Once a child is born, the mother is the best teacher as well as a guide. She is the first influence, providing her child with love and security. If we look back to what we learned from our mothers, there are so many things that it may be impossible to pen down all of them. TWGS has a crystal-clear concept for MOTHER TEACHER who helps students to acquire knowledge, competence or virtue. Understanding the child and developing a support between the learner and the teacher. Helps in better understanding of various development stages of the child especially cognitive and emotional.

Play based learning is a type of early childhood education where in students learn all the new concepts through the open-ended play. The entire curriculum is divided across various themes and the classrooms as well as activities are designed based on the ongoing theme as it is believed that the visual and play way is the best method of stimulating the child’s mind.

Festival celebrations at preschool help the children to understand the importance of bonding together, sharing joys and celebrating happiness with togetherness. It also takes into account celebrations of days in formal schools like Sports Day, Annual Day, Mela festivals etc. Acknowledging or celebrating holidays in early childhood programs can bring pleasure to many families, staff, and children and can be useful in building connections between school and families. Learning about other holidays helps children expand their cultural world. It's important children understand and express their own family traditions and beliefs, but the holiday season can be a great time to encourage exploration of other cultural traditions and beliefs. Apart from classroom activities.
We also celebrate festivals and events in order to familiarize the child with our country's culture and traditions. Such celebrations will bring children closer to our traditions and cultural beliefs. A close bond is built between children as they understand each other's customs. Celebration provides a warm and nurturing environment, which supports the developing child in reaching his or her full potential. The program encourages a family-centered partnership facilitating a comfortable transition from home to school and strengthening the positive interactions between parents and child.
Students learn more effectively by group activities. ACTIVITY time which hinges on the idea of small group activities and peer discussion and prepares the children for the upcoming /on going topic in every lesson plan transforms the children into more dynamic and effective learners. During the ACTIVITY time the educator guides students as they apply concepts, play game, watch videos, listen stories and then interact with their fellow mates and engage effectively in the subject matter. The curriculum focuses on making the children an effective inquirer and let them explore and discover not only the topic but also themselves and make them competent and establish attitude among themselves which stays them for life. The student’s foundation is laid with these activities which help them become confident and efficient learners in later years
Assessment is an on while doing specific activities. The aim is to enable each child to reach his/her full potential. This can sometimes highlight some difficulties that the child may be experiencing within the classroom.
Assessment in early childhood education is a comprehensive framework that helps in evaluating a student's present level of knowledge and skills. This framework benefits the student as the teacher can design a curriculum suited to a learner's needs and thereafter derive a suitable learning progression.
Assessment plays an important role in the process of learning and motivation. Well-designed assessment methods provide valuable information about student learning. They tell us what students learnt, how well they learnt it, and where they struggled.
The purpose of assessment in primary schools is to provide information on the performance of a child at a point in time (e.g testing) or over the school year (report card template). The results are used to plan on going learning and whole school.
Sports experiences help building positive self- esteem in children. In addition, participating in sports can be a helpful way of reducing stress and increasing feelings of physical and mental well-being, as well as fighting against juvenile delinquency, conflict and aggressive outbursts.
Participation in sports allows kids to make lasting friendships, develop communication skills, feel a sense of community and learn to respect their teammates and coaches. Even athletes in individual sports learn to work as a team with their coach and make lasting friendships with others in their sport. Sport teaches us development. It helps us learn things such as resilience, leadership, accountability, respect and patience. Lessons that sports teach us can help us develop as players and all round good people too.

STEAM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and maths. One may think that some of these subjects seem lofty for pre-schoolers to grasp, but at TWGS we believe that teaching some of the concepts through play enhances their critical thinking, which is the basic skill for maths and science but are also valuable for learning many subjects. Asking WHYs spark investigation and critical thinking. Talking about how seasons change while walking outdoors or different colours that make picture books nurtures their brain and prepare them for real life.
