DISCOVERY WAY OF LEARNING - Discovery Packets are the backbone of GDA teaching philosophy.

Discovery Packets are the packaging of tools needed to attain a specific learning goal. These tools and artefacts are creatively woven together to seamlessly integrate learning media, activities, concepts and events to leverage various teaching methodologies catering to various learning styles. The goal of a Discovery packet is to ensure that a child experiences the moment of complete clarity for every concept, that we call as Discovery Moment.

Discovery Moments are facilitated by Digital Classrooms, Field Trips, Guest Lectures, Viral Web Content, World’s Top 100 Books, Montessori toys, Role Play collections,STEM Lab Science kits, Tablet based Science Tablet & Maths Apps, Experiential Gadgets and manipulatives, Language Labs, Audio Visual resources, Sports and Games, Real Life Connections and Online assessments which are cutting edge offerings from the education industry.

Discovery Packets are designed keeping in mind Howard Gardener’s Multiple Intelligence Theory. Each activity in the packet caters to a particular intelligence of the child. This theory has emerged from recent cognitive research and documents the extent to which students possess different kinds of minds and therefore learn, remember, perform, and understand in different ways.

According to this theory: "We are all able to know the world through language, logical-mathematical analysis, spatial representation, musical thinking, the use of the body to solve problems or to make things, an understanding of other individuals, and an understanding of ourselves. Where individuals differ is in the strength of these intelligences - the so-called profile of intelligences -and in the ways in which such intelligences are invoked and combined to carry out different tasks, solve diverse problems, and progress in various domains."

gDS Discovery Packets are well-rounded with learning objectives, concept delivery ideas, practical activities, assessment methods and homework worksheets. The packets also converge to the career options and latest happenings, keeping the child well aware and equipped with general knowledge. Most importantly Discovery Packets create an atmosphere of learning and nudge children to ultimately learn through enquiry and discovery.

Pre-Primary & Elementary Years at GDS

According to brain development research 90% of brain is developed at the age of 5 years, thus gDS Pre-Primary Discovery Packets are particularly equipped to deliver fundamental concepts in early years. Discovery Packets help children internalise concepts such as colours, shapes, letters, numbers, seasons and such.

It revolves around developmental domains of the early childhood years. It exposes the children gradually and naturally to the world of technology and is integrated with activity based learning. The packets are weaved and integrated with the proven methodologies of playway, Montessori, Reggio Emilia and Waldorf. The well segmented and classified program ensures an effective implementation in a naturally adaptive manner.

The Playgroup and Nursery curriculum focuses on developing fine and gross motor skills, skills of language, communication, identifying and relating to surroundings. Holistic growth and development of child in terms of emotional, physical, intellectual and social is given importance.
