Pre-Primary School Program – The Pre-Primary School Program at Mount International School, Ludhiana comprises Nursery, Lower and Upper Kindergarten (LKG and UKG).
Early childhood education serves as the foundation for all future learning. These are the formative years of learning which play vital role in the life a child. The pre-primary curriculum is delivered through the ‘Activity’ approach based on the following points
Every child is unique.
Every child has infinite potential.
Every child is born with an innate desire to learn.
Every child learns best through observation.
Every child learns and constructs her own knowledge in multiple ways.
The activity based curriculum focuses on the milestones in the area of cognitive, linguistic, creative, social and physical development. The learning design leads a child to inquire and seek answers. A variety of experiential activities are planned for delivering themes based concepts. Curriculum provides numerous exposures to nurture sensory and gross motor skills, and also small muscle and large muscle activities for physical development of children. To cater to educational needs of children, the school has multiple teaching aids like interesting audio – visual aids, interactive white board, various toys and games for cognitive development and a series of teaching material for introducing concept that build strong recognition among children.
The integrated method is holistic, child centered with no compartmentalization of subjects. It seeks to give a complete experience to the child within the child’s range of experiences and understanding. This approach goes a long way towards shaping a whole some and healthy personality and prepares each child for primary school.
PRIMARY SCHOOL – Learning happens best when it is connected to the real world we live in. The main objective at this stage is preparing the learners’ foundation and readying them to take on the responsibility of being an active participant in the learning process. The Primary School Program focuses on the child’s unique potential both inside and outside the classroom. We have started following NEP 2020.
By the time a child moves from the Primary School Program to the Middle School Program, he/she makes major progress in learning to learn.
MIDDLE SCHOOL – At this age, children are in a stage of intellectual and social development and they begin to connect themselves with the community in a larger sense. To cater the needs of this age group, an integrated package of teaching, learning and assessment is delivered through NEP policy. Students are directed towards independent learning and are guided to take on more responsibility. The main objective of this stage is to help the children make connections between the meaningful experiences in life and the course of studies.
SECONDARY SCHOOL – Now the stage is set for shaping the future based on subject preferences and skills gained. During this stage, the main objective is to hone the knowledge and skills gained at the Middle school.
Educational Tours – The School organizes for every class, educational excursions to places of historical and scientific interest within the city and its outskirts every year.
