A Fantasy World for the Little Angels
Children are inquisitive by nature; they love to learn by exploring. They enjoy learning by doing. The learning is permanent and everlasting if it involves all the five senses viz. Smell, taste, touch, hear and see. Hence the educational atmosphere should give ample opportunities to exploit all the five senses of the child in teaching- learning process. During the early years, children should get such manipulative toys and puzzles, which give wings to their creativity and imagination. Forcing a child to write at such tender years is a strict “no, no,” rather they should be given ample opportunities to scribble freely using all the colours from the palette. Stories are an effective tool to imbibe the basic values and to make the toddlers learn basic concepts in an innovative and interesting manner. It also helps in enhancing their language skills by widening the vocabulary. Rhymes also help children to learn basic concepts in a musical, fun-filled manner.
Essentials of an ideal preschool:
A preschool should in the first place have a warm and conducive environment for a healthy all round development. The class strength should be low to ensure every child gets individual attention. The preschool should have a spacious play area and ideally a garden blossoming with colourful and vibrant flowers. The basic equipment should include swings, slides, sea-saw, toys, puzzles, colours, clay, crayons; all in bright colours.
The environment should be as lively as possible; with walls and furniture; painted with cartoons, fruits, vegetable etc. The idea is that the more the child visualises the objects; the more he can relate with it. Even the classrooms can be decorated with a particular theme such as “universe”, or “sea beach,” to make the child visualise the objects related with them. Learning should be through audio-visual aids such as LCD, tape recorders, finger puppets, puppets, models etc.; to make the learning interesting and everlasting.
