Somerset is powered by the unique in-house, research -based
child- friendly and comprehensive school system and curriculum SomerEduMAX,
which integrates conducive Learning Environment, child centered curriculum,
Engaging Teaching Methods and Personalized Assessment to make learning interesting,
engaging and motivating. Howard Gardeners theory of multiple Intelligences (HGMI)
acts as guide and key learning areas used as the foundation for a nursery programme.
The key learning areas are reflected in a daily programme through a variety of materials and
resources in our play areas. The early learning goals defined in the key learning areas help
in laying secure foundations for every student's learning.
Our SomerEduMAX curriculum and school system reduces the need for learning by rote and develops a healthy and positive attitude towards learning. The curriculum also assists the children to learn and inculcate the essential habits of mind, develop a positive attitude and nurture good human values. Thus, it enables them to maximize their potential and evolve as self-confident, self-assured, emotionally balanced and contributing citizens!
Practical in approach, innovative in methods, scholarly in content and global in scope, SomerEduMAX is a powerful system that is balanced and holistic in approach to school education. The essence of SomerEduMAX is best captured by its moto-'Bringing School Education Alive and lively'.
CHILD CENTERED CURRICULUM
At Somerset, the curriculum is developed and designed to enhance the social, emotional, spiritual, physical and cognitive development of each child.
ENGAGING TEACHING METHODS
A lot of importance is given to designing and implementation of teaching methods that captivates the attention of children in learning process. At Somerset, interactive modules such as Group Discussions, Projects Presentation, Quizzes, Games, Thinking Sessions, and Role-plays etc. involve each student into the learning process thereby creating an environment where children come to school not because they have to, but because they want to.
CONDUCIVE LEARNING ENVIRONMENT
For effective education, the environment needs to be conducive to learning, allowing the child the required space and time to interact within the learning and teaching process. Somerset is thus especially designed to create and maintain a stimulating learning environment where children can participate actively and grow and learn in a natural way.
At Somerset, we have Personalized Assessment of each child that helps to maximize his or her potential and develop the right habits, skills, values and attitudes for life beyond the school years. The scope of evaluation extends to almost all the areas of a child's personality and is carried out in relation to cognitive, affective, psycho-motor and social growth.
THEME-BASED LEARNING PROGRAMME
Theme-Based actives are designed at Somerset, keeping in mind the interest, awareness and capability level of children of different ages. These fun activities lend conceptual clarity, provide integration of core subjects and also promote self-learning. It includes interesting extra-curricular programme like superb Saturdays etc.
We believe in 'Values are caught and not taught', therefore through Somerset Sanskars, we focus on instilling the right values and virtues in our children right from the early years. Each month children undertake numerous activities based on the core values of our society such as etiquettes, respect, honesty, co-operation, affection, sharing etc.
TECHNOLOGY AIDED LEARNING
We believe that technology serves two purposes- firstly; it acts as an aid in the teaching- learning process. For that, we use numerous technologies such as Interactive green and white boards and digital content to bring abstract concepts to life. Secondly, as the world has become more technology driven, the work place of tomorrow will be using technologies that have not been invented yet. So, we help our children to be at ease with any technologies they may encounter in the near future.
ENGLISH CONVERSATION DEVELOPEMENT PROGRAMME
At Somerset, we ensure that each child develops the right language and communication skills in all the areas of Listening, Speaking, Reading and Writing. English not only forms the base of understanding others, but also opens the doors to the world at large bearing this in mind; we build each child's language proficiency through Special Conversation modules and programmes which are run in English Language Lab.
PERSONALITY ENHANCEMENT PROGRAMME
At Somerset, we believe that the simultaneous development of MIND, BODY and SOUL is imperative in dealing with life challenges. Therefore, we focus on developing the overall personality of our children through interesting sessions on developing good attitude, positive approach, self-confidence, proper body language, personal etiquettes etc to face the competitive world in an effective way.
HEALTH AND WELLNESS MORNING PROGRAMME
An old maxim 'A healthy mind dwells in a healthy body' is well taken into consideration at Somerset. This unique Health and Wellness Morning Programme includes a session of 15 minutes daily where in healthy habits, value of hygiene, importance of physical exercises and games, healthy diet are conducted for physical, social, emotional and mental development of a child.
THINKING SKILLS DEVELOPMENT MODULE
At Somerset, we develop the abilities of the children to judge, analyze, and think critically to reflect a much deeper understanding of the world around them and contribute creatively. We enable our children creatively explore, apply and extend options when facing problems.
