There is no substitute for creative and imaginative play when it comes to teaching. Every child is born with an imagination. Allowing children to exercise their imagination enhances their creativity and creates better social understanding. This is the strength of children - their ability to pretend and fix problems with their imagination. To create a better understanding of various concepts, Shivjyotians are engaged in role plays. They become doctors, politicians and other community helpers and enact their lives. Through this activity, they develop love, respect, and appreciation for the world around them.
At Shiv Jyoti we encourage students to have their own opinion towards different subjects in the world. To enhance the way of expressing their thoughts and views on different subjects, we conduct debate competitions for our kids.
Circle time is the time when friendship blossoms as children interact, socialize and share their thoughts and experiences with each other. Various activities are designed, creating opportunities for kids to experience the joy of talking and communicating with each other.

Developing social, emotional, and personal skills are some of the primary objectives of the Circle Time. The activity also fosters problem solving skills, language building and confidence as children are encouraged to express their views freely.
