Mom and Me’ is our initiative to help the child take his first step out into the world under the care of his mother. The mother comes along and participates in all that the child is going to do in the new environment which eases his foray into the new world under the umbrella of security and comfort. Here the mother and child play, eat, build blocks, learn new sounds and enjoy new stories together with curiosity and enthusiasm. The mother views the world as a child and the child learns to adapt to the adult’s world. The bonding is enhanced and the nurture is aware and fruitful in a specially created environment fitting the developmental needs.
A safe environment, rich with opportunities for your child to explore, learn and grow. Our playgroup program is designed to help the child’s transition from home to school. It assists the child in getting accustomed to a structured, stimulating environment of learning and play. It builds on his skill sets and works towards crafting play and learning that will enhance his growth. A child’s first two years are critical for the development of the brain and for language development. During this period, the child’s life experience plays a fundamental role in the “hard-wiring” of the brain, laying the foundation for all intellectual and emotional development to follow. From birth, children are busy, active learners, immediately investigating the sights, sounds, and feel of the world. They are sensori-motor beings and explore the world with their senses when developing motor skills. Long before they understand a concept like "under" or "far" with their minds, their bodies are learning to navigate the up and down, over and under of the physical world: their perceptions are sorting out sizes, colours, and shapes. The teachers take the child through a journey of singing, dancing, play and body movements. The themes develop the child’s cognitive functions, grasping power, motor and social skills and build his confidence and self-esteem.
An exciting world where children can develop their independence, discover new objects and explore their powers to communicate. A child’s third year is a time of huge change as they are moving from the total dependence of babyhood to the more independent, mobile world of preschoolers. At this age children are exploring their powers to communicate, to move purposely, to assert their independence and individuality, and to control their important bodily functions. We at Toddler House provide the child with an environment that will jump-start the developmental process. Our Staff understands the frequent changes in moods, interests, and capabilities and provides calm, consistent care and supportive teaching. This program helps the child develop his latent creative, language and maths skills.
G D Goenka Toddler House curriculum is scientifically developed through research and development by psychologists and the best child specialists who understand the stages of development and developmental milestones. It is aimed at creating a vibrant, joyous and stimulating learning experience for the child. At Toddler House, we believe in giving every child the space and time they need to learn new things and provide an environment where each child, with their unique personality can blossom. Our International curriculum provides the right inputs to help the children grow holistically into caring individuals. It equips them to make the right choices in life and grow up to be responsible global citizens.
At Toddler House, the main aim of early years education is not explicitly “education” in the formal sense but also the promotion of the health and wellbeing of every child. Preschool doesn’t mean we focus on preparing children for school academically,alone. The main goal is to make sure that the children are happy and responsible individuals. The “joy of learning”through play, language enrichment and communication are the base of our pedagogy. To ensure this, we have incorporated Jolly Phonics, Howard Gardner's theory on multiple intelligences and Friedrich Froebel’s play methods to achieve the highest potential of the child in any environment and space through activities based on all aspects of intelligence and personality.
