The CHIREC Advantage for Lifelong Learning

Did you know that a child’s first years in school have a disproportionately high impact on the rest of their school and university education?

Since 1989, CHIREC’s tried, trusted and innovative approach to a child’s first footsteps into formal schooling has been reassuring parents that their children are in good, caring hands and set fair for future success. At CHIREC, children benefit from a head start in their schooling and the formation of a solid foundation for their lifelong learning.

CHIREC’s Preschool programme helps children to develop the social and emotional competences to settle well into the first stages of their long voyage of discovery from Nursery to University. Our skilled and experienced teachers nurture our little new learners’ curiosity and cultivate essential skills for inquiry and exploration that are foundational to learning to read, write, compute mathematically and think. Our goal is to give them a love of learning and a sense of wonder that will last a lifetime and motivate them to study during even the most testing times of their long school careers.

Playing for Learning

At CHIREC, we believe in the natural learning abilities of children. Our preschools in Hyderabad offer a stimulating environment with activities such as Show & Tell, Table-Top Cooking, Free Play, Screen-Free Robotics, Puppet Shows, Field Trips, and Pet Day. These experiences build creativity, imagination, and essential physical, social, and emotional skills.

A Safe & Caring Environment for Your Child

At CHIREC, we are a family. Our campuses are a welcoming and safe space for children to begin discovering the world around them. Each classroom of 26 to 30 students is supported by 2 teachers and 1 support staff. A home away from home, our child-friendly campuses are equipped with age-appropriate classrooms, play areas, library corners, gardens and puppet theatres to stimulate their young minds.

Our campuses and buses are secured with round-the clock CCTV monitoring. We have Lady Conductors who travel in buses along with the students and ensure that children are only handed over to parent-authorised personnel. Students’ RFID cards also help to track their movement.

Building Strong Literacy & Numeracy Skills

Our preschool students take part in a custom-designed Literacy Programme that creatively introduces them to phonics followed by alphabets, allowing them to read faster and with more confidence. Our child-friendly characters take our students on a voyage of discovery through stories, helping them develop social and emotional skills and a love of reading from a young age. These healthy habits support the formation of strong reading, listening, and speaking skills.

Our numeracy programme incorporates sensory play, Montessori activities, and practical scenarios to help students count, measure, sort, identify patterns, solve number problems, and develop their logical thinking.

Achieving Early Developmental Milestones

We identify each child’s individual needs and in partnership with parents, gently guide them towards achieving their developmental milestones across the key areas:

  • Language & Social Skills
  • Physical Dexterity
  • Inquiry–Based Learning
  • Creative Thinking

Cultivating Independence

Through the creative use of props and role plays, we guide children to discover the world around us. By participating in real-time scenarios such as gardening, visiting a fruit market, or boarding a plane, we inculcate a strong sense of student agency and independence that carries them through later years of life.

Celebrating Your Child’s Learning

As your child grows into a confident, curious and expressive individual, we celebrate them and their milestones. This goes a long way in developing their self-esteem and inspiring a love for lifelong learning. We keep students engaged and motivated by celebrating Colour Days, 25, 50 and 100 Days of School, Teachers’ Day, Children’s Day and more.

Active Engagement with Parents

Our parent community is a significant place for us. Parents are welcomed into our school and become involved in classroom activities through our Reading Programme, Know My Parent sessions, Coffee with Class Teachers, and attending various school events such as Curriculum Day, Children’s Day, and our Annual Concerts.

We also believe in seamless, timely and continual communication with parents through the Student Diary, Today@CHIREC updates, Weekly Transaction Reports, Monthly Newsletters, and informal and formal Parent-Teacher Meets throughout the year. To continuously improve our services, we also invite parents to audit the school’s safety, transport and lunch systems and share their feedback.

Raima’s experience has had a wonderful experience at CHIREC. As parents we are really happy with our decision to choose CHIREC. Raima looks forward to going to school every day. Especially the days when she has an activity like Show and Tell, and morning assembly. We have seen Raima grow into a more social and confident child during her time at CHIREC.

Her knowledge of our world, culture, and society has increased and she is excited to learn more and share her learnings with us.

As a parent, I can tell you, my husband and I are so very pleased with CHIREC’s methods of teaching. We are truly delighted with how our child was embraced, nurtured, and supported by the teachers and staff. Lakshita is excited to go to school and learn new things each day. The combination of the teaching methods and philosophy along with a great ecosystem has allowed my child to excel both academically and personally. The administration was very attentive and accommodating. The integrated learning pedagogy has really changed the education system and made it enriching.

We feel that Lakshita’s exposure to learning at CHIREC has been a step in the right direction. Nurturing a 3-year-old to a well-rounded child eager to learn, ask questions, get the logic behind everything that comes their way and ultimately making thoughtful choices at 5. This is progress and the job done right. Kudos to CHIREC for always looking out and bringing out the best in them.

It has been an enriching experience, I have seen my child develop social skills which I am happy about. The teachers listened to our feedback patiently and gave us appropriate feedback for my child’s overall growth.  Aarna has been very vocal about her requirements, she has improved her social skills and expresses her feelings very honestly which is helpful. She has started interacting with the kids in our neighbourhood, and made new friends, it is a learning experience for us as parents too as we understand her better, so fewer meltdowns and more meaningful toddler discussions 🙂.

She has settled very well, and looks forward to meeting her friends and teachers.

Ms. Preyal Shah

For our kid, it has been an experience of both comfort and discovery. He loves learning about various themes – like colours, shapes, animals, and they are also being done in a fun manner. The concepts are also repeated which enables him to relate to them in other places like home and social settings. The introduction to music and songs was wonderful for him. He enjoys it and in the beginning was happy to buy his own small guitar just like his music sir. He also hums tunes and dances to music involuntarily. He has gradually developed confidence in communicating with people. He has been able to start acting independently even at home, like packing his bag, eating out of his plate, removing his shoes and socks at the door.

Mr. Bharat Shastry

Our child’s experience in your pre-primary program has been truly wonderful. The nurturing environment provided by your dedicated teachers has played a crucial role in our child’s early development.

There have been several notable instances that highlight our child’s growth and development since starting at your school. One significant milestone was witnessing their newfound enthusiasm for storytelling and imaginative play. Moreover, we’ve observed a remarkable improvement in their social skills. Our child has become more confident in interacting with peers, initiating conversations, and participating actively in group activities.

Our child absolutely loves coming to school. The engaging activities, friendly classmates, and the overall positive atmosphere make each school day something our child looks forward to with excitement.

Ms. Kallol Sen

The school has done a tremendous job in taking personal care of the child with constant feedback and updates through the app and the diary along with personal attention to ensure our child adapts to the new environment. The meal plans and menu provide an excellent balanced diet and the daily pictures and weekly updates make the parent completely aware of all the great learnings that occur routinely. For our kid it was not easy to adapt suddenly to a new environment here and thanks to the teachers and other support staff and her new friends here, the change was seamless for her.

Our child loves attending school and her time on the school bus. She has made great friends on the bus and in class and the care and affection along with the support she gets at school, it has turned out to be another home for her. She can express herself freely, learns best practices in academics/social behavior along with enjoying the atmosphere at school. Even though she is a picky eater she is super fond of the school menu. In fact, she gets perturbed when weekends arrive as the school remains closed.

Ms. Suhanshi Sen

CHIREC provides excellent care for my child, Kabir. The teachers are attentive, kind, and make him feel safe and happy. The facilities are clean, secure, and designed for young children. Overall, I’m very pleased with the nurturing environment. 

Kabir loves going to CHIREC every day. He gets excited telling me about his friends, activities, and what he learned. His favorite things are the pet show, festivals, supermarket visits, and the annual function. CHIREC makes learning engaging and fun.
