Virtual Preschooling Stories

Virtual Preschooling Stories

Kangaroo Kids launched #VirtualPreschooling in March 2020 ever since the lockdown was announced. Through the launch and execution of our virtual schooling program we have seen many magic-moments and incredible stories on how the #VirtualPreschoolingProgram is unfolding, how the curriculum + teaching teams are creatively leveraging resources to ensure learning is fun for our children across age groups.

Empathy is one of the world’s most powerful currencies! As we face battle one of the most challenging phases of the century, we realize that it is the power of the ‘human connection’ and ‘bonds’ that matter most. Being in the education space, it was clear that we will find innovative ways to not just ‘keep in touch’ but keep our children ‘happy, stimulated & engaged’. Shouting out to our ARMY OF INCREDIBLES that has made Holistic Virtual Schooling possible for us – our team members across IT, Curriculum, Academics – teachers and school leadership teams. These are our unsung heroes who have risen to this occasion to ensure #LearningIsNotLockedDown. Sharing a peek into the outcome of our #VirtualSchoolingProgram. The happiness and sense of safety and positivity is what this is all about.

Experiencing new things is rewarding and it lets our child remember more concepts, topics and attach more meaning v/s passive absorption. Nidhi Singh, our Grade 3 teacher at Billabong High International School found her way to her children’s hearts, minds & tummies! Here’s how they are learning about ‘Fossils’ – a hands on activity on ‘Trace Fossils’ was planned for children using chocolate and dough ;). This is one #VirtualSchooling session all the children definitely remember!

A happy & confident learner is one of the greatest compliments to a teacher! Everyday in everyway we try to make learning fun and meaningful for our children. It was heartwarming to see our Jr. KG student Aarshi Kapoor step into her ‘teaching shoes’ sharing with us the concept of the ‘Water Cycle’. Kudos to the parents who have nurtured and encouraged this kind of role play as it helps in repeating & reinforcing concepts and subjects taught in preschool. It has always been our goal to encourage our children to learn in a setting that sparks their imagination through creative play – this transcends well into their futures at primary school, not just in early years.

Children who read for pleasure become lifelong readers. Taking this love for reading one step ahead during #lockdown, our enterprising school leadership team at Billabong Santacruz have launched a #VirtualLibrary! Catch a glimpse of our #VirtualLibrarySession – We have leveraged the treasure trove of books from the National Digital Library Of India and select books are flashed on the screen while some children read aloud turn-by-turn and some ready silently. Active reader questions are then posed by the librarian, once the reading is completed! Talk about optimal utilization of #VirtualSchooling!

‘Community’ is a big part of the learning adventure at Kangaroo Kids. We didn’t let the lockdown dampen our guest-visit plan this April! See how a grandparent contributed to host a very informative session for our PSY4 children. A virtual visitor! She took the children through how times have changed over the years: A day in the life of our grandparents v/s a day in our life today. Change best explained by the ones that have experienced it first hand! Our preschool calendar is full of field trips, outdoor sessions and guest-visits : that help enhance our children’s knowledge of different subjects and also bring a sense of freshness to the topics taught in class. We ensured ‘community’ still remains part of our #VirtualSchooling plan!

Children delight in learning. Since birth and even before birth, they are wired to continuously test their surroundings – this helps them better understand concepts like hot and cold/ heavy and light/ light and dark. Fast forward by 15 years, imagine teaching children organic chemistry virtually! Special mention to our fabulous teacher Meekakshi Parashar. Here she is conducting a session in organic chemistry with her ICSE batch of Grade 10 students. Teachers are truly going that extra mile to make it meaningful and innovative for our children ensuring #LearningIsNotLockedDown.

Did you know you could teach hindi, numbers and art – all while playing with wheat flour with your toddler at home! How often have you heard of ‘multi-disciplinary’ and ‘integrated learning’? Witness it in action here... Congratulating our Sr.Kg teacher for hosting a fabulous class loved by both our children and parents! Parents enthusiastically kept the kneaded dough ready for the fun engaging ‘virtual language’ session. We salute the commitment, creativity & drive with which our teachers are ensuring #LearningIsNotLockedDown!

 

Everyone loves games! Here’s a peek into our Billabong High International School, Hadapsar, Pune revision class. We love the way our teacher has used the #SpinWheelActivity to make it a fun interactive session for the children. Our parents will tell you how most of our lesson plans are designed to build curiosity among children and designed to make every concept a ‘learning adventure’ – across grades! After all, playing games are the first method children use to explore higher-order thinking skills associated with creating, evaluating, analyzing, and applying new knowledge.
