The Sinhgad schools foster an atmosphere of trust, love and respect for each person as the basis for sound education. The highly
qualified professional staff of the school works closely with parents to ensure that both home and school provide the best environment for the growth of the
Our effort is focused not only on pure study and hence, we have provided each child with many opportunities in both academics and co-curricular activities and become the best person he or she can be.
We implement a philosophy of Personalized Education. We believe that all students are equal and must make their own mark within the community. Each student's individuality will be respected and the student will be taught to compete against himself or herself rather than against others. Good behavior must similarly be not to impress others but because it satisfies one’s own self respect.
Character training is fostered by the environment we create and the opportunities we offer. Students will be given the opportunity to handle responsibilities and also to accept personal responsibility, to acquire new skills and to make decisions for themselves.
School years are crucial for the development of good habits and character which are the building blocks of excellence. The habit of study, the love of learning and the quest for truth, the responsible use of freedom, personal veracity and an ardor to help improve society, are especially vital. These tools are essential to empower the student to become an excellent professional and a mature and responsible citizen. It is well known that the critical developmental period for these qualities is the schooling years. The earlier a child benefits from an education which fosters these good qualities the better the chance he or she has to reach his or her full potential and to make a positive contribution to society.
In order to accomplish our goals and take our students to the highest level of achievement possible, we will need to work together and that’s what we aim at Sinhgad Spring Dale School from its inception. Let us together build a generation with an enquiring mind, principles, a sense of service and compassion for those less fortunate, respect for nature, tolerance, and the qualities to become good citizens of India and the world.

Teaching in play way is based on Project Methodology. Project Methodology brings about an All Round Development for it covers the different areas of development. Every month a new project is planned. Using Web technique we plan activities that revolve around this project. Let us now see for eg. how a project Food we eat is planned according to Project Method.
Sinhgad Spring Dale Nursery School has its own colorful and graded Designer Workbooks, for all subjects covered at pre -school level like English Language workbook, English Reader, Number Workbook, E.V.S. Workbook ,Phonics Work book, M.R. Script Handwriting book, Rhymes book . All the poems and rhymes are also given in musical form in a CD. All the project related stories told at school are also recorded in an Audio Visual CD.
This Syllabus is centralized for all branches of Sinhgad Schools.
This method is followed scrupulously in every project at Spring Dale Nursery School. Not a single day goes without learning something new. Each day is interesting.
Learning in any new language takes place in 4 stages through Listening, Speaking, Reading and Writing. While the first 2 skills develop at home, the next two skills develop in the school. The aim of any pre –school curriculum is therefore to develop children in the pre- reading and pre- writing skills, as well as to develop an awareness about themselves and their surroundings.
This is a very difficult job as the children entering the school at 2 ½ years in the Mini KG are like blank slates. Introduction to Alphabet, Numbers , Days of the week, Months of the year are all abstract concepts for them. The approach has to be from concrete to abstract, from known to unknown. The Play way Method is therefore the best way to plan the Curriculum for the preschoolers.
At “Spring Dale Nursery School” maximum effort is made to make learning a joyful experience by following the Playway Method to its core and make each concept interesting for learning .(For eg. before introducing letter ” A “ children will actually see many different objects beginning with the “phonic sound” of “A” like apple, axe, ant, alligator, ankle, ambulance etc. They will make body actions forming letter A, do Ariel writing of the letter saying a jingle “Up and Down with a line in between”, they will also color the letter and only then would call it as letter A of the alphabet. Games would be further played for letter recognition ,phonic sound recognition for reinforcing the abstract concept).
