A positive learning climate in a school for young children is a composite of many things. It is an attitude that respects children. It is a place where children receive guidance and encouragement from responsible adults around them. Being a part of Round Square Organization provides us with opportunities to create an atmosphere that builds self confidence in children so that they can dare to take risks. It nurtures a love for learning.
Membership of the round square network offers schools a framework for excellence and continuous improvement, along with structured opportunities to collaborate and share experiences with like-minded peers, around the world.
Founded in 1966, Round Square maintains and facilitates a worldwide network of 160 schools in 40 countries.
All the schools who are part of Round Square share a holistic approach to learning; built around the SIX IDEALS of learning –Internationalism, Democracy, Environment, Adventure, Leadership and Service.
