Our Teaching Methology
" How is my shadow formed ?   "
" Where does sun go after night ?   "
" Do ants sleep ?   "
" Where does Chota Bheem stays ?   "
Do they look familiar questions asked by your child?

We know that while growing up, children are continuously asking questions in an attempt to make sense of the world. We all want to understand the world around us and how it works. We do this by asking questions. This is our natural urge to enquire and during this process we are continuously thinking in order to make some meaning. Every child brings with them deep curiosity and potential and this innate curiosity drives their interest to understand the world and their place within it.

We at Shikshana aim to maintain & kindle this curiosity in students. We aid them in engaging & discovering their answers

How it works ?
We believe learning is a process where students have to be involved to understand the things at its best. We do this by following Enquiry-based learning

What is Enquiry- based learning (EBL)?
EBL is more dynamic and actively involves students in their own learning. This type of learning is based on Constructivist theory, that people constructs their own understanding & knowledge of the world through experiencing things and then reflecting on their own experiences

Teacher's role

Teacher acts as a facilitator of the students' learning, rather than a provider of information. They have excellent understanding of the content. Teachers also carefully plan their learning units based on each child.  They use different methods of enquiry to aid students based on their age & understanding. These methods could be:

1) Structured: Fully teacher guided
​2Guided: Students take responsibility and are partially guided by teachers
3) Open approach: Where students take a lead
Meet The Team
Mrs. Radha P.
 - Founder & Teacher

"Hi, thanks for stopping by. I’m Radha, having a teaching experience of 20+ years with kids. I have been running this small world since 2005.

The inception of idea for Shikshana came, when my kids were growing up. My husband and I started talking about how we wanted to raise our children. We talked a lot about our family values and their education. We spend lot of our time reading, interacting and experimenting different methods to raise our kids in a best environment. With this process of raising kids we thought of taking this experience forward to our society and that's how Shikshana was started. 

I and my team are passionate about raising kids holistically. We strive to give our students best learning & memories of their life. We also believe the only thing that's constant is 'Change'. We constantly work to incorporate world's best method to educate our children.

Every child is very special to usCome & let us prepare our kids for life and school together"
