Origin and History

Our Team of Educators
At Seth M.R. Jaipuria Playgroup, our commitment is to weave a magical atmosphere where the unparalleled innocence, spontaneous joy, infectious smile, reverberating laughter, unending curiosity and inimitable spirit of exploration finds a medium where it multiplies many fold .
We recognize the fact that our children at this age are not built to sit still, be quiet, walk in a straight line or keep their hands to themselves. They need motion, they need novelty and they need to engage in the world with their whole body. They are insatiable consumers of sensory experiences. Therefore, our curriculum is scientifically designed to constantly surround them in an environment that engages their curiosity and allows their senses to explore. Our environment is rich in learning potential.
At the Jaipuria Playgroup we strive to celebrate the mind. We believe that each and every progress of the mind is a noteworthy milestone to be celebrated; even to be able to identify the letter A is immense progress for achild and it must be acknowledged and celebrated. Therefore, our cognitively engaging curriculum is curated to not just teach your child to count and read; instead, it shall activate his natural desire for lifelong learning.
The USP of Seth M.R. Jaipuria lies in our conviction that touching and educating the heart of our children is pivotal in opening their whole being to the presence of the soul.
Every parent aspires to raise a child with values ingrained in his beings .Well! This work has to and must begin from early childhood years and this forms an integral part of our curriculum. Values cannot and must not be instructed. Our curriculum is built around subtle stories which will have lasting imprints on the innocent hearts and minds of our children.
Our lesson plans orbit around the process of self-reflection and inner exploration providing mind fullness training and social-emotional development every step of the way. We focus on simple human values of caring and bonding, laughing and sharing. Our children will learn the lessons of giving from Mother Nature and Nature shall become their source of inspiration from early years.
The parent-teacher collaboration is at the heart of the Jaipurian philosophy. Through our parent engagement programs, educators mentor parents and guardians till they become an integral part of the educational journey that our toddlers have embarked upon.
Our state of the art learning spaces feed the imagination and curiosity of children and provide a rich learning environment that allows the child to explore freely. The attention to detail in the classroom environment provides a sense of richness to the personalized learning experience for every child.
At Seth M.R. Jaipuria Playgroup the parent will experience new ways of educating the body, emotions and mind of a child through a paradigm shift in the way early education is perceived. Our loving and dedicated teachers shall make a visible difference in your child's life.
In a time where life for us gets busier by the day and pre-school education becomes an indispensable part of your child's education, we should all try to understand the actual importance of early education. In order to do so we encourage you to take a moment and reason what you seek for your child in these early years of his/her life. The significance of these initial decisions for your child is much more than some of us may assume as these pre-school years lay the foundation of a child's future.
Here at Seth M.R.Jaipuria Gomtinagar Playgroup, children are learning to be more independent, to develop social skills, appreciate their surroundings and gain confidence.
It is imperative that children, at such a young age, feel secure and appreciated in their surroundings. This not only boosts their confidence but helps them learn better. At Jaipuria, we ensure learning through experiences and give children the freedom to gain knowledge through their own efforts.
Our purpose is to encourage the children to think critically, make little but significant decisions for themselves rather than force-feeding knowledge. "As in the education of the mind, so in the education of the heart, the best way is to put the child into the right road to his own perfection and encourage him to follow it, watching,
suggesting, helping, but not interfering," as Sri Aurobindo suggests, we believe that every child is naturally curious and enthusiastic, and we are here to channel their energy without interfering with their freedom of mind.
Through play-based learning and a healthy combination of games, group activities, and an advanced curriculum in areas of science, mathematics, arts, as well as music, we focus on nurturing gross and fine motor skills, while also building up on their problem solving and reasoning skills.
Another crucial element in a child's educational foundation is role of the parents. For us, parent involvement is a priority in the overall development of a child. Therefore we offer special activities designed by an expert faculty, as a part of our 'parentteacher collaboration program'. We encourage you to actively be a part of the classroom activities and school programs, and enjoy your child's early experiences.
We understand how challenging it can get for a parent to let their little one out in the world and thus we strive to provide complete support and care to the child. We aim to establish a cordial relationship with parents which is not only limited to the classroom walls. We follow an open door policy and take every possible measure to make sure parents feel secure and satisfied about the child.
This is a significant transition phase for children that requires immense support, attention and care. The idea is to be able to transform a child's world by unleashing the potential within. Together we look forward to celebrate and cherish this brief yet meaningful phase of your child's life.
