Joyland Montessori School
“Education is the most Powerful weapon which you can use to change the world”.
“ Compulsive education in school could at times be outdated and sometimes not practical. Children are great imitators so we as parents and teachers should give them something great to imitate. We at Joyland Montessori School with our motto “ EXPLORE AND LEARN” help each child to grow up in a very special way. The first step a child takes matters a lot, the first word a child speaks is very important, so in the same way , the first school you choose for your child will definitely leave an everlasting impact on the child’s development. We at JOYLAND endeavour to provide an environment for the overall development of young minds and train them to be useful citizens of tomorrow. We also believe that a HAPPY child will always learn better so HAPPINESS as a part of our curriculum makes learning funfilled and creative for our kids. Montessori Education brings out the best in each child and allows them to express themselves more creatively and enables the child to reach his/her full potential.
OUR AIMS AND OBJECTIVES
- To provide an environment for the overall development of a child.
- To inculcate morals in a child through practical learning.
- Make our children self reliant.
- Make learning fun with funfilled and creative activities.
- Focus on a Happy Childhood.
A child starts schooling at the age of 2+. What the child has learnt at home with parents matters a lot. Children at this age are imitators and have a very good sense of observation. A lot depends on good parenting, We counsel parents at the time of admission. Any walk in Enquiry for admission is guided with tips of parenting which will help the child to settle down in Pre school.
When a small child enters his/her school age , parents start searching for a school. Finding the right school matters a lot. Once the child starts going to school, the parents specially the mother and the children undergo Separation Anxiety. Learning will take place only when the child accepts the school as a second home and the teachers as their mothers.
We at Joyland try to make the first experience of education memorable for kids as well as parents. A child will never start learning with books in a routine way. Today education is not just the curriculum but the overall development of a child. We cater to children from the age group of 2+ to 8+. Right now we have classes from Pre-Nursery (Joyplay) to Class -3rd and will be adding one class every year
