Kingdom School leverages across-the-board excellence in academics, sports and games, fine arts, social skills, ethical values and moral character. This is achieved by a blend of an unique teaching method and a very high standard of repertoire of academic prowess, skills, competencies and values among the staff members. Kingdom School’s signature learning model based on the foundation of MONTESSORI METHOD is central to the way students learn. This and ICSE cum ISE stream of learning are the enablers for the development of high standards of learning-effectiveness and leadership Kingdom students exhibit.
Conventional education system emphasizes memory power alone for scoring high scores in exams. Kingdom School, however, primarily focuses on development of “intellectual capabilities” in addition to the memorization skills. It is the “Thinker” who innovates, who creates and who adds value by quantum leaps. Kingdom students are encouraged and trained to be ‘THINKERS’.
The discipline too is different in Kingdom School. One will not find cold prohibitions here. The natural uninhibited mischievous nature of the child is never broken here. Rather, the student is guided in a gradual growth towards self-control, a higher level of discipline. The student is allowed a large measure of liberty without licence, which forms the basis for real discipline.
The environment is non-competitive and non-judgmental to enhance self-confidence and self-respect.
Kingdom School lays strong emphasis on character building. The management and staff practice what they teach. In a co-educational environment, the students are counselled and guided to develop healthy friendships among themselves.
PARENT’S ROLE Vital Principles – Some Do’s & Don’ts
We are committed to maintaining an environment that supports inquiry and academic excellence, emotional and physical well-being, appreciation of the arts and diverse cultures, integrity and ethical behavior.You and the School are jointly responsible for the development of your child.
- During the initial three years of schooling, advanced and unique Montessori Method and a natural timetable with a distinctly different curriculum are applied to help the child develop well.
- The learning activities are meant to serve the child’s purpose and not that of adults’ usual expectations. These may appear strange to you but be patient and see the explosion of learning in your child.
Encourage your child to carry out small daily chores at home such as:
- Emptying the wastebasket.
- Tidying up the child’s own bed.
- Tiding the bed.
- Setting the table.
- Watering the plants…
Of course, your child’s work would not be up to your standard of neatness, but be patient and appreciative. Acknowledge fulfilment of the responsibilities with sticker or star and a word of praise. This encourages a sense of self-respect and accomplishment. Never promise bribes for carrying out the responsibilities or for succeeding in the exams, for this would instil a wrong value in the mind of the child.
- Encourage creative artwork with crayons, paints, paper etc. Display their work proudly.
- Label your child’s items. Use big and small letters. This encourages the child to read and use more labels. This brings out a sense of orderliness in thinking and behaviour.
- Encourage better listening skills by giving instructions only once.
- Read a story or an article to your child every day for at least a few minutes.
- Lay down rules that would encourage the children to do the right thing. Set out areas where the child may draw – may be even a particular area in a wall in the child’s room.
- Talk with your child about the school. Do not force him / her to talk but do encourage.
- Use words of good manners such as “Please”, “Thank you”, “Welcome”, “Excuse me”.. in your talk with your children. This would develop social skills in them.
- Set good examples for your children. They are very observant. If your lifestyle or manners contradicts what you teach them to follow, they will receive mixed signals and disregard your instructions as meaningless. When you teach them to brush their teeth at night, let them first see you do that.
- Always expect the best out of your child, but his / her best and not yours. If the child disappoints you, discuss the same with your child. If he / she meets or exceeds your expectation, tell him / her how much you are delighted. Teach them to accept shortcomings or failures with dignity, without condemnation or self-pity.
- Smile and laugh with your children. Even when you have to be serious sometimes, a chuckle at the appropriate time will relieve the tension in the child to set a positive mood. He / she will feel better.
- Do not talk to strangers or accept rides with anyone without permission from elders.
- Stay on the edge of the road while waiting for your school bus / auto.
- Never stand behind school bus / van.
- Stand still as the vehicle approaches. Do not move until it has stopped.
- If you drop something near the vehicle, leave it. Ask an adult to get it for you.
- It would be wise, to set up a Pass-word between the parents and the child. If a stranger approaches your child saying that you sent them, your child should ask for the Pass-word to confirm that you sent them.
Instruct your child on all safety practices essential for their protection.
