SETTLING IN TIME

Circle Time
We start the day with the short circle time just long enough for a good morning song and a chat on what they have done on the previous day. We add the weather, show and tell and story time dependent on how focus the preschoolers are, on that particular day.

Daily routine

The routines of nappy changing, meal time, nap time etc. are an opportunity to help the babies to develop emotionally. For example, a nappy change provides the child with a one-to-one situation with their care taker. The meal time provides an opportunity to develop their self-help skills such as sitting at a table feeding themselves.

Music and Movement

Singing song is a powerful way to practice language. Songs with motion helps children practice fine motor coordination. Doing the finger motion of the song like “the incy vincy” helps children practice their hands and finger control- A skill necessary for writing and handling small objects. Listening to music can help children learn about emotions. Music can also be soothing and comforting.

Music and movements are enjoyable and voluntary and children love to participate and enjoy the experience. Children’s early experiences with movement activities influence their later knowledge.

Books and Toys

The colourful books and toys stimulate the children’s senses i.e. sounds, sight and touch. The toys and books also help to develop their co-ordination and curiosity i.e. moving the animal’s arms, legs, heads, turning pages etc. Reading to the children from books and showing them flash cards encourage language and cognitive skills.

Table Top Activity

Developing their fine manipulative skills through table top activities are a very enjoyable experience for the children. Jig Saws, Mega Sketchers, Building Blocks, Shape Sorts etc. encourage the child to take turns and share, intellectual and language skills.

Why Sensory is important?

We know that young children are oriented toward sensory experiences. From birth, children have learned about the world by touching, tasting, smelling, seeing, and hearing. Sensory play also contributes in crucial ways to brain development. Think of it as “food for the brain.” Stimulating the senses sends signals to children’s brains that help to strengthen neural pathways important for all types of learning. For example, as children explore sensory materials, they develop their sense of touch, which lays the foundation for learning other skills, such as identifying objects by touch, and using fine-motor muscles. The materials children work with at the sand and water table have many sensory attributes — they may be warm or cool, wet or dry, rough or smooth, hard or soft, textured or slimy. Discovering and differentiating these characteristics is a first step in classification, or sorting — an important part of preschoolers’ science learning and discovery

Littlehands Teachers

I would like to stop-by and congratulate Little hands to have wonderful teachers.
You all send a positive vibe while discussing child's routine @LHS to parents. We as a parent are satisfied, while Neil enjoy his rest of the day in your school.

Additionally, I would like to appreciate Sonam ma'am (Neil's current class teacher). We have noted a significant improvement on his part. Neil has also extended his likening thoughts about Ms.Sonam, to us (like she is very good, she plays with him, she helps him tie shoe laces, etc).

Quoting a quote, "Those who educate children well are more to be honored than parents".
