Choosing the right pre-school for your child can prove to be a very difficult task. The feeling of leaving your lil one alone in a new place for hours on a stretch is no less than a mini heart attack. But if you keep a couple of things in mind, pre-schooling could be a joyride for you and your little VIP.
My fears got relieved when I visited Wonder Years Pre-School with Shiv where we met Ms. Sharmila Galundia, patron of the school and a seasoned teacher with years of experience in dealing with young minds.
Wonder Years follows Reggio Emilia inspired, emergent curriculum founded on the child’s curiosity. It is an experiential approach to learning and discovery of ideas. A rounded development is envisioned with an emphasis on social, cognitive, personal, physical and emotional well-being. The collaborators work together to create a stimulating environment where an idea is explored via discussions and hands-on experiences.
There are no conventional classrooms in the schools but different learning zones like — Shakespeare’s Studio which is music and movement room, Creative Cove which fosters creative freedom and imagination, Building Blocks which is a space for logical, scientific and numerical development, Yogi Beans which focuses on gross motor skills and physical development of the children.
Ms. Sharmila has taken care of the minutest of details in conceptualizing the school. What inspired me the most was the use of natural material like wood, sand, twigs, tree branches, etc. instead of the usual plastic toys and other items.
The school is designed to provide an unrestricted and varied environment which fosters the children to learn things using their individual and unique sensibility.
Wonder Years is a blessing in disguise for all you new mothers who are looking to get back to work. Their Day-Care Facility is equipped with all the safety and comfort amenities fused with homely vibes to ensure your young one is at ease while learning.
And this is not it, the school also doubles up as a After-School Activity Centre, wherein they conduct a slew of exciting and fun activities for children like creative writing, skating, dance, music, art & craft, theatre, personality grooming, book reading, public speaking, tabletop cooking, indoor games, yoga, martial arts, organic gardening, DIY workshops, to name a few.
