Dear Parents,

It is with great pleasure and excitement that I extend my warmest greetings to you as we embark on this remarkable journey together at Jawa Altair International School (JAIS). As the Chairman of this esteemed institution, I am honoured to welcome you to our family.

At JAIS, we understand that the early years of a child's education are foundational, shaping not only their academic abilities but also their character and outlook on life. We recognize the immense responsibility entrusted to us by parents, and I assure you that we take this responsibility with the utmost seriousness and dedication.

Our approach to nurturing our tiny tots is grounded in a profound commitment to their holistic development. We believe that every child is unique and deserves individualized attention to thrive. With this belief at the core of our unique eclectic philosophy Indian Traditional Vedic Education coupled with internationally accredited Waldorf’s Education, (Waldorf’s educational philosophy – “Anthroposophy”), we have curated a nurturing global environment where your child will flourish intellectually, emotionally, and socially.

Here are some key aspects of how we ensure the well-being and development of our tiny tots: Appointing well qualified and caring educators, we are creating a safe and stimulating environment for conducive play-based learning approaches that foster creativity, curiosity, and problem-solving skills in our tiny tots. We believe that play is the primary vehicle through which young children make sense of the world around them. We maintain low student-teacher ratios to ensure that each child receives personalized attention and support.

We also believe in the importance of maintaining open and transparent communication with parents. Our doors are always open, and we encourage parents to actively participate in their child's educational journey through regular updates, parent-teacher meetings, and interactive sessions.

As we embark on this exciting adventure together, I invite you to partner with us in providing your child with a solid foundation for lifelong learning and success. Together, let us nurture the bright minds and kind hearts of our tiny tots, empowering them to become confident, compassionate, and responsible individuals tuning them to learn today and to lead tomorrow.

Thank you for entrusting us with the privilege of shaping your child's future.
