These twinkling stars will now illuminate the corridors of KNS WING, .THE PRIMARY BLOCK , of Rajendra Vidyalaya reveling under the cosseting, pampering, guidance and guardianship of the teachers who literally 'hold their hands' and escort them to the unique, exciting world of 'RV Kindergarten' which is colourful, musical, playful and activity oriented.

Young children enter preschool with a lot of curiosity, a sense of wonder and an eagerness to learn. They are attracted towards learning experiences that are engaging and pleasurable. Positive, concrete and hands-on experiences encourage young children to make choices, decisions, and explore their immediate environment. This helps them feel competent and confident.

The curriculum follows a holistic approach where practitioners support and scaffold children’s learning through enriched play experiences. The activities and play based experiences connect young children’s fascination with learning in every domain so that they can enjoy, learn and make the most of their time in preschool.
