To us, early learning goes well beyond childhood. We believe, there is an opportunity to learn the basics of life at every stage. The Toddler programme is specially designed to accommodate the children, no matter what stage of development they are at.
How do you know that your child is ready for certain challenges? Our teachers are trained to recognize key signs in your toddler’s behaviour and have devised different teaching methodologies to make learning easy and interesting. The Toddlers begin the day with morning assembly everyday. The school prayer is followed by oral interaction whereby children, along with the teacher, recite rhymes with actions, dance, listen to stories etc… This regime is followed by nature walk, yoga and activity based learning like beading, scribbling, colouring and playing with blocks. All the basic colours, shapes, alphabet, numbers etc. are taught through different activities. The main focus is on the language and gross motor development of the child.
The various learning and play materials are arranged into clear and distinct interest areas.
- Gross Motor Play includes a number of stuffed toys, swings and slides
- Fine Motor Play includes action and reaction toys, puzzles and stacking objects.
- Imagination and Quiet Play includes doll items, kitchen sets, play food and other play items.
- Language Development includes audio-visual aided learning.
- Music and Dance through CD players, musical instruments and puppet show.
- Creative Art and Exploration through colouring, pasting, tearing and nature walk.
Pre Nursery Programme
Watching a two and a half year old can be fun but exhaustive, children on this age group are filled with energy and curiosity about the world and a new sense of increasing independence. They undergo rapid development in many areas and crave for attention.
Their day starts with shlok chanting of gayatri mantra and the school prayer. Singing rhymes withactions in groups, identifying body parts, colours and oral counting are parts of oral interaction.Other activities include story time, puppet show, dance, music splash pool etc. As children learn to communicate with those around them, their games become more group oriented and sophisticated. Games that encourage imagination such as dressing up, clay moulding, building blocks etc. help to develop a child’s creativity. Apart from the activities the basic focus is on recognition of alphabets, numbers and shapes. Children learn some basic science concepts and pre writing skills are introduced.
At this age children are capable of solving simple problems and puzzles and may even have learnt to recognize alphabets, numbers and basic concepts. Playing becomes more illustrative and creative, with jigsaws, flashcardsand plasticine, providing essential mental stimulations. Nursery is a structured class where children learn to write alphabets and numbers. Children are also able to recognize the hindi varnamala. In this class the children are well equipped with basic ICT skills.
