IT ALL STARTED 15 YEARS BACK WHEN...
We started our first campus at South City-1, 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 Pre-School/ Play-School & Day-Care/ Child-Care centre - evolving to become one of the best kindergarten & now primary school @ Tata Primanti 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" in gurgaon and provided leadership to create a whole new approach of engaging care, development & learning for children upto 12 years of age, many of whom often have to be persuaded to go home after school and just love spending time at The Sixth Element school-daycare. 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 primary & eventually 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. We have started our new nursery & primary school (with daycare) campus. Like our 15 year old campus at South City-1 , this is a green Eco-friendly school focused on sustainability; is an actvities filled engaging experiential learning environment, 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).
