Our curriculum Extends beyond number & alphabets. It also encourages physical education, art & craft, scientific temperament and soft skill. We furnish many opportunities to our tiny tots to take part in co-curricular activities to broaden their insight. We conduct many competitions like bookmark competition, Drawing competition, Intersection quiz, Intersection spoken English competition, Fancy dress, Diya decoration, Dough modeling, storytelling competition, & rhymes competition just to name a few.
We conduct Aptitude Games for kids between 2.5 yrs. to 8yrs. every year; these fun learning games stretch brain muscles of kids in directions it never existed and test reasoning ability and speed.
We have a ‘Hobby Club’ which conducts classes in Modern Dance & Lawn Tennis. Children can come and pursue their interest through these classes. Field trips and special outings reinforce classroom lessons. Our children have visited the Domino’s, Ram Mandir, Buddhadeva nursery and Natural history museum a part of “out of class” learning. Special assemblies illustrating a particular concept expose our kids to an array of English skits & rhymes, Yoga & other physical activities, life skills, values, Dance & drama, throughout the year.
Sports & fitness–Uniquely designed races every year emphasize balancing of mental agility along with physical fitness. These test the skills and adeptness of our tiny tots in accomplishing a task & not just reaching to the finishing line.
