What is the correct Age to send my Child to School?
Children of this Generation are quite active even at 1 Year and very well follow instructions and try to Speak (of course it starts with just Sounds and Mono Syllable Words). Children start learning right from Birth and they are always learning irrespective of where they are.
BLOSSOMS believes the correct age for a child to start going to an organized Learning Environment is when they are able to walk independently, follow the instructions given and when they start
Is it true that the Children just Play at the School?
No. Children indulge in Activity based learning and various Developmental Activities (viz. Sensorial Development, Eye Hand Coordination, Concentration Development, Intellectual Development and other Activities). These activities involve working individually and in Teams with various Teaching Aids and Play Items making it appear as if the Children are Playing.
Indeed that is the essence of learning in a Play School. All the Teaching and Learning happens in a Play Way methodology. Children do not feel pressurized or burdened with this method of Teaching.
How effective is this kind of Learning?
As mentioned above, the Learning is all through Observing, Doing and Experiencing, which we at BLOSSOMS call ‘Hands-on-Learning’. ‘Hands-on-Learning’ helps your Child experience the challenges in Practical learning to retain for a longer period of time.
Experiential Learning is found to be one of the most effective means to gain and retain Knowledge. It enables your Child to Think, Improvise and Innovate.
What is the Curriculum?
BLOSSOMS follows an Integrated Curriculum derived from the Best of Varied Curricula across the world. Our Team of experts in Child Education has prepared the Curriculum after thorough research on Montessori, Waldorf, Seven Petal and Others.
The methodology of Teaching is Play Way.
What do you teach to a 1 ½ year Child?
Most of the learning in that age happens through Observation. We create an environment conducive to care free learning. Teachers focus on the Child’s basic Skills and Areas of Development like Sensorial, Multi Intelligence, Language, Motor and Socio Emotional.
Just to mention a few -
We use Clay Play, Lace and Beads, Coin Movement, Thread Exercises and many others for Fine Motor Development.
Leather, Cotton, Silk and Sand Paper Activities to develop a Child’s sense of Touch and to help understand the difference between Rough and Smooth Surfaces.
Containers or Bottles with different Sand in one, pebbles in one, water, marbles, etc in others and a matching set is set aside. Children are asked to first hear the sound by shaking one bottle and pick up a similar sounding bottle from the second set. This activity is used to improve a Child’s Aural (hearing) abilities.
Similarly there are thousands of Activities designed to help Children with Overall Development.
