A Welcome from the Head of Primary

Early Morning

Welcome to the Primary Years at Garodia International Centre for Learning Mumbai. The Primary department is divided into two sections: the Early Years Foundation Stage (age 3 to 5 years) and the Primary Years (age 5 to 11 years).

At Garodias, we believe that learning should be fun, purposeful and effective. The primary years offer the right stimulation for our young learners from early years to develop their knowledge, skills and understanding required for all their learning in the years ahead. We therefore endeavour to provide a stimulating environment, rich experiences, and optimum encouragement and guidance to make this transition seamless. Our school lays a lot of emphasis on values and life skills education, which are interwoven in the strong curriculum. We believe in educating our children for life, livelihood and citizenship.

We follow the International Primary Curriculum (IPC) for the Primary grades and International Early Years Curriculum (IEYC) for the early years to enhance learning. Both, the IEYC & the IPC, provide opportunities for global learning, nurturing a love of learning – academic, personal and international, which in turn will equip our young learners with the right skills and attitudes to face the world tomorrow.

Art, technology, music, foreign languages, dance, physical activities are an integral part of this rich curriculum lending itself to the development of the whole child. The excellent staff coming from a diverse international background add different and newer perspectives to their learning experiences.

The Cambridge Primary Curriculum for English and Math provides a great framework to develop the Language Arts & Numeracy in our young learners, providing the perfect foundation for the Cambridge Secondary 1 curriculum in the middle years.

The team at GICLM endeavours to make the learning environment stimulating and enriching thus making it very exciting for our young learners to learn and grow. Apart from the classrooms, children at GICLM have access to a range of specialist areas such as the learning centre, drama studio, music room, LEGO lab, art & design studio, state of the art science laboratories, modern spacious canteen and extensive facilities for sports (swimming pool, gym and in-door courts).

We are sure that your child’s learning experiences here will keep the flame of curiosity alive.
