Nurtures Belief NIS Is A School With Difference.

Nurture Pedagogy

  • NIS is a different school. The main difference is its focus on the individual child. All Nurture methods, materials and assessment, teaching processes and methods are scientifically designed for the individual child to feel empowered and supported at his / her level. All children are capable of mastery but children at a young age grow at different pace and should never be compared.

Never compare children

  • Young children, and in fact no children or even adults, must ever be compared. Comparison with others lowers a child’s self-esteem or feeds her ego. Both are undesirable. Nurture schools are extremely clear on this objective. We urge our parents also to understand this important principle as this will help their children grow up to be stronger, more confident individuals.

Personalised education

  •  Treating every child as special, the GCPL academics are based on the principle of COMPETE WITH YOURSELF. This creates an intrinsic motivation in every child to succeed.
  •  Children are further empowered with self-knowledge, self-reflection and self-analysis made possible by on-going personal diagnostic reports and daily reflection. Children learn important life skills and become more effective partners in their learning process.
  •  Focus is on personalised learning. This ensures that every child maximizes his potential and moves efficiently towards each goal with self-confidence.

Speaking positive languages

  • Don’t praise. Rephrase the praise. Use the language of encouragement instead. Praise goes to the head. Encouragement is more genuine and goes to the heart. When a child does well, praise says, “You are the greatest!” What when the child does not do well in something? Will you withdraw your original statement? Praise is overall. Encouragement is specific. Every child can aspire to be encouraged while praise can be limited to the ‘best’. For example, “I like the way you shared your crayons with that child.” With such a language of encouragement, every child can feel encouraged and the value of sharing. Every child feels, “I can do it too.”

Preserve curiosity, nurture creativity

  • Children are naturally curious and creative. When we draw a leaf and show children how to draw it, they learn to sit and wait and watch. We kill their natural creativity. Instead, we need to carefully plan children’s learning experience such that they become more curious and creative and they take initiative in exploring the natural environment around them. How about taking them to a garden to pick fallen leaves, come and paint them in their personal favourite colours, making impressions with these in their drawing sheets. Watch the wonder and the joy! When you next ask to draw them, you will find more variety, more detail and more understanding. Which is better? One experience is aimed in pushing through a syllabus, the other focuses on developing life-skills.

Develop a positive self-concept

  • Children must never be compared to each other. Young children in particular grow in bursts and spurts and develop differently. Every child must be treated as an individual.

Passionate leadership

  • Faculty: Every teacher at Nurture undergoes a training which helps them mould their teaching methodology to suit individual child. Aptly maintaining a student-teacher ratio of 8:1, the faculties at NIS Bangalore are Montessori trained by qualification and jeweled with gems such as caring, loving, patience, understanding, comforting besides a deep passion to nurture.
