India, December 2014. Playschool is not a play thing. When we intend to enrol the 'apple of our eye' in a play school it is a decision that needs some diligence in prospecting the proper kind of play school. Some of the best play schools of India have stringent regulations in the matters of safety and wellbeing of the children.
Not only do they provide a good environment for these children to blossom, they also provide a good platform for the kids to grow up to be intelligent students.
Overall development of the children is the second priority after safety. Developing speech skills, comprehending colors, shapes, and sizes are but the basics of any play school.
Classroom routines include reading, writing, and learning maths. Developing a good vocabulary is another important activity that helps them learn things faster and retaining them with good memory is equally vital.
The daily activities of a play school would be recognizing colors, taking directions, remembering sequences (first, second..), know the time, recognize emotions and many more..
Knowing in/out, hold/cold, first/last, soft/hard, empty/full and open/closed are essentials of brain growth in infants.
Parents should go through a list of preschools and play schools in India to get to know the various kind of facilities and activities they provide before joining their kids in any preschool.
The preschool names list would be essential to ascertain the best in terms of proximity, dedication of the teachers and the management policies of the preschool. Due enquiries should also be made by consulting the parents who have already joined their kids in play schools or preschools.
This done, parents are also suggested to spend some time at the preschool to physically see how they function.
Top nursery schools in India, ideally have a 1:13 ratio of teacher vs student.
The atmosphere should be peaceful, and should be positively reinforced. The toys should be accessible and in good condition.
The end result desired from pre schooling is that the children should attain the necessary skills at every developmental stage.
For example, at the age of three the child should be able to grab a pencil and draw symbolic figures. At the age of four they can identify at least three colors. And, at the age of six these kids can draw colorful images and like to talk to adults.
Overall, nursery schools or preschools should impart essential skills to children with a lot of playtime and fun.
