“Education is our passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to the people who prepare for it today.” ― Malcolm X

The ideal product of any education is to enable the child to discover him or herself. At Kumarans, we listen to the wind as it blows around each child, and recognize that our role is to value, foster, enlighten and help develop that child to become truly her / himself.

The real achievement of education is teaching students to enjoy the process of learning and to apply what they learn to the world around them. For the child to deal effectively with his environment, it is essential that the classroom structure encourages the child’s efforts to solve problems that confront him. In order to achieve this, the school espouses a student-friendly approach to impart education. It follows an integrated educational method by teaching and reinforcing the concepts through interesting activities. Through these activities students imbibe the necessary concepts under the guidance of a teacher who is more of a facilitator in the process of learning. At present, children are growing up in a rapidly changing world of science and technology. If we do not appropriate the most suitable method of teaching, then we may be sacrificing the children’s early childhood at the altar of academic achievement. So, our child-friendly approach to education with limited home assignments reduces the burden of heavy school work and heavy school bags. This,in turn allows family bonding to develop as the parents get to spend quality time with their children.

“Tell me and I'll forget. Show me, and I may not remember. Involve me, and I'll understand.” is a famous saying and Kumarans strongly believes in it and emphasises on involvement and participation of the students in an active manner in the process of learning. The method of teaching through activities is unique, interesting and innovative. Children find hands-on experience more enjoyable than the traditional chalk-board method. This also facilitates the children to nurture inter-personal relations and the right ethos in their voyage of seeking and discovering knowledge.

Today, knowledge has expanded tremendously. So, the school leaves no stone unturned in its effort to bring about the overall development in a child. Through extra-curricular activities and collaborative learning, the school tries to achieve this.

Language pattern in primary school:

All schools affiliated to the Indian council for Secondary Education (ICSE) need to follow a three-language formula. The medium of instruction is English. Initially the emphasis is laid on developing oral language skills of the child and later on other skills like listening, reading and writing are integrated into the curriculum. English being the I Language is introduced in class I along with the Second language and III Language is introduced in class IV.
