Educational Method

At BPIS, we nurture a child’s growth and learning from the early years to the threshold of entering the world of professional courses. We believe school is a place of learning, growing and creating memories. We provide education that encourages critical and creative thinking. We prepare your child to face life itself. We follow the ICSE Curriculum. Here is an overview of the programs offered at BPIS.

BPIS focuses on the play way method and learning through doing, reasoning and experiencing. Pre- reading and pre- writing activities are taken up at the Nursery level, followed by activities for development of language and mathematical skills at Junior K.G and Senior K.G. levels. Our entire program seeks to support the young child (and their family) in their journey of becoming lifelong learners. Other enrichment activities include music, yoga or dance, each taught by teachers who are specifically trained in these disciplines. Our Pre-primary children also enjoy the resources of an entire school community including a spacious, beautiful library, complete with a broad selection of books for the young reader. Students also enjoy exploring music and performing arts.
