DPS Panvel follows holistic pattern of education which combines curricular and co-curricular activities so that the growth encompasses mental, physical and social aspects of its students. We believe in imparting quality education that goes beyond the text books focusing on 21st century skills like critical thinking, collaboration, communication, creativity, problem solving, decision making and artificial intelligence with experiential learning. The focus is on integrated approach with project based learning and emphasis is on sound acquisition of language, numeracy and life skills.
School believes in promoting sports skills and hobbies for which special time slots are allotted from class I onwards.
Activities appeal to the child's innate tendencies. At the pre primary level we provide theme-based activities that is learning related. Language is taught through phonetic sounds. Number work is taught through concrete examples and is led to conclude step by step in a logical way. EVS is taught through play involving investigation, exploration and discovery.
To stimulate learning we have a special play area, which is a well-equipped room where students are led to discover the world around them based on the themes through fantasy or imaginative play. Multimedia and audio visual aids further facilitate their learning and the fivefold development i.e. Physical development, Social development, Emotional development, Mental development and Spiritual development.
Pre-primary - Nursery, Junior KG and Senior KG
The classrooms are bright and cheerful, catching the brightest rays of the sun. The school is surrounded with natural beauty with hills and a waterfall in the backdrop. The teachers are loving and caring and implement a happy blend of Montessori and traditional teaching approaches.
