At Budding Blossoms, the Pre-Primary section of Children’s Academy Group of Schools, we certainly recognize the importance of the first 1000 days of a child’s school life.
A lot of fun and play-based activities are infused into a carefully crafted curriculum to focus on each of these domains:
Program initiated in the Primary section is on the lines of ‘Vidyapravesh’ to bridge the gap between the Sr. KG and Grade I. The intent is to ensure that all children are exposed to a warm and welcoming environment when they enter Grade-I, leading to their smooth transition to the Primary section. This helps students in building their confidence and grasping new information efficiently while piquing their interest. We utilise our high quality inhouse resources for foundational literacy and numeracy and creative lesson planning by our team ensures the students remain engaged in the classrooms. Asking questions, teamwork and communicating thoughts and ideas clearly is encouraged through different projects and activities that incorporate the ICSE curriculum. Some of these activities are listed below:

Learning and growing should be fun and education without activities is always incomplete. At Children’s Academy, we seek to develop the whole person through experiential learning at every educational level. Along with intellectual stimulation, our students are exposed to a judicious mix of co-scholastic pursuits to nurture their interests. Skill-based & Fun activities In a rare display of bubbling talent, our students recite poems and narrate stories, play roles through street plays, engage in MUN (Mock United Nations) sessions, and delve into our cultural heritage through State Darshans, Annual Days, and many more festivities! Music, drama, and art are for the students who have a flair for the performing arts. The morning assemblies, yoga sessions, PT drills, sports, and games, cheer up the school environment and are intertwined to make education more meaningful. JAM sessions, Animal Party, and Nature trail add a distinct flavour to the curriculum of our tiny tots.

Our children participate in elocution and recitation competitions, acting and singing competitions, debates, quizzes, and many more activities. Our aim, again, is to provide a base for the intrinsic talent of the students and provide them with the training necessary to take this talent to the next level.
At Children’s Academy, we believe in creating responsible citizens and as they say, ‘Habits caught young, stay for a lifetime’. We consciously undertake several activities to introduce to our students the aspect of social awareness and social responsibility to build the strength of character. The approach is non-coercive and a participatory mode is adopted so that the learning is lasting. Our Academy boasts of an environment where the educator is respected for his/her expertise and is always available to help, encourage, clarify, and motivate whenever the student needs it. We believe that every student is unique, has his/her own inherent abilities that will bloom with the right mentorship. Our students are appreciated for their willingness to take responsibility, become involved, and work towards achieving their goals successfully.. We thrive in an atmosphere of mutual trust and respect. We instil among the learners a deep-rooted pride in being Indian, not only in thought, but also in spirit, intellect and deeds. Through various learning activities, we help develop knowledge, skills, values, and dispositions that support responsible commitment towards the nation, human rights, sustainable development and living, and global well-being, thereby reflecting a truly global citizen. We believe that if empowered, our students can change the world!
Academic achievement, in accord with the ICSE curriculum, isn’t all that Children’s Academy is renowned for. At Children’s Academy, we aim to raise well-rounded individuals who can excel in various fields. When it comes to sports, our main aim when working with children is to begin developing their love for sports and extracurricular activities that they have an aptitude for. We believe that each child has an ingrained talent and our aim at Children’s Academy is to identify this talent, provide a base for it, help develop it, and help them succeed in whatever field they choose. Our result in the sports field speaks for itself. We can proudly say that our children have excelled at sports from the interschool to the National level. But sports are not the be all and end all of extra-curricular activities. The aptitude of some children lies elsewhere. Leadership skills, team spirit and discipline aren’t only learnt on the sports field. They can also be learnt on the dais and we have provisions for everyone.
