What Makes Us What We Are-
Inspired and sketched to raise kids between the ages of 8 months – 12 years into empathy driven, value instilled, independent, self-assured young global citizens who have the capacity and capability to face the rapid changing journey of life heads on. In recent years, researchers have stated that the human brain develops the vast majority of its neurons, and is at its most receptive to learning, between birth and three years of age. At Bella Mente we believe that education should equip one with a rational and scientific attitude. Hence our preschool and daycare follows a distinctive curriculum which is an amalgamation of the Vedic, Early Year Program and Reggio Emilia philosophy.
This alternative system of teaching is not entirely new to India; the Vedic and Gurukul systems of educations were based on the principle of acquisition of life skills, cultural and spiritual enlightenment in an environment that encouraged coherent thinking and interpretation among the children. Man is made by what he thinks . Hence true education, as per the Vedas, is to develop a pure mind, to propagate virtues and to entertain good wishes for all living beings. Maintain openness and respect in the face of racial, cultural, religion and linguistic diversity.
We have integrated the above program with the well balanced and structured Early Year Program. With years of documented research, results and framework, Early Child Care plays a vital and continual part in the early developmental phase of a child. This universally tried and tested teaching approach particularly focuses on the children’s inquiry-led and play based learning.
Few characteristic features that make this learning approach success are:
- Engaging through play and exploring.
- Active learning through motivation.
- Critical thinking.
- Creativity and skills.
Lastly, we have incorporated the famous Reggio Emilia to our carefully researched consolidated curriculum. Its foundation is on the philosophy that education should not only be about making the child’s mind capable of razor-sharp perception but also about expanding the horizons of human experience and becoming inclusive. We let our children be active participants where they are encouraged to self-discovery through self engaging activities. It is child-centered,joyful, and meaningful learning instead of “chalk, talk, and sticks”. The school offers a learning environment couched in the spirit of freedom and cooperation. The learning experience thus becomes multi-dimensional, cognitive, sensory, and emotional process.
At Bella Mente preschool and daycare we provide our kids with a stimulating learning environment. The caregiver displays faith in the inherent potentialities of each and every student keeping in mind that each child is unique and develops at their independent rate. We understand and recognize the differences in their capacity of understanding owing to diverse backgrounds and individual nature .We make sure that we are able to act as a resource for all students by catering to the students’ diverse needs.
