Ms. Dipikka Rawat Marya, Chairperson:

I know how vital the choice of Preschool is in today’s scenario and how great is your investment in terms of time, trust as well as money.

At Saksham, we believe in the common principle that a child is never being taught. A teacher is not an instructor but only a helper and a guide. Each area at Saksham is mentally stimulating which motivates the child’s learning; encourage achievement providing an environment, which fosters a love for learning. Our curriculum evolves organically around nature, with a lot of access to open spaces and sunshine. Our true wealth lies in our human resources and our best advertisements are our parents and children.

Our endeavour is to help children develop to their full potential. A tremendous amount of care and nurturing goes into physical, mental and cognitive teaching methodology, which caters for the all round growth and development of the child.

Our motto “Every child counts” truly guides the entire team of Saksham at all times.

Ms. Shruti Rawat Chanana, Director:

The main aim of investing in early years of a child’s development arises from what kind of a society are we envisioning for our present and future. Children learn best by being immersed in an environment they can learn through direct or indirect imitation of practical activities. The children will first struggle with work, and by repetition, learning and unlearning move towards their constructive progress. I strongly feel that an environment is most essential to personalize learning and it should provide fodder to the curious appetites of  the children. It should be child centered and rich in a range of materials, resources and opportunities in which children can engage.

Come meet our warm and welcoming family of children and staff. See the work we do with our loving children under the care of our dedicated teachers. Only by visiting us, and talking to the staff here, can you judge whether this would be the right place for your child’s development.

Ms. Gina Bains, Principal:

Welcome to Saksham. What is it that you look for, in a school for your child? Are you looking for your child to be happy and excited about school, while learning to his potential? At Saksham, we take a child’s happiness very seriously.  Our creative curriculum allows teachers to expand on language, arts, math, shapes, colours, phonics, music, social studies and general awareness. Our children get to utilize their energy in multiple creative classes. We offer a hands on approach and individualization of each and every child. The social and emotional development of children begins at this age wherein they learn and grow into their own as well as prepare for formal education. These small steps lead to giant leaps as the children grow into confident, aware young adults.
