The seed of success lies in the development of basic human characteristics in a child. Kalorex Pre School aims at providing education, which instills values, enables students to explore their surroundings and learn through fun and play.
The curriculum and methodology is designed by combining the traditional Montessori method with interactive participatory approach, to ensure that each child adds value to his growth – each moment, each day.
“Learning can be fun” becomes a factual reality when the child, through music, dramatic play, story telling, group activity, communication, creative and visual imagery and the introduction to the 3 R’s, develops confidence, self esteem and a ‘desire for learning’. The informal setting focuses on play and spontaneity, which conditions the child’s perspective. The emphasis is on all-round development, which encompasses emotional and social development, gross and fine motor skills, language development and academic skills.

PREPARING THE CHILD TO COME TO SCHOOL:
Children’s first teachers are their parents and their first classroom is the family. Before preparing a child for school a parent should play a good role model as a teacher at home which makes the child comfortable and over come anxieties or phobia when the child comes to the school. A child should be aware of another god mother who would be as loving and caring as his own parents. Parenting should be an enjoyable process rather than a chore.
Sending a child off to school is an emotional experience both for parents and a child. This is a significant landmark in the development of the child. For the first time they are separated from their parents and this seems to jeopardize their comfort zone.
However, there are plenty of practical things that you can do to prepare them, such as talking to your child about school and helping to develop their practical skills.
The following is a list of helpful hints that might make that first day a success and help set the tone for the coming years.
>> Make sure your child spends some time away from you before he enters school. This may be a day care center or a pre school or with friends or relatives. Allow your child to occasionally stay overnight away from home to develop more independence.
>> When you visit the school, take your child along. Let him get acquainted with other children, teachers, the toys, and the layout of the building.
>> Never use school as a threat, such as, “You have to go to school today because you have behaved badly,” or you are going to complain to the teacher. Parents and schools should be perceived as people and places that show unconditional love.
>>Prepare him to go to school by talking with him about what the first day will probably be like. Tell him about fun with other children, with books and puzzles, the big blocks, with the computers and on the playground.
>>Make your child aware that every child goes to school and that schools are wonderful places to learn. Talk to your child about friends who will also be at school.
>>Don’t worry if your child is tearful when you are leaving the classroom. The tears disappear once the parents leave. If your child clings to you and cries when you are leaving, the best thing to do is to leave quickly. The longer you stay, the more difficult the situation will be. Usually such children calm down within a few minutes and enjoy school.
>>Most of the children experience no difficulties with coming to school. They are looking forward to being part of a school and to enjoy the new adventures and experiences. They will enjoy reading and learning and will express that joy.
>>Keep in close touch with your child’s teacher. Schooling is an on-going partnership between teachers and parents.
>> A child starting school is an amalgam of his parents’ physical, emotional, and intellectual make up. So it is necessary for the parents to try to separate their own abilities and talents from those of a child.
