Taking a holistic approach to child development means understanding that children's physical, personal, social, emotional and spiritual health are all interconnected. By making this assumption, practitioners focus on the overall development of the child rather than just the cognitive aspects of learning.

For example, if one child lacks the physical ability to use a spoon while other children can, their emotional development may be affected by a lack of independence and self-esteem at mealtimes. Likewise, if a child is very shy and lacks social development, this may hinder the development of language skills if they are unable to practice language skills in front of other children.

Matippu understands the requirements and concerns of parents and therefore believes in giving children a value-based education. Our goal is for students to be physically strong, mentally alert and spiritually uplifted. We practice integrated learning and well-rounded development to ensure that students receive their education while developing life skills, participating in sports and reaching their full potential. We pride ourselves on being at the forefront of emphasizing, practicing and encouraging Indian values, spirit and traditions while nurturing future global citizens.

Holistic education is designed to prepare students for the challenges of life and academics. Holistic education considers it important for young people to learn:

  • • About themselves.
  • • About healthy relationships and prosocial behaviour.
  • • Social development.
  • • Emotional development.
  • • Elasticity.

A traditional classroom has rows of desks and chairs. Students sit inside and passively listen to the information the teacher gives them. They can only speak with the teacher's permission. In a holistic classroom, students arrange classes in many different ways depending on what they will learn. They may sit in a three- or four-seat pod for group discussions. They may be working at desks where laboratory experiments or art projects are being held. There is a lot of noise as students share their thoughts and findings. These events really appeal to them.
