Pre Primary schooling at Bhagirathi International School helps children to learn and grow in a warm and stimulating environment which makes learning fun and an ever cherishing experience. We try to create an environment where children not only Learn, they actually Love to learn.
The pre primary school curriculum has been designed to nurture and develop the following objectives within the tiny tots:
Knowledge and understanding of the world around them
Under the supervision of experienced, dedicated teachers we help your child to understand and explore his immediate environment and the physical world. We also try to inculcate within them the basic technique of exploring, questioning and drawing conclusions from their learning.
Our curriculum at the pre primary school level has been designed to introduce mathematical concepts in a simple and tangible manner concentrating on one attribute at a time and progressing gradually.
The lessons are properly planned fostering development of problem solving abilities through activities, observation, analysis and discussions.
Language arts and phonics
Throughout the pre primary school years, emphasis is laid on comprehension, making it an integral part of language development. Phonics is used to teach English in a structured manner. The prime objective of the program is to develop the habit of reading and speaking within your child.
Physical and personal development
Physical and personal development is given paramount importance at Orchids – The International School, as it is a very important aspect of overall development. It fosters development of gross motor skills, stamina, balance, rhythm, strength, agility and concentration through variety of indoor and outdoor games and activities.
Small class size & Individual Attention
In order to provide proper individual attention, we maintain a very healthy teacher-student ratio in each section of 1:20.
Thematic learning through Field trips
A very important aspect of the curriculum, we provide an opportunity to our children to experience real life scenarios by taking them for visits to the post offices, fire station, aquariums etc. thus enriching the learning experience.
The primary school curriculum is planned as an extension of pre primary, focusing on all the developmental areas. The curriculum includes a well structured schedule that mixes learning and play, all carefully orchestrated for inspiring the kids to enjoy and learn, expand their horizons and improve their imaginations and creativity. It is Trans-disciplinary, thus helping students to correlate the learning with the real world scenarios. The objective is to inculcate self-study skills within the students, an essential element for success in middle and high school.
The syllabus is as per NCERT / CBSE/ ICSE, The focus is on developing the basic concepts in core subjects (English, mathematics, sciences, art, music and physical education) through activities, projects, and work-sheets.
English curriculum has been divided into the four key areas of – LSRW (Listening, Speaking, Reading and Writing). The tools used to foster development in the above mentioned key areas are guided reading program, show and tell, role plays, drama, songs, poetry, story-telling, essays and short story writing. These pave way for self-expression.
Participation in the classroom discussions is a very important tool for language development and it is highly encouraged at Bhagirathi – The International School.
English Language labs

At Bhagirathi International School, The students are taught and encouraged to go beyond the books and apply the concepts taught to real world problems. By the end of the primary school, children will be very comfortable in handling problems pertaining to numbers, shapes, measurement and data analysis.
The school curriculum lays due emphasis on experimentation as it enhances the understanding power of the students and makes the subject interesting for them. Children spend an ample time in various labs (physics, chemistry and biology) to verify and validate their hypothesis on various aspects on learning.
Games cultivate a sense of sportsmanship and team. At Bhagirathi International School the children are exposed to various sports – cricket, soccer, basketball, volleyball, tennis etc.(depending upon their areas of interest) for their physical as well as mental well being.
