How important is pre-schooling
Education is an integral part of a human’s life cycle. So it has to be carefully scrutinized and selected because education helps us becoming what we ultimately become. So it has to be the first milestone in one’s life, the one which gives us a perfectly balanced human being be it physically, emotionally and psychologically. An education which makes our formative years to take a concrete shape which helps us to achieve impossible and unimaginable in the years to come. You may be wondering how it can be possible? I can share some tips with my own experience of pre-schooling my kids so you can differentiate.
With my first born, i was this naive new mommy of twenty two years who knew nothing about upbringing a child, forget schooling. with no-one to help in reality and only so-called well-wishers giving random advises, i tried to work according to them! and here i got mixed results wherein one suggestion was either overlapping the other or simply contradicting it. For a couple of years i followed it and left it as soon as i realized it is doing more damage than constructing the future of my little one. The biggest mistake i did was to admit my boy in to a pre-school near my house. For keeping my family, in-laws, friends happy, my only guiding factor to decide a pre-school was distance which was too near my house. I could see it from my balcony. I didn’t enquired about the other aspects of pre-school education. I can now term myself as an unaware mother but the fact remains that as mothers, our major decisions are influenced by peer-pressure.
With my daughter, i was this aware mom who didn’t wanted to repeat the mistakes committed before! I scanned major pre-schools with in the radius of up to 10 kilometers near my house because this time i wanted the best for my kid. The major points to take care this time were kept in mind and the hunting began. Luckily i found Klay Playschool which had all the ingredients of the perfect pre-school i was looking for. Let me divide the points for your convenience and what i found in my vision school.
a. Child care and safety– The major tension of being a second time mom was that i was aware how kids are prone to careless attitude of the staff if the management doesn’t have a vision to run a school and is not strict with abiding the guidelines laid for the staff. Naturally, my first preference was to meet the management and get to know their ideologies of education. With my son, i have seen people running the school as a business so i wanted to double check if the management has that love for imparting education which i luckily found with Klay Playschool. I personally met the management once by all alone and once with my husband to clear out as many queries i had. I was amazed to find them answering them so patiently and elaborately. I decided when i was done!
b. teacher student maid ratio– I was always vary of teacher student and maid ratio because just to save some money, some playschools put kids at dis-ease and stuff more and more kids to be accommodated by one teacher only. And with the small kids, it results in chaos where the teacher is unable to handle kids physically and their learning part also suffers. With Klay Playschool, they elaborated on why they keep on the tradition of keeping student-teacher-maid ratio to 10:1:1. So, i was convinced with their policy. In addition, just to affirm, they have live CCTV cameras installed along with voice feature which can be accessed anytime live. A great feature for panicky parents like me! I decided when i was done!
c. healthy meal– My daughter is a finicky eater and is very choosy about the food she blesses her mouth with. So the real issue was to give her real time atmosphere so that she at least tries for self-feed. Klay management assured me that they serve food in such fun ways that kids eat that and majorly, kids eat when they see other kids eating by themselves. They also showed me some clippings of kids younger than my daughter feeding themselves, so i was relieved. I decided when i was done!
d. mental age appropriate appropriate curriculum– Now comes the most cumbersome part! As a parents, its horrible to even think that such a small kid will be taught! Kids always remain kids for us however they grow because we are Indian parents and we love that. So after scrutinizing with mom’s parameters, i zeroed in on the curriculum. The curriculum is more of activity based conceptual learning where kids learn so much but in a play way and it never puts pressure on them. I decided when i was done!
e. The infant section– Though i have heard many preschools offering to keep your six-month old infant but the system with Klay Preschool was different. They have allotted a separate segment for infants only with trained maids, child friendly material and toys, non-toxic mats. The best part is that they have a certified pediatric nurse for infant section, impressed? More to come! I decided when i was done!
They have many additional features also. They have settling time from one week to settle newly admitted kids so that they get familiar with the surroundings, staff and teachers. They have segregated story section, library, music and movement room, activity room which are alternatively used for different activities planned according to their daily planner.I was amazed with the sports flooring they have in their music and movements room.
