A CBSE Based Affiliated School
Elementary education lays the foundation of a child's knowledge, education, skills and also his behavior creating a formidable path for his success and glory. We prefer Montessori trained teachers for this section. The school tries to follow the former system as it allows the children to develop creativity, problem solving techniques, critical thinking and time management skills to contribute to the society and environment and become fulfilled persons in their particular time. The basic idea is built upon the fact that the children should develop and think differently and the school follows its own method to nurture them. We instill a desire to learn and provide things and feed that desire. Basically, hands on approach to learning. We include the usage of 5 senses – kinetic movement, spatial refinement, small and gross motor skills, cooperation and concrete knowledge that leads to later abstraction.
What is a KBS Academy
What is the concept of KBS Play Group Academy ? A play school is a place where around 10-20 children spend 1-2 hours each day under the supervision of a couple of teachers. "The supervisor-child ratio should ideally be around 1:10" says Dr.
She believes that play schools have a lot to offer, and that the play schools should not be aimed at developing academic skills like reading and writing. She also says there should be no set goals or any stress on performance; the focus should be on the sensory-motor development and the social development of the child. She is very much an advocate of play schools since they develop age-appropriate behaviour at the right time.
Benefits of play school: Learning
Most parents give their children plenty of attention in terms of looking after their basic needs and showering them with toys to entertain them. In play schools, however, children are provided with the 'right' toys, i.e. those appropriate to their stage of development. Also, their play is guided so that it becomes a learning experience. The ideas is that children should transfer play behaviours such as feeding a doll, changing its clothes, etc. to themselves, and thus develop self-help skills. The thinking is that if a child can go through the motions of feeding a doll, it will soon learn to feed itself.
Play schools also teach children to recognize their own possessions. Soon a child will learn to identify his school bag, learn the mealtime routine that involves opening a lunchbox, folding a napkin and putting everything back after the meal is over and so on. Now this may not seem like a great achievement, but by the standards of toddler behaviour, it is. Children are not born with these skills, they have to develop them. And this is where the play school steps in to help parents out. Another advantage Dr. Mehrotra pointed out is that a child's language skills develop faster as they interact with many children of their own age and a little older.
Benefits of play school: Meeting other Parents
Children are not the only ones who benefit from play schools. They provide parents with an external support system in terms of enhancing the child's developmental skills. In addition, parents get an opportunity to interact with other parents and keep in touch with different approaches to parenting. Parents also have a chance to observe other children and thus have a point of reference for judging their own child's behaviour. Parents can approach the trained supervisors for advice if they are facing any problems with their child at home. In other words, play schools widen parenting horizons.
Are play schools a necessity?
Many parents feel that all these skills will develop in their children any way, maybe not as quickly as with play school experience, but then what's the hurry? Sonea Vasunia did not feel the need to put either of her daughters into a play school. She says, "I think play schools are just money-making schemes that are convenient places for working mothers to keep their children for a few hours a day. I feel that children are under so much pressure today that there is no need to channelize even their free time." She feels that they should be allowed to enjoy their time the way that they like. In her opinion, if a mother is a housewife and spends enough time with her children, there is no need for a play school. What about separation anxiety? Mrs. Vasunia feels that this can easily be overcome if mothers were permitted to sit in the classrooms for the first few days of nursery school just to ease their children into the school routine.
