Academics

Since 2013, we have continually evolved our pedagogy in the Preparatory Section under Vidya Soudha Kids. We follow our own unique VSPS curriculum in the Preparatory section, designed by the expert academicians of the Preparatory Group so as to enhance the MULTIPLE INTELLIGENCES among young minds.

We take pride in our dynamic and innovative programs, both academic and co-scholastic, which ensure that learning is joyous, meaningful and interesting.

Vidya Soudha Kids builds a warm, encouraging, supportive and enriching environment and experiences which are for a life time. Each tiny tot is considered as a valued member. Watch the video below to see what makes Vidya Soudha Kids so different, so special.

Our campus is extensively designed to cater to all the needs and requirements of the children for them to blossom as a wholly developed child.

The classrooms and the main areas are spacious, well ventilated and well designed to make it a enyoyable learning center. The furniture used are child safe and child friendly.

The stairs and corridors are carefully planned to ensure the safety of the children on regular days and during emergencies.

Vidya Soudha Kids adopts the cross-curricular activities to teach the kids that includes Rhymes, stories, role plays, field trips, AV sessions, dance, music, yoga, indoor & outdoor games.

Traditional teaching was only restricted to classroom with chalk, dusters and black boards. Now is the era of smart teaching where we practice teaching with technology. One of such smart methods adopted at Vidya Soudha Kids is MI KIDS, a phonic based international English learning programme designed to enhance speaking and reading skills of young learners. This programme is implemented with smart board and visualized methods for better learning.

“The education of a child does not aim at preparing him for school, but for life”, Maria Montessori

Providing students with multiple ways to access content improves learning”, Hattie. Hence, Teachers plan their lessons to cater to enhance the Multiple Intelligence amongst the students using a variety of their senses.

Pre preparatory emphasises on improving the kids physical, personal, emotional, social developments. The alphabet, numbers, pre-math skills and the general awareness topics are all introduced through colourful illustrations.

Prep 1 students continue with a more complex physical, personal, emotional and social developmental activities along with the introduction of writing Capital & small letters, numbers and words. A new, thoughtfully crafted vital part of English, phonics is introduced. This is a preface to make them all the more powerful with good and perfect English.

In the Primary Section there is a subtle mixture of the CBSE curriculum with ‘Active Learning’.  Therefore, our curriculum in these classes is structured to encourage and motivate students to become self-confident, self-reliant and self-disciplined, and thus help them achieve full potential. MI Kids program is continued in Grade 1 to enhance English learning.

Special Club Activities in the Primary Section create a fertile environment for collaborative and power learning wherein students open their creative mind box and hone special skills that helps them to experience fun in a very unique manner.

The High School section comprises of students from 6-9. At the High School level, students are regularly encouraged to conduct research at elementary and complex levels right from Grade – 6 onwards. For this purpose, the school infrastructure and curriculum enables the active use of school laboratories, the library and technology.
