Arise ?n? Shine International Pre-school is established in 2003 to provide a unified program with Indian and Western system for Asian and American children in North America to prepare them to meet global standards and expectations. This year we launched our first international school in India. The activities at Arise 'n' Shine were carefully researched and designed by parents and teachers with practical approach for child development from real life problem solving, creative thinking and exploration. Our philosophy is based upon the following set of principles in child development. Children must have some control over the direction of their learning. Children must be able to learn through experiences of touching, moving, listening, seeing, and hearing. Children have a relationship with other children and with material items in the world that children must be allowed to explore and Children must have endless ways and opportunities to express themselves.
