Educational System
Realising the crucial importance of the early childhood years a Pre School Education Council (PSEC) was constituted. All the Pre Schools run by any establishment have now been brought under AWES. It has taken the responsibility for Improvement & Standardization of Pre School Education in the Army. All the Pre School run by the Army establishment are now called Army Pre Primary School.

AWES along with a team of Eminent Educationists & in collaboration with National Council of Education, Research and Training has develop a Scientific & Sound Curriculum based on the Principles and Objectives of Early Childhood Education (ECE). The curriculum has been implemented in all the APPS across the country with a view to have uniform standards of Pre School Education in the Army.
Why Early Childhood Education (ECE)
ECE was included in the national policy of education in 1986 as the earliest stage of education.
The ECE curriculum is development oriented and not syllabus oriented i.e, the activities are planned
  according to maturational level of the child as well as his/her experiential level.
ECE is a child centered programme, which follows the play way and activity approach. Play provides children 
  with direct and concrete experiences which makes them an active participant in learning rather than a
  passive listener. We teach them “how to learn and not what to learn”.
ECE is a school readiness programme as it prepares the child with the necessary concepts, language and
  physical skills for learning of reading, writing and arithmetic in primary grades.
It is a programme that provides a stimulating playful environment for intellectual, language, socio-emotional
  and physical development of the child.
ECE is a programme, which focuses on the holistic development of the child. It does not focus on school 
  achievement. Hence the education provided in SAPPS is an education without fear, reward, punishment or comparison.
The Programme is ‘development oriented’ hence the teacher is able to identify any undue delays in the
  accomplishment of development milestones, thus identifying the special needs of children at an early stage.
The curriculum is child friendly, activity based and age appropriate. It fosters holistic growth by integrating
experiences which address all the six developmental domains namely,
Personal, social and emotional development. Language development.
Physical development. Cognitive development.
Development of Creative expression and aesthetic appreciation. Motor development.
A wide range of activities are included in the schedule. These are rhymes, story telling, dramatics, group projects, nature walks, outdoor play, indoor play with manipulative toys, sand, water & puppet play and regular outings to Zoo, dairy farm, aquarium etc. All major festivals and events are celebrated, to expose the children to our art and culture.
