Spice Valley provides pioneering effort to give quality & creative education to our Kindergarten children. Our unique education method, ‘Quad Seek’ was originally researched in USA and adapted by our Consultants Mrs. Aruna Raghavan & Mr. Raghavan, who are well known experts in Child Education & Development.
The human brain grows between the age of 0 to 6 years and a child is also the most curious during this period, which makes it the best time for learning. Thus, this is the platform where we first introduce the ‘Quad-Seek’ method to our children, to ensure an all-round growth in them.
Our method of learning follows the natural way of learning, focusing on 4 aspects of development i.e. Physical, Intellectual, Emotional & Spiritual. Unlike most other methods, we have a systematic approach and have clearly defined activities for development of a child, which we can do a number of times, every day for each child, depending on child’s interest & growth.
Our Physical Programme focuses on aiding for the development of brain and fine tuning the sensory organs, to prepare the mind and body for better learning. It includes the system which we have adopted a physical program designed to strengthen the visual, auditory and tactile pathways of a child. This will also lead to keen interest in sports at higher age and a high level of coordination & concentration of the child.
Our Intellectual programme simultaneously helps to stimulate our mind is refined, by offering vast amounts of knowledge to their immense curiosity. It includes - Children the ability to learn words through continuous interaction with teachers and flash cards, that can be flashed with planned frequency. Through that knowledge of words and stories, interest in reading is cultivated. Our children will be introduced to the world using plenty of pictures as a primary window. Pictures are the physical representation of words. Language is built through pictures. The outcome of this system are:
Children will be able to read simple English. During the same period, our children would also learn to recognize all the states of India,the geography of the country, the continents, people of the world and a wide range of flora and fauna.
The world map and the map of India.
Words learnt in the reading program (like fruits, vegetables, animals, associationbirds, flags, etc.) are brought back in various contexts (shape, size, taste, hybrids, nutrition etc.),to build and to ensure the conversion of information to knowledge.
Children would learn simple arithmetic and addition / subtraction by the age of 5. Extensive and methodological use of flash cards would be used to enable our children to learn correctly, with faster speed and greater joy.
Children would also be introduced to science as fun from pre-school, like showing whirlpools in a bucket, experiments on air or introducing them to magnets.
Our emotional programme helps to balance out the draining of ourself – physical or intellectual activities may cause, by weaving daily schedules with activities.
Our Spiritual programme aims to ensure that among their acquirement of knowledge and intellectual growth, our children also learn to be so sensitive, respectful and contributing members of society. We do so by –
Converting biographies of famous personalities into human interest stories.
Dramatizing events so that the causes that lead up to it, or the consequences of it, are better understood.
