A child comes to school to learn, understand and develop.
The idea is to make learning interesting and understandable to actually achieve these goals.
So, the whole academic process has to be broken down properly into manageable units and then presented to the child.
The team at St. Francis School has done just that.
We follow the method of programmed learning, researched and developed entirely at St. Francis School. The content that has to be taught to the child in each period, for each subject is planned in advance. Multimedia presentations are made so that the children understand the concept properly. There are comparisons with known situations, demonstrations, animations, charts, diagrams and graphs all which enhance understanding. This is the first introduction to the topic.
Competence in language, reading, mathematics, science and technology is developed systematically. Teachers integrate subject knowledge into a variety of active techniques suitable to the developmental stages of the children. Maple Bear schools have high learning expectations of children within a healthy, stimulating and supportive learning environment.
Children are naturally curious about their world and are eager to learn about it. They need to manipulate, explore, and experiment with real objects. Play is the serious work of children.
