Learner Centric Approach
The most important aspects of the learner centric approach are:
The role of teachers is of utmost importance. Apart from ensuring that our teachers are highly qualified and trained, our recruitment process ensures that the selected individuals have qualities which invoke learning and leave a positive influence on students.
Our teaching methodology is based on the concept that children enjoy learning through the play – way method as well as interaction with others. Our program follows an international curriculum that focuses on the sensory modalities which stimulate the emotional, social, cognitive and physical development of the child through visual, kinesthetic and auditory techniques, thus, maximizing the learning potential of our children.
Our curriculum emphasizes active learning and provides a system that leads to the acquisition of both knowledge and skills that enthuse and equip each child to identify, create, initiate and successfully manage learning opportunities.
Research Based Curriculum
The most important aspect of Kangaroo Kids lies in the methodology of enabling children to learn rather than to teach them in the stereotypical manner. Implementation of our curriculum is the most crucial function at Kangaroo Kids Preschool.
At Kangaroo Kids, we have exhaustive guidelines, policies and an internal yearly school improvement program which is carefully designed to maintain high quality standards. The nursery also maintains the government standards set by the Ministry of Administrative Labour and Social Affairs.
In addition to our in-house training, we have professional development sessions that are built into the Academic Calendar and teachers are regularly mentored and monitored to deliver the best.
Every day, various branches of research throw up insights on child and adult learning. The unique thing about our curriculum is that the latest relevant research is synthesized and manifested in the learning process. This makes our curriculum highly engaging and relevant while following the guidelines of the concerned authorities.

Student - Teacher Ratio
Education is not the learning of facts but the training of the mind to think.
Kangaroo Kids has a reasonable teacher – student ratio at all levels. Our students benefit from ample support and guidance, which facilitates their transition from dependence to interdependence, leading to independence. This order of growing independence ultimately helps children to enhance their learning process
