WHY INCLUSIVE SCHOOL?
Crayons Montessori, established in 1995 aims to provide children with a congenial environment and opportunities to learn and express their views. At Crayons, we are guided by the highly regarded and proven methods of Maria Montessori, an Italian physician and educator best known for the philosophy of education that bears her name. Our activities are designed to bring out the best in our children. Our highly qualified, Montessori-trained teachers use novel ways to encourage the tiny tots to learn through dance, actions, story-telling, singing, enacting stories using puppets etc. We believe that individual attention is essential to develop their personality.
We believe that by providing a joyful learning experience in their formative years, we can help children establish a positive attitude towards life-long learning.
Crayons is extremely proud to present an education system with inclusion, the one and only present in Delhi at a play school level. It not only encourages learning among diverse needs children but also aims to sensitize regular children.
An inclusive school incorporates a structure where children with special needs receive education along with other children. The school structures its policies, educational plans and practices that responds to individual differences and ability, thus benefitting all children. It is the practice of educating all children in the same classroom, including children with physical, mental, and developmental needs. In a fully inclusive school, all of the children follow the same schedules; everyone is involved in the same extracurricular activities, and assemblies.
It is important because it aims at promoting an inclusive non-discriminatory society where everybody is sensitive to the needs of others. Initially, it not only sensitizes and changes the attitude of the teachers and parents, but also the young minds that start their early education based on the Montessori curriculum.
