The teaching methodologies of Vedic Lore school has been deeply inspired by Vedic humans and their importance of a broad, balanced training of the hand. Research shows how the human hand has played a pivotal role in the evolution of the human species. Think through the activities of human life in any society until recent ones, the children in Vedic times were taught to plough, sow, weed, cultivate, graft, transplant, harvest, grind etc. They were allowed to work with mud, form the clay, turn the wheel, centre, shape pots and so on. They had to tend and feed cows, goat, chicken and other farm animals. Earlier cultures, although lacking the privileges of the modern world, passed on the essential privilege of a well-trained hand! Through the training of the hand, not only is the whole body engaged but the heart and the mind as well.
What we saw that is common in all Indian and foreign teaching methodologies alike is the fact that the teacher (guru) is the centre for the toddlers and children alike. The children will learn by imitation. They will reflect what the teacher in a certain environment does. They will learn, play, sing and dance as and how the teacher decides to the run the day.
The School’s curriculum has been carefully structured by doing extensive research into the alternative approaches of early learning education. In our research, we have come to understand that no single educational approach will be right for all children. Considering the same, our inspiration behind running Vedic Lore School stems from:
Maria Montessori’s method to education
Steiner Waldorf Kindergarten
Indian Vedic Education
For imbibing such a curriculum in our Vedic Lore School, we have formed the following divisions:
- Morning Meet – Meditation (Circle Time / Story ) area
- Creative Arts and Crafts Environment ( Outdoor & Indoor)
- Yoga and Dance Environment
- Kitchen / No flame cooking environment
- Language / Math Environment
- Geography / Natural Sciences Environment
- AV Room
