At the heart of our vision is the belief that every child is unique and deserving of a high-quality education that meets their individual needs and interests. We are committed to providing a warm, inclusive, and stimulating environment where children can thrive and reach their full potential. To achieve this vision, we will continue to focus on building a strong foundation in social-emotional learning, cognitive development, and physical well-being. We will also seek out opportunities to incorporate more hands-on, experiential activities, such as cooking, gardening, and art projects, to provide a balance of structured and unstructured play. In addition to our regular program, we have also designed a variety of special events and activities for our children, including festival celebrations, field trips, personality development, and lots more. We believe that these enriching experiences help to create a sense of community and belonging within our preschool. We are also committed to continuously improving and evolving our program to meet the changing needs of our children and families. This will involve staying current with the latest research and best practices in early childhood education, as well as seeking out opportunities for professional development for our staff. We know that choosing a preschool for your child is a big decision, and we are grateful for the opportunity to be a part of your child's early learning journey. I am confident that with the support of our dedicated staff, engaged families, and community partners, we will be able to achieve our vision and provide an exceptional experience for every child at our preschool.

AGE GROUP - 18 MONTHS TO 24 MONTHS 'Early Birds’ 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 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 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 comprehensive, focused, and skill-based program. Continuous development of language skills and learning makes this program the perfect way to groom the little one for their big debut into full-time formal schooling The Kindergarten program of Toddler House prepares the child for primary school education. It facilitates the smooth transition from preschool to a structured learning environment of the formal school. It is designed to lay the pedagogical foundations that prepare every child to be ready to read: confidently equipped with the desire, vocabulary, and language-deciphering skills they have developed through experiences that are meaningful to them.
AGE GROUP - 3.5 YEARS TO 4.5 YEARS As children move out of toddlerhood and into the independence of the Preschool Years, the program for learning develops into a more structured pace of meaningful and purposeful learning where children are encouraged to approach the world with curiosity and with a positive disposition to learn. At this stage, children need confidence and the skills and desire to think for themselves, solve problems, work with others, communicate, and gain an increasing understanding of the world and how it works. It includes pre-writing, pre-reading, pre-maths, science, and social skills. These are taught in a natural and logical sequence; thereby encouraging the child to learn one step at a time.
AGE GROUP - 2.5 YEARS TO 3.5 YEARS 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.
AGE GROUP - 2 YEARS TO 2.5 YEARS Our Play-Group Program is designed to help the child 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 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. 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, colors, and shapes.
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. Our curriculum comprises activities that foster the child’s skills to work with others, play cooperatively, help others, have a sense of empathy, and be part of a team. It helps the child develop respect for everyone around, exhibit gratitude for a beautiful life, learn to forgive, extend love and compassion, enjoy the freedom to explore and express, celebrate the joy of existence, imbibe a sense of responsibility and thoughtfulness, and practise honesty in thoughts and actions.
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. Carefully organized play helps develop qualities such as attention span, perseverance, concentration and problem solving, which at the age of four are stronger predictors of academic success than the age at which a child learns to read. There is evidence that high-quality early years play-based learning enriches educational development Our thematic approach to teaching involves integrating all subject areas together under one theme. It crosses over subject lines and helps children relate basic academic skills to real-world ideas. Through meaningful activities, the themes connect the different learning domains such as Music, Arts, Physical Education and Health, Language and Literacy, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, and Value based Education.
