The importance of PLAY in a child’s development is so profound that the United Nations High Commission for Human Rights have recognised it as a basic right of every child. Children should be exposed to regular and unstructured play which aids their development. However, this is becoming increasingly difficult with factors such as passive entertainment (TV, video gaming etc.), increased focus on studies and lack of outdoor playing areas.
Playgroup is a facility that allows parents to safely allow their children to interact with others of their age group and try new things. During the early childhood years, children must be in an environment that enhances their physical, cognitive, social, logical and literary skills. It is designed for babies, toddlers to,
• Develop social skills
• Build emotional confidence
• Support creativity
• Engage in physical activity & role play
Our playgroup provides adequate experiences with objects, toys, and activities that appeal to their basic playful nature. We take special care and attention to the children and help them overcome their separation anxiety.
People living in cities will agree that it is becoming increasingly difficult for children to find spaces for playing games. Children need to engage in physical activity during these early childhood days which enhances their physical strength and keeps them active. At QLM, we have a vast open play area with a variety of toys and outdoor play equipment.
Our curriculum: We follow thematic approach to engage children effectively by introducing concepts through a new theme every month. Through this theme based approach, we provide them an experiential learning through rhymes, stories, art and craft, logical reasoning activities, music, dance and free plays. For example: We will celebrate colours day every month in the school where students are involved in activities that enable them to learn the different colours and associate the colours with different objects in life. As a part of the colours day activity, children are made to do art/craft works related to their learning about colours which they take as a souvenir back home.
