At Asian World School, learning process has multidimensional approach, as per the needs, aptitude and interests of the child. We believe in “Hands on” experience approach, with modern creative and innovative techniques & methods. We are committed to Education- academic and non Academic. We want to give a child understanding of team work, leadership, ideas of winning and learning, where our Sports ground becomes a classroom. Lot of experience is given to children through, extra curricular activities like Music , Dance Drama and Art, where children express and fill their canvass with different colors, and learn the beauty of the rhythm.
Learning and teaching process is mainly divided into four area/stages, done with flexibility, keeping in mind learning curve of each child, recognizing the diversity in talents. The child’s graph of progress steadily goes high through these stages. The whole learning program is carefully designed, which is age appropriate, gives ample opportunities to explore, experiment and experience.

Our Nursery children explore their surroundings and people around them. They acquaint themselves with materials with different grips, they identify a larger number of shapes and colors as well as letters and numbers, they learn about patterns and other creative designs, they are exposed to a higher level of creative movement and storytelling, and they enjoy a sense of in-dependency through self-help tasks. Our curriculum is built around teacher and child initiated learning activities where both are active partners in the learning process.
