Curriculum of Pitter Patter Preschool
In order to fit into the expected development of a specific age, we have combined the play way and Montessori Method. Our curriculum provides for the child to enjoy learning through play, fantasize and imagine through pretend plays, stories and songs. Our set of Early Practical Life (EPL) Activities helps develop fine motor eye-hand coordination and help them become independent. Theatre and circle time also help them become confident.
Activities for Children
Singing & Music
Children are encouraged to participate in both group and solo songs and rhymes; to identify the sounds of various musical instruments and learn via the media of song and enactment.
Language & Literacy
Learning self expression, listening to others, responding to stories, recognizing letters, reading and understanding pictorial books and writing their own names are areas that will be given great importance.
It is important that this subject be introduced in an easy and fun manner. Children will be taught simple concepts relating to shapes, sizes, comparision and quantities. They will also learn number sequences through the fun mediums of songs, games & books.
Children are usually fascinated with life around them. Knowledge aids fascination and here they will learn about animate and inanimate objects and how to make simple scientific observations and discoveries.
Children will be taught simple but important every day issues such as tying their laces, table manners and basic etiquette using simple words such as ’Thank you’ and ‘Sorry’ etc...
Motor Development Activities
Perhaps an activity that children love best – play. They will be encouraged to develop fine motor skills with fun activities such as clay modelling and solving simple puzzles. There will also be plenty of outdoor games and play in Pitter Patter’s beautiful, shaded little campus.
One of the best expressions of creativity, the children will have complete liberty for expressing themselves. There will be a variety of mediums – both traditional such as paint and crayons, as well as the unusual - such as learning to create with discarded materials. All with the intention of getting them to express ideas and feelings in a manner that is more process rather than product oriented.
Practical exposure helps children learn and understand concepts taught at school better. Pitter Patter gives children an opportunity to learn by seeing , feeling and doing, The children are taken to a vegetable mart, pet shop, post office, aquarium, nature walks etc... These Field trips are planned keeping in mind the theme, syllabus requirement and age of the child.
