“Sloka - where the colours of the mind take wing.”

CURRICULUM

Where education is an art

The academic environment in which a student of Sloka grows is an engrossing, multidisciplinary one that engages the thinking, feeling, and willing faculties within each child. Their curiosity is allowed to unfold naturally during the lessons, which are a healthy mix of indoor and outdoor learning experiences. These often follow the seasons of nature and the life rhythms.

Lesson delivery also involves art, as painting, music, poetry, drama, and storytelling become learning aids. When thus integrated into the way children are introduced to concepts, art engages the child’s imagination, alongside their intellect. The process sparks a real interest and a personal grasp of the subjects they are learning about. The inherent genius of each child can find its way into the world, thanks to such paths of exploration.

“The heart of the Waldorf method is that education is an art—it must speak to the child’s experience. To educate the whole child, his heart and his will must be reached, as well as the mind.”

— Rudolf Steiner

CURRICULUM

Pioneers in Waldorf education

The Waldorf curriculum was successfully Indianised by Sloka’s pioneering team. It engages students cognitively and creatively, instilling a deep awareness, reverence, and hands-on learning appropriate to the age and consciousness level they are in.

The result is that, by the time they leave school, students come into their own as lifelong learners and fearless explorers, ready for wider horizons.

CURRICULUM

Age-appropriate schooling
Mixed-age Kindergarten

The earliest years of childhood form impressions that children carry with them through their lifetime. It is usually their first taste of the world beyond home, and at Sloka, the teachers are eager to welcome them into a secure atmosphere full of warmth.

Lower School

Children master the fundamental skills for learning during their lower school years. The curriculum flows developmentally, in harmony with the child’s growth. In the early years, the teacher directs the learning through fairy tales, fables, myths and legends, building the foundations of language and expression.

Middle School

In their first years of adolescence, children are led by a greater interest in the world around them, and are ready for greater academic challenges and social experiences. Formal Sciences are introduced in middle school — often by Specialist Teachers in addition to the Class Teacher who has been with the students since Grade 1.

High School

By the end of middle school, students have not only grown in their knowledge and skills, but have also gained an understanding of how things learned in the classroom are connected to each other, to the world, and to their own lives.

At this point, students of Sloka transition into a new syllabus as the CBSE curriculum is introduced. However, we have worked to ensure that Waldorf principles continue to sustain and enrich their journey through the new curriculum.
