City prep school is a room full of giggles. We create a warm, loving, and nurturing environment that help enhance their all round growth to give children a life long foundation of healthy, confident and secure development.

Our programme promotes learning primarily through motor and social skills, pre reading and pre writing which later on develops into readiness programme and makes the coming years easy and exciting to learn, music, art, drama, dance, projects, discovery centers, field trips, outdoor play, and adventure. Our monthly themes are nursery rhymes as per the topic, free play – where they choose their favorite toys and corner.

Activity Time: Where colouful papers, child friendly objects, colours are offered which stimulate their curiosity and creativity.

Story and picture talk: Where the children become friends with butterflies and fly away with them to the fairy land.

Our Monthly Themes also include a colour day where children come dressed in that particular colour with related activities.

All festivals, national days, important events are marked which exposes children to language, culture, social skills and social behavior

Finally an appropriate balance is created where the need for pencil is made flexible through drawing, tracing and creating patterns. Children are now connected to a learning environment which is dynamic, progressive and responsive to the evolving world in their classroom. .
