Teaching Methodology - New pathways to learning
" Children are not things to be moulded, but are people to be unfolded."
Vasant International Public School is one of the premier institutions of Multai which provides Montessori based education to the young students stepping into the portals of education. Developed by Dr. Maria Montessori, the Montessori Method is based on an understanding of a child's tendencies and addresses a child’s need. The aim is to maximize a child’s independent learning and exploration.
A major difference between Montessori education and other systems of education is that the Montessori elementary environment balances the child's developing imagination and powers of abstraction with down-to-earth, concrete, hands-on materials.

At VIPS Montessori materials provide diverse and creative pathways to learning .While some of the material equips the children for their day to day activities, the use of others enables the children to use their senses for their development. Arithmetic and language learning becomes easy and permanent through the specially designed materials with which children work every day.
Mathematics, for instance, is presented through three-dimensional materials, each providing a concrete way to experience an abstract concept. Likewise, the grammar materials use symbols and visual patterns to help the child discover parts of speech and analyze the structure, style, and logic of sentences.
Co-Curricular Activities - Enriching experiences
Learning is experience, everything else is just information. Pre Primary children are given the opportunity to hone their skill in various fields through aesthetics, cultural events play-way activities in the "kids" room and adventure zone. We lay emphasis on enhancing the social, intellectual moral and cognitive skills. Given the freedom and support to question, to probe deeply, and to make connections, Montessori students become confident, enthusiastic, self-directed learners. They are able to think critically, work collaboratively, and act boldly—a skill set for the 21st century.
VIPS believes in translating the vision and dreams of a student into reality. The world of the child is full of movement, and we prepare the environment with beautiful materials and ample opportunity to connect with nature. This approach facilitates growth and fosters learning while keeping up with the eager, enthusiastic and energetic young children.

Interdisciplinary and experiential learning forms the basis of classes extending from I to V which is supported by a caring, friendly and well-structured learning environment.
It uses a blend of technique and technology which aims in developing a child’s sense of discovery and observation. Special attention is paid towards accentuating linguistic skills, scientific and mathematical concepts. The children are motivated to develop a love for learning.
