90% of a child’s brain development happens before the age of 6! With this in mind, we have developed an Early Years Curriculum, that is activity-based and celebrates a child’s in-born capability to “learn by doing”.
We draw our inspiration from the work of revolutionary educators like Piaget, Froebel, Maria Montessori, Mahatma Gandhi and J. Krishnamurti, and are committed to child-centric education principles. Our program is proven to create a strong foundation at the preschool level and encourages self-learning from a young age.
Our ABCD of learning
Activity-Based: Enabling learning through joyful and hands-on experiences
Belonging: Creating an environment where a child feels heard and respected
Curiosity: Encouraging children to ask questions as they are naturally inclined to
Differential Learning: Supporting different learning levels and paces
DKS Hippocampus Schools follow an NCERT-based curriculum that is the standard across reputed institutions. To make classrooms engaging, and facilitate quick learning we have developed child-centric lesson plans. Our Lesson Plans are developed by experts in the field of education and they incorporate the latest methodologies.
At DKS Hippocampus Schools, we value our teacher’s time, we believe that a teacher’s time should be dedicated towards the student's learning outcome.
Every single unit comes with:
Pre-designed activity sheets
All our lesson plans are focussed on differential learning outcomes and encourages the all-round development of the child. Efforts have also been taken to address the requirements of remedial and advanced students. A detailed assessment is done for each child, and personalized reports are shared with parents on a periodic basis.
To ensure continuity & enable each student to leverage their core strength all our Lesson Plans are designed keeping Activity based learning and constructivist classrooms in mind.
The curriculum is student centric, enabling students to explore, enquire, collaborate, handle materials and work in groups. Based on the National Education policy 2020, DKS Hippocampus Schools adopts experiential learning, and the focus is on skill based vocational courses, arts & sports integrated education, as well as story-telling based pedagogy.
An important aspect of secondary education is exposure to innovative solutions for effective and experiential learning.

The Vision of DKS Hippocampus STE(A)M labs is to introduce the concepts of Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics in a practical way to students.
STE(A)M Labs at DKS Hippocampus Schools will be equipped with experiment kits and spaces to design/build/test the experiments. Students will be guided & supervised through the year, with assessments put in place to evaluate the impact of these sessions.
A science fair to showcase the learning of the students to parents and stakeholders will be organized at the end of the year
As our children move to higher classes, concepts in Core Subjects become more complex and demanding. These subjects require a teacher who can easily translate theoretical content to practical applications making the subject interesting for the children and easy to comprehend. Recognising the need for this additional support, Hippocampus Schools engages with Expert Teachers and engages children with very interesting digital content. With technology and willing partners, DKS Hippocampus Schools brings the best teachers of the country together and provides live classroom teaching to our children during the years that they need this the most, in the subjects that are extremely crucial to the children for their higher studies and professions.
