The school takes special care to select and identify books that support our educational philosophy and simultaneously equip our students to be at par with desirable scholarly levels. Textbooks and recommended readings are available from the school bookstore. Stationery kits are available for Nursery, Kindergarten and Class I students and placed in the responsibility of the respective class teachers. Stationery for all other students may also be purchased from the school bookstore.
Teacher support and development is considered to be the backbone of the work at Manthan Valley. For a teacher to be effective, it is important that we recognize the factors that permit teachers to perform their roles effectively and those that do not.
Careful selection of trained teachers is followed by a strong teacher development and support programme. A well designed in-service training programme provides opportunities for teachers to:
be informed about the latest research findings in education
be in touch with their inner-self and professional development
develop interpersonal skills necessary for meaningful interaction with school-age children
learn from the strengths of experienced teachers in schools in India and abroad
upgrade their skills and knowledge levels as teachers of an integrated educational curriculum
To address the needs of the teachers at Manthan Valley, members of the core team regularly conduct training and professional support workshops. In addition, workshops are also conducted by resource persons from accomplished schools of learning and universities of higher education.
Intense in-service workshops would be conducted around each vacation of the school calendar. These are supported by fortnightly workshops where everyday situations are discussed, analyzed and resolved to create enriching environments for both teachers and the children.
Our Staff & Faculty:
