LEARN at ODM - Best Play School in Bhubaneswar for Nursery, LKG & UKG
We are committed to serving the best learning experience for kids in a caring environment that excels in every expectation of parents.
ODM’s Pre-Primary Wing or Kids World comprises of Pre-Nursery, K.G-1 & K.G-2. With the use of proven version of manipulative techniques and by adopting other innovative methods, we lay emphasis on acquiring linguistic and logical ability and nurturing intelligence while stimulating interest and attention among the young students. At ODM Kids World, your young ones will be comfortably housed in spacious, colourful, comfortable, playful and highly accommodated rooms. They are provided with separate activity rooms, play areas and toddler park. Our kids’ curriculum is designed to encourage learning outcomes that focus on nurturing children to develop holistically, morally and aesthetically, while helping the little ones with knowledge acquisition and academic skills.
ODM has integrated classroom teaching with regular home assignments to develop self-discipline among students. In addition to this, there are regular graded worksheets that the students are required to complete and upload on the Learning Management System portal on ODMConnect. Finally, there is a planned approach for virtual as well as in-person doubt clearing followed by final examinations.
Daily Curriculum Plan
At the beginning of each academic year, a Daily Curriculum Plan is published for all subjects across classes. This helps bring about uniformity in the quality of sessions conducted by different teachers. These Plans are also shared with parents to keep them apprised of the academic proceedings.
Role of Class Mentors & POC
Class teachers are responsible for monitoring the progress of individual students. They engage in verbal communication with the parents fortnightly to keep track of the growth and development of the child beyond academics and maintain a record of the same. They are required to undertake hygiene activities such as marking daily attendance, and ensuring students are well groomed and in proper uniform. Class teachers also maintain a record of parents’ active contact numbers in case of any emergencies. They act as a bridge between parents and children by communicating the progress and needs of the child to the parents. If a student is absent for more than two days, the class teachers must reach out to the parents via email.
Home Assignments, Question Booklets
Home Assignments form a regular part of the curriculum wherein students are required to do a written assignment or read a chapter as part of the prerequisite of the following class. This helps inculcate self-discipline among students. For classes IX and X, ODM has designed Question Booklets in order to familiarise students with the pattern of the CBSE Board Examination, thereby enabling them to practice and prepare for the same accordingly.
LMS & Supportive Materials
The Learning Management System on ODMConnect allows teachers to upload presentations that are used for classroom proceedings which can be accessed by students. The students can upload their worksheets on the portal, which are then graded by teachers online.
Classroom – Activity-Based Learning
Across subjects, to the extent possible, teachers undertake an activity-based approach to enhance student learning. Research suggests that experiential learning increases the retention power of students. Students are informed beforehand in case they are required to carry any materials for the same. The concerned teacher explains the task followed by the activity which is then performed either by the students in groups or individually or by the teacher to demonstrate to the class, depending upon the scope and suitability of the task. Followed by the demonstration, the teacher gives a debrief to students and helps them understand the concept behind the same.
ODMConnect allows students to raise their queries which are then addressed by teachers virtually or face to face. In case of virtual solutions, teachers may share voice notes, images or written responses to resolve the queries. During examination preparation leave, special doubt clearing sessions are arranged online for all subjects to address the last-minute queries of students. This session is conducted in small groups to ensure individual attention.
Special Academic Initiatives
At ODM, we recognize that not every student is the same and has the same potential. Keeping their individuality and varied learning needs in mind, we conduct separate sessions for high achievers as well as remedial sessions for students who require some extra support. While the former aims to prepare students for Olympiads and other competitive exams, the latter focuses on strengthening the foundation of the students in order to aid their current and future academic learning.
Ensuring Quality in Academics
At ODM, we have a guidebook called “Teacher’s Notes,” wherein for every class, every subject and every session, there is a pre-documented note on what the flow of each session should be, what are the topics to be covered and what are the learning outcomes. This helps ensure uniformity and quality of teaching across various instructors.
