The Pre -KG & Kindergarten at GMS follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework.This is a three year journey of discovery and exploration spread overPre-KG, KG 1 and KG 2. This is an exciting time for a child to explore, learn, interact with other children and have fun while at the same time gain confidence, grow in independence, develop cognitive, affective and motor capabilities. We provide concrete, multi-sensorial and relevant experiences. This being the Foundation stage, the curriculum is theme based, is designed and mapped with the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework.(EYFS) focusing on the seven areas of development of Early years.

The System of Evaluation
Kindergarten is an exciting time for a child to explore, learn, interact with other children and have fun while at the same time gain confidence and grow independently. There are no formal assessments in the Kindergarten. As children engage themselves in their day-to-day activities, they are assessed formatively in Language, Numeracy, Physical-Gross and Motor, Personal, Social, Emotional and Creative domains. A record of individual student attainment and progress is maintained for each thematic-unit through an on-going system of spaced oral, written activities and video recordings. Parents are regularly appraised of the same. Student progress is tracked across each unit.
