The Pre-Primary School Program at Mount Litera Zee Schools comprises of Nursery, Lower and Upper Kindergarten (LKG and UKG). Early childhood education serves as the foundation for all future learning. It is the period of learning to learn. The MLZS pre-primary curriculum is delivered through the ILLUME methodology that was identified and perfected in a sister concern of MLZS, Kidzee, Indian’s largest preschool chain. ILLUME pedagogy is based on the following assumptions.
Every child is unique
Every child has infinite potential
Every child is born with an innate desire to learn
Every child learns best through observation
Every child learns and constructs her own knowledge in multiple ways
The ‘ILLLUME’ curriculum focuses on the developmental milestones in the areas of cognitive, linguistic, creative, social and physical development. This learning design leads a child to inquire and seek answers or to find answers on her own. Questions become the order of the day making thinking and creativity to be the norm. It seeks to give a complete experience to the child within the child’s range of experiences and understanding. This approach goes a long way towards shaping a wholesome and healthy personality and gets the child prepared for the primary program.
