Philosophies and Philosophers


We find that the parental dilemma has only increased over the years in terms of the “philosophy” parents want to follow in their educational decision for the child. Choosing a school would be the easiest thing to do, if the decision was purely based on tangibles like the property, infrastructure or financials. It is the intangible, priceless underlying philosophy of the school that makes this decision making process very brutally tough.

Tattva is a holistic model that allows parents to dabble and explore multiple philosophies that have proved to be successful across decades, across geographies and most importantly, across cultures.

Children will take to the environment they are exposed to and we all know that all roads don’t lead to Rome when it comes to education. Tattva is designed to go hand in hand with Disha (Pedagogical Direction) so that the parents, children and teachers feel connected with the doing and being of Tapas on a day to day basis.

Here is a snapshot of the blended learning approach Tapas has adopted across some major / time tested educational philosophies:
