Methodology

Our methodologies of learning focus on the student. Learning is made fun and effective through various innovative methodologies designed to engage the student actively. Students can expect learning to be both enjoyable and meaningful at SPS.

One of the significant objectives of SPS, Indore is to provide for balanced, overall development of the pupil. In accordance with this philosophy, activity at SPS extends beyond the classroom through our comprehensive Co-Curricular Activities programme, as a means to enhance social interaction, leadership, healthy recreation, self-discipline and self-confidence. The programme is designed for pupils to develop physically, emotionally, culturally and socially by providing them with opportunities to broaden their horizons, gain knowledge and skills, and generate an interest in a variety of areas they may not have previously experienced. It also provides a refreshing counterbalance to the demands of the students’ academic studies and encourages students to share their energy and special talents with others.

The curriculum encourages students to develop an understanding of key concepts. In the curriculum, at this level, concepts are represented by different examples that share common attributes. In this way, a sound base is built to equip them with appropriate attitude and skills.

The teaching is project based, activity oriented and content centric. Theme teaching is in practice to promote cross curriculum understanding.

Pre-primary is a term that is generally associated with the education or instructions for the children under the statutory school age. Pre-primary education at SPS enhances the skills of a child before his/her stepping into the primary school. It generally includes nursery classes and kindergartens. Pre-primary education is followed by primary education. This fundamental education is useful for children in many ways, it also helps them to get familiar with the school type environment.

The Montessori System of Education followed at SPS is the most scientific, comprehensive, effective and human system of early education. Here, children are guided in their activities by Montessori-trained teachers. They are trained through Montessori methodology. Our mother teachers play a very critical role in the development of the Child’s personality and intellect. The Montessori method addresses the issue of building self-confidence and self-esteem in a child. It has repeatedly been proved in studies that self-confidence should be instilled in a child early in life. To develop the holistic growth and the various facets of personality development of children; classroom teaching is supplemented with various relevant activities. These activities affect all domains of life such as cognitive (intellectual), emotional, social, moral, cultural and aesthetic

The importance of beauty in the Montessori classroom can be keenly observed in the Practical Life area of the classroom. Practical Life activities have a unique purpose which, when carried out properly, are very calming. These activities seem to be simple and repetitive but help in intellectual development, quality achievements, creativity and enthusiasm of children.
