Primary School

The Plane of Imagination (6 to 12 years)

The Philosophy

The child between the ages of 6 and 12 years is ready to take the leap into the world of imagination. With a growing ability for reason and logic, the child between 6 and 12 years becomes ready to understand the working dynamics of the universe, the world and the society of people.

The Prepared environment for 6 to 12 supports the child in the following ways:

  1. Providing scope for imaginative exploration through academic study of language arts, history, social and natural sciences, mathematics and creative arts development.
  2. Going Out – Offering opportunities for application of concepts in the real world outside the walls of a classroom.
  3. Preparing individual children to develop ownership their learning by designing their own day plans and how the curriculum rolls out.
  4. Teachers serve as guides to initiate children into research and enquiry based learning.
  5. Building sensitivity and awareness on significant social aspects of ethics, morals, diversity and personal and social justice.
