“Children must be taught how to think and not what to think.”
The goal of early childhood education should be to activate the child’s own natural desire to learn piquing, critical thinking leading to creativity. The Creative Corner is the place where the students are encouraged to unleash their creativity and focus fully on the learning process maintaining self-discipline. Introduction to practical life activities make this place full of energy. These activities help the children develop their fine motor skills, eye-hand coordination, and concentration through order. This method of teaching is implemented at Dharav High School, Jaipur and the learning by doing experience sows the seeds of inquisitiveness in our children that they are always eager to explore new avenues by themselves.

Junior Science Lab
An effective teaching and learning of science involve a perpetual state of show and tell. The Junior Science Lab at Dharav High School, Jaipur, serves this purpose, as here the students get to work collaboratively to find answers to their questions. The students learn various scientific phenomena and are able to retain the concepts for a longer period of time as learning is the outcome of their own experiences. 'Learning by Doing' involves making careful observations and an analysis of gathered evidences and data. Making hypothesis, then finding empirical evidence to prove it right or wrong become a set rule for the students and thus scientific temperament is ignited in the early creators and inventors.
