This initiative emphasises on grooming children from grade I-V for their development as independent learners. The focus is on building early language, literacy and numeracy skills. The aim, as the children move to higher levels, is to equip them to perform at comparable levels when they reach class V. Children are encouraged to play with the alphabets, understand and coin words that they are familiar with. The teaching practices follow the continuum of developing the related listening, speaking, reading and writing skills.
