Head Teacher’s Welcome

Dear Parents,

Welcome to Early Years @Healthy Planet, first opened in 2008. Learning and the development of your children are at the heart of everything that we do. We look forward to working together with you in partnership – the School, the parents, your children and all stakeholders - to achieve excellence with a commitment to lifelong learning, ‘preparing students to embrace the opportunities and challenges they may encounter tomorrow ’.

Your children will begin a journey of learning and discovery from the age of two in 'a safe, trusting and caring environment,' where each child is treated as a unique individual with potential for many things.

We believe that the time your children spend at Early Years @ Healthy Planet will have a deep impact on their overall development in the years to come. Our centre is staffed with Early Childhood development specialists, fully trained in appropriate teaching methodology and learning strategies that are practised worldwide.

Early Years @ Healthy Planet has successfully gained accreditation with the Early Childhood Association (ECA) India by passing the quality audit with flying colours in 2018. Our Early Years programme was described as a 'temple of learning' with 'a genuine commitment to children and education visible in the school.'

Come and visit us to savour the special learning environment and enjoy a first-hand experience at Early Years @ Healthy Planet. We look forward to welcoming you and your children.

 

Regards
Susan Holmes

History

Nehru World School (NWS) was first established in 1978. It is an English medium co-educational school affiliated to the Central Board of Secondary Education (C.B.S.E.) in Ghaziabad, a satellite city of Delhi.

Initially catering for primary and secondary students, an Early Years Centre was opened in 2007, known as Healthy Planet. The philosophy of early childhood education that provided the foundation of the early childhood learning at Healthy Planet was an amalgamation of the best practices in the widely respected philosophies of Maria Montessori, Howard Gardener, John Dewey and the Reggio Emilia approach. Early Years @ Healthy Planet now follows the International Early Years Curriculum (IEYC). It is an innovative research-based programme, recognising global best practice and the developmental needs of 2 to 5-year olds. It supports key areas of learning through holistic enquiry and play-based approaches encompassing all curriculum areas including personal, social and emotional development.

In 2017, the Cambridge International Primary Curriculum was introduced as a learning pathway for students progressing from the Early Years Wing. Currently offered to primary students from Grade 1 to Grade 6, this pathway will grow organically year on year.

Home-School Engagement

Home Learning is integral to Early Years @ Healthy Planet and parents are encouraged to interact and regularly talk with their children about their learning. We also encourage you to be very close observers of your children's learning at home and in the community and share with us those special 'wow' moments that demonstrate your children's increasing knowledge, skills and increasing understanding. You may like to contribute evidence to that learning journal through photographs, samples of learning, anecdotal records and observations.
Parent-Teacher Meetings take place regularly throughout the year. These give you the opportunity to interact with your child's teacher and discuss their progress. Parents are also invited to the Exit Point of each IEYC unit. These may take place in school and provide another opportunity to share your child's learning and be amazed by their creativity and curiosity. On occasions, Exit points may be in the form of a visit, where parents are also warmly welcomed.

Home Letters are shared with parents at the beginning of each new IEYC Unit Learning. These include a reference to all the learning that will take place in literacy and numeracy as well as opportunities for home learning.
The Almanac is a very important communication tool between the home and school. The Almanac is checked on a daily basis and updated as necessary. Activities and learning completed throughout the week are shared with you in the Almanac at the end of each week.

The ERP system provides daily information on the learning completed.

Pedagogy Sessions for parents take place throughout the year to assist parents in gaining a better understanding of what and how the children are learning so that parents can provide the best possible support for them at home.
