‘The formative steps that formulate interest in learning…’
The 'Play School', an exclusive Kindergarten wing, at Sister Nivedita deserves a special mention.
Housed in well ventilated and well equipped classrooms the Play School is open for children starting from the age of two years three months. The classrooms are designed and set up to encourage the child to develop and maintain confidence and a sense of self worth. The school is dedicated to the provision of a challenging, learning environment that is child-centred and well balanced. We aim to develop the 'Complete Child' to the fullness of his or her potential.
The teachers at the Play School help children acquire basic skills essential for their continuing education. Emphasis is on teaching in small groups where children are given the individual care and attention necessary to learn. The school has up-to-date, safe, and colourful educational toys to stimulate learning. In the Play School the time is divided into several activities, all designed to stimulate and develop the child's interests. Children have the opportunity to join in free play (blocks, puzzles, cars, pictures, etc.), story-telling and enacting, music, craft, cooking, and are given ample time to further develop their oral, creative and academic skills. Also concept based teaching is enabled through themes like rainy day, science day, market day, road safety, first-aid, gardening, fruits and vegetables as well as political and geographical info, field trips, yoga, meditation, aerobics, and sloka chanting among others.
The curriculum is based on 'themes of interest' to the young child. These are incorporated into their activities through roll craft, games and paper work. As the child moves from class to class he is introduced to new themes and concepts such as colours, shapes and numbers, my family, people in my neighbourhood, planting, water, fire, safety and many more. When the children come out of kindergarten age they are ready for a longer, more structured day. Children in the kindergarten classes follow the English curriculum in which they are taught the alphabet, basics of addition and subtraction, reading, writing, pencil control, along with craft and theme work.
Everything that Children need
Our staff is highly qualified, experienced and trained to educate and supervise the tiny-tots in large and small groups. They take motherly care of the children and make them perfectly comfortable in a homely environment. Periodic interaction with parents helps to keep them informed about the child’s progress.
The Play School has an exclusive area with convenient space for the kids to play and learn. The spacious play ground, activity hall and play equipments induce the learning in children while they play. Practical activities are held to enrich the vocabulary and to kindle the scientific temper in the children. This enhances the interest of the children for indoor and outdoor activities. The Play School children also have audio/video sessions, presentations through multimedia and CD’s for better understanding.
