Le Grand International School succinctly aims at providing child-centered approach towards education. At LGIS, we believe that learning starts from the child inside-out rather than the curriculum outside-in. And so the starting point is looking at the child and what he needs and then building the curriculum outward from there. In other words, the curriculum spells out not only what teachers are to teach and students are to learn, but also What, When and How this has to take place.
At Le Grand International School, Dehradun both curricular and co-curricular activities are given equal importance thus creating awareness in students and providing them with hands-on learning experiences that they can apply to real-life situations. The LGIS Shikshaks act as facilitators for the students and guide them in their learning process through activities, audio-visual stimuli, projects and presentations. With the help of parents, the facilitators collaborate on the development of a curriculum that will instill character and positive behaviour in students right from the beginning of the school.
Kindergarten is the first structured learning experience for the student with groups of children under the guidance of LGIS Shikshaks.
