the Shri Ram Centennial School, we are highly sensitive to the nurturing of your child during the formative years when human character takes shape. Children explore themselves in relation to others in the world and as unique individuals. At Shri Ram Centennial School, they are encouraged to express interest, respect, sensitivity and responsibility while interacting with others. Which is why the imparting of learning is balanced with inculcating the right values in every child. It is our constant endeavour that every child in our care is endowed with the noble qualities of character that makes him or her in time, a responsible and responsive member of the community and a balanced human being.

Curriculum Approach

Shri Ram Centennial methodology believes that a play-centric model is key in a young child’s learning. Spontaneous play is a natural way of learning for young children; as it provides a wide range and real depth of learning in various development areas: physical, emotional, social, and intellectual.

We also emphasise on learning through spontaneous investigation (observation, experimentation, and inquiry). Children are natural scientists. They devote their endless amount of energy to learning all aspects of the culture they are born in, including language, stories, music, and literature; they investigate with all their senses and emerging skills what people mean, when things are appropriate and when they are not, where things come from, what they are for, how they are made, and how adults and peers respond to them. They try to make sense of common objects by prying into them, taking them apart, and manipulating them in a variety of ways. Appropriate curriculum and teaching methods at the Shri Ram Centennial School, includes activities and encouragement for kindergarteners in these quests and feature the importance of individual children’s feelings and emotions in group settings

The Shri Ram Centennial has a curriculum that involves a variety and balance of activities that can be provided in the context of project work. Children undertake projects in which they investigate a real event or object. In the course of such projects, the children strengthen literacy and numeracy skills and also speaking and listening skills and acquire new words as they share their findings with others.
