Admission


GISC elementary school program will be designed for students of age 3 on wards. The program’s curriculum is developed based on modern teaching methods. In the 2019 session, the Playgroup class of the elementary School is-designed and structured to ensure all our curriculum objectives are met, and to provide the best possible foundation for our students. From the first year, we will also design our teaching methods and program structure for Play group, Nursery, KGI and KGII.
After conducting research on modern learning resources, and developmentally-appropriate methods, our carefully planned elementary School curriculum introduces and reinforces early concepts in math, science, language [Both Bangla & English], and physical development.
Our Playgroup program will be consisting with modern teaching methods, creative and well-designed learning resources, and an individualized approach to give students the best start in life.
The curriculum has been designed to cater to individual learning needs and foster whole child development through hands-on activities and learning through play. The Playgroup curriculum places equal emphasis on physical, social, emotional and personal development for our young students to become life-long learners who enjoy learning and know how to learn.
Highlights of the Playgroup program:

  • The school timing is designed for 3 hours for five days in every week, with structured and free play activities each day.
  • No more than 15 students per group, giving teachers the opportunity to work with students one-on-one.
  • Physical activity, indoor or outdoor, built into the schedule every day, in order to develop fine and gross motor skills.
  • Regular Linguistic improvement for both Bengali and English to help students learn how to communicate in age-appropriate ways.
