EXPLORE, PLAY, DISCOVER, GROW
At Nisarga Batika School, our youngest learners thrive in a stimulating and nurturing environment that provides opportunities for exploration and discovery. In Preschool, children learn to develop concentration, coordination, independence, collaboration, responsibility to prepare themselves for elementary school, both academically and socially. There isn’t a day without fun for our preschoolers as they explore, play, discover, and grow.
The Exercises of Practical Life is considered the foundation of our learning approach as it is the beginning of allowing the child to gain independence from adults around them.
We give utmost importance for children to practice the daily life skills such as learning to pour, spoon, button, eat independently, transfer objects with tongs, get dressed, take turns, share, respect and much more. Such exercises help children develop concentration, coordination and independence and other skills that they need for academics and throughout their lives!
Integrated Thematic Learning
Our Preschool follows integrated thematic approach in which various activities and subject areas are integrated together with a theme so that the children create meaningful connections and are more likely to retain the knowledge and information.
This approach used in preschool makes learning fun, and creates a well-balanced curriculum for young minds to explore and discover through self-directed learning as well as collaborative play. Preschool is the formative period of a child’s life to build foundations for all future learning. Nisarga Batika School provides a balance of academics and play, ensuring each child develops core abilities and discovers their unique skills and interests.
In a truly nurturing environment, children develop self-confidence and independence while learning how to work on their own and in collaboration with others. The primary goal of our Preschool program is to instill in every student life-long love for learning that will carry them through junior elementary school, as well as their entire academic career and beyond.
- Arts and Crafts: Arts and crafts help children develop their fine motor skills, explore and express their creativity. A variety of materials and media such as paint, clay, crayons, drawing are introduced at the earliest ages.
- Nature Exploration: Nature offers endless opportunities for discovery and exploration. Exposure to elements of nature, like wildlife, birds, insects, seeds, plants, flowers, trees, leaves, clouds, rain and sun offers children new experiences and appreciation for their world. Gardening, digging, nature walks, and field trips are regular features of our curriculum.
- Foreign Language: Mandarin Chinese, which is the most widely-spoken language in the world, is taught to all our students by a Chinese teacher. Teaching a foreign language at a very young age means exposing children to a new way of thinking which boosts brainpower, vocabulary and self-esteem. Chinese classes include conversations, songs, crafts, music and movement and cultural activities. Chinese classes will resume once the COVID-19 situation gets better.
