Culture is the elements of the environment into which the child is born. Every child from birth strives to accustom themselves to hthe culture into which they are born. Elements in the nature when studied in depth become scientific subject for study but when they are given to the senses and hands, they become items of culture. When the elements of nature are given to the senses and hands of the child, he starts accepting them as part of his life without any questioning thus making those items of human culture.

Various items which are provided as a part of culture are

  • The World of Land and Water
  • The World of Plants
  • The World of Animals
  • The World of Shapes
  • The World of Man(history)
  • Arts, Crafts and Traditions
  • Our aim is not only to make the child understand, and still less to force him to memorize, but so to touch his imagination as to enthuse him to his innermost core.
