Frequently Asked Questions
What is Launchpad?
Launchpad is an Active After School Programme which aims to enrich scholastic, co-scholastic and life skills in children through fun and interactive activities.
What is Launchpad’s ideology?
Understanding child development theories and catering to the needs of children are central to Launchpad’s ideology. At Launchpad, we encourage active participation from each child by facilitating a healthy socio-emotional environment. Adding to this, every child is individually guided by some of the best-known mentors, who catalyze the overall development of the children by exposing them to a variety of skills, which are beyond the main activity.
Why should my child join Launchpad After School Programme?
Research has proved time and again that early years are the best time to lay a strong foundation of Brain Development in children. Therefore, it is an apt time to provide all kinds of stimulation to your children to allow their brain to make the right synaptic connections. Launchpad is the place where your children will get an exposure to a whole lot of activities, including painting, music, dance, theatre, tennis, phonics, golf, abacus, and Vedic Maths, aimed at enhancing their communication, logic, reasoning, gross motor skills and problem-solving abilities. All under a single roof, and in a safe and secure environment.
When do activities start? When do activities end?
After School Programme runs around the year. The programme spans over a duration of two hours every evening from 4 pm to 6 pm, once the children are back from school.
How is Launchpad different from other After School Programmes?
Launchpad is a carefully designed programme which is age specific (3 years-12 years). Hence, the curriculum has been designed to be age appropriate. However, each class comprises a mixed age group of children. This enables a better understanding among children, as they learn from each other during group tasks. In addition, all mentors have been carefully selected as a result of a dogmatic process, keeping in mind the uniqueness of the programme.
