PHILOSOPHY
Pre- Primary philosophy:

“Character formation cannot be thought. It comes from experience and not from explanation.”
- Maria Montessori
Dr.Maria Montessori whose name is synonymous with education was born in the year 1870 in Rome. She was the first woman medical graduate from the University of Rome & also an eminent child psychologist. She has been accredited with many firsts in her life and one of them is the important & famous Montessori system of education. She started experimenting & evolving a unique system of education from the year 1909 onwards. This system of education is not rigid so as to be followed mechanically, it is a continuously evolving process built on continuous experimentation and time tested practical research.
The teaching method is a process of self learning & self motivation wherein the children are allowed to pursue the tasks independently, with very little interference and more of guidance from the teachers coaching them. There are various teaching aids developed over years of scientific research and the same is made available to our children at Malgudi Vidyanikethan.
Pre-primary Curriculum:
“Adults work to finish a task, but the child works in order to grow, and is working to create the adult, the person that is to be.” 
- Maria Montessori
Our curriculum is based on the Montessori methods of teaching and is developmentally appropriate, integrated with play way methods and is creative. It aims to instill a sense of care for others, self and the environment in our children. The Malgudi Vidyanikethan curriculum content is secular and the program reflects the cultural diversity found in our country.
The curriculam content is constantly evolving. A brief about the curriculum can be found

Primary philosophy:
"Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.”
- Mahatma Gandhi
At Malgudi vidyanikethan our teaching methodology is a process of self learning & self motivation wherein the children are encouraged to ask questions & seek answers. We intended to inculcate a sense of enquiry in our students. We believe that teachers are the true knowledge bearers & must seek to improve upon themselves, so that they act as able guides to direct the children on the right path thereby unlocking the hidden genius in them. We feel that our children should be confident to face the life’s challenges with ease.

At Malgudi Vidyanikethan we believe that Schooling is not only about academics, scores & competition! It is our profound belief that all the children are smart and they should not be compared to each other and pressurized to conform to set academic benchmarks there by creating nervous & anxiety driven individuals. We encourage our children to concentrate on learning the concepts rather than cramming. Ultimately we aim at creating caring and passionate individuals & not well trained knowledgeable robots!!
Primary Curriculum:
“A man is but the product of his thoughts what he thinks, he becomes.” 
- Mahatma Gandhi
Keeping in line with the philosophy of Malgudi vidyanikethan, we have adopted XSEED which is a “Teaching Improvement System”.
