The program ensures that children learn to read and write adeptly as they graduate to the next level of learning. We make the child real thinkers who taste a bit of independence in their own way. They decide what they want to draw, when they want to visit the washroom and what to make with their toys. This sort of independence teaches them how to make the right choices. They are also taught how to work well within a group through listening, sharing and cooperation. Our caring and experienced Teachers are dedicated to provide a rich and nurturing environment that will prepare the child to follow a formal curriculum.
A day at Petals Play School
Petals Facilitator stands with puppet in hand to welcome our little Petalians at the gate. Each Petalian is welcomed with a smile to make them feel connected and special. Petalians choose the way to enter the classroom through high five, dance, hug, shake hands etc. This creates fun in the class.
Our Petalians start their day with circle time to develop social interaction and positive relationships among peer group. It improvises listening skills, fine motor skills and gross motor skills. Circle Time motivates Petalians to attend school daily. During circle time, our Petalians do meditation activity along with tongue twister and concept clearance.
Petals follow a theme-based program throughout the year. Every month there is one theme undertaken around which our curriculum revolves. Our Petalians comprehend learning through the concepts.
At Petals, rhymes are done with music and dance to enhance musical skills. Petalians enjoy this session with their facilitators, props and peer group.
Montessori Time/Reading Time
During this time our Petalians are divided into groups. Some groups are involved with Learning Equipment’s and other groups are immersed with books in the library area. Petalians are allowed to pick up learning equipment/book of their own choice while facilitator moves individually to each child and put up thought provoking questions to raise curiosity and inquisitiveness towards learning.
Petalians are involved in an activity which can be individual or in group. The activity is related to the theme of the month and each Petalian is encouraged to perform the activity independently.
In Petals Playgroup program, every week a worksheet is done by our Petalians. Worksheet encourages thinking skills and focus retention of our Petalians.
Sports is a focus area when it comes to physical development of the Petalians and we ensure they simply enjoy their kicks, punches, races and swings. Natural growth occurs best when children have lots of fun. And, all that fun happens in our most colourful play area, park and garden. This way we also enhance the gross motor skills of the Petalians.
This is the time to revise the concept done on that day. Our Facilitators put up questions based on what is been done throughout the day. They are praised and appreciated in the form of stars and smileys that keeps them motivated and happy.
Petalians hang their bags, clean their faces and use the washroom before leaving for the day. They wave good bye to their friends and facilitators with the promise to meet the next day.
