About AGS School

AGS School, instituted in the year 2014, was established primarily as a preschool to provide a nurturing learning environment to children aged five and under. A spacious campus in Ambal Nagar, Pallikaranai with ample outdoor space was where we began our journey. Our vision was a simple one, keeping in mind a young child’s emotional needs: to establish a seamless transition between home and school wherein the latter is thought of as a mere extension of the loving environment a child is used to – and to facilitate learning in the process. Children are natural learners, after all, and only require a setting that is stimulating enough to aid development.

As we enter our fourth year, AGS Nursery & Primary School, offers Play Group and Kinder Garten (Lower & Upper) programmes, supports classes I to III .

We hope to grow into a full-fledged school in the upcoming years, offering classes till XII. Our focus then, would beto further the rich learning environment on offer, and to strive not just towards academic excellence, but also to ensure overall, holistic development of ourchildren.

Pedagogy – What We Do

We aim to provide a setting that would foster knowledge in an experiential way by organizing field trips, and encouraging kinesthetic learning. Classrooms are just that; a place to congregate and exchange ideas as our educators profile, observe, enable and try to satisfy the growing developmental needs of each child by assigning specific tasks tailored to suit individual minds.

Sport is an integral part of our learning process, so are other activities that are broadly categorized under ‘extra-curricular’ in other institutions. At AGS though, art and craft, music, dance and sport are intrinsically woven into the curriculum, with skilled instructors at hand to cheer the children on.

Our Brand Of Education

At AGS, we believe in making education accessible to all, and providing an inclusive atmosphere for children from across all social backgrounds. In our effort to further the cause, we offer a truly low, flexible fee-structure tailored to the capacity of each parent. At the start of every academic year, we offer a flat 50 percent discount on fees for the first 20 applicants on a first-come-first-serve basis.

Infrastructure

Our classrooms don’t just serve as a hub of learning, but also as a space to encourage free thought where every child is allowed to express their will; a site that brings the best out of every student, devoid of any inhibitions. To this end, the classroom setting is as intimate and homely as can be: a clean, comfortable ambiance with ample natural lighting, and age-appropriate learning tools and charts to stimulate young minds.

Our outdoor play area has been intuitively designed, keeping in mind the vast stores of physical energy a child has. Safe, sturdy play equipment have been installed, with equal attention to free space. There’s also a stretch of sand for those wanting to get their hands dirty, and also in the process, develop fine motor skills. In young children, playing in the sand pit is known to enhance textural senses – and encourage independent, creative thought.

Other facilities include an audio-visual room, a mini library to cultivate reading, and individual spaces for yoga, art and craft, and puppetry.

The school plans to extend its campus to accommodate classes till XII within a span of three years.

Educators

Our teachers – highly skilled in areas of education for young children – actively engage and aid their charges wherever necessary. They are imparted Montessori training by the school, and also undergo an induction programme to sensitise them to the emotional, physical and cognitive needs of young learners.

Daycare

Our daycare facilities are topnotch – open to both children studying at AGS and also to those coming in from other schools. Children have access to our indoor premises as well as the outdoor play area, and their day is alternatively free and structured to include meal and nap times, and other activities that they choose to engage themselves in. Daycare begins at 8 am and ends at 8 pm with round- the-clock, well-trained caregivers attuned to the needs of each child.

Staff: Ms. Vasantha, our admin in charge for the past four years, oversees the daycare facility. A grandmother herself, she has a way with young children, and can often be seen in animated conversation with one or many of them. Our other caregivers – Ms. Gayathri and Ms. Vasantha – have their own unique approach towards handling kids. We take in children from the age of 7 months.

Other Academic / Non- Academic Courses On Offer: AGS conducts lessons in Karate, classical music and dance, Hindi, spoken English, and facilitates tuitions in Mathematics for classes 10 – 12. Tennis Coaching is also on offer by our sister academy.
