THE CURRICULUM THROUGH THE SCHOOL YEARS
Learning in Shikshantar is facilitated keeping in mind the specific requirements of the age of the children. The emphasis points at each age are based on children’s readiness, appropriateness of the curriculum and challenges suitable to take them to the next level of education.
Details on how curricular facilitation progresses through the years are in the curriculum pages of each school - Pre Primary, Primary, Middle & Senior.
