Prodigy Public School is situated in the Lush green pollution free environment at Wagholi on Pune – Nagar high way and is about 18 kms from Pune Railway station.
A Picture perfect view of the school with serenading greenery all around drives home the message “back to Nature’’.
“Education in its holistic form at the school is the pivot around which the functioning of the school revolves.”
The foundation of this unique school was laid way back on 12th June 2006. with classes from Nur. to std. V with 47 students & a Staff of 13. Now the seed has grown to big huge tree in the vicinity of Wagholi campus. i.e. Prodigy Public School, wherein now the present strength of the school is 2468 students with highly qualified Required staff and now will gradually go up till std XII.
Our endeavor is to make each and every child of our school an excellent Prodigy in life as a true citizen of the Nation and worldwide.
We are at the junction where one chapter closes and a new one begins. It is overwhelming to know that we now count 7 years of the inception of our school.
The learning of education evolving and the effort will never cease at Prodigy.
What a journey it has been! A journey of faith with each year, having its own triumphs and struggles and yet unique in many ways.
At Prodigy through the process of education, we endeavor to provide our learners with “ wings & roots .’’ Wings to score fearlessly while being firmly rooted to our culture & thereby negate any possibility of ever going astray. Prodigy school will remain a land mark in the re-inculcation of the golden era and we will take world in our stride. So the focus today in teaching has shifted from Traditional Schooling to Enriching Schooling & Empowering Schooling. Teaching is no longer teacher centered. It is student centered, under CCE evaluation. Here the teacher has to assess the student’s progress in fluency, accuracy & clarity in oral language abilities through communication based activities.
To improve the teaching learning process i.e. to formative & summative assessments are made throughout the year and improve the listening and reading skills of students.
The learners retain more information by what they “do” as opposed to what is “heard”, “read”, “Observed”. The research led to the Development of the cone of learning which is widely use in primary schools to improve the quality of teaching learning in the classrooms. Today this “Learning by doing ” has become known as “Experiential learning ” or “Action/active learning ”.
It reveals that “Action/active learning”techniques result in up to 90 % retention. people learn best when they use perceptual learning styles which involve hands on Method of teaching through experiences. perceptual learning styles are sensory based. The more sensory channels possible in interacting with a resource, the better is the chance that many students can learn from it. According to Dale, teachers should teach through activities that build upon more real-life experiences. The educational institutions today are rapidly adopting the Methods which represent the Dales theory in order improve there quality of teaching learning.

Our Approach & Method
“If a child is not able to learn the way we teach, then we should teach the way they learn.”
The pre-primary curriculum is designed around the 5-step Experiential Learning Method that replaces the one step telling approach
The themes are introduced through an Aim. This is followed by an Activity, Analysis, Application and then Assessment.
The approach primarily focuses on the following Six important domains of a child’s development.

- Knowledge and understanding of the world- To be able to find out the significance of the environment, people & place in their lives by using problem solving skills, experimentation, prediction, questioning and decision making a child can co-relate himself with the wirld he lives in.

- Creative development- To help children to explore & share their thoughts, ideas & feelings through a variety of mediums like art, music, movement, dance & role play activities.Creativity & self-expressions skills development Dance, Art, Painting, Drawing & coloring
Innovation in Teaching Methodology
The Most important aspects of learning is developing capacity for abstract thinking. The students learn in a verity of experiences like reading, experimenting, listening, thinking, reflecting, writing & expressing oneself in speech etc.
Thus conceptual understanding can be developed by engaging students actively in learning process. Where at Prodigy active involvement involves exploration, enquiry, questioning, discussion and reflection leading to creation of ideas. Through our technology enabled classrooms & well equipped laboratories we attempt to expose our learners to the marvels of science and technology. On the other hand to inculcate scientific temper and spirit of enquiry we have a wide range of activities & clubs such as Robotics.
Our carefully selected cultural activities at school aim to sensitize students and promote our unique legacy of ancient culture and rich tradition amongst them. Simultaneously we also consistently make efforts to nurture the student’s interest & creative abilities through diverse activities so that each learner is able to realize his/her hidden potential, develop a broad outlook and imbibe a positive attitude towards life.
Sports and physical fitness occupy a place of importance in our curriculum, not only because they ensure healthy living but also for the positive attitude and dynamic personality of students.
