Five Reasons Why Preschool is Good for Your Child! Preschool is where a lifelong journey of learning begins for children. It is their first step on the path of learning. The education provided at preschool can help children develop. Research shows that children who attend preschool are most likely to have long term educational success, attend high school and a better working life later when they grow up. Preschool gives children the foundation for academic as well as social learning which helps them throughout their life. To narrow it down and keep it simple and short, the preschool will only help your child in multiple ways. Preschool takes care of the physical, emotional, cognitive, mental as well as social development of the child. It focuses on the holistic development of children. It is for this reason that various educationists stress on the importance of sending a child to preschool. The curriculum of a preschool is developed, taking into consideration all the basics children need to learn while adding an element of fun to make it interesting for children. All the activities are age-appropriate, according to the needs of the children, having the interests and betterment of children at the core. One such preschool is Shanti Juniors where stimulating environment and culturally appropriate curricular programs are thoughtfully designed to foster the holistic development of children. They make children understand the basics step by step so that their learning foundation becomes strong. They teach them in a manner that they become torchbearers in society. In Shanti Juniors preschool, the time table is prepared in a manner so that children have ample time for unstructured and unadulterated playtime. Playtime is important for children as it leads to the enhancement of the gross as well as the fine motor skills of the child. Here are 5 reasons why preschool is beneficial for your child: 1. Emotional and Social Development In preschool, children learn behaviour management. They learn how to eat, how to share and take turns. They slowly become ready for the outside world. They learn about waiting and patience and begin following a schedule without knowing they are following one. Preschool provides an environment for children to explore, gain a sense of self, play with classmates, and build self-confidence. 2. Leads to the Development of Motor Skills Motor skills are a set of actions involving the movement of muscles to perform a particular act. It involves the use of the muscles of hands to do activities like cutting a piece of paper, opening a water bottle, or using a pencil, etc. Children are engaged in various activities that would help them in developing motor skills significantly. 3. Children Learn How to be Independent At preschool, they are not surrounded by parents, relatives, guardians or caretakers. There are two teachers in the classroom trying to take care of the entire strength of the class. So what happens is that the teachers begin empowering children by helping them do things on their own. Children are expected to wash their hands before snack time, keep personal belongings in their cupboard and put away toys before moving to a new activity. Teachers will also ask children to help their classmates. So if a particular child has learnt the skill of pouring water in a glass, the teacher might ask him/her to help the classmate. 4. Nurtures Curiousity Preschool teachers are trained in a way that nurtures the curiousity of children. Teachers observe children in their everyday behaviour, ask questions and willingly listen to a child’s ideas regarding something particular. Children like adults, feel appreciated when someone listens to what they have to say. To nurture the curiosity of children and motivate them to learn, teachers use interesting activities that engage children while simultaneously ensuring fun. 5. Children Learn Alphabets and Numbers The curriculum of a preschool is formed taking the age of children into consideration. Children learn their alphabets and numbers that are the basics. But preschool teaches these things in a way that is interesting for children and interactive. This is often done by way of games and stories. To teach children literacy skills, they are taught rhymes and poems while to sharpen their math skills, children engage in counting activities or memory games. At ‘Shanti Juniors’ preschool, our entire atmosphere revolves around helping children flourish in the best way possible. With ‘Shanti Juniors’, you will be giving your children the best possible start to a bright future. At Shanti Juniors playschool, a child learns Sanskaar (values) through which s/he becomes Saakshar (educated) and ultimately the child becomes capable, Saksham i.e. to contribute in his/her surroundings. Hence, we say – Yahaan Shanti Juniors mein Sanskaar, Saakshar aur Saksham se hota hai bacchhon ka sampoorna vikas!

Four Reasons to Let Your Child Get Messy! If you have little kids in your house, you know firsthand that as cute and endearing a child may seem finger painting or drawing on the walls or using glitter on everything in the house, the reality of paint on walls and fingers, glitter all around the house and the unavoidable task of cleaning up is not pleasing. But research shows that getting messy is one of the best ways for children to learn and grow. Mentioned below are four reasons to let your child get messy: 1. Fosters Creativity While exploring and experiencing activities including drawing on the walls, or playing with toys, the imagination of children expands and their creativity increases significantly. With raw materials such as sand, water, chalk, paint, play dough or paste, the imagination of children runs wild. They make their discoveries, which leads to soaring of curiousity of children. 2. Ignites the Senses Children are visual and auditory learners. By having sensory experiences, children learn to control themselves. Taste, touch, smell, sight and sound are the five senses we use in sensory development. By allowing children to be messy, we allow them to use all their senses, leading to regulation of their stimuli. 3. Builds Motor Skills There are many ways in which children build and exercise their fine motor skills as well as gross motor skills. As compared to the same old toys, giving your children paper, some sketch pens or paint will lead them to using their fingers and hands more leading to the strengthening and sharpening of fine as well as gross motor skills. The small hands as well as finger muscles are the ones children use for all major activities whether it is feeding themselves, drawing or playing with their favourite toy. 4. Inspires Open Ended Thinking Giving children a chance to create things helps their brain develop without boundaries. There are no limitations children are bound by while creating art or involving in messy play. A lot of concentration is required while engaging in messy play whether it is exploring objects or doing something that engages all their hand muscles. The brain develops essential learning skills which enables children to focus and concentrate. Children learn to play independently and develop problem-solving skills that lead to the development of self-esteem and self-confidence. So the next time children are creating a mess, remember that it is leading to development of their brain and will serve various benefits to them. “The greatest gifts you can give your children are the roots of responsibility and the wings of independence.” We at Shanti Juniors pre-school follow the same. Our toddlers grasp on the basis of real learning rather than testing of factoids. Shanti Juniors preschool gives them the freedom to explore and learn.

5 Things you should Give Your Children during the Heat Wave Most parts of our country are experiencing a particularly dreadful summer this year. The blazing sun makes it impossible to venture out of the house even into the courtyard. For kids, this means staying and playing indoors. We can help children remain cool externally with air conditioners, air coolers and with regular showers but the body needs to be cooled down internally too. This is crucial as it can play a key role in saving children from dehydration and heatstroke. Mentioned below are five things that parents should give their children during a heatwave to keep them cool internally: 1.Curd: Easily one of the best things to give a child in heated summers not just because of its cool nature but more so because of its nutritional benefits. Curd has probiotic bacteria, also known as good bacteria which can be helpful for the body. Since curd is made from milk predominantly, it is full of calcium, Vitamin D, healthy gut bacteria and protein. You can give it as an accompaniment to usual lunch or dinner or can give it as a snack by making Shrikhand or even serving your child’s favourite fruit with curd or by making a curd cheese dip accompanied with some veggie sticks and crackers. Why not take the benefit of mango season and make mango flavoured Shrikhand with curd? Sounds delicious already. 2.Watermelon: Red, juicy and cooling! Watermelon is loved by one and all. The juicy bits of watermelon contains 92 per cent of water and are loaded with essential nutrients. Watermelon can help children remain hydrated and are full of vitamin C; which helps boost the immune system and healing wounds. It also contains Vitamin A, which is good for eyesight, and potassium which keeps healthy. You can give your child some watermelon in the form of watermelon juice, fresh-cut pieces of watermelon, watermelon and cheese salad. To give it a twist that kids will love, you can add some mint leaves to watermelon juice and make watermelon popsicles. Your kids will love them. 3.Sugarcane Juice: The green liquid that feels like a cool breeze on a heated summer day with the very first sip is sugarcane juice. The juice from sugarcane is one of the best things you can give to your growing child due to its nutritional content. It is one of the richest sources of calcium. In addition to calcium, it has various antioxidants that can help keep diseases and bacteria at bay. Sugarcane juice is known to ease a sore throat as well as serve as an instant source of an energy boost. So the next time your child might feel dehydrated, reach for a glass of sugarcane. 4.Cucumber: Due to its high water content, cucumbers are an ideal cooling snack for children in summers. Cucumbers help in maintaining body heat and are full of vitamins. It is made up of 96 per cent water which is the reason why eating cucumbers quenches thirst easily and replenishes minerals as well as water in the body. 5 Coconut Water: Coconut known as the tropical drink of gods, it is said that children as well as aged in particular should have coconut water before noon. Coconut water is an instant energy drink that is both pure and natural. It is full of electrolytes, as well as essential minerals making it a perfect drink for summers. The above mentioned things are all healthy. Feel free to indulge in some delicious ice-cream sundaes, some ice sorbets or mangoes and cream with your child. After all, what are summers without ice-cream and mangoes!

4 Ways to Teach Seasons to Children! Seasons play a huge role in our day to day life. A change in season affects the adults as well, but for children, it might be a different story altogether. Children at an early age are not aware of what the seasons are, but they notice changes that occur. They are curious about it. Hence, it is a good idea to talk to them and teach them about seasons at an early age. This will not only help further their education but also help them cope with changes that come along with them. Parents and teachers can adopt the following 4 ways to familiarize them with seasons: 1.Number of Seasons It is prudent that one must start with the number of seasons that occur, to begin with. This is necessary as different countries often have different seasons. A friend or relative of yours might be staying in a different country, and the child might get confused about why they are experiencing a different season. The number of seasons sets a base for the child to work with and experience on a daily basis. This also allows you to teach them about how different seasons are different all over the world. Teach your child different seasons that occur in India and it will surely fascinate your child. 2. Characteristics of Seasons Once you have taught your children and explained to them about the number of seasons, the next step is to teach them about the characteristics of each season. It will be fascinating for them to know how cold is associated with winter, warmness with summer, and rains with the monsoon. While further information might be too advanced for them, the characteristics will help them understand why people behave in a certain way in each season. Children often question the need to wear certain clothes in certain months, explanation regarding seasons might quench their thirst. 3. Holidays in Each Season The explanation part might not be difficult, but it is important that the child understand that as well as remember it. An activity to help with that is to associate holidays with different seasons. A Mix-n-match box that places different holidays in different seasons can serve as a learning, and playtime activity for your children. It ends up serving the dual purpose of teaching kids about holidays along with the seasons. 4. Favourite Food for each Season Another method to help with remembering and teaching your child about seasons is food. Every family and child has a few special dishes that they love. Mangoes are a favourite amongst many children. Mangoes are associated with the arrival of the summer season. In a similar manner, different fruits, vegetables as well as special dishes are consumed more often in a particular season. Interacting with your kids about food and associating that with different seasons can help them remember the seasons quickly. There are various games and activities available on the internet apart from these methods to help teach kids about seasons. These methods though, serve multiple purposes and helps develop communication with children, as you talk to them about food, seasons, and holidays. Talking and listening skills are developed, and those skills are your friends in all seasons. At Shanti Juniors, we strive to teach children in the best manner possible to not only educate them but to facilitate their all-round development. At Shanti Juniors, our stimulating environment and culturally appropriate curricular programs are thoughtfully designed to foster the holistic development of children. We make them understand the basics step by step so that their learning foundation becomes strong. We teach them in a manner that they become torchbearers in society.
