For Pre-Primary

We have put in a lot of effort in framing appropriate learning material. Our books, work sheets, lab activities that use practical life material, sensorial materials, spindle boxes, metal insets etc. and other learning material has been carefully researched and selected. We have maintained high standards in terms of academics.

Our curriculum is the backbone of Amrit Jyoti. The basic principle of our curriculum is “Child Development” and “Child Learning”. We believe in stress-free learning. Our children are not forced to learn, but encouraged to participate and are involved in various sensory, exploratory, spiritual  and interesting activities to foster their holistic development.

Subjectivity
We experience the world subjectively thus we create subjective representations of our experience in terms of the traditional senses of vision, audition, tactition, olfaction and gustation such that when we — for example — rehearse an activity “in our minds”, recall an event or anticipate the future we will “see” images, “hear” sounds, “taste” flavours, “feel” tactile sensations, “smell” odours and think in some (natural) language. Furthermore, it is claimed that these subjective representations of experience have a discernible structure, a pattern.

Consciousness
It is bifurcated into a conscious component and a unconscious component. Those subjective representations that occur outside of an individual’s awareness comprise what is referred to as the “unconscious mind”.

Learning
An imitative method of learning is claimed to be able to codify and reproduce an exemplar’s expertise in any domain of activity. An important part of the codification process is a description of the sequence of the sensory/linguistic representations of the subjective experience of the exemplar during execution of the expertise.

Learning Toys
Our selection is based on the following observation:
“All toys are learning toys, but, the toys that work best” –

  • are 90 percent child and 10 percent toys
  • can be used in multiple ways – again and again
  • inspire creativity and imagination
  • can be used with others

Meaning: Simpler is smarter. High-tech, high-cost gizmos with digital bells-and-whistles aren’t necessary to elevate your child’s intelligence. Instead, we use vintage toys such as rubber balls, clay, crayons, art supplies, building blocks, and other construction toys that enlist a child’s imaginations and small-motor skills to build castles, forts, and playhouses.

At Amrit Jyoti, we have a list of materials that help children learn, including paper, pencils, crayons, scissors, glue, tape, cardboard boxes, easel paints, water colours, sand, play dough, building blocks, puzzles, dress-up clothes, hats, props, dolls, doll clothes, and simple musical instruments.
