• PHILOSOPHY

 
 
At TFA our aim is to create a stimulating environment that encourages continuous & modular learning, reflection and self assessment; one that engages children in a network of emotionally safe relationships and experiences. 

Our aim is to devise and implement a programme that is based on the latest scientific theories of learning & child development, within the context of a deep Indian ethos.
Our aim is to ignite individual creativity and problem solving skills through the implementation of a flexible, non-formal programme that allows for collaborative work, experiential learning and creative expressions.

Our aim is to promote the art of story-telling in both traditional and modern formats to enhance expression through varied forms & languages and with it learn about vocabulary, history, customs, festivals, morality and values.
Our aim is to provide opportunities & experiences for learning basic life skills that will help children to be independent, self sufficient and socially well-adjusted.
We believe that Parents are Partners in Education and with their support one can unleash a child’s real potential.

Our aim is to provide holistic education that allows children to develop and grow – physically, mentally, emotionally & spiritually.
