Our Kindergarten is a Montessori and CPS based system where learners are ready to learn by participating in various activities. Utilizing Montessori teaching techniques, the objective is to assist children to develop social, linguistic and interactive skills to equip them for the demands of further education.
Our Montessori teaching method is designed to allow children from diverse backgrounds to learn through natural learning, fun, structured, hands-on activities and to enjoy the experience of exploring and thinking for themselves. APS Kindergarten's mission is to nurture the potential in each child with respect and love, and to ensure that they are well prepared for elementary School.
As per the provision of the Education Actof Nepal, basic education spans from Grade one (I) to Eight (VIII). To ensure that students receive developmentally appropriate instruction, we have bifurcated the basic education into the Elementary wing (grade I – V) and Upper Elementary wing (grade VI – VIII). The Elementary School programme is based on the National Curriculum of Nepal, and is enriched by the application of the highly regarded international curriculums. The lessons are designed such that in every class, the students work in a number of ways that include pair and small–group work, individual tasks and whole-class discussions.
Significant time is given for students to think, model, draw, write, and talk about their learning experiences. In addition to the three core subjects (English, Math and Nepali), a thematic approach introduces other subjects such as Science, Social Studies, Computer Studies, Physical Education, Art and Music. From the Upper Elementary School onwards, students are taught in subject groupings in dedicated classrooms with the core subjects expanded to include Occupation, Business and Technological Education (OBTE), Moral Studies and Health and Hygiene.
