The Sixth Element School

sixthelement.jpg
 

It all started in 2004 when...

We initiated work on our first campus at South City1, Gurgaon & started operating the Sixth Element nursery school  on children's day - Nov 14th 2004. Over the years, the school has continued to serve the community as a premium nursery preschool/ Play School & Daycare/childcare centre - evolving to become the best kindergarten school in Gurgaon, where children enjoy fun filled learning in a green, safe and engaging infrastructure. Responding to the needs of working parents, we invented the "day care" concept and provided leadership to create a whole new approach of engaged care & learning for children upto 12 years in age, many of whom often have to be persuaded to go home after school- and just love spending time at the Sixth Element school. All of this & our green inviting friendly ethos, led to lots of expat children (especially from Japanese families) coming to our school and over the years we also started getting repeated feedback from Parents & alumni  to set up a senior school.

 

RECENTLY WE TIED UP WITH THE TATA GROUP TO SET UP OUR SECOND CAMPUS.... 

At the green, verdant housing complex - Tata Primanti garden estate at Sector 72, Gurgaon. Work on developing this exciting new campus has started and we plan to commence operations in 2017. This is a green Eco-friendly school focused on sustainability (to address climate change), inculcating joy of learning, excellence, creativity & innovation, on a foundation of character (to prepare our children for the emerging new world in the coming era).
