Springdays follows the globally accepted and most sought after CBSE curriculum. The CBSE board provides a well-standardized syllabus and framework for the children to thrive and flourish in.
At primary schooling level, our curriculum provides an investigative and inquiry-based learning programme and sustains the child’s interest in learning. When subjects like mathematics, social studies and sciences are taught using this methodology, it gives the child a solid foundation to build on. Children become active learners with our activity-based pedagogy. Equal importance is given to Value Education and Life Skills program and helps children grow up as conscious citizens of the country and the world. The books and curriculum followed are as per CBSE\NCERT norms. No homework is given for children up to 3rd grade.
NO HOMEWORK POLICY
As per the CBSE board policy it is decided to follow NO HOMEWORK POLICY for the classes LKG, UKG, Ist Std & IInd Std. Our school and our teachers follow this rule and the child’s learning process is completed during the school hours.
As part of the secondary curriculum, we strike the right balance between curricular and co-curricular activities. Secondary schooling is an important stage in a child’s development when the child’s seamless energy must be channelled into productive areas of development. We focus a lot on equipping children for Adolescence and teach them the necessary life skills through all our curricular programs. Children are encouraged to think critically and creatively through our activity-based pedagogy. Apart from the co-curricular activities covered as part of the Primary Curriculum, children are exposed to more independent co-curricular activities as given below. The books and curriculum followed are as per CBSE\NCERT norms.
We have designed our co-curricular activities to imbibe the following skills in children- how to live and work with others harmoniously, how to communicate with care and empathy, how to preserve the environment, how to grow and cook food, how to build communities, how to live a physically fit life, understanding machines, how to problem solve technical and personal problems, how to think innovatively and critically.
Our co-curricular programs are integrated with the curriculum to make the learning of such skills seamless for children.
At Springdays, we believe that we are not just responsible for the cognitive development of the child. As a school, we strive to bring up every child with a healthy self-esteem, self-awareness, emotional intelligence, empathy and with leadership skills. We have a one-of-a kind curriculum specially designed for this purpose which we impart to our children from PreKG up to 9th standard.
Right from a very young age we teach our children the leadership skills such as Emotional Intelligence, Goal-Setting, Assertiveness, Goal-Setting, Handling Bullying, Negotiation and Win-win, Dealing with Adolescence, Anger Management and Exam Stress, etc.
This is done in an experiential manner following the inquiry-based learning methodology with games, movie screenings, role plays, art, music and storytelling etc.

As a supporting effort to the school environment, school nutrition plays a substantial role in bettering the health of students. The School Nutrition Squad comprises of group of students and a school teacher who will ensure that the school students receive foods that are based on nutritional standards, educate the school children on good food habits and importance of healthy food, ensure that hygiene is maintained in the school kitchen and that there is minimum or zero food waste in the school canteen. This gels well with the school wellness strategy and ensures that it is important to student growth and development. It is believed that healthy food and improved nutrition improves learning ability, leading to better academic performance.
We also involve our children in gardening activities around the campus and in our roof garden. It gives them a first-hand experience on how to grow food and the effort that goes into it.
