Pumpkin House Standards

Play

Play and learning go hand in hand, each building on the other and together they help children develop socially, emotionally, physically and academically. Learning happens very easily when there is an emotionally safe and a rich, stimulating environment.

Assessments

A continuous assessment of the child is done on a regular basis based on observation of the child’s pattern of work. Small anecdotes of a child’s daily routine and regular progress reports shared with the parents.

Joyful Experience

The most important and decisive factor is promoting the concept of joy in all its endeavours - be they natural, mental, social or emotional. For the all round development of a child it is essential that they do so with the full delight that comes with self awareness of sharing and caring, making it a joyful experience for both the teacher and the child.

Community Awareness

Parents play a crucial role in a child’s development and we at Pumpkin House encourage them to join us as partners in this exciting learning process. Development of a child’s mind and exposing it to thrilling new experiences is a three pronged effort involving the parent, child and teacher and it works best if we all pull in the same direction. Parents are invited for the school events and periodic parent teacher interaction and orientation on a regular basis. As such parents become an integral part of our school activities.
