FAQ

Do all children benefit from your curriculum?

As mentioned in the description of the school’s goals, our curriculum approaches are tailored to each individual child's development and present needs. Therefore, any child can benefit from attending our school

What will my child learn?

In addition to strengthening socialization skills children will learn how to compromise and be respectful of others. Our school provides a place where your child can gain a sense of self, explore, play with peers, and build confidence. From small tasks like pouring their own milk and helping set snack tables to tackling bigger issues like making decisions about how to spend their free time, the child will learn all these basic activities. Our playschool helps children find answers through exploration, experimentation, and conversation.

Will my child know his ABCs?

Young children can certainly learn letters and numbers, but to sit kids down and 'teach' them is the wrong way to do it. To help kids learn language and strengthen pre-reading skills, our teachers play rhyming games and tell stories. We believe, playschool is all about having fun and acquiring social skills and not only achieving academic milestones .

How can I keep up with what’s going on with my child in class?

Parents will receive a calendar of events each month for them to review. Teachers will also send weekly newsletters, describing the child’s activities and growth for that particular week. To further strengthen parent-school partnership each lesson includes components that make parents an active part of their child’s education.

What is your approach to disciplining preschool children?

At Seth M.R. Jaipuria, Gomti Nagar Playgroup we absolutely denounce all forms of punishment to a playgroup student. We believe in conscious discipline such as setting boundaries, redirecting, encouragement, one- on-one problem-solving, and teaching skills that promote empathy and self-regulation. Our teachers never berate, embarrass, punish, or withhold food or activities in order to discipline children.

How do I know my child is safe at school?

Our classrooms have been designed and structured keeping in mind the complete safety of the child. All our work equipments are child friendly . Our campus has a fully equipped infirmary and the playgroup teachers are trained for emergency first aids.

My child is "so shy". How will he do in a group situation?

A child may be reserved by nature. Cautious children are often very good observers, as it takes them time to initiate contact. Rushing into a decision to intervene may make the child feel pressured. When an assessment is made, an interactive intervention will be tentatively chosen within the context of the child's activity (to leave the child alone, provide company, help with transition, etc.)

What if my child feels lost in a crowd?

We understand this is the first transition a child maybe making from home to school, therefore we are mindful of providing personal attention to each child. The 1:10 student-teacher ratio helps sustain a sense of belonging for each child in the classroom.

Do I have to leave my child on their first session or can I stay for a while?

As parents it may feel uneasy to leave children at a new place. Therefore we allow parents to accompany the child in the first few days of the session. However it is suggested to let the child on his/her own as it becomes easier for them to get comfortable in the school environment and be more independent.
