Nursery I

Children in the Nursery 1 follow a syllabus that is guided by the requirement of the foundation stage. It has six areas of learning which covers children's physical development, language development, mathematical development, creative development, social development and emotional development.

Language development:

Our aim is to help the child identify and recognize letters, associate the letters with their phonic sounds, co-relate letters with different objects and to develop the child's language and vocabulary.

Pattern Writing: The child is trained in development of hand to eye coordination which later helps in letter formation. Skills are used to enhance concentration and build their pre-writing skills.


The child here is taught to identify and recognize numbers, get a perception of pre-math concepts like shapes, sizes, similarities and differences using hands-on activities like sorting, matching, comparing etc. The child is also made to understand numbers with their values 1 to 5.


The development of language and vocabulary is built upon the child's exposure to different general knowledge topics. This creates an awareness of the immediate surroundings. Activities like dramatics and class discussions are held to instill confidence in the child.

Creative & Emotional Development:

Through music, song, role-play, imaginative play the child's creative ability is developed further. Performance at class assembly / class day / concert is hence enhanced. This builds their self confidence and self esteem.
