At The Times School, we nurture the development of each child emotionally, academically, physically, socially and creatively during their formative years. We help children build a strong foundation of basic skills and competencies, a strong sense of self, and an ability to ask questions and become curious about the world around them.
Our unique thinking and enquiry-based curriculum instills a sense of wonder and excitement for learning in all children. The Elementary curriculum strikes a perfect blend of pedagogical approaches of play-based learning and academic learning programmes that enable our students to become life-long learners. It focuses on the development of the whole child as an inquirer in both the classroom and in the world outside.
Hands on Activities
We believe that young children are intrinsically motivated to learn. Hence, we channel our students enthusiasm and curiosity into meaningful hands-on and play-based activities. Hands-on activities and active play are an integral part of the core curriculum. Such activities encourage our students to take risks and allow them to make mistakes in a supportive environment under the care of our trained teachers.
Thinking & Inquiry Based Curriculum
Our Thinking & Inquiry based curriculum begins at home, every single morning. Students are trained to promote critical thinking skills, freedom of choice, and initiative from the very onset. Students are then asked and quizzed about their decision in school and then asked to take ownership of their choices.
Mindfulness is also taught at our Elementary schools to aid the mental and physical well being of our students. Our young learners become more aware of their emotions, surroundings, decisions, and gain self-control in the process. Research shows that mindfulness has many benefits on students including increased concentration, emotional regulation, and compassion.
