Activity Based Learning
Learning by doing, observation and through active involvement improves the focus of a child on the activity at hand and helps them involve in purposeful play which was their choice in the first place. An activity-based hands on learning approach helps children engage in an activity of their choice, observe outcomes and learn as they experiment playfully.
Individualized Curriculum Approach
The “Individualized Curriculum Approach” helps the facilitator to keep track of every child’s development in their own unique way based on individual interest, readiness, aptitude and participation. Activities are open ended and encourage children to make choices. Incorporating learning centers provides a stimulating environment with choices and helps children develop skills in literacy, cognitive, fine and gross motor. Children develop critical thinking and creative problem-solving skills.

The benefits of a play-based philosophy offered in a mixed age group when combined with an “Individualized Curriculum Approach” provides the best of successful educational philosophies; Montessori, Traditional and the Play Based approaches
