For students in Kindergarten through Grade 4: E3Cube Curriculum
E3Cube or Entertainment, Education, and Elevation is an experiential curriculum developed in partnership with Shrimad Divine Touch, Mumbai. It aims at laying the foundation of character building in children. It also brings young minds closer to universal values, helps develop their emotional quotient, and gives them the tools and skills to understand, acknowledge, and manage emotions, and social relations.

The Wolf Dog Workshop parallels the story writing and storytelling experience of the creator of an internationally award-winning animated short film called Wolf Dog Tales. This unique program helps students develop critical and creative thinking skills while helping them understand value systems. The program was introduced as a pilot on popular demand from tGELF member schools and was well received.

Our SKILLD or Skilling and Knowhow Initiative for Lifelong Leadership Development curriculum was developed with the help of leading Indian academics, Harvard Graduate School of Education, and Columbia Teachers College.
