    Experiential learning or learning by doing plays an important role in a child’s early development. As much as learning is about academic pursuits, it is also about acquiring skills to take one ahead in life. This is important in the early stages of learning just when the child is beginning to learn and explore things around.

     

    Experiential learning brings together a learning process where children are actively engaged in learning the concepts. It involves observation, creativity and active interactions and allows children to see the purpose and enjoy the learning experience.

     

    Located at Hiranandani Fortune City, Panvel, Hiranandani Trust School (HTS), places a special emphasis on experiential learning along with play way method of teaching. It encompasses these principles:


      • Focusing on the application of concepts rather than theory
      • Encouraging a real-world perspective
      • Stimulating and nurturing cognitive and professional development
      • Forming exploratory, expressive and communicative behaviour
      • Introducing children to areas outside their comfort zone
    •  

      Although, incorporating all these principles can sometimes get tricky, creating interest and building curiosity among children is what drives teaching at HTS.  

    • Few of the reasons why HTS places a special emphasis on experiential learning are:

      • Experiential learning enables children to work through problems that may arise in real-life situations. So, it involves learning concepts by working out how many toys you have, how many biscuits did the dog eat and so on.
      • It involves experiencing failure and overcoming it by finding a way to do it by themselves, as children have learned the concepts well.
      • Experiential learning empowers children to not focus on a set formula to solve the problem or arrive at an answer. Rather, it allows them to explore and be creative.
    • Along with experiential learning, teaching at HTS also involves play way method of teaching. It ensures that learning is fun and not a forceful activity. It advocates educating children through activities in which children can put their heart and soul and work in an atmosphere of freedom and spontaneity.

    • At present, HTS offers learning for students of Playgroup, Nursery, Jr. Kg., Sr. Kg. and Std. 1. So, when you see a child feeding a stuffed toy or sorting pebbles or creating a huge castle made of blocks, be assured that he/she is not just playing but learning and developing as well.
