Jigyasa means 'curiosity' - the urge to know. It is this spontaneous quality which nature has so deftly embedded in each child that we, at Jigyasa, understand. We invite parents to join us and take a peep into the children's world of wondrous enchantment, which is their reality.
The curriculum at Jigyasa keeps pace with the world of today while equipping children with the skills they need for the future - not only in terms of academics, but also as complete individuals who are ready to take on challenges that they may be faced with throughout life.
Vision and Mission
Our Vision at Jigyasa is to create a nurturing environment in which children become confident and independent learners, and are ready to face life's challenges with positive self-belief and clarity of thought and action.
An environment which encourages values of care, courtesy, compassion and consideration.
An environment where freedom is celebrated and children learn to understand the responsibility of using it to the best advantage for personal growth, while understanding and respecting the rights of others around them.
Where excellence is a way of life and not a goal to be reached at the end of the learning journey.
At a Glance
Jigyasa is a new age school which uses the best methods available to prepare children for a world which is going to be very different. Here are some aspects which make it a very happy place for children.
Emphasis on Expression
Gone are the days when one could flash a few degrees and get a job for life. A 'job for life' has been replaced by multiple careers during one's lifetime. This means that being able to express one's ideas, opinions and thoughts in order to influence and engage people is a vital skill.
Children at Jigyasa have multiple opportunities to express themselves - through dance, music, role play, visual arts, speech and the written word. This ensures that they always have multiple avenues to express themselves.
The uniquely designed curriculum has gained recognition and won accolades internationally. The classrooms are set up as extended learning spaces which educators plan and equip in a scientific manner. We spend a lot of time planning activities which result in a whole lot of learning and a whole lot of fun!
The main drawback of a system which relies mainly on textbook learning is that the depth of learning is shallow. Our curriculum ensures that children engage with their learning using their minds AND bodies - resulting in intellectual, physical and emotional engagement.
Self Paced Learning
There is a strong emphasis on self paced learning. We recognize and appreciate that learning does not always progress in a linear fashion. Therefore, children are encouraged to work in accordance with their inclinations and thereby develop skills when they are ready to acquire them.
Children who move ahead quickly in one area might need more time in another, and all educators at Jigyasa are trained to accept this diversity. This makes for an inclusive and no-pressure learning environment.
Experiential and Cross Curricular Education
Ever since education became an item of mass consumption 150 years ago, the focus has been on equipping children with a base level of skills, resulting in uninterested learners who have little emotional connect with school. However, it is evident that the best learning happens when a learner immerses herself fully in an experience.
At Jigyasa, the curriculum is implemented using thematic units, and this gives teachers and children the opportunity to explore concepts as integrated parts of a whole, as opposed to as distinct 'subjects'.
