Infrastructure at our play schools has been specially designed to suit the young, bouncy and eager preschoolers, keeping in mind their inquisitive and explorative nature. The arrangements at our play schools promote learning through, and with, fun and cheer. The bright facade of our play school buildings and the clean, colorful interiors combine in creating the perfect atmosphere for the children to 'react' in and pick up the basic skills. At our play schools, there are no formal classrooms, just thematic rooms like an aqua room, audio-visual room, art and craft room and so on.
Extra Curricular Activities
Solid foundation for lifelong learning
At Lakshaya we have developed a unique, new age scientific curriculum called the “Lakshaya Programme” for children aged 2 years to 6 years. It provides our children with a solid foundation for learning and helps them realize their full potential as intelligent, creative and whole persons.
It has been carefully designed by a highly experienced and qualified research team of early childhood professionals and is based on the use of scientific research on early brain development and learning, child psychology as well as extensive research into the best preschool practices around the world. The curriculum is an evolving one apart from being developmentally-appropriate. It will be constantly updated as well as moulded to suit the specific requirements of our children.
Some of the philosophies and approaches we follow in our curriculum includes Dr. Howard Gardner’s ‘Theory of Multiple Intelligences’, Maria Montessori’s ‘Montessori’ Method, Friedrich Froebel’s ‘Play Way’ Method, the Reggio Emilia Approach, the Rudolf-Steiner ‘Head-Heart-Hands’ Approach and Theme-Based Model.
Children live in a world of senses. Through sight, touch, sound, taste, and smell, the children are able to clarify, classify, and comprehend their world. Lakshaya Program is a multisensory program that provides the all -absorbent sensorial child inspiring learning using all five senses.
The Lakshaya Program uses the ‘Theory of Multiple Intelligences’ as a curriculum framework. The theory propounded by Dr. Howard Gardner says that human beings have different intelligences that include verbal/linguistic, logical-mathematical, visual/spatial, bodily / kinesthetic, musical, interpersonal, naturalist and intrapersonal intelligences. This is why children learn in different ways and at different paces. Our curriculum program makes use of a range of learning and teaching styles that helps children have their particular learning needs met and also encourages them to explore and exercise all of their intelligences. Students who have these kinds of experiences know many ways to learn almost anything!
Theme Based Learning
The curriculum for each year is divided into themes designed to help children understand concepts across different learning areas. Each curriculum theme offers a wonderful spectrum of lesson plans, worksheets, hands-on activities, songs, stories, games , multimedia recordings, interactions with others and field trips. Multi-modal learning through rich auditory, visual and kinesthetic experiences at Lakshaya allows each child to achieve his/her maximum potential.
Learning by Doing
At Lakshaya, learning is experiential with hands-on, minds-on activities coupled with whole-body integrative movements. We believe that learning should be the outcome of the child's own experiences, interactions and thinking. We help create rich experiences and exposures through activities and a stimulating environment. Children are seen as active participants, problem-solvers and learners guided by teachers who are facilitators.
‘Larger brain use culture’
A child is born with more than 100 billion brain cells or neurons! Learning occurs as more and stronger connections are made between the neurons.
The early years are a crucial period in which connections or linkages are made between the neurons and the neural networks are forged. These connections or pathways are formed by the experiences and thoughts that we give to our children. A stimulated brain develops a rich network of neural pathways to permit complex thinking while an unstimulated brain has fewer pathways to develop thought.
At Lakshaya, combining multi-sensory experiences with multi-modal teaching approaches provides powerful stimuli to the brain enhancing the child’s capacity to learn and expanding the child’s future proficiencies.
