‘The Sixth Element‘, a Pre-School, Day Care and Evening Activity Centre is designed as a fusion of the five elements – Vayu (freedom and far reaching presence), Aakash (boundarylessness), Kshiti (positive and down to earth attitude, stability), Tejas (drive, passion and confidence) and Jal (peace and harmony) to engender the sixth element: ‘the spirit of enquiry; the unbridled joy of being’ through play, discovery and exploration.
Our child development methodology is inspired by the ‘genetic epistemology’ framework postulated by Jean Piaget who emphasized the importance of discovery knowledge; Vygotsky who introduced the role of social interaction in child development and Bruner who reinforced the role of the adult in helping a child develop cognitively.
The school philosophy and curriculum are designed around child like experiences and the belief that development approaches need to follow every child’s readiness to learn. In our experience this approach ensures that the child enjoys the learning experience while evolving as a strong individual, with a sense of self-worth, values, integrity and self-esteem.
