Head of School, Ekya School BTM Layout
"Imagine children who come up with questions like ‘why’ things look a particular way or ‘how’ do things change the way they do. Imagine their teachers who firstly acknowledge students in their natural curious ways and then proceed to ‘find out and understand things’ along with them. Imagine the kind of learning that happens when teachers ask (not tell or explain), ‘How can we find that out’ or ‘what is your first response to this?’ Finally, consider the kind of valuable learning that happens as children go out and research, test their ideas or assumptions and present their understandings to their peers.
This is the kind of teaching-learning environment that is continually nurtured at Ekya. It is a system of education that makes every effort to facilitate students to learn to observe, to think, and connect as they engage with concepts and processes in language, math or arts.
I welcome you to a community of learners, thinkers, doers, and changemakers at Ekya School BTM Layout.""
