18) Print Rich Environment
Print Rich Environment in the class room
In the well-established and well-organized classroom at The Dnyanada School, there is print everywhere! This does not negate the fact that visual picture reminders of classroom schedules, rules, etc., are critical to the social and emotional development of the children. However, words are placed next to any visual clue to help the children understand about print. Here are ways that a teacher at Dnyanada creates a print-rich environment.
Posted Alphabet –
There are at least two alphabet charts posted in every classroom in the Lower Primary classes. These charts are at the eye level of the children.
Upcoming Artists –
Different drawing done by the students is displayed on the soft board to encourage the upcoming artists.
Classroom Libraries –
Each classroom has at least 4 books per child available at all times. They keep them in a shelf in one corner in the classroom where the children, in their free time, can go and read.
Writing Centers –
‘Healthy handwriting is a master tool.’ Keeping this in mind at Dnyanada, we have special handwriting expert to improve the writing of the teachers and as well as the students. A monthly based programs helps our student to improve not only their handwriting but also impires them to use handwriting as master tool to remove distraction of mind and improve study skill as well.
School Classroom has-
- wide variety of tools to develop fine motor skills and handwriting skills. These tools include large pencils, large crayons, large brushes, markers, finger paints, chalk, etc.
- children are provided with different types of writing materials for experimentation. Newsprint, construction paper, tag board, colored and white paper are all part a long list of different types of paper that are fun for the beginning writer.
Display Boards and Soft Boards –
Each class from lower primary to Class 10 is provided with soft boards inside and outside their classrooms. The work of the children, their projects, write-ups, charts with subject related information is displayed. The boards are filled with the colorful displays of every subject which make the corridors and the classrooms lively and motivating for the children.
Supporting literacy in the classroom is critical in the early years in helping children become literate individuals. Good teachers continually ask themselves what more they can do to create a literacy-rich environment for their students.

We have a day care facility for the staff member’s kids.
20) ETH Software:

21) Caring and nurturing learning environment
Traditionally, teachers used to think of a conducive classroom environment as one where students are under the complete control of the teacher through rules and regulations which he or she has set.
However the trend today is different. The classroom and school environment is now more inclined towards providing a caring and nurturing learning environment.
It is just the same at Dnyanada English School. It is composed not only of the physical features of the school and classroom but also the attitudes of the students and the teacher. The development of the students is tied to the physical and socio-emotional climate that they experience in Dnyanada English School.
At Dnyanada English School forming congenial relationships is a priority by carrying out respectable dialogues, by practicing encouragement and affirmation, by taking decisions through shared involvement and resolving conflict through amicable methods.
