Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up.
Have you ever watched a toddler play with his crayons? He looks at them from all angles, probably tests them a little and then scribbles on the paper in front of him.
He doesn’t care what shape it makes neither does he confine himself to the boundaries of the pre-drawn lines. There is such freedom, such spontaneity in his work. Well, that is exactly what Picasso was talking about!
We often think of playschools as just a place for children to have fun before they join a mainstream school, where life is not the same. It is thus a broad belief that the formal education system is where there is little to no room for creativity.
This makes the role of playschools so much more important than we actually think as they shoulder the responsibility of nurturing creativity in the early years of life. Hence choosing the right playschool for your child has a much deeper and lasting effect on his/her future.
That’s where institutions like Oi Playschools come in – ensuring that each child receives the right amount of stimulation and encouragement at this tender age.
Oi Playschools – Helping Children Learn Without Boundaries
Launched in the year 2010 in Jubilee Hills, Hyderabad, today, Oi Playschool stand amongst the most trusted playschools in the country. With over 49 centres spread across Hyderabad & Bangalore, and no compromise on quality, the group has been recognized as the ‘Fastest Growing Playschool Chain in India’.
What sets Oi Playschool apart is that their entire system is directly based on a child’s developmental patterns.
90% of a child’s brain development happens during the first 2000 days of a child’s life. It is during this crucial time that new neural pathways are formed, which increases the child’s ability to learn faster and understand better.
Sparkz – Let Your Child Experience Real Learning
Oi’s custom designed curriculum – Sparkz, provides children with a specifically intended hands-on learning experience, and is constantly upgraded & developed by its expert R&D team.
Sparkz can be visualized as a wheel of learning, with the child at the centre and the outer & inner spokes indicating learning outcomes and facilitators, respectively. Sparkz encourages a child’s individuality in an atmosphere that feeds intelligence, fuels passion and nourishes the mind.
Children learn best through play, and Oi seems to understand this perfectly. They create realistic, interactive & stimulating learning experiences for children, allowing them to learn without making a conscious effort. For instance, a lesson about birds and animals will also include a trip to see them in action!
We can’t think of a better way to learn, can you?
Although the curriculum does include everything that a child needs to excel, on transitioning into a mainstream educational institution, Oi Playschools aren’t just about academics, but so much more. Studies have shown that Emotional Quotient or EQ is just as important a factor as IQ when it comes to success in life.
At Oi Playschool, global learning goes hand in hand with traditional values to help every child bloom naturally. The adult to child ratio is 1:8 and teachers are trained to encourage appropriate social, emotional, physical, and intellectual development. The curriculum is also tailored to meet each child’s individual needs. Besides these, top-class facilities ensure that the children are kept safe, secure and comfortable at all times.
