Tailoring the Academia: Promoting All-around Development
“A Nobel Laureate Alumnus by 2050”
This is the futuristic vision of Birla World School that reflects its stringent efforts to impart premium education to students. In its endeavor to provide a meaningful learning experience, the school focuses on Language Development during the early years. Along with education, the students are encouraged to participate in activities like dramatics, play, songs, rhymes, and wordplay that develop strong language skills. Forging a pleasant partnership between parents and teachers, the school believes in the larger concept that helps to learn and be meaningful and motivates the art of critical thinking and questioning.
The management has divided the academic program into three levels that are listed below:
Lower Kindergarten and Upper Kindergarten are the earliest years of formal education for a child. The team in LKG works collaboratively to ensure consistency throughout the grade level. LKG classes have incorporated music and physical education as specialist subjects, along with the activities happening in the classrooms throughout the day. At least once a week, every little tot visits the sand pit area, library, playroom, and the outside play areas.
Students in LKG are introduced to new materials, concepts and situations in a meaningful, play-based way that is interactive and hands on. Being responsible and independent are some habits that are inculcated into the little minds by involving them in interactive activities and lessons – taking care of their lunch boxes or backpacks. The management ensures that the little kids learn meaningful literature by interacting with letters, sounds, and stories through reading, writing, listening, speaking, viewing and presenting. These developmental skills are woven into an integrated and play based approach where children are valued and encouraged to evolve as creative, curious and confident learners.
In the UKG, the kids are introduced to new materials, concepts, and situations in an expressive, play-based way that is interactive and helps them to develop their own identity and social skills. The management embraces various innovative approaches into the learning methodologies that deepens and cements the grasping power of the students. The UKG classes begin at 7:30AM and end at 12:30PM and have a five-day week starting from Sunday to Thursday. The school has a quality pool of specialist teachers along with a well-trained support staff to assist the kids and to transform their early days of school as the best days of their life!
