HANDLE WITH LOVE “THE NUANCES OF PRE-PRIMARY EDUCATION”
Dated: 04 November 2023
Pre schoolers are very young learners who have ventured out of their comfort zone for the first time and their parents are equally anxious leaving their little ones in a new atmosphere, despite having taken a well researched decision.
If we scratch the surface a little deeper, Pre- Primary education is really about building trust. The compassion and patience that is exhibited by the teachers in handling these little ones goes a long way in strengthening the bond between the school and the parents.
The Pre- Primary teaching at DPS Kanpur recognizes play way method as a driving force and the entire learning revolves around structured activities consisting of free play, role play, art, music and dance and story sessions to motivate the child in a friendly and pressure free environment.
The curriculum at DPS Kanpur incorporates scientifically designed games, toys and technology which cultivate essential cognitive, social and emotional skills and provides a sturdy base for future academic achievement.
Children are often unable to express themselves and as such keeping in touch with the parents is an essential part of the teacher’s ethical responsibility. It needs to be done regularly, in the best interest of the child. It is at this level that the parents desire to get a feedback of the child on a daily basis. They are even motivated to drop and pick up the child everyday so as to be aware of the child’s daily activities in the school.
And finally, let these interesting words by French Rogers soak in.
“Play is often talked about as if it were a relief from serious learning but for children play is serious learning. Play is really the work of childhood.”
