Curriculum plays a very important role as we at believe that learning is not just about teaching, books and lessons but much more than that.
Emphasis is more on the overall development of the child, as we understand that schooling is the time in the life of every child, which influences their future.
Gajera International School has a curriculum that is integrated. The curriculum is concept oriented rather than exam oriented, which caters to the overall development of a child. The integrated curriculum not only concentrates on the academics but also on the qualitative development of every individual child.
The medium of instruction at Gajera International School is English, and the curricula we follow are in accordance with the CBSE. However, the real crux of education at Gajera International School lies in how we choose to bring this universe of knowledge to our students. Through an environment that encourages a lightness of spirit. A hunger to discover. A desire to know through exploration, through experimenting, through debate and through interactions that encourage independent thought.
The pre-primary wing of the school comprises classes Nursery and Prep and caters to the needs and demands of early childhood learning. Bearing in mind that at this age the foundation of a child’s personality is laid and two third of his intellect is formed, we have created an environment and a system of teaching which is entirely child friendly. Here t they learn social skills, free-play, develop verbal ability and imbibe the skills and joy of creating things with their own hands through art and crafts which is an integral part of the curriculum. The curriculum is open-ended and the focus is on experiential learning. Formal learning of the three Rs is introduced in Nursery. It finds a more prominent place in the KG curriculum which includes recognition, reading and writing of the Hindi and English alphabet, small words and basic mathematical concepts. Environmental studies is taught with project based activities and Life Skills is taught to make Students more adaptable to different situations.
The focus in KG is on cognitive development and enhancement of the language and interpersonal skills. The children are sensitized to the social and cultural concerns and encouraged to think. The main objective behind the curriculum is to enable the children to communicate effectively and to develop integrated skills and creativity required for them to grow as confident and independent individuals.
