Who is your childhood hero?
A quick answer to the question may give a few names like Mohanlal, Kapil Dev, Michael Jackson, Sachin or may be Amitabh Bachan. Have you ever heard someone answering Charles Correa or Srinivasa Ramanujan or Jagadish Chandra Bose? The latter category is of a famous architect, mathematician, and scientist respectively and the former belongs to the popular genere of actor, cricketer, singer . A generation ago-to be precise our generaion- loved the former category and ended up making a career in the latter. Thanks to a society that thinks only engineers, doctors and scientist are intellectuals and can earn a living.
Today, we have a different story to tell. Stories from The Little Republic, Trivandrum which offers opportunities for Discovering and Developing the Potential in your child.
The neighborhood communities are in the misconception that The Little Republic is a Kindergarten. However, the prominent schools in the city where Little Republicans have enrolled for primary years (Grade 1 onwards) will tell you what The Little Republic is all about. These children are ambassadors of The Little Republic- A true place to nurture your child’s potential. I am not sure if we need to say this and on record no one has endorsed this officially.
The Little Republic inculcates the habit of self-reliance and self regulation in children to make them stand out in the competitive world as individual who value character over competence. The approach of building relationship with children and their family help children to develop a sense of trust and builds confidence in their identity. The value, care and the attention the school is giving to the children help students blossom into good citizens and good students too.
Obviously, it is fair to tell about the approach The Little Republic is following. The school works on the “theory of multiple intelligences” developed by Dr. Howard Gardner in 1983, whereby he proposed that all people have different kinds of intelligences including musical, interpersonal, spatial-visual, and linguistic intelligences. The different bits of intelligence are listed as linguistic intelligence, logical-mathematical intelligence, spatial intelligence, bodily-kinesthetic intelligence, musical intelligence, interpersonal intelligence, intrapersonal intelligence and naturalist intelligence. An individual may possess one more intelligence.
At the Little Republic, the different bits of intelligence of children are recognized through various activities, then develop the abilities through self-assessment and self-correction. Many parents think this is not possible, but the children at The Little Republic are doing this from pre-school for the last 4 years in Trivandrum,Kerala now.
“Our approach to children makes us different. In the present world, most of the schools and educational institution pay attention to linguistic and logical-mathematical intelligence and the curriculum is built accordingly. However, The Little Republic is focusing on the interpersonal intelligence of children and help them to make it strong. We believe in the theory that children are intelligent in a variety of ways and help them to excel and develop their skills”, says Nisha Hassan, Founder Director of The Little Republic.
Naturally, every parent wishes to give a better life for their children, the best in the world. The Little Republic offers freedom in education through encouraging them to be themselves, to set their personal targets & challenges.
Now it’s your child’s turn to answer the question who is his/her hero ? AR Rahman? Sundar Pichai?Mary Kom?Chetan Bhagat ?Malala Yusufzai?
Let our children have the freedom to be thinkesr AND dreamers …
Let them discover their true selves and be their own heroes!
