Freely accessible learning spaces ensure comfortable stay in school. To ensure pleasing ambience for learning, entire campus is centrally air conditioned. Safety and security of each child is our utmost responsibility. Whole building is under CCTV surveillance.
Gurukulites love to be in inviting, free and comfortable atmosphere of their classrooms. This is the place where they spend great deal of their time. Lot of attention is paid to the physical environment of the classrooms. Each classroom has ‘Instructional Area’ where students gather to understand the task assigned, ‘Reading Corner’ to grab a book, and individual cubbies which children treat as their personal space. Organized spaces and cooperative learning arrangements strengthen learning experiences. Children love to decide arrangement of furniture according to classroom activity, taking care of display boards and cleanliness of their respective classrooms.

Kathashala is our story telling room. Children wait to spend time here. The reason to have a specific story telling room named as Kathashala is to bring the culture of storytelling back to the childhood. Children relive stories and give wings to their imagination here. They listen to stories in a very informal atmosphere and share a special bond with the story teller. Retelling stories, role plays, making props and reading books bring out the best in each child and facilitate cooperative learning. Telling stories using puppets is the closest to the heart of all.
Free Play Zone is hot favourite of all. It has magical effect on children that takes them to the world of their fascinations. Most adorable moments of childhood are seen here.

Dhyaan is our yoga room. This place takes the children away from the pressures of today’s world and passivity caused due to life style followed.

Art Studio is a place where freedom of expression is enjoyed and celebrated. Children amaze us with the magic they create with various art techniques learnt. Every child’s creation is different and a reflection of his/her personality. Art is a form of meditation for children. They love to sit down on cushions or lie down on floor, find connection with Earth and work meticulously. They hold their breath to paint their creations, join pieces to give form to their imagination. Every time children work on some art form they surprise everyone with their creativity. Art Studio is a place where emotions are expressed cognitively.
Study is our library. We believe that an education center is as good as its library. Study has very informal and cozy ambience to make reading an informal learning experience. In Study children get connected to the world unseen through books. Lying on cushions in their favourite place in Study and reading is a perfect setting to get lost in books. Study is a catalyst for learning and innovation, and plays a key role in supporting and developing enjoyment of reading. It is central point for engagement with all kinds of literature activities, access to information, knowledge building, deep thinking and lively discussions.
Mont Lab is “Children’s House”, a place where children feel secure, confident and where a child’s needs come first. Here, one would feel and see a general camaraderie, children chatting in low voices, working together or individually on different activities and teacher observing the child, encouraging independence and freedom of choice. Respectful and courteous behaviour between the children and between the teacher and the children is a naturally followed norm. The lab is maintained and looked after by the children and teacher, by the end of the day it mostly looks like it did at the beginning of the day.
Here children do not experience failure, but experience practice.
