According to a dictionary definition, education is any experience that has a formative effect on the way one thinks, feels, or acts. That broad definition is exactly the way we approach our educational strategies. Whether its math, science, literacy or respect and tolerance, we offer experiential learning opportunities for the children.
Children in their first five years normally are excited to learn and to experience many different things. We offer experiences involving sights, sounds, smells, tastes, feelings, and touch. All of these activate and reinforce specific neural pathways in the young child’s brain and, as the definition states, it has a formative effect.
The main areas of education at Shantivanam are covered under our two programs, Learning and Enrichment and Character Development.
