Do teachers/ Caregivers at Tiny Town communicate in English with children?

For the first few days, we give more importance to kids getting adjusted to the new environment of school and so we do not hesitate in conversing with the child in a vernacular language, especially of toddler and nursery grade. Once the child gets used to school and the new environment he/she is in, English takes the place of vernacular language gradually. Thus, English becomes the mandatory mode of instruction in school, giving child a comfortable language learning experience.

What teaching methodology is followed at Tiny Town Preschool and day care?

Our unique teaching methodology is a combination of Play way, Project, Montessori and activity based learning techniques. This includes the approach of “Think while playing • Do • Learn”. The curriculum focuses on inquiry-based learning. In order to help facilitate self-directed learning, tiny town is set up with a variety of materials and activities for children to choose from.

The curriculum invites children to hypothesize, theorize, predict, problem solve, construct and document their developing understandings of the world in which they live. Our approach acknowledges the socio-cultural principle that children learn from quality interactions and relationships with people, places and things; exploring and discovering in an affirmative environment.
