Presidency School



At Presidency Early Years, we have a child-centred approach. The curriculum and the activities involve learning experiences through active involvement with the materials. Children are encouraged to develop their love of learning.


We follow the five pedagogical approaches:

  • The constructivist approach: As students interact with their teacher and with each other as part of either whole class activities, small group activities, or individual activities, they practise using language in a variety of contexts, developing and honing many different skills as they do so.
  • The collaborative approach: the practise of breaking students into small groups to answer questions, work on small projects, and learn from one another—has become one of the strongest core philosophies operating in our classrooms.
  • The reflective approach: we encourage our kindergarteners to extend their thinking by asking questions and by modelling their own use of reflection.
  • The integrative approach: adopting an integrated approach to teaching and learning means creating learning experiences that enable children to draw meaningful connections across their learning experiences and between their learning and life experiences.
  • The inquiry-based approach to inquiry: based learning is learner-centred and focused, recognising that children learn in different ways. The different concepts and essential questions that guide inquiry-based learning are designed to be inclusive of all cultural backgrounds, experiences, and abilities.
Learning opportunities in the Presidency Early years means an experience of various types of educational experiences, including classroom, online, blended, self-guided, mixed delivery,  mentoring, and experiential work. Children feel physically and emotionally safe. They see the classroom as a place where they can be themselves and express themselves and their ideas without judgement. Students know that they are valued and respected, regardless of other factors such as ability, gender, sexuality, race, ethnicity, or religion.

Assessment opportunities are clearly marked throughout the unit lessons. These include suggested ways to gather evidence of learning in the context of the tasks and activities within the lesson. The success criterion included in each lesson is used to determine evidence of learning. Our children are not aware that they are being assessed, and hence they do not have the fears that come with formal assessments.

A walk through the Kindergarten will take you through a world of vibrant colors, music and activity based learning. Kindergarten is the foundation stage of the learning process and at Presidency we have laid a strong foundation to support the holistic growth of the child during the learning years.
The Kindergarten section follows the critically acclaimed Montessori model that adopts inquiry-based learning approach. This helps the child discover the world around him and instilling a sense of curiosity.

The curriculum addresses the uniqueness of each child and provides exposure beyond the academics. Mime, dance, music and field trips; sports and a range of hobby interests add new dimensions to the growth of the child.
