Starting school can be a worrying time for both parents and children. It is important to talk about the school from an early age and to make clear that it is something to be excited about.
However, the first days at school are still likely to be, if nothing else, very exhausting for your child and this can lead to emotional outbursts. It is important to maintain interest in what your child is doing at school. Teachers will shower you with paintings and other work. Parents should show great interest in these signs of independent activity and lavish praise at your child’s efforts.
Once the child has settled down happily, our activities aim at developing the child, keeping in mind his/her development of language as well as physical development. The emphasis in the Kindergarten School is creative play. Play helps children weave together all the elements of life as they experience it. With creative play, children blossom and flourish. The activities that take place in class are based on children’s interests and ideas through drawing, painting, music, clay, paper, water, etc. Role play and imaginative play are also very important for a child’s development.
In Kindergarten II, the children are introduced to hand control exercises through dotted patterns, letters and numbers, always moving at their own pace. Children learn the alphabet and numbers.
Singing, story telling, self-expression, physical education and other organized activities, such as outings, parties, fun days and concerts are all part of the Kindergarten programme.
A number of after school activities are organized, including Art, Crafts, Drama, Dance and Gymnastics.
