Our aim is to create life entrepreneurs through holistic education and lifelong learning
INDUS YEAR BOOK
In Nursery Programme, a broad-based curriculum integrates a genuine love for learning through stories and language and expression, along with a focus on numerical concepts and exploration of the world around them. This thorough foundation is underpinned by a strong commitment to the social, emotional and cultural awareness of each child and realized through a creative and interdisciplinary approach to teaching and learning. Arts, sports, music and dance are seamlessly incorporated into the curriculum, affording multi-sensorial and comprehensive learning opportunities.
The primary focus is to help children gain independence socially, physically and emotionally whilst giving them opportunities to develop their linguistic, mathematical, creative and cognitive skills and helping them explore the world around them and orient themselves with the environment. We follow an inquiry-based approach that facilitates children’s curiosity and experiential form of learning, that goes beyond academics, catering to students’ signature strengths.
Our Reception programme caters to students from ages 3 years to 4 years. The curriculum encourages children to ask questions, plan investigations, explore various outcomes, and reach credible and logical conclusions, with teachers as facilitators. The curriculum is a balanced blend of five essential aspects: concepts, knowledge, skills, attitudes and action.
Language Development in our Reception is encouraged through active engagement with the three strands of language- oral language, visual language and written language. Logical thinking and numeracy skills are developed through an application-based approach through five strands, namely, Number System, Data Handling, Measurement, Pattern & Function and Shape & Space. Social and emotional growth is nurtured through our unique leadership curriculum that balances development of the Intelligence and emotional quotient. The innate creativity and curiosity of students is further nurtured through our music and movement programme and creative arts curriculum.
GRADE: PREP ONE
In Prep One, we construct an environment and pedagogy that is secure and enriched, where students are encouraged to become lifelong learners, both inside and outside the classroom. With a strong focus on conceptual learning and development of leadership skills, children engage in a transdisciplinary curriculum that meets international benchmarks for Literacy, Numeracy, Science, Social Studies and PSPE (Personal, Social and Physical Education).
Emphasis is placed on the acquisition of communication and thinking skills through a culture that encourages learner agency. The leadership curriculum at Indus plays a pivotal role in progressing toward our aim of unlocking the individual child’s potential. Leadership is developed by encouraging self-awareness, thereby enabling students to discover their complete range of multiple and emotional intelligences. Sports, community involvement, fine & performing arts and robust outdoor activities lend themselves to the fostering of leadership qualities. The focus is on connecting to self, connecting to nature and connecting to the community.
GRADE: PREP TWO
We offer the Prep 2 Programme for children aged 5 to 6 years of age. The core skills we help students to imbibe and strengthen are critical thinking, communication, collaboration and creativity. The Prep Two environment is warm and inspiring, filled with wonderful learning materials. We believe in following the child and helping them in attaining their potential capabilities. We endeavor to create a strong community where every child’s developmental needs are met and they truly experience the joy of learning.

SPECIAL EDUCATION NEEDS (SEN)
Indus Early Learning Centre, Hyderabad prides itself on being an inclusive School. We strive to cater to the diverse needs of students by ensuring that each student gets equitable access to the learning curriculum.
Our School is a place where we value the importance of effective communication within and beyond the classroom.
Effective communication defines how we think and learn and is a means to achieve a healthy global and local perspective that will enable the integration of additional languages. The teachers work in active collaboration with homeroom and other specialist teachers to support the learning. Our learning engagements are planned in a way to build confidence and improve skills in reading, writing, speaking and listening.
ENGLISH AS A SECOND LANGUAGE (ESL)
Our School is a place where we value the importance of effective communication within and beyond the classroom. Effective communication defines how we think and learn and is a means to achieve a healthy global and local perspective.
Our ESL teachers are all language teachers. Together, they help our students become confident in their English skills, which is the common language used in the school. They appreciate that students learn in different ways and therefore use a wide range of teaching methods.
Students with limited English language receive a combination of ‘pull-out’ and ‘push-in’ learning support, depending on their level of proficiency. The IISB ESL support programme promotes academic English proficiency that will enable the integration of ESL students into the mainstream curriculum in no less than two years. ESL teachers work in active collaboration with homeroom and other specialist teachers to support them.
Our courses are designed to build confidence and improve skills in reading, writing, speaking and listening. We also support our students in increasing their understanding of Science, Math, History and Economics. The courses provide students with opportunities to discover their self-worth through a range of enrichment activities.
