The unique prepositions of Smart Kid Nursery

1. Digital Classrooms

Most kids of today’s general will not remember the time before internet, smart phones, laptops and tablets. The methodology to teach with a chalk and green board or a marker and white board is going to be a passé in near future. To embrace and accustom the kids with the digital learning phenomenon we have introduced “Smart Boards” in our classroom. Today’s kids are smart and to make their learning process exciting and challenging the concept of smart boards was implemented. The audio/visual effects help the kid see, analyse, be curious and learn new concepts. It enhances children’s engagement, such as talking, interacting, manipulating, pretending, reading, constructing, and exploring.

2. Holistic Curriculum developed by R&D Cell of SKN

Our Curriculum is designed and developed to cater to the needs of younger preschool children. The child will be immersed in daily language, math and science activities. Our program builds your child’s self-confidence in a group setting, helping him or her succeed both academically and socially. We provide an educational foundation to prepare children for later learning in literacy and math.

The learning pedagogy mainly focuses on developing the Social Skills of the child. The child develops the ability to function within a cooperative learning environment where he/she works both independently and as a member of small and large groups as a vital skill. In addition, children learn to work on and complete tasks, follow two- and three-step directions, take turns sharing, caring for personal needs, and following rules.

Secondly, the curriculum stresses on developing the Fine Motor Skills of the children.

Use one hand more than the other (known as “hand dominance”)

Hold a pencil using a tripod grip (two fingers and a thumb)

Cut out basic shapes with scissors; may be able to cut a straight line

More focus is given on developing the Cognitive Skills of the children and they are taught to

Recognize and name colours and basic shapes

Know the letters of the alphabet and letter sounds

Recite their name, address and phone number

Know that stories have a beginning, middle and end

Count groups of objects up to 10 and recite numbers to 20

Stick with an activity for 15 minutes and finish a short project

Make plans about how to play, what to build or what to draw

Apart from these basic Skill-Set the teacher ensures that the children develop their Language Skills as well. Stress is given on proper pronunciation of words and small sentence construction, Recitation, Singing and Dancing.

3. Interview Facing Skills

The Child needs to face interviews while taking admission for Kindergarten. We at SKN prepare the children on this aspect as well. Lot of Confidence Building activities are done for developing the courage of the children to be able to answer the questions asked by strangers. We invite staff members of other branches to conduct these mock interview sessions with the children and the complete live telecast is shown to their parents with the help of the AV system. This activity helps teachers and parents to identify the areas of improvement in the child and more focus is given on those areas. This is a very unique activity carried out at all branches of SKN..
