Teaching Philosophy

Children learn spontaneously through ‘Child-centred’ activities in a prepared environment, without external pressures.
At Akshara we equip the child through multi-sensorial stimulation. Activities and projects are designed to integrate subjects like language, mathematics, science, art, sports, dance, music, etc using a variety of methodology, thereby overcoming artificial subject barriers. This enables children to have a more practical and realistic view of the world around them. As the learning process is based on hands-on experience and exploration by the students, the role of the teacher becomes that of a facilitator. Students are encouraged to take an active part in their own learning and to use their own initiative to develop into independent learners with a strong desire to think critically.
Our curriculum is designed to be thought-provoking and with the aim of helping our students to become life-long learners. We believe the content and process of learning should be appropriate for each age and stage of development of the child. The curriculum focuses on physical, sensory, cognitive, language, social, emotional, personal, and aesthetic aspects, thereby developing the ‘whole child’.
