Your child's first years of school are filled with many wondrous moments. It's time for tremendous social, emotional, physical, and intellectual development as well. Preschool may look like all fun and games, music, story time, dancing and art but there is an intense amount of brainwork going on. Young children learn through play and creative activity.
At Springdales we inculcate four basic skills in our children. They are language and literacy skills, thinking skills, self confidence and
self control skills. These skills are critical to later school success. We set your child up for success with language and literacy through
phonics. Activity cards and books help your child understand vowels and blending syllables giving them confidence and command of
the language. We provide our young learners with music, games and other multiple opportunities to hear, practice and see English
language for vocabulary and conversational development. We include lessons on greetings, numbers, colours, animals, family,body
parts and how to get engaged conversationally during common scenarios at home, a restaurant or at a grocery store. Reading
enriches children's learning about language, it helps in understanding and communicating through words spoken and written while
having fun with the turn of every new page.
An ongoing research proves that music helps children think, reason, create, and express themselves. Children laugh and learn about rhythms, vocal melodies and different musical instruments which also lower stress. To facilitate thinking we introduce various mathematical concepts like numbers, counting, addition, subtraction, shapes and solids. Maths is everywhere and giving your child a clear concept now will help him later. Gross motor skills are enhanced through activities like running, jumping, laying mats, fetching materials independently. Fine motor skills are enhanced through activities like paper cutting, clay modelling, play dough, rolling and kneading, lacing and beading , folding and unfolding of napkins, opening and closing of bottles, boxes, nuts, bolts, dressing frames zips, buttons , laces etc. Activities are designed for the enhancement of neuromuscular control, eye- hand coordination, prehensile movement, development of pitcher and dominant fingers grip for future writing.
