Methodology

Blue Bird Nursery has a well- designed, age-appropriate curriculum implemented through thematic and integrated learning.

Learning is designed at developing a “holistic” learner who develops academic abilities through an age-appropriate curriculum; well-balanced with extended learning opportunities that challenges and provides learners with purposeful activities and resources that are related to all areas of learning, respecting every student’s individuality as well as creating an understanding for the culture and interests of others. We also incorporate the Montessori philosophy which addresses all areas of development.

Student’s schedules are carefully designed to accommodate different learning opportunities and environments.
Class time tables caters for all developmental areas and include:

  • Literacy Development
  • Expressive Arts and Design Exploring and using media and materials
  • Numeracy Development
  • Sensory development
  • Digital learning
  • Physical development
  • Knowledge and understanding of the world
There are four guiding principles that shape our Nursery practice: Unique child: Every child is unique, constantly learning and can be resilient, capable, confident and self-assured. Positive relationships: Students develop respect for their peers and understanding of others cultures and traditions. Supporting environments: Children learn and develop well in environments that support their learning and their experience that respond to their individual needs in application to the real world. Learning and development: We recognize that all children develop and learn in different ways and at different pace.
Our teaching-learning methodology is based on the following unique developmental parameters:
MONTESSORI CLASSROOM: Our intricately designed Montessori Classroom is equipped with all the Montessori Material which facilitates child-centric learning. The Montessori room is one of the unique features of our schools. This set-up with all the tools and techniques of the Montessori Philosophy ensures the overall development of the growing child’s learning ability.
DIGITAL LEARNING :.Our nursery is specially designed to include a digital area with current up to date software in developing different mathematical , language, Scientific and social skills. Digital lessons are planned to also provide children with an extended learning opportunity for engineering and creative development.
SPORTY TODZ GYM: Sporty Todz is a scientifically designed sports program for Pre Schoolers based on the ABC (Action, Balance, Co-ordination) framework. We all endorse the universal fact that physical and mental development happens rapidly in the first 5 years of a child’s life. Sporty Todz focuses on engaging pre schoolers in age appropriate physical activities which further enhance their physical development and posture, simultaneously imbibing the quality of physical fitness at an early age.
Children go the gym five days a week for Fun Yoga, Gymnastics and age appropriate sports activities.
PLAY ARENA:
Play is needed for healthy development ofyour child. Research shows that 75 percent of brain development occurs after birth. Play helps with that development by stimulating the brain through the formation of connections between nerve cells. This process helps with the development of fine and gross motor skills.
Hence our play arena equipped with the state of art Play Equipments namely, sandpit , splash pool , Trampoline, Animal Rides, Super Slides etc .
ASSESSMENT & REPORTS:

Your child’s progress is observed, recorded and assessed throughout the year. This information is conveyed to you either in written or verbal form at least once each term. Our facilitators observe and maintain a daily record of your child’s activities in school be it academic , social or creative. We also notify our parents through our daily communication diary about the child’s daily achievements, learning’s and activities.

SECURITY SYSTEM
