CURRICULUM

When it comes to curriculum, Filix School of Education follows the CBSE guidelines and aspires to be a full-fledged higher secondary school in near future. But when it comes to teaching philosophy and methodology, Filix school of Education is a school that tries to make a difference in a child’s lifelong journey of education and experience building. 

We, at Filix believe in research oriented progressive learning methodology right from the preprimary years. The educators around the world agree that first hand involvement of children in learning activities can do wonders in early concept building and successfully creates worthwhile experiences for the lifetime for the child. Working on the same lines, we have framed our entire teaching philosophy as interaction based rather than merely instructional. 

The preprimary section follows the curriculum of International Montessori Association and the learning methods are built around pure Montessori philosophy featuring a no-strain environment where each child learns at his/her own pace. The children are involved in educational and fun activities through which they undergo peer learning, numerous sensory games and build up their fine and gross motor skills. We make it a point to ensure that our expansive campus is used liberally for the little ones so that they can spend ample time with nature which they love so much. We have a state of the art children’s park and a playground which has learning aids for them to use. A heady balance of indoor and outdoor activities is a part of our everyday time table at the preprimary school. While framing the curriculum of the primary school we have emphatically shunned the traditional rote learning approach and embraced the hands on approach of teaching and learning. It might be worthwhile to mention that NCERT in its guidelines encourages schools to take up activity and project based learning methodologies to enrich the educational experience of the children. The lessons in the primary school, comprises a number of class room activities, experiments, audio-visual inputs, nature safaris and cultural elements very carefully planned and incorporated by our experienced resource persons. Projects on electricity, horticulture, creative writing and many more are class room activities and everyday affair for our primary kids. The teachers act as friends and facilitators who guide the children in actively participating in these activities which in turn creates a joyful classroom environment. Music, dance and sports are integral part of our curriculum where each child participates with great gusto. We firmly believe that each child is endowed with curiosity and has a natural urge to learning. Through our methodology we simply kindle the spark which already exists in a child. We put our heart and soul to make the process of learning enjoyable and enriching in every single way. To sum up our educational philosophy we turn again to the immortal words of Swami Vivekananda, “Education is the manifestation of the perfection already in Man.”
