The landscape of primary and high school education in India is moving from a 'one-size-fits-all' education to one that promotes diversity and learner empowerment. In view of these positive changes, there is need to quickly change the way we design the early childhood learning experiences.
Successful implementation and control of change rely on strong and effective leadership and a clear school vision. The school management is committed to change and learning. We are among the lead educational group with a legacy of 30 plus years in education and the experience of adapting to the governmental policy changes and the changes in the teaching - learning environment across the world, offering sustainable growth. We have grown from one school with 184 children in 1984 to 30 plus schools with over 60,000 children graduating from our schools and colleges across Tamil Nadu.
Realising the need for qualitative interventions in Early Childhood Education, Velammal has already begun working on bringing in reforms in this level. Velammal Juniors has been established with the aim of breaking grounds in the new paradigms of learning for the whole group in the Early Childhood segment with research and training. Velammal Juniors is an initiative of the Velammal Educational Network that carries forward a rich legacy of educational excellence under the aegis of which were established reputed Engineering and Medical Institutions, K-12 International, CBSE and State syllabi schools. Velammal Juniors owes its foundation and value system to the lineage of the group of premiere institutions it belongs to.
