People call it the best junior school in town because of its unique academic delivery system where in children can grow and develop while reading, listening and playing. Here they move from dependence to independence, from shaky coordination to refined skills, from body language to verbal communication, from self-absorption to growing social awareness
Activity Room - Fun-n-learn being our motto of academic delivery system, it is therefore essential to provide them appropriate infrastructure to carry out this process. In the KGs, Hand-Eye coordination, mental and motor development, language skills are facilitated through the play-way method in the Activity Room.
Library - For the pursuit of knowledge as well as sensitivity towards issues of human concern it is imperative that individuals have access to a dynamic database. The School Library serves as the resource centre for accessing and compiling of useful information and an internet broadband supported network.
Teachers' Resource Centre - Technology aided learning has become a necessary adjunct in the academic process. Both for the updating of knowledge base as well as enhancement of class room concept dealing, a teacher in today's times has to be savvy enough to incorporate these elements for better understanding of subjects. The TRC serves as the hub of teachers' experiential learning.
Hobby Classes – A school is responsible for identifying and nurturing innate potential of a child, we firmly believe that every child can't top the class but can definitely excel in some other area of enterprise. Hobby classes such as Violin, Guitar, Clay Modeling, Public Speaking, Yoga, Aerobics, Western and Classical Dance forms, Skating, Chess, Rifle Shooting and the like not only provide the child respite from regular academics but also act as the catalysts for identifying his/her personal talents.
Our Faculty – We take great care in selecting teachers who will facilitate the growth of the child. They are individuals with a flair for handling children and a dedication to match.

This gives our children a strong foundation for life.
