Dear Students and Well Wishers,
At Daisy Dales, we strongly believe that education is a preparation for life. To quote Charles Handy, “Instead of a national curriculum for education, what is really needed is an individual curriculum for every child“. In keeping with this adage, we try our best to give customized and bespoke attention to each and every student of ours. Research shows that environments that are nurturing and supportive promote optimal early childhood development, which greatly improves children’s ability to learn and adapt. The Pre Primary Curriculum is an innovative learning framework that incorporates specific learning outcomes and knowledge skills to align with children’s evolving needs and interests. It is divided into five key areas of learning: practical life, sensorial, arithmetic, language, and culture; which in turn are based on Dr. Maria Montessori’s findings of the significant developmental stages children move through from birth to age five and beyond.
Our teachers act as facilitators providing children with a well-organized environment intended to optimize their learning. This includes hands-on learning, adequate guidance, freedom of choice, co-operative social exchanges among children.
Our classrooms are designed to be child-friendly, well ventilated, bright, and airy with low shelves, stools, mats for comfortable seating. The teacher-student ratio is well adhered to, ably supported by a well-trained, caring and empathetic support staff. Within this environment, children participate in activities that are conducive to their emotional, social and intellectual development. The sequence of daily activities provides children with important preparation for school skills, such as concentration, working in collaboration, time management and the ability to follow instructions. In this way, Daisy Dales inspires children to become independent, self-motivated learners with strong academic foundations.
