Toddle town is welcoming pre-schoolers to experience the First of its Kind Pretend Play Themed Activity & Learning Centre in India
Young children learn by imagining and doing. Have you ever watched your child pick up a remote control and pretend it is a car, or hop a doll as if it were a person ? Your child is using an object to represent something else while giving it action and motion. But this pretend play is not as simple as it may seem. The process of pretending builds skills in many essential developmental areas including
Kids can do a wonderful imitation of their mother, father and the teacher. Pretend Play helps your child understand the power of language. In a Pretend-Play themed Playschool, a child gets the opportunity to pretend playing with other children, he/she learns that words give her/him the means to reenact a scene or describe a story. This process helps your child to make the connection between speaking and writing skills.
Knowing good moral values such as kindness, humility, courage, empathy and compassion at an early age builds a child’s character. It forms the very core of their being and becomes a foundation of their moral beliefs. This is why it’s essential to start teaching them moral values while they’re still in the Preschool. Those values mold them to become the person you want them to be.
Play-based preschool programs are curated on the individual child and their interests.
As children interact with the world around them, especially in ways that inspire their creativity and critical thinking skills, they learn to become effective problem solvers. From planting seeds in the Playschool garden, to recycling the papers for crafts, to reading about others’ joys and pitfalls, they see cause and effect, and begin to notice both the patterns around them, and the consequences of actions, both simple and complex.
They see connections between themselves and their surroundings, and the lives of those around them. They begin to predict outcomes, and start to consider a variety of choices and actions. These simple, but impactful, exercises are opportunities that guided, play-based learning present as a way of constantly and consistently developing the critical thinking skills of preschoolers, and lay the foundation for strong future problem solvers!
We all want our children to be happy and successful.
Part of this requires giving them the best educational start in life. What better way to do this than offering them an education that is engaging, meaningful and inspiring ?
Theme-based learning is so much fun for children! They are learning about topics that are meaningful and relevant to their own lives. This creates what is known as ‘intrinsic motivation’; in other words, children learn because they want to learn, not because they have to learn.
When children want to learn, the quality of their learning is unquestionably superior.
Theme-based learning also requires hands-on approaches, including project-based learning, which makes it an active approach to learning – again, enhancing the level of engagement.
