Broadly these are the fields covered under a playschool academic routine:

Sensory Development

Sensorial Life utilizes specially designed sensorial material to develop the physical sense and the powers of observation.

This area enables the child to gain an understanding of:

  • Taste: sweet, sour, salty, bitter, etc.  
  • Hearing: pitch, tone, loud and soft, etc.
  • Sight:  long and short, broad and narrow, small and large, geometric shapes, etc.
  • Touch: smooth and rough, hot and cold, heavy and light, etc.
  • Smell: spices, herbs, flower scents, etc.

Basic Concepts

Mathematics is introduced to the child through concrete, manipulative terms that enable him/her to understand the basic concepts. More abstract forms are then used as the child progresses from numbers, quantity numerals to concepts such as place values. As the child progresses, he/she starts working with addition, subtraction, multiplication and division using specially designed materials. The emphasis is on understanding that en rote learning.

Language Development

Language spans every area of the programme though it is included in the basic skills. It encompasses verbal skills, visual perception and small muscle coordination. Beginning with listening games, training the hand with puzzles, the child is familiarized with the alphabets. Specially designed materials enable the child to gain an understanding of how separate sounds combined together to form words. This area helps in oral language development, written expression, reading and grammar.

Enrichments

Enrichments are an introduction to the basic elements of our world – land, air and water. At first, the children use large wooden puzzle maps of the continents. As they learn the names of the continents, and then move on to maps of countries. This is followed by a gradual learning about climate, people.

Cognitive Development

Practical Life introduces the child to task organization and cognitive order through exercises such as pouring, polishing, spooning and buttoning. The child develops concentration, muscular coordination and a sense of order.  This area also aids in learning care of self, care of the environment, control of movement and social relations.

This area is the foundation for subsequent academic learning because it provides:

  • A SENSE OF ORDER that is a task’s beginning, middle and end.
  • SENSE OF INDEPENDENCE that is “I can do it by myself”.
  • *A SENSE OF COORDINATION that is ” We are a team”, and I need to coordinate with others.

Child will learn in playschool a lot of new things for sure. It is a readiness program before the formal schooling.

Is Playschool Education Necessary?

Should you send your child to a playschool? Here's what you should consider before making the decision.
Is Playschool Education Necessary?

Should you send your child to a playschool? Here’s what you should consider before making the decision.


A few decades ago, the concept of playschools in India was unheard of, and few children, if any, attended playschool. Still, everyone grew up into mature, sensible, well read and well-spoken adults. Now however it seems as if every parent sends their pre-nursery child off to a playschool.

Most playschools in India are privately owned, and expensive. If you are wondering whether to send your child to a playschool or not, here’s what you should consider before making a decision.

Time

Do you have a lot of time that you can devote to your child?

If both you and your spouse are working and you don’t have a lot of spare time, you may not be around to teach your child much – with the result that when your child starts school he may lag behind his classmates who have attended playschool. However, if one spouse is a stay-at-home parent and has the time to attend to the children and teach them, you could consider not sending your child to a playschool. Remember that very young children too have an incredible ability to learn. Their brains are remarkably sharp, and it makes sense to put them in an environment conducive to learning at this young age.

Playschool Education – Academic routine

When deciding which playschool to send your child to, try and find something that isn’t very academically inclined. Your child shouldn’t be struggling, trying to learn something like math at such a young age. Instead, find a play school that focuses on letting a child have fun while learning.

Playschool Education – Social opportunities

Play schools also provide an opportunity for children to socialize with other children. In addition, he will also gradually get used to the concept of a classroom in an informal manner, making his transition into school that much easier. So, if you live in an isolated neighborhood or in a place where there are not many other children your child’s age, it makes sense to send your child to playschool. Your child will learn to interact with numerous children at a young age.

Yes, the social benefits of sending your child to playschool are undeniable, but don’t expect miracles. If your child is shy, sending him to playschool will not automatically transform him into a confident person. In addition, you may find that there are other ways to help your child socialize. If you have membership to your local club for example, you could consider enrolling your child in sports.

Routine

Sending your child to a playschool helps ease him into a routine earlier on. However, remember that even if your child doesn’t go to playschool initially, 12-14 years of schooling followed by college will get him accustomed to a routine anyway. Whether or not he continues with the discipline depends on his innate nature and the job he takes up – and not on whether he has been to playschool or not.

What’s the point of homework?

Happy childhood is every child’s right.

All the best wishes to you on this amazing journey. This will surely give us an easy life.
