At DLPS, there is a focused approach to making education relevant- by providing experiences & opportunities wherein our learners could apply their knowledge & connect it to real world contexts. Not only is this being achieved through linking the newspapers to the curriculum and bringing the everyday world into the classroom but also through numerous hands on projects.

The meaning of ‘knowledge’ for us is not simply ‘being able to remember’ but ‘being able to find and use it’. At DLPS, education is about building the skills to adapt to changing times. The curriculum is mapped according to age. Developmentally appropriate outcomes are designed to help a child start by discovering themselves through their school environment and then to relate their learning to the wider world.

Framework is designed with the objective to take teaching into a different realm altogether — and imbue it with genuine fun and interest for faster comprehension and understanding.

Our Pedagogy


Our methodology gives access to Real Time Coaching and Critical Thinking. Our pedagogy include:

"Visuals, Audio, Kinaesthetic, Linguistic, logical, social and solitary learning tools".

Building of socio emotional skills, empathy and inculcation of winning spirit are also the vital parts of the framework. For students, young and old alike, learning by doing activities allow knowledge to be imbibed almost unconsciously. “Take the students out of the four walls of the classroom and bring the outside world into it….” that has been the constant endeavour at DLF.

Evaluation System

The evaluation system is informal, comprehensive, non–comparative and based on continuous observation. It revolves around the perspective that each child is a unique individual with his or her own special qualities, like a flower whose seed has been endowed with specific characteristics that makes it different from every other flower and all comparisons, if any, is to be done with one’s own previous performance. Ever since the school began, the evaluation of students up to class V is done on the basis of observation by means of a detailed checklist on a continuous basis. The key personality areas have been scientifically translated into the key curriculum areas. Extensive checklists have been prepared for each of the key curriculum area.

ICT Integration

Understanding the very fact that information and knowledge are growing at an exponential rate, the fastest in the history of mankind so far, we are working towards adopting technology to keep pace with the rapidly changing times. And at the same time, continue to be the school with a soul, creating an emotionally intelligent climate in the school i.e. working towards both; a hi-tech head and a hi-touch heart.

Newer learning techniques that are products of intensive research and keep pace with evolutionary trends are now being put in place so as to create a 21st century learning environment. Efforts are on to integrate ICT at a higher level into the curriculum so as to challenge pupil’s understanding and promote greater thinking and reflection while at the same time taking care that technology works only as an enabler not as a destructor.

Life Skills is an integral part of school curriculum. A Special CCE ALIGNED Life-Skills Programme in Association with ViJyoti is being implemented for all classes with these modules.

With our specially designed Life-Skills programme in association with VIJYOTI, we aim to enable the young minds to learn how to think and discipline emotions – an area neglected in worldwide education system. We go beyond the confines of narrow learning and aim for the essential learning outcomes for professional success, personal development and responsible citizenship:

Peer learning from educators in other countries, exchange of best practices through interaction with foreign delegates and invitees, participation in state, national and international, teacher specific competitions and even attending empowering meditation camps are part of the continuing growth and development process.

Special Remedial Teaching Programme

Adopt A Child Programme

It’s been a highly result-oriented scheme at DLPS under which Each Teacher adopts at least ONE academically poor/weak child. Throughout the session, the teacher assists the child in various ways like- giving/arranging extra classes, completion of the notebooks, revision of the class work, class behavior, attendance and academic record. She notes and observes the improvements made in the child and works in coordination with other teachers towards the child’s growth. The teachers also conduct Personal Home Visits to students’ homes.

Remedial Sessions Every Week

The school conducts integrated remedial classes for the academically weak children EVERY SATURDAY 12 pm to 2 pm. During these sessions, the teachers try to reach out to their problems and render a personal touch. The slow learners get a chance to pick up the covered syllabus and solve their problems.

Counseling Sessions In Close Tie-ups With IHBAS

The school facilitates students with THREE full time counselors. These counselors provide concrete suggestions for each child and help them overcome their specific learning disabilities working in close tie-ups with IHBAS-Institute of Human Behavior & Allied Sciences. Many workshops are also organized for children suffering from SLDs like Dyslexia, Dyscalculia and more. Workshops for parents are also organized from time to time.

Consecutive Assessment Record

A consecutive assessment record is maintained by the concerned teacher which is registered with the school Coordinators as well. The Coordinator makes sure that these children are regular with their work and are able to cope up with the studies. She maintains the Cumulative Record of these children to mark the growth of these children. This affords a larger focus on each child’s progress and output.
