In a rapidly changing world, making sure that children have a pleasant learning experience is imperative. Teachers and parents often wonder what it takes for a young mind to sparkle with ideas, creativity, and innovation. And the answer is – love and nurturing. As a teacher and even as a parent, with love and patience, you can capture a child’s attention with ease. Children reflect what is thrown at them! So if you throw love and thirst for knowledge at them, along with a bit of discipline, you will witness the seed of curiosity in a child.
Young minds are like sponges – they absorb everything around them – from the physical environment to psychological and emotional experiences. It’s the sum total of all of the above that goes into shaping a toddler and turning them into a future leader. Now, that makes parenting a big responsibility, doesn’t it?
Responsible parenting has to do a lot about how you educate your child, which starts right from selecting the correct pre-school for your child. While each parent wants his or her child to become successful from the word go, the first step in this process is to choose the right formative education for the young one! The right playschool and nursery must also focus equally on the holistic development of the child. And most importantly, they must inculcate a love for learning at an early age.
Now, how do we create a love for learning in children?
Parents constantly worry about this question. But in reality, it’s a matter of using a few simple strategies that could include:
Empowering children to discover their own interests and passions
Letting children get a hands-on experience over what they are being taught and allowing them to be curious about ideas beyond what they are learning in school
Making the entire experience of learning fun for them by involving them in as many child-centric activities as possible
Since a child spends more time in a formal education environment than at home, especially in his or her adolescent years, it becomes imperative to provide the right beginning for a child. A preschool that encourages children to be themselves right from the word go will empower them to seek new learning every day.
A place like Beansprouts Preschool, a contemporary preschool in Gurgaon from the team associated with the well-known Blue Bells Group of Schools, is the ideal place to start. Here, children are given the freedom to discover their own learning style and are encouraged to form their own ideas and opinions.
Housed in a spacious green campus of one-acre, Beansprouts advocates a child-centric environment that provides a vibrant ecosystem of learning and play. Here, the guiding philosophy is that when one develops a love for learning, one never ceases to grow.
At Beansprouts we firmly believe that love is the catalyst that ignites the thirst for learning and development, and this is the approach we take towards developing a child’s social and cognitive skills. Hence, aptly, our philosophy is Learn to Love and Love to Learn.
As our former president, APJ Abdul Kalam, rightly said, “When learning is purposeful, creativity blossoms. When creativity blossoms, thinking emanates. When thinking emanates, knowledge is fully lit. When knowledge is lit, the economy flourishes.” This is also what the educationists at Beansprouts firmly believe.
To nurture the thirst for knowledge among the children, Beansprouts has experts in the field of education and teachers who are more of education evangelists. The curriculum ensures that the child is placed at the center of the learning experience, with the outdoors teaming up as the ‘third teacher.’
This dynamic approach towards learning empowers children to pursue their interests and their natural quest for knowledge.
