New measures are implemented for the over all development of the child. We provide education at the pre-primary stage through play and activity based programs. Besides learning academic skills, the also learn how to play together, to communicate with other and gain knowledge. The school has introduced the following innovative methods of teaching to make learning more vibrant, lively and child-oriented.
A Little Gym has been introduced for the physical and mental development of the junior children of the school. Personality charts are made for first term showing assessment of appearance, behaviour, mannerism and conversation etc. Every week, a stamp (equivalent to a star) in the shape of fish, teddy bear and flower is added ion the personality-chart. Child’s photograph, date of birth, mother’s name etc is pasted and written on the same. Recitation and writing skills are tested and assessed by the teacher.
The following measures are adopted by our teachers for Montessori classes:
PHONETICS: To learn the English language, it is necessary to understand alphabets with phonetic sounds. Therefore stress is laid on Phonetics by teaching with sounds so as to enable the students make spelling easier.
e.g. A says
If a child follows the phonetics at an early stage, he / she will be able to spell the words correctly and pronounce them accurately.
ARTS & CRAFT
a. Free Expression: Story with illustrations is narrated to the child. Using their creativity and imagination. Children draw various objects from the story e.g. Crow putting pebbles in the pot.

Children are taken on educational excursions in and around Patiala. .
Teaching aids like flash cards, charts, puppets, toys, T.V. and tape recorder are used to awaken the interest of the child.
Environmental study: To make the children realize the importance of clean environment, we celebrate ‘Tree Plantation Day’ every year. Old papers and waste are recycled to make paper bags in the recycling plant set up at the school itself. To extend the campaign outside the four walls of the school, our children discourage the use of polybags and take out awareness rallies in the surrounding areas.
PUPPETS: the teacher uses the puppets to narrate a story, Children feel fascinated when they see funny faces enacting in front of them e.g. a jungle scene, Ramayana Characters.
GRAND PARENT’S DAY: The school has unique feature of celebrating ‘Grand parents’ Day every year which makes our senior citizens feel important and wanted. They feel proud to watch their grand children performing on the stage.
