The Genius Jr

The Genius Junior is an island of intellectual adventure & creative self discovery. It is a reimagining of The Genius's extremely successful concept for the youngest age groups. We aim to awaken in every child a curiosity and desire to learn by stimulating all their senses. We strive to offer a nurturing, supportive environment for learning, socialisation and exploration, where children feel safe to express emotions, take risks and seek help.

Very often, especially in the Indian educational system, the words "teaching" and "learning" are used as synonyms. As The Genius has shown for the last two and a half decades, this is not necessarily true. At The Genius Jr, our focus is on guided exploration, which leads children towards learning rather than spoon-feeding them information. Through play and exploration, children develop physical coordination, emotional maturity, social skills to interact with other children and self-confidence to try new experiences and explore new environments.

We know that the best way of learning is by doing. In order to learn, children need a stimulating environment which gives them the freedom to explore and experiment to their heart's content.
We strongly believe that the joy of discovery itself motivates learning. We are committed to providing a secure and safe environment which fosters each child's individual and unique development.

WHAT SETS US APART

1. A loving environment

Parents have always told us that one of our greatest qualities is the love we show the children.
Here, at The Genius Jr, love for the children is the guiding force behind all our interactions. The kindness and acceptance for each child is seen in a teacher holding a child, giving hugs daily and always making time for loving interactions through out the day.
When your child grows up they may not remember when they learned their ABC's, but their soul will remember that they felt a love for school that will stay with them forever.

2. A sense of family

At The Genius Jr, we aim to to create a home away from home for your child. When your child comes to preschool they enter the big world for the first time and we want them to feel as comfortable as if they were in their own home. We have been told on countless occasions that what makes our school stand out are the close connections between the teachers and the children.
While there are many good preschools, there are few environments where it feels like family.

3. Small, intimate classes

Our class size is 15 students. Each class has 2 teachers and a helper - an unusually low 7:1 student-teacher ratio. This enables the teachers to give each child personal attention.

4. Thoughtfully designed curriculum

Our curriculum has its basis in the theory of Multiple Intelligences, which honours and promotes the development of all avenues of intelligence in young children - including Verbal/Linguistic, Logical/Mathematical, Musical, Visual/Spatial, Body/Kinaesthetic, Interpersonal and Intrapersonal
One form of intelligence is not better than another; they are equally valuable and viable

Our planned curriculum of experiences and opportunities, fosters each and every intelligence. By broadening our view of intelligence, and valuing and nurturing all abilities, we are able to build on each child's strongest assets, help them become more intelligent by exposing them to a variety of ways of learning, and to better individualise activities for their interests and needs. This makes learning more efficient, successful, and enjoyable.

5. Highly qualified staff

Our teachers have a range of backgrounds, interests and experiences which they bring to the classroom. They are highly educated, with many teachers having masters degrees in education as well as certification as pre-primary school educators.

6. A wide selection of teaching aids & equipment

We use multiple teaching tools and strategies to build positive and supportive relationships with children. Through environments that offer a variety of stimulating, hands-on materials that children individually select, and by creating learning centres that provide natural opportunities to move, be active, and fully engaged in either solo or small group experiences, we better serve and meet the needs of the children.

7. A Carefully curated library

There are many ways to enlarge your child's world. Love of books is the best of all. Our library boasts a hand-picked selection of books that enhance your child's vocabulary & verbal skills, builds imagination and fosters a life-long love of reading.
The more you read, the more things you will know. The more you learn, the more places you will go.    - Dr. Seuss
