Learning is an on-going process. Every occasion is a learning experience, every day provides opportunities to look and learn beyond the routine. Through this column I would like to share my learning experience on my Germany visit in May 2016.
I am thankful to the Sir Dietrich Brandis Foundation, Germany and also to the Indian School Society for giving me the opportunity. The main objective of the visit was to know about the working pattern of the schools as well as the administrative responsibilities of the principals in the country.
Firstly, a few lines on the school-level education system in Germany. Kindergarten (nursery school) education is for all children between one and six years of age. The focus of the pre-school level is mostly on the play-oriented forms of learning. After Kindergarten, school is compulsory for all children.
