Child Development

Worried about snack times and break times at School? Based on the school timings and the travel involved, you can pack some dry fruits or quick healthy bites for your little ones. After the settling phase, our facilitators will provide you with a timetable and a Menu chart for break time. This is done to ensure that your child eats healthily at school and we maintain consistency in what, all the children eat during the break time.
Not being able to train your child to eat independently?

All you need to remember is that messiness is an unavoidable part of the self-feeding learning process. We let every child take his own time so that the learning process is smooth. The older your child gets, the more motivated he will be. At Kidzee, we ensure that our facilitators personally supervise the break times for every child in our care; and ensure that they eat properly.
If you think that your child is reacting to a particular food item, always refer to a doctor. Also, keep us informed so that we can re-work and design the menu chart for your child, in discussion with you, avoiding that particular food item. We also, avoid food-sharing between our children, in order to be careful about this aspect.
We believe in offering opportunities for all our children to develop self-help skills and giving them ample time to work on these aspects. It is essential for us to remember that adults at home and school are the important role models and that children learn a lot by observing us.
Children love to play. It is not only fun but also essential for growth and development. During these early years, play should not be restricted to indoors only. Outdoor play is equally important and an inevitable part of a child's life.
Encouraging children to play outdoors is becoming more important considering the changing lifestyles. Today, children spend number of hours watching television and playing games on the computer. But at the same time, children need to get out and have some fun! They need time and space for free play and movement. It is that time during the day where children have complete freedom to run and jump about, and make noise. It is a perfect way to make children more energetic, creative and enthusiastic.
Children love music! Whether it's soft and soothing or a lively tune, children feel it both physically and emotionally.
Music is an outlet to stimulate the mind. It affects the child in all the areas of development right from the time he/she is born. Most importantly, children experience great joy and pleasure listening to music. With minimum effort, a teacher can bring happiness to children each day just by providing the opportunity to do something with music. Children respond to music enthusiastically and spontaneously without any inhibition.
It is difficult to imagine a preschool classroom having no time for rhymes or music. Think of the song 'Old Mac Donald'. It is such an effective way of introducing children to the world of farm animals and the sounds they make.
The season of showers has begun. The rain brings along with it the natures beauty – beautiful raindrops, colourful rainbows, creepy crawlies and thundering storms. This season is most awaited, especially by children. Children enjoy going out. They love floating paper boats and enjoy the splash in the puddle.
All children enjoy the early days of monsoon, but it soon becomes a hurdle as they cannot go out to play and we often hear them sing, "Rain, rain, go away, Come again another day, Little children want to play…"
More often than not children have to enjoy the rains staying indoors. Nonetheless, the rains can be made interesting for them.
Make a scrapbook. Have the children select brightly coloured, attractive pictures about the rain. Help them in making a collage. Use materials like pictures, photographs, newspapers, crayons, old greeting cards, etc. Make a book that reflects all aspects of the rains – clouds, animals, rainbow etc.
Creating a safe environment for children must be a priority of every caregiver – a parent and an early childhood educator. A safe environment for a child is one that provides freedom from harm and offers a sense of security in which he/she can play, develop, and learn. As young children play and explore, minor injuries and accidents naturally occur. Since young children are at a stage where their physical, cognitive and emotional skills are still developing, injuries are bound to happen. These accidents can however be prevented. The first step towards providing for safety is to ensure that the preschool follows strict safety guidelines.
