Online Schools Are Like ATMs

A Fortune magazine article describes how strange it was a few decades ago for Americans to interact with ATMs. Everyone was used to asking for their hard-earned money from a human being behind a bank window.

They wanted to see, with their very own eyes, each bill counted out by the teller. They required a receipt, hand-stamped by an employee of the bank, indicating that their paycheck had indeed been deposited. When the ATM arrived, it came along like an insult–not just as progress, but as preemption, a ploy to get customers to stop using expensive human tellers.

Many people also thought (even the banks!) that the ATM machines would mean the end of human tellers.  In the very same way online higher education is seen by many as a “ploy” to provide cheap and by implication lower quality education.  Even a large impersonal higher ed classrooms with a hundred students is sometimes preferable to online education.

The journey to school and lifelong learning

Success to us is freedom of choice:Through play, children learn many skills, such as how to interact with other people, and different ways of thinking, long before they start school or even Kindergarten and play school. These skills help children do well in school and in life. When children feel good about learning and are eager, curious, and confident when starting school, they are more likely to:

• Do well in school

• Finish school

• Continue on a journey of lifelong learning.

Starting school is a big milestone for us and your child. We prepares your child for the type of learning that takes place in grade one and beyond. It is free for all children in India.

In Kindergarten/Preschool children learn by:Image

        • Exploring the world through play with the active presence of teachers.

        • Having teachers guide their learning through play activities

That suit the child’s age and level of development.

Modern children in India one day will start full-day learning when they start Kindergarten / Preschool. For more information about full-day early learning, go to the OUR website at: http://www.abhikarma.com.

10 signs of a great preschool

If your child is between the ages of 3 and 6 and attends a childcare center, preschool, or kindergarten program, the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) suggests you look for these 10 signs to make sure your child is in a good classroom:

  1. Children spend most of their time playing and working with materials or other children. They do not wander aimlessly and are not expected to sit quietly for long periods of time.
  2. Children have access to various activities throughout the day. Look for assorted building blocks and other construction materials; props for pretend play; picture books; paints and other art materials; and table toys such as matching games, pegboards, and puzzles. Children should not all be doing the same thing at the same time.
  3. Teachers work with individual children, small groups, and the whole group at different times during the day. They do not spend all their time with the whole group.
  4. The classroom is decorated with children’s original artwork, their own writing with invented spelling, and stories dictated by children to teachers.
  5. Children learn numbers and the alphabet in the context of their everyday experiences. The natural world of plants and animals and meaningful activities like cooking, taking attendance, or serving snack provide the basis for learning activities.
  6. Children work on projects and have long periods of time (at least one hour) to play and explore. Worksheets are used little if at all.
  7. Children have an opportunity to play outside every day. Outdoor play is never sacrificed for more instructional time.
  8. Teachers read books to children individually or in small groups throughout the day, not just at group story time.
  9. Curriculum is adapted for those who are ahead as well as those who need additional help. Teachers recognize that children’s different background and experiences mean that they do not learn the same things at the same time in the same way.
  10. Children and their parents look forward to school. Parents feel secure about sending their child to the program. Children are happy to attend; they do not cry regularly or complain of feeling sick.

Also ask if the program is accredited by our programs complete a rigorous self-study and external review to prove that they meet standards of excellence in early childhood education.

A Hands-On Approach to Nurturing the Parent Partnership

In these days of dual working parents and super-busy lifestyles, it’s even more challenging to build relationships with families and involve them in your programs. When parents are active in their child’s education, optimum learning is much more likely to occur, but there’s also something in it for you. Not only are parents experts on their own children, they’re also talented and can provide resources money can’t buy. Nurturing a partnership with parents will strengthen and move your classroom and center towards excellence in care and education. Let’s look at some simple ways you can create parent partnerships in your program. Parents and Teachers Working Together Parents have good ideas. They know their children well, have their best interests in mind, and have taken a giant leap of faith by placing them in your care. Listening to their collective voice is a wise thing to do. Together you can create a great environment for children.
Suggestion Box: A suggestion box gives shy parents an easy way to communicate, an unhappy parent a way
to vent, a supportive parent an avenue for making helpful suggestions, and the happy parent a way to shower
you with compliments. Place the box, index cards, and pencils in an easily accessible location, but out of the
way—a place that assures some privacy and anonymity. Be sure to check the box frequently.
Parent Survey: A survey will tell you how your program meets the needs of your families. What do they like
most about the program? Would they like extended or evening care? Make the survey short, conduct it yearly,
and provide some type of incentive so that parents will return it.
Parent Advisory Council: Enlisting a group of helpful, concerned parents is one of the best ways to
demonstrate that you want to create a true partnership. If you haven’t done this before, it might be a little
threatening at first. Parents may make suggestions that are impossible because of budget or policy constraints.
That’s when brainstorming collectively proves that many head
