The whole idea at Early Expressions in Madipakkam is to make learning fun and enjoyable. Our guiding principle for the play group program is to help your child to master the skills needed to succeed in school and in life. Play is the avenue by which a child learns. Children in the play group will be encouraged to sing, dance, play and participate in a number of interesting activities. This program introduces your child to a structured day with stimulating activities, group interaction and numerous opportunities to be inquisitive as they travel along the path to self – discovery.
Children need to feel good about themselves! Positive guidance techniques are used by our staff, to enhance a child’s feeling of self worth. Large & small group interaction which helps the children learn to co-operate, listen & share; self selected activities which stimulate cognitive growth & creativity, as well as emotional & social development; and outdoor activities which develop large and small motor skills are nurtured into the child’s environment.
The activities and themes in the nursery program have more academic orientation. Pre-reading, pre-writing, pre-math and of course social skills too are introduced in this stage in a very imaginative manner. This is their first school experience and special care has been taken to ensure that their school day is full of joyful learning activities which challenge them and develop a love for learning.
The curriculum offers ample scope for art, social interaction and exploring the environment. Listening skills & language build up; Yoga, singing, dancing, pottery, drama, story time, role-play, cooking, art & craft are all part of the curriculum. Learning experiences appropriate for the development of each group are provided daily. These activities help hone skills in each child.
An Individual Education Plan (IEP) is drawn up for each child. This is a collaborative effort on part of the special educators, physiotherapists, speech therapists and the child's care-giver. These IEP's are reviewed on a regular basis to monitor the progress of the child and are reformulated as and when needed. The classrooms in the Special section are equipped to give the children a happy yet stimulating and caring environment. In each of our fun rooms we have developed special areas call ‘Discovery Areas’ which are set up by our teachers as per the curriculum requirement to help your child explore and learn.
They are watched over by a committed and nurturing faculty and the school maintains an excellent student teacher ratio. As parents you have entrusted to us a very precious part of you. We acknowledge that responsibility with humility and are committed to working closely with you, for the future of our children.
