— The Infant SSY Programme (ISP)
Each age of a child calls for a specific type of education. Education specifically designed by us for children in the age bracket of zero to six years is imparted by us through a special programme called ISP.
ISP (Infant SSY Programme) is a nine-week experiential workshop that guides parents on how to bring up children right from the stage of conception up to 6 or even 8 years of age. Highly able trainers, with years of experience in coaching parents in raising children in the most productive yet effortless way, conduct these programs.
Any couple that is planning to have a child or is expecting a child is very much eligible for this programme. Both the parents need to do the programme together. We often conduct it for the other guardians like paternal and maternal grandparents, as well. The greater the number of family members doing this programme together, the better. There are special camps we conduct for the maids who are as instrumental in raising a child as parents or grandparents.
Like most of our other programs, ISP is also absolutely focused on teaching you the practical tools and tricks of joyful child-raising as much as it is about instilling in you the spirit of genuine value-based parenting.
It deals with the overall development of the child, covering the physical, mental, social, emotional and spiritual areas.
Physical education is about making exercising a joy for the child. Mental education provides valuable information in a sportful, game-like manner. Social education is about developing the child’s interpersonal abilities. Emotional education is about making the child a master in expressing all his emotions effortlessly. Spiritual education ensures that the child doesn’t lose his spirit of being happy for no reason.
Our approach towards education also deals with imparting total education to the child in such a way that education relevant to all the five elements of nature, viz, earth, water, fire, air, and space, as envisaged by our ancient rishis, is covered.
Exposing a child to the facts and laws of the physical universe comprises the earth element of education. We do this through the techniques of showing flashcards, dot cards and encyclopedia bits.
Developing aesthetic sense in a child is the water element in any education. We do this through inculcating love and natural flair for arts and drama in the child.
Imbibing the values of responsibility and sharing through techniques of natural discipline is the fire element of education.
Facilitating an atmosphere where children blossom in love and compassion is the air component of education.
Bringing up the child in such a way that it opens the doorways of calmness and happiness within is the space element of any education.
Parents are educated on the importance of all these concepts when it comes to the development of the child. Our schools at Vizag, Bangalore and Pune are entirely based on imparting education along these lines to children.
The ISP programme has been attended by tens of thousands of parents across the globe. We have had countless numbers of breakthroughs in terms of the phenomenal shift ISP-trained parents have observed in their children after practical application of the core principles and techniques of ISP.
