About Us


The Little Republic offers opportunities for Discovering and Developing the Potential in your child.Our vision is to give the child the freedom to experiment, explore and experience in a safe environment where the child is not where as,our mission is to provide opportunities to develop children into

“INDEPENDENT LEARNERS, THINKERS, SUCCESSFUL INDIVIDUALS and LEADERS”.

“Children must be taught how to think, not what to think.” Margaret Mead

Our Philosophy

To us each child comes with own set of strengths, learns at own pace, and grows into an independent personality.

So it is important that we respect each child as an individual. Respect their efforts, struggles, feelings, and intelligence. And most importantly respect their natural and voracious capacity to learn.

Our effort is to make them learn by doing .When they do it for their own reasons, at their own pace and in their own space, learning happens. We believe that each child is different; All they need is an environment that offers no comparison, no judgement, no expectation. Just lot of mental and emotional space to grow.

A place where they can think, decide, make mistakes, struggle, laugh, cry, fail, succeed and think more!

Vision

To provide an environment where they can Experience, Experiment and Explore and construct their own learning.

Mission

Values /10 Commandments to discover your child

Here is where we share with you the ten principles on which we base all our work with children. While we believe that these principles are universal, it is important that we make their practice also universal.

Respect

“If you lead through fear you will have little respect; but if you lead through respect, you will have little to fear”

Respect each child as an individual. Respect their efforts, struggles, feelings, and intelligence. The more the child gets respected, the more the child respects himself or herself, and more the child starts respecting the world around.

Respect them by focusing not on the quality of results, but on the quality of efforts. Respect them by accepting their failures and their frustrations because learning can, at times, be a frustrating process. It is only when we respect our failure that we persevere, we show Respect them by enjoying their wrongs as much as their rights.

Respect them by agreeing to their demands of working through their stronger intelligence. Remember, a dancer can learn more by moving. Also, respect their opinions, views, choices and decisions.

Respect them by understanding that their feelings, their emotions are most important to them. Respect them by not trampling their feelings, just because they are children, but by acknowledging their emotions as top priority.

“I am always doing that which I cannot do, in order that I learn how to do it” Pablo Picaso Progress is more important than performance. How much I am better than myself as compared to yesterday is more important than how much I am better than somebody else. The true competition to myself is ME!

Once we shift from result to process, from comparison to cooperation, from evaluation to reflection, we will shift from building castles to building bridges.

Freedom from Stress -If stress is low, freedom to explore is high. If exploration is high, learning is multi dimensional! Without the constant threat of ‘failure’, there is actually a lot more room for Freedom from Short-Cuts – No cheating, no lying, no pulling the other down, no favours, no temptation to breach the integrity. The head is held high.

Freedom from Limits – Progress liberates: Did I do my best? Did I enjoy doing it? Did I learn from it? Did I stretch myself beyond my limits? Did I go beyond the edge of cliff? Did I learn how “The most important question is not how I motivate the child, but how I motivate myself to make learning fun”

Enjoyment is a precondition to learning. . Here is the recipe:-Ensure that your mind is open – there is no right answer (or even if there is – it isn’t being worshiped). So the child decides how much and what to put in how much and what to take out.
The child explores.

Ensure that you spend a lot of time thinking. Thinking is fun and thinking is unending. The key ingredient here is Challenge. It adds sizzle, induces instant enthusiasm and releases loads of positive energy.

Goal Based

“The starting point of all achievement is desire. Keep this constantly in mind. Weak desire brings weak results, just as a small amount of fire makes a small amount of heat” If the child is clear about the goal of an activity or a learning, then interest is aroused followed by involvement and commitment. Set challenging goals, show how they are meaningful, and let the child’s ingenuity take over the effort to achieve them. Keep these two critical guidelines in mind: Make the goals Meaningful: Many goals seem artificial to children – specially the way we create “shoulds” around them. My favourite is “you should learn history”. Make the goals exciting: When children set their own goals they are pretty excited about them. The key is to let children set their own goals. The key to children setting goals is to give them meaningful choices.

The Joy of doing

“The great aim of education is not knowledge but action” Herbert Spencer
Doing leads to involved and experiential learning. Continuous efforts, not strength or intelligence, is the key to unlocking potential. Education is not about feeding consumers but about creating producers.

Production of any kind requires complex and higher order thinking skills at multiple levels resulting into a ‘mentally wealthy’ child. Lets understand that enterprise is the biggest learning, that effort is the best result, that doing is most fun and that earn is part of learn. Teach your child the most essential secret of success – ACTION:

Let your child not just eat – but cook simple foods.
Let your child not just listen – but tell stories, news or opinions.
Let your child not just read – but write her views, feelings or reviews to the editor.
Let your child not just laugh – but make other laugh by telling jokes, showing antics, modulating voice or dramatising.
Let your child not just play – but invent new games, new rules etc. Let your child not just be entertained – but also entertain with shows or art.
Let your child not just ask for self – but also give (service).
Let your child not just buy – but earn.

Interest

“What lies behind or before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.”

Interests of each child are his or her focal points -direction of their energy. Channelling this energy leads to accelerated learning.

Just as hunger is natural to the child’s body, learning is natural to its mind. Only they want to be stimulated instead of instructed, encouraged instead of compared, challenged instead of forced.

Reward them handsomely for their efforts through sincere, specific and sensitive Praise. Give praise to encourage, guide and inspire. Sensitive praise makes us go down to the child’s level. It makes us look into the child’s eyes. It makes us Listen. It makes us observe. Specific praise makes us look into a child’s effort and see what efforts she has put in. Instead of just saying, “very good”, we say, “You must have worked with lot of concentration and imagination to have made the purple cloud so big and imposing”.

Sincerity comes from being genuinely interested in the child’s work. Not in evaluating the work, but looking at the work from “what kind of feeling, somebody who has made this, must be, It is because of our desire to give the best ‘reward’ that we step down from the right and-wrong ‘high’ chair of a referee. We come to the ground and inspire the child like a COACH. “Education is nine tenths encouragement.”

Freedom with responsibility

“There are no hands so small, that they cannot make a difference in the world”
They say you can’t put a man guard outside and keep the gun with you. When we give responsibility, we give the child the power to fulfil the responsibility – we give the gun in the guard’s hand.

“Anybody can learn anything – Just not the same way; Just not the same day! ”
Differences in children makes our work so interesting Lets’ acknowledge these differences and ensure that we tune our efforts accordingly.

Howard Gardner said, “We are all so different largely because we have all different combinations of intelligence. If we recognized this, I think we will have at least a better chance of dealing appropriately with the many problems that we face in the world.”

Just as we cook according to the different tastes; we need to vary our parenting. The essence of effectiveness is flexibility and adaptability.

Peer-to-Peer learning

We promote ‘Peer to peer learning’ as a form of cooperative learning that enhances the value of student interaction and results in various advantageous learning outcomes.

Research indicates that peer learning activities typically result in: (a) team-building spirit and more supportive relationships; (b) greater psychological well-being, social competence, communication skills and self-esteem; and (c) higher achievement and greater productivity in terms of enhanced learning outcomes.

We divide the students into peer groups and ensure that desired outcomes are achieved in the above mentioned areas.

Blue circle represents the world .Each hand print represents an intelligence. We work with Multiple Intelligence’s to roll out our integrated curriculum so the child can use 8 different ways to experience learning . Our philosophy is to set the child thinking in multiple dimensions so the child can explore each experience in all its richness.
