Pre-primary

The years spent in preschool are the most impressionable in a child’s life. Chennai Public School is a happy place where every little child is eager to get a head start and share the life of learning in a joyous way.

Early childhood education program at CPS has evolved over the years and combines the best practices of the time tested approaches such as Reggio Emilia, Maria Montessori, Kindergarten and the latest educational research, with the key focus being on behavioural education. This unique pedagogy is designed to be mentally stimulating, academically enriching and is the perfect conduit for young learners to begin their transition towards classic schooling. As an outcome, the blended curriculum provides a clear roadmap towards guiding a child’s social, emotional, cognitive and physical development to enable children to be inquirers, explorers and true leaders of their own learning.

Chennai Public School, Thirumazhisai offers three levels of child-centric early childhood education:

International Pre Primary 1 (IPPI) - 2½ to 3½ years
International Pre Primary 2 (IPP2) - 3½ to 4½ years
International Pre Primary 3 (IPP3) - 4½ to 5½ years

Learning Environments:
CPS views young children as individuals who are curious about their world and have the powerful potential to learn from all that surrounds them. Enriched Learning Environments are created to make the little ones comfortable in the school ambience and focus on inquiry based learning. Every learning cove permits the child to explore their natural instincts and learn as per their own need and phase at any given moment.

We strongly believe that relationship driven environments allow children to explore, collaborate and discover things around them and make sense of the real world and their personal experiences in it. This permits the child to explore their natural instincts and learn as per their own needs and pace at any given moment. Teachers employ strategies to expose children to a wide variety of educational opportunities that encourage self-expression, communication, logical thinking and problem-solving.

Through these environment based learning, the following six learning outcomes are exhibited by the young learners of the Early Childhood Education Program.
Chennai Residential School

Literacy Hub
One of the main goals of any early childhood education is to aid young children, develop a love for reading. Early learners greatly vary in their literacy needs. At CPS, the development of language among early learners is chosen from the best practices of the U.S. Waterford curriculum for speaking, reading and writing that provides each student a unique experience tailored to his or her own skill level and pace. It ensures that students are grounded in early reading to get trained in phonics, phonological awareness, comprehension and vocabulary, language concepts, writing and fluency. This hub also houses a haven of books of all genres for children to self propel their interest in reading.

Numeracy Hub
Numerical development is multifaceted. Young children are in a sensitive period for order - and the study of it helps them to satisfy the needs and interests that go along with this developmental stage. Early childhood numeracy encompasses much more than counting and knowing some elementary arithmetic facts. Through concrete hands-on activities and manipulatives, the numeracy hub guides students’ to develop apt numeracy skills through well designed activities such as counting, solving, measuring, sorting, noticing patterns, adding and subtracting numbers.

Nature’s Cove
Young children are intuitive scientists. They observe, ask questions, investigate, collect data and work out what it means, which is their basis for understanding their environment. The nature’s cove helps students to connect to the world around them through interactive sensorial learning experiences that help channelize their imagination and unlock their creativity. We bring nature into the classroom, and students are taken for a nature walk to make connections and apply their learning in the real world. These exercises are designed to sharpen the senses of the young child and enable the child to understand the impressions he/she receives through them.

Geek ‘o’ Corner
A blend of life skills and general knowledge, this environment plays a vital role in the holistic development of the student.

Learning life skills at CPS is inevitable as we groom the little ones to be masters of all times. Children are initially introduced to practical exercises using most of the materials seen at home but would not have laid their hands on. The life skill exercises such as care of the self, care of the environment, grace and courtesy, and control of movement help them develop concentration, gross and fine motor skills, eye-hand coordination, good working habits and pay attention to details as they follow a regular sequence of actions.

CPS empowers students by opening different avenues of information. Given the freedom and support to question, probe deeply, and make connections, our kids grow up to be confident, enthusiastic, and self-directed learners, accountable to both themselves and their community. They think critically, work collaboratively, and act boldly and with integrity.

Mind Lab
Children are born with a sense of curiosity and inquiry. Teaching science through playful experiences is an important approach to promote early learners developing an understanding of science concepts. In the mini science lab, they get plentiful directions to investigate, perceive, learn and understand the world with the help of daily life situations. The presence of a readily available lab for practical learning at this young age catalysts and catapults children’s interest in the wonders of science.

Creative Art Studio
The most important value of integrating artistic learning is to allow children to explore their own creativity. Children’s aesthetic sensitivity and imagination are appreciated by their participation in diversified creative activities such as music, dance and arts. When art is integrated in the early years, they get ample opportunities to express themselves visually what they may not be able to say verbally. Our art studio has sprung up to pioneer our children into depths that have existed beyond their imaginative contemplation. Hearing music, singing songs, and moving to the beat incline the children to a rich musical experience to build a higher self esteem, concentration and considerable social, emotional and physical benefits.

Globe Theatre
Dramatization is the most significant model and basic activity for learning. To channelize the child to develop their imagination, a special environment is created to introduce new ideas such as the world of fantasy, planets beyond, fictional characters and so on. Thus children learn to be creative, think out of box, develop vocabulary, express emotions, overcome fear, draw on their knowledge and experience of the real world in order to create a make believe world.

Free Play
Children’s play is like ‘fireworks’ going off in the brain. At our campus, kids play area awaits play hungry children as it promises to provide opportunities to expand their imagination; develop a sense of independence, self-confidence, and feeling of accomplishment. Outdoor play offers a good opportunity to connect with nature and indoor play helps them to relax, have fun and at the same time learn many important life skills. In this safe and secure den, children are exposed to ball pits, giant legos, adventure zones, huge playstations with slides, bridges and tunnels along with other soft play equipment and imaginative play materials. Thus the controlled and hygienic positive play environment makes them the best place to develop fine/gross motor skills.

Under the able guidance of knowledgeable, reflective and qualified early childhood professionals, integrated-learning environment at CPS is made conducive for a smooth transition from home to joyful schooling.
