Periwinkles, as we call our children, are from diverse family backgrounds come with a wealth of interests and abilities. Growing and learning in such a place would help our children get started on their lifelong adventure of learning.
Apart from the everyday routine, there are lots of special activities that are designed to provide the kids with life skills and to make a child's stay at Periwinkle more enjoyable and interesting.
Every new concept introduced to a child is made to learn through stories. Stories are the genre, which a child finds amusing. The children are taken to another imaginative world which puts them on the process of questioning and reasoning with a context. The food for thought is provided to the young minds through Periwinkle's creative curriculum of stories.
One of the best ways to enhance reading habit in a child is to make reading material easily available. Giving books that are appropriate and attractive to their age group gets children attracted to reading. Periwinkle Library is to promote the reading habit to a child at his/her early days of schooling.
Teaching alphabets to kids by associating it with their sounds is phonic reading. It helps them read the language with fluency and accuracy. Phonics is a scientific approach to ease the problem of memorizing the spellings in English language. Periwinkle’s curriculum compliments it with colorful animated worksheets, rhyming songs and stories makes it enjoyable to kids.
Kids ask lots of questions, which make them, explore the world around. They are naturally inquisitive and curious. Periwinkle’s simple science activities and experiments give them a skill to seek answers and look at the world scientifically.
Children are taken to nearby places for an additional practical learning. Periwinkle's field trips such as to Fire station and post office visits to know about the public service facilities or to a park or temple to know more about social gatherings or car showroom or the vegetable/fruit shops to know about the things we use in daily life.
At Periwinkle, stories and plays are expressed to children through puppet shows. Looking at the miniature characters on the hands of their teachers, children jump with joy. When characters move around and converse, the child's excitement has no bounds. Periwinkle aims at providing pleasure of learning through these joyous methods.
Several activities such as the teacher pouring water on children holding umbrellas to teach how to protect us from rainy season, making children hop like rabbits to find the carrot through a maze drawn by teacher on the grounds, searching the similar colour cards in sand play for treasure hunt, making a slip-on with the foot prints of kids, singing good manners through rhymes, etc. are the byproducts of constant and continuous effort of Periwinkle’s teachers and management at the weekly meetings to make a child’s learning better and happy.
Life is enthusiastic and blissful when we are part a culture and are proud about it. This brings us to celebrate all the major festivals at Periwinkle with parents and families of children. It could be little Krishnas and Radhas on Janmashtami or receiving surprise gifts from Santa Clause or exchanging the colorful shiny cards on Eid or singing the patriotic songs on Independence Day. Everything gives a sense of pride to us and to our Periwinkles and their families
