HOLISTIC EDUCATION

Early Childhood

Go right, go left. Come on, get your socks up, think straight! In a world taught to rely heavily on learning by rote, this program, me is a flagship Nalandaway offering geared to introduce the free flow of arts into conventional learning methods. The idea behind the programme is simple – to introduce literacy and numeracy in young children through storytelling and art.

heart

The methodology derives from NalandaWay’s philosophy of using arts for education and emancipation. Through introducing children to the arts at an early age, we wish to inculcate a sense of curiosity and develop a child’s interests in the world around them. Our program equips the children to express themselves authentically while also helping them negotiate the world around them.
