Developing the Eagerness to Learn
Little Star Academy aims at developing an ever-learning attitude in its children. ‘Learning has no end and perfection is horizon.’ We focus on developing the urge in our students to keep on learning. ‘Reading and questioning’ is thus the major hobby of the students at our academy. As Socrates said, ‘The only true wisdom is in knowing that you know nothing.’ Kids enjoy taking on new roles and responsibilities. Giving them tiny tasks and projects develops in them the habit to take initiative and perform. Tiny tots also have the habit of questioning a lot. Our chore is to build on this habit by entertaining every little query they have.
Confidence Development Activities
Exposure brings confidence and confidence brings optimism leading to success. The multiple competitions including essay writing, extempore, debates, quizzes bring the best out of the student. Besides intra-school competitions we appreciate participation in inter-school competitions which develops a self-reliant personality in the students. It excavates their confidence shunning the word nervousness from their dictionary.
“Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope and confidence.”
– Helen Keller
