The pre primary division of New Horizon Public School comprises of the Nursery, LKG and UKG. At this level, there is a strikingly innovative approach to teaching where the elements of nature are in tune with the elements of education.
The curriculum involves learning through observation, experimentation and first hand experience,thus developing sensory perceptions to trigger both the creative and intellectual faculties of the child.
With the help of various activities and games, the child is guided through the intricacies of language learning which helps in developing the language skills.Subjects like Science and Mathematics are introduced through innovative and creative methods, like awareness of arithmetical expressions and also through projects on nature.
Building Child Power
Above all, the school concentrates on building the self esteem of the child through 3 interlocking factors:
- Unconditional love
- Positive Encouragement
to achieve their goals. At the same time, a strong set of values like responsibility, self-control,respect, honesty and courage are also inculcated in the child.
A unique feature of our pre-primary classes is the teacher child ratio, which is 1:20. Since constant guidance, personal attention, loving care and concern are needed for every child at this tender age,individual schooling and training of every child can be possible only if the ratio between the teacher and the student is kept at the right level.
The school firmly believes that educational empowerment begins right from the first day at school. Thus this scientific ratio is strictly maintained.
Montessori and Play Way Method
Excellence in child education is achieved at New Horizon Public School through the implementation of the Montessori and Play Way method. We have a scientific and carefully planned environment, where the teacher is a facilitator guiding the child in the discovery of new skills of comprehension. We conduct a number of activities which encourages independence, self-guided learning and improves the personal responsibility of the child.
At New Horizon, the behavioural skills of the child are given equal importance since they create an atmosphere of respect and co-operation. Each child is treated like an individual, where the emphasis is upon the child and not the teacher. We take into account the individual learning styles of children.
Varied stages of social and cognitive development, with the help of concrete objects help the children to learn effectively and effortlessly. We also emphasise on the freedom given to the child in his/her learning process. Here, the early years of childhood are devoid of painful intellectual activity and encourage spontaneous enthusiasm and excitement in acquiring knowledge. As the stress is on exploring and experimenting, the child’s mind is trained to adopt self-corrective measures this, leads to discipline.
A fruitful fusion of discipline and freedom leads to spontaneous constructive activity, thus empowering the child’s IQ. New Horizon Public School has always been following an activity based curriculum for the tiny tots.
Exercises in the classroom based on practical methodology activate a child’s senses. With the development of sensory perceptions, the child becomes highly independent. Subconsciously, the child develops qualities that strengthen his/her mind and body, the child grows up emotionally, mentally.
