FGA PROGRAM

We create a learning environment with a holistic view of the world for our young learners. We believe every child must be confident in their approach to the environment which they step into and be proud of their achievements within it. We are not looking for every child to be a super-hero in the world. But through our curriculum we are looking for a child who can 'give it a go' in the world. We nurture our young learners with love, care and attention.
In most schools, too much attention is given to the cognitive development. But we need to address all of the emotional, physical, relational, intellectual, creative and spiritual needs of our children at the same time. Our teachers are trained to look at every child as a whole individual, who has a unique potential to do well in all areas of development. In order to consider all aspects of development, different parameters are used by the school to address an individual’s need. Teachers, every fortnight, assess every student based on these parameters. Their confidence level, conduct and behavior, social skills and peer relations, health and hygiene, eating habits, and active participation in activities within the class are evaluated.

Hygiene – It is a parameter on which the students are given points on their good habits like washing their hands before and after the meal, use of napkin and handkerchiefs while sneezing, trimming of nails and hair etc.

Listen to instructions- Teacher observes the listening skills, level of patience and their ability as well as willingness to follow instructions while communicating with them in the class.

Enjoy my Tiffin – Enjoying their meal is a crucial parameter where teacher observes their eating habits and whether they are bringing nutritious food in their lunch box.

Friendly and helpful – ‘Sharing is Caring’. This is an important trait that the children are taught. The teachers keep observing the relationship that the child develops over a period of time with his/her peers.

Curious – Students are motivated to become more curious. Teachers assess the students on the basis of how frequently they ask questions from their day –to- day life.

Organised – Organisation skills are crucial for children where they learn things like arranging their school bags, arranging their notebooks on the desk, keeping colours in colour box etc. They are constantly monitored and evaluated on the basis of their ability to organize their belongings and the space around them.

Greet my elders – Greeting elders is a moral etiquette which needs to be inculcated in every child. The students are encouraged to wish all the elders while they are at school or at home.

LIFE SKILLS

Life Skills and academics go side by side. ATS Valley doesn’t believe in promoting academics only. Rather, we also make sure our kids learn Life Skills and become independent in many areas.  They learn to wash their hands, eat food properly (without spilling), wear their aprons, take off and put on their shoes. They understand the importance of greeting everyone they meet, learn to talk politely and to patiently wait for their turns.
