Pre-Primary (IRIS Florets Powered By lovedale International)

We offer classes for Play school, Nursery, LKG & UKG in partnership with Iris Florets. Pre-primary education defines the early years of a child. There is rapid rate of development in the physical, social, emotional, intellectual and aesthetic state of children. Although the progression usually occurs in recognizable and predictable directions, it is unique in each child, occurring at varying rates from child to child, and inconsistently for each child.

For most children, these years also mark the first transition from home to a group experience outside of the family and to a new social setting. Lovedale School strives to make this transition as successful as possible by encouraging the development of secure and trusting relationships with new adults and peers.

The young child engages with the world in a direct and interactive manner and our school encourages an active learning approach through which children construct meaning from experience about the social and physical world that surrounds them. Lovedale School recognizes that areas of development and learning are interrelated in the young child, and its curricular framework allows for concept development that applies across subject-specific domains.

Primary

We build a strong foundation in your kids from classes 1st to 5th under CBSE curriculum. The program offers a comprehensive, inquiry-based approach to teaching and learning. It provides a thoughtfully designed model for concurrency in learning and incorporates guidelines on student learning styles, teaching methodologies and assessment strategies.

Concepts: Powerful ideas which have relevance within and across the disciplines and which students must explore and re-explore in order to develop understanding. Key concepts are expressed as questions – form (What is it like?), function (How does it work?), causation (Why is it like it is?), change (How is it changing?), connection (How is it connected to other things?), perspective (What are the points of view?), responsibility (What is our responsibility?) and reflection (How do we know?).

Knowledge: The body of significant and relevant subject matter we wish students to explore and know about. This knowledge is represented through six subject areas: languages, social studies, science and technology, mathematics, arts, and personal, social and physical education.

Skills: Those things the students need to be able to do to succeed in a changing, challenging world. The program identifies sets of disciplinary and cross-curricular skills, outlined below, that are acquired in the process of structured inquiry.

  • Thinking skills: the acquisition of knowledge, comprehension, application, analysis, synthesis, evaluation, dialectical thought, and metacognition
  • Research skills: formulating questions, observing, planning, collecting and recording data, organizing and interpreting data, and presenting research findings.
  • Communication skills: listening, speaking, reading, writing, and non-verbal communication
  • Self-management skills: gross and fine motor skills, spatial awareness, organization, time management, safety, a healthy lifestyle, codes of behaviour and making informed choices
  • Social skills: accepting responsibility, respecting others, cooperating, resolving conflict, group decision making, and adopting a variety of group roles.

Attitude: Characteristics that are expressions of fundamental values, beliefs and feelings about learning, the environment and people. Students are developing the following attitudes: appreciation, commitment, confidence, cooperation, creativity, curiosity, empathyand enthusiasm, 

Actions: Demonstration of positive action and service. Students are encouraged to reflect, choose wisely and to act responsibly with their peers, school staff and in the wider community. Through such service, students are able to grow socially and personally.

Middle School

Classes 6th to 10th are when your children get wings under the able guidance of our teachers. 

The Lovedale School is affiliated to CBSE (Registration No:  – All India Secondary School Examination).  The approach of academia is to provide stress free, child centered and holistic education to all children without compromising on quality. The curriculum is designed to achieve quality benchmarks in middle school education. We bring in innovative methods to achieve academic excellence in conformity with psychological, pedagogical and social principles.

We focus on the development of knowledge and skills in the core subject areas of Science, Mathematics and English complemented by Languages, Humanities and Arts.

The middle years are the most formative ones and we encourage students to become independent learners. We pay a great deal of attention to preparing students for higher classes and for the future itself. We inculcate skills such as reading and critical thinking that will hold students in good stead for the years to come.

A place to Learn & Grow Together

We lay a strong emphasis on inquisitiveness & social behaviour enabling our students to question, interact, learn & grow together.
