One of the anticipated moments of life is the time when newly parents get to experience the joy of their child. It has always been a tradition that the parent always ensures that their children get the best of everything , most importantly when it comes to early education. As the realization becomes widely evident parents these days are taking every measure in the book to begin their childís early educational development. This is where the child must be introduced to a pre-school environment that prepares the child to begin their future days in school. Eventually leading to an overall performance and a visible of the child.
Pre-school approach has also witnessed a potential change over the years and it now focuses more on activities that the child can participate. These activities prepare the child from an overall perspective and give them an edge before they take their further steps. It is also important that in their early days of growth, the child builds a good rapport with their parents. It is very essential to have a good parent-child equation, it helps the child in shaping their attitude.
The preparatory list never ends, with changing time there is always an evolution of process and that is how it must be. But the basics will always be the same, the cute trials and tribulations a child must go through would make them well-prepared to face every kind of challenges in the upcoming future. We are Shararat a premium Play school brand under Sri Raghvendra Singh Educational Services Private Limited registered under Ministry of Corporate Affairs, Govt of India.

Creative classrooms donít just look different, they feel different. They provide an environment where students are more likely to express their ideas, think outside the box, challenge problems with innovative solutions and most importantly ñ learn faster and more effectively. We at Shararat follows the following Steps:
1)Make rooms for visual reflection:
Between the pressure of keeping up with the school curriculum, meeting with parents and running daily classes, it can be hard to make time for creativity in the classroom. With such little time to spare, it can be easy to think ñ does it really make a difference? The short answer is: absolutely. Creative classrooms donít just look different, they feel different. They provide an environment where students are more likely to express their ideas, think outside the box, challenge problems with innovative solutions and most importantly ñ learn faster and more effectively. Here at Canva we speak to hundreds of schools every day and are constantly amazed by the ways they incorporate creative thinking and learning into their classrooms. To help share some of these lessons, we put together this list of 19 unique ways to add more color, creativity and passion to your classroom.
01. Make room for visual reflection
Reflective activities provide students with an opportunity to absorb information more deeply ñ enhancing their creative and contextual understanding of the content. When reflective learning exercises are displayed visually in the classroom, they become of benefit not only to those who share them, but to every student in your class.
02.Integrate more hands-on learning
Benjamin Franklin once said: ìTell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn.î Hands-on learning is a great way to apply a creative twist to traditional course content and engage students on a deeper level.
03. Introduce unconventional learning materials
Text books and timeless lesson plans are a great staple in your teacher tool kit, but introducing more unconventional learning materials can help your students think outside the box and engage more deeply with the lesson.
04.Encourage more color
Color in the classroom doesnít only need to be for early primary school. Challenge yourself to use color in creative and unconventional ways, such as displaying inspiration posters or creating themed ìmoodî corners.
05. Incorporate humour into your classroom
Humour is an important part of creating a positive environment in which creativity can flourish. Draw on pop culture references, use puns and find relevant jokes that make light of the learning process.
Few activities come as naturally to young children as drawing. Whether your childís medium is chalk on a sidewalk or crayons on printer paper, he or she likely enjoys the act of creating art. Along with other forms of expression like dance and storytelling, drawing has numerous developmental benefits. In this blog, we list six reasons to encourage your child to draw at home, in daycare, and in school.
1. Develops Fine Motor Skills
Fine motor skills include any specialized movement of the hands, wrists, and fingers. As an adult, you rely on fine motor skills when you type, drive, or even text. Itís important for your child to develop strong fine motor skills at a young age. Holding and manipulating writing implements represents one of the best ways to improve a childís fine motor skills. Drawing creates immediate visual feedback that changes depending on the tool your child uses and how he or she uses it. This feedback helps your child identify the best ways to produce the desired result.
2. Encourages Visual Analysis
Young children do not yet understand some concepts that you may take for granted, such as distance, size comparison, and textural differences. Drawing provides the perfect opportunity for your child to learn these concepts in a deliberate way. Having a child draw specific items, especially in relationship to each other, can help him or her perform fundamental visual analysis of everyday spaces. To support this kind of drawing at home, prompt your child to draw examples of big and small, rough and smooth, far and near, and so on.
3. Helps Establish Concentration
Because most children enjoy drawing, this activity provides time to establish the concepts of concentration and practice. These concepts will be essential to your childís academic success, even in elementary school. Learning how to observe small details, concentrate on achieving a specific result, and practice tricky tasks helps your child mature.
4. Improves Hand-Eye Coordination
In addition to improving fine motor skills, drawing enables your child to draw connections between what he or she sees and what he or she does. This hand-eye coordination is important in athletic and recreational situations, as well as in academic scenarios such as penmanship lessons. For a hand-eye coordination boost, have your child draw an object while looking at it or copy a drawing that you made.
5. Increases Individual Confidence
As a parent or guardian, you probably love to hear the phrase, ìLook what I made!î When you child has an opportunity to create physical representations of his or her imagination, thoughts, and experiences, he or she gains confidence. Drawing can help your child feel more intrinsic motivation, self-worth, and validity. This affirmation will make him or her more confident in other areas that may not come as naturally as drawing.
6. Teaches Creative Problem Solving
Along with visual analysis and concentration, drawing encourages your child to solve problems creatively. When he or she draws, your child must determine the best way to connect body parts, portray emotions, and depict specific textures. Providing specific drawing tasks, such as creating a family portrait, and talking about your childís color, method, or special choices can help him or her develop stronger problem solving skills over time. To help your child feel motivated to draw and create, use positive reinforcement. You may want to display finished drawings in your childís room or in other areas of your home, include personalized drawings in letters to family members, and praise your child for practice and specific achievements. Encourage your little one to draw throughout his or her childhood to reap all the benefits listed above.
Children are naturally motivated to play. A play-based program builds on this motivation, using play as a context for learning. In this context, children can explore, experiment, discover and solve problems in imaginative and playful ways.
A play-based approach involves both child-initiated and teacher-supported learning. The teacher encourages childrenís learning and inquiry through interactions that aim to stretch their thinking to higher levels.
For example, while children are playing with blocks, a teacher can pose questions that encourage problem solving, prediction and hypothesising. The teacher can also bring the childís awareness towards mathematics, science and literacy concepts, allowing them to engage with such concepts through hands-on learning.
While further evidence is needed on cause and effect relationships between play and learning, research findings generally support the value of good quality play-based early years programs.
Here are 10 ways yoga helps as childís play.
1. It blends learning with play - think yoga ëplaygroundí more than a ëclassroom.í While free-yoga play can quickly descend into chaos, there needs to be a balance of structure and spontaneity as school children arenít likely to respond well to being stuck on their mat after being stuck at a desk. Even when taught within the confines of a classroom, creating a play-based environment where there are different ëstationsí for asana and yoga games, and a quiet circle or corner for stories, relaxation, or meditation, can help a class feel more like a creative exploration. Yoga is a great opportunity for physical activity that builds strength, balance, flexibility, and gross motor skills without competitionóit truly is play at its best.
2. It facilitates language learning. Incorporating Sanskrit into class can help kids with language development as children learn foreign-sounding words in strong association with physical movement, yoga stories, and themed sequences. Combining muscle memory with auditory processing can be an effective way to learn language. And itís fun for the little ones to try to wrap their tongues around the words (Dandayamana Bibhaktapada Paschimottanasana, anyone?)
3. It infuses counting. Counting and even simple arithmetic is easily incorporated into a class through breathing exercises and holding in postures, and young children can get a strong physical sense of time that accompanies a mental count.
4. It involves music (and drama). Music, particularly singing songs, helps make yoga fun and multi-sensory. Setting the tone for a class, music can guide young students through sequences with playful and dramatic cues (but without the pressure of performance), while song lyrics can convey important messages about yoga philosophy, self-acceptance, and connection with people and nature.
5. It encourages social and ecological studies. Through learning various ëanimalí postures, little yogis can go on an imaginary journey around the world, learning about native habitats and ecology in a fun geography lesson. In Tree Pose (Vrksasana), for example, they can form a forest with their classmates. When they assume Lion Pose (Simhasana), they can envision themselves in Africa and feel the might of a lion inside themselves (great for self-esteem).
6. It promotes holistic (mind, body, spirit) learning. Yoga provides a vehicle for children to learn with their whole bodies, engaging the senses and creating awareness of the mind-body-spirit connection. When a kidís yoga class involves storytelling, games, music, asana, and mindfulness, it truly becomes an immersive, holistic experience. It caters to all learning stylesóthereís no better way to learn.
7. It brings less stress, more calm. This one is as obvious for kids as it is for adultsóthe ability to calm and center yourself in class translates to everyday life. For school children, this helps with exams, performances, and the daily rush of overscheduled and overstimulated lives.
8. It improves focus and builds confidence. Concentration, on breathing, asana, and even playful yoga games again translates off the mat. Because yoga is non-competitive and encourages inner reflection, it helps kids to know that their confidence comes from within themselves, ready whenever they need it.
9. It teaches resilience. Some postures arenít easy, especially for young kids, but by teaching them in a play-based class without pressure, students are taught that it is ok (even fun!) to ëfail.í This resilience helps them overcome challenges at school and in life.
10. It cultivates empathy. A good kidsí yoga class encourages self-acceptance, even in failure. It teaches and shows how we are all connected as beings and individuals, helping children learn to feel empathy for others who struggle just like them. This valuable lesson has the power to prevent bullying in our schools. When yoga flows with kidsí innate curiosity, imagination, and self-belief, learning truly becomes childís play.
