Q. What kind of curriculum do you follow?
A. Playway method of learning is a child centric method where the method of teaching is informal and
natural to suit the child’s interests. Our belief learning is best through play activities.
We make teaching more lively and interesting. We teach languages, mathematics, social studies etc through a series of activities like games, songs, free play, gardening, construction activities etc. The learning is not just limited to cognitive development, but also for the overall development of the child. A few methods and techniques included in this method are Role plays, Projects; Theme based learning, Field trips, Puppetry etc.
At our schools we also follow some level of formal learning as well, to ensure that the child is ready for the primary education.
Q. What are your unique differentiators?
A. Apart from the curriculum, our other unique differentiators are:
At RAINBOW Pre-School International, we believe that the environment is the third teacher. Our pre-school environment is richly and carefully resourced to stimulate learning and development in children. The environment will engage your child to become an active participant in the learning process.
At RAINBOW Pre-School International, our greatest strength lies in the exceptional quality of our teaching staff. They are well-qualified, experienced and have a deep understanding of children. Our teachers are frequently provided opportunities for training and professional development..
We view parents as our partners, advocates and collaborators and involve them in every aspect of children’s learning. The school maintains an open door policy and you will be continuously updated about your child’s progress through our in-depth documentation process, where teachers maintain records of your child’s work.
Q. Will my child face any problems when he/she joins a local school in Grade 1?
A. We use the National Curriculum Framework as a guideline, ensuring that children graduate from Sr.KG and are fully prepared to go on to Grade 1 in a local school.
Q. How does RAINBOW Pre-School International differ from a Montessori?
A. The Montessori Method of teaching is purely based on ‘learning using Materials’. The curriculum is tool based and children learn the concepts using the materials specifically designed to teach age groups over 2.5 years. At RAINBOW, the environment which is the third teacher is carefully planned and well-researched provocations are set up by teachers to encourage children’s natural curiosity. Teachers help children to drive their own learning and make meaningful discoveries. The curriculum is an emergent one which arises from play and shared investigation.

Sr.KG – 1:15
