At Akshara, the child is at the centre of the teaching-learning process. We believe that each child is unique, possess certain abilities and has particular needs. It is our goal to encourage the growth of the child – social, emotional, physical and intellectual and transform him / her into a well-integrated individual.
Our carefully designed competency and skill based programme, provides a wide range of experiences and materials to foster and enhance physical, motor, social, emotional, aesthetic and intellectual development. It also allows ample time and opportunity for one on one contact with the teacher.
The focus of the curriculum is on development of skills which is achieved through age appropriate monthly themes (projects).
We strongly believe in emphasizing the thinking process, concept development and enquiry based learning in children. To achieve this objective, we use the Project Method which is multidisciplinary and integrated in nature.
