Junior Kindergarten
( 4 Years – 5 Years)

We all act on situations based on our previous experience, which is pre-programmed in our minds. Likewise, our children also save a few programmes in their minds.


Our Junior Kindergarten is designed to help children build on their prior knowledge and experiences to form the concepts and acquire foundational skills. Our programme is ‘activity based’ with themes comprising both individual and group activities.


9i Approach enables development of cognitive skills, logical reasoning through sorting, grouping, temporal concepts, and number concepts with mathematical operations. Our learning centres provide both free and guided play, thus enhancing the child’s imagination and creativity.

Our Curriculum
9i Approach

Experiences in the foundational years create the blueprint of a child’s life. A child’s mind  is absorbent and is greatly influenced by the environment he/she is in. To augment their potential and build 21st-century skills in children, the 9i Approach Curriculum at Peepal Tree is diligently crafted by adapting to the latest pedagogies and research.

Our teaching methodologies are inspired by Dr. Howard Gardner’s theory of ‘Multiple Intelligences’, Friedrich Frobel, and Maria Montessori. Our curriculum is play based and provides for the holistic development of children by blending activities with fun and thereby creating lifelong learners.  It is aligned with the recommendations of National Educational Policy 2020 and is multifaceted, interdisciplinary, mindful, and experiential-based. The success of the programme is reflected in the periodical assessments by the facilitators. The nine intelligences in the  9i Approach are:


Phonics as a teaching-learning tool lays foundation for strong linguistic skills. It helps children to associate sounds with letters, letter recognition, reading, and comprehension. An extensive language programme facilitates the translation of thoughts into expressions. It aims to attain effective listening, speaking, and writing skills. Know more

Logic and Math

A detailed set of activities build up the logical and mathematical skills in children. Creating opportunities to explore, twist, turn, reason, and repeat the pre-math and number concepts help a great deal to be able to perform mathematical operations with ease at later stages. Know more

Interpersonal skills

The skill of being empathetic towards others, teamwork, leadership, and developing positive relationships are developed in children through the social development activities. Know more

Intrapersonal skills

Care for self is emphasized through the self-care activities to help a child become confident, independent, and resilient. Know more


Music is the first intelligence to develop in a child. Rhymes and music activities help children to appreciate rhythm, remain calm, and learn new concepts. Know more

Bodily- Kinesthetic

A developing mind requires movement. Hence, our curriculum integrates learning with bodily-kinesthetic activities for the fine and gross motor development, cross-lateral development (to activate both hemispheres of the brain in a balanced way), yoga, and fun sports. These not only help a growing child to channelize their energies and be fit but also to build long term memory and in overall cognitive development. Know more


Nature is the best teacher. Growing up with nature, experimenting with things around, and understanding the world helps a child be an explorer, researcher, inventor, and innovator. Know more

Visual-Spatial Skills

Activities on visual-spatial skills help a child to process what they see to understand the spatial relationships between objects and also develop creativity and visualization. Know more

Life Skills

Our life skills programme, GROW, is specially designed to inculcate the values, ethics and for the overall personality development of children. Know more

Experts say 85% of brain development takes place before the age of six. This development demands experience. In the present era of nuclear families and both parents working, it is difficult for a child to gather meaningful learning at home alone. National Education Policy 2020 has defined schooling age as three years for nursery.  We recommend beginning the play/toddler group by 2 years to allow the child to pick up experiences.

It is recommended that parents encourage the development of speaking skills, confidence, independence in doing small tasks rather than teaching academics. Once the child joins us, we shall take care of teaching letters and numerals in a scientific and playful way.

Children learn new things with practice. Though the biological age to gain control over bowel movement is 18 months, it doesn’t come naturally. For children who are not potty trained before they join the school, we follow the below steps:

  • We tell the parents to stop sending their children in diapers after they have settled at school.
  • Maintain a schedule to take them to washroom. With the routine of regular visits, children learn to say when they have the urge.

We have child-friendly potty seats installed in every washroom, which is washed after every usage.

Research says 15% of the toddlers are late talkers. If your child is on par with the physical and mental developmental milestones and not yet talking, that means they need a stimulating environment to open up. In such a case you should start schooling, because, at school, the child would get ample opportunities to develop speaking skills through interaction with peers and adults and language related activities.
