The philosophy behind the teaching is "We play as we learn and we learn as we play." Goals are set in a programme consistent with the early stages of a child's development. The programme includes the following skills: Linguistics, Creative, Numerical, Social/Interpersonal, Motor and Kinesthetic . Thus, we hope to hone the child's intellectual, physical, cultural, artistic and communication skills in a free and stimulating environment. Children have lunch together and this helps in the development of social skills. At SPS we believe that every child is unique individual with unique learning abilities. In the formative years the emphasis is on the development of language in the child. This inturn is done through honing various skillls like listening, speaking,reading and writing. There is no formal assessment and child is compared with his previous performance. It is a continuous process where the child competes with himself.


These classes have an integrated academic programme devised to inculcate confidence in the child. The environment is communicative and children are motivated to express themselves. Reading is a vital part of the programme. Children are encouraged to ask questions. We offer: English, Hindi, Mathematics, Nature Studies / Environmental Studies/Social Studies, Computers, GK, Art, Music, Dance, Martial Arts, Games, Yoga and Sports in class room teaching. 1.
