The children at Adra preschool start here with the 5 great stories. The learning happens with meaningful context and they happen through several mediums and activities and not just one source like a text book. Field trips, physical activities, sports, team thinking are integrated into these, and not done in a siloed manner in bits and pieces.
The children will have choices and can pursue their interests at greater depths. They will get to know the various aspects of Language, Mathematics, ‘The World of Plants’ ( Botany), ‘The World of Animals’ (Zoology), ‘The world of Man’ (Anthropology and History), The Visual Arts, Music and ‘The World Itself’ (Human and Physical Geography). One subject overlaps and flows into others as in real life and the Adra preschool in bangalore primary environment, materials and the certified teachers work as catalyst in the transformation in the children.
True development in the children happens when we allow them space to make mistakes and ability to learn from it, relating to other members in the society – school, neighbors, families leading to more balanced emotional development. Culturally the children develop grace and curtesy and social niceties. They are involved in various events and learn the significance and historical importance of festivals.
The children at adra preschool in bangalore will develop a greater sensitivity and absorption to spoken language. This could also be a time to introduce and very slowly use another language only on an informal basis at home.
Our toddler program in the preschool campus is equipped with scientifically designed materials based on the montessori philosophy and method. Here the adra children will be exposed to an enriching classroom facility. The preschool in kasturi nagar and horamavu is equipped with play materials that will enhance their sensory experiences with textured objects, water, clay, smell of flowers, food, differentiating sizes, and sound.
As the children learn to speak in phrases, the adra preschool mentors encourage this through various language materials/activities like objects, books, story narration, general speaking. The language is also enhanced by singing songs, story narration from large picture books, listening – ability to follow verbal instructions.
During this phase the children also enjoy basic creative work like cutting and gluing papers, using crayons, colour chalks.
Physical activities are included as part of all the above, as it is integral for the development of the gross motor skills. At our preschool in kasturinagar and horamavu we have vast space with greenery, fruit trees where children can engage in various activities outdoor with nature including gardening activities.
We establish a simple daily routine with flexibility to have some sense of orderliness and consistency in what the children can expect, so that they feel secure. For example the meal time is a wonderful opportunity to show grace and sharing. Among all these there are “quiet corners” where if the child wants to have some time for herself with a book or a play material that can use it.
