Welcome to the Maa Krupa Gujarati School
At Maa Krupa Gujarati School we teach Gujarati to children and adults of all ages and abilities.
The school is run by parents of children at the school. It is supported by the Maa Krupa Foundation (UK) and is open to all. Our students come from all over London and the surrounding areas. Our teachers are qualified and fully trained.
Our classes start from Reception and go through to GCSE and beyond. The curriculum is geared to teach Gujarati to people whose first language may not be Gujarati and may only have had limited exposure to Gujarati elsewhere. Musical instrument classes such as harmonium and tabla teach additional cultural skills. Our classes help the children keep touch with the rich heritage that comes from Gujarat.
The teaching ensures students develop a strong foundation in the language. We want our students to reach their full potential in communicating orally as well as reading and writing in Gujarati.
The school works in partnership with parents. It is essential that parents encourage their children to speak in multiple languages regularly.
We encourage parents to speak with the children on Gujarati and provide them with ample opportunities to practice Gujarati in different settings
We run a very successful adult Gujarati class. Our adult students prove it is never too late to learn the language.
So, while your children spend the Sunday morning learning Gujarati, join us in the adult class and learn with us at the same time.
Research has shown that teaching children multiple languages helps them to think in new and different ways then they might if they only spoke one language.
Children who have a solid foundation in a second language to English develop stronger literacy abilities in other languages and show improved cognitive skills.
Learning more than one language helps children to develop confidence, self-esteem and their unique identity within a multicultural society. Bilingualism assists the child’s general intellectual and conceptual development.
We also need to ensure that the children learn the communications skills necessary to retain our language for coming generations
