Sound Foundation For Life

The Early Years Of A Child's Life Constitute The Most Significant Period In Life, Because This Is The Stage When A Sound Foundation Is Laid For The Overall Development Of The Individual.

Toddlers are active and curious learners from birth, able to lead their own learning within the context of close and supportive responsive adults. The preschool age is the most impressionable age in one’s life. The rate of development at this stage is more rapid since 50% of a child’s brain develops in the first four years. To aid their development to the fullest, the pedagogy for children is specialised with the following:

Child-Centric Approach

No one understands children like we do. We certainly know that the formative years of a child’s life are of utmost importance for development, which is why at Mother’s Pride, our child-centric approach ensures the perfect holistic development at this tender age. We let children ‘Be’ themselves. They are given the freedom to take their own decisions, discover their own areas of interest and dwell smoothly with the learning process!

Perfect Exposure

At Mother's Pride, we not only believe in imparting education of different concepts but also emphasize on inculcating life skills. The teachers nurture the talents of our tiny tots by giving them the perfect exposure through physical activities, stage programmes, music, dance, art and craft. Through the right exposure, the aim of building confidence and self esteem among students is successfully achieved.


Another major area of focus for laying a sound foundation for students is to ensure development of positive-self concept. The children during all times must know that, ‘I-CAN’ is always more powerful than ‘IQ’. They are nurtured in such a way that they can feel competent to do anything they want independently and adequately. The castle of love indeed ensures the ‘Feel Good and Feel Smart’ feeling at all times!

Research And Development

With increasing numbers of children attending preschool, it is vitally important that the latest research be made available to guide the development of practice which can shape these young minds. Being one of the first preschools in India with a Research and Development department, we ensure to be updated with new revelations in the child psychology.
In an endeavour to blossom the personalities of the little ones and to give them an opportunity to develop at their own pace & comfort zone, we provide an ideal stimulating environment for the children. The basic ingredients of this Stimulating Environment include:

  • Opportunities for Stable relationships and interactions with sensitive and responsive adults.
  • A focus on play-based activities and routines which allow children to take the lead in their own learning.
  • Support for communication and language development.
  • Opportunities to be physically active and creative.
The approach and methodology is practiced for activities in the following domains of development:

Physical & Motor Development

The childhood of every Prideen should be no less than a carnival of good memories, love and enjoyment and we, at Mother’s Pride ensure they get ample opportunities to run, play and simply be themselves! Natural growth occurs best when children have lots of fun. And, all that fun happens at our splash pool, rain dance, doll house and the most colourful play area.

Key areas in Physical & Motor Development:
  • Proper Growth (Monitoring Height & Weight of Children)
    To make them stronger & sharper, a balanced diet is a must. Our in house kitchen helps provide hygienic and nutritious baby friendly food which is tasted by the incharges first, then served to the little ones.
  • Development of Gross Motor Skills
    Gross motor skills mean developing control over the movements of the large muscles of the body. Activities like walking, running, swinging dancing, etc ensure that the students can get a good control over their body. Prideens also love their energetic taekwondo sessions wherein they learn perseverance with their kicks and punches. While, they enhance their flexibility during the peaceful yoga time. We also organise an annual Sports Day wherein our budding sportsmen participate in different competitions which include racing, rabbit jump, etc.
  • Development of Fine Motor Skills

    Fine motor skills mean developing control over the movements of finer muscles, particularly finger muscles and hand-eye coordination. Activities like art & craft which include drawing, colouring, pasting as well as paper folding, thumb printing, pattern making, clay moulding and beading ensure a control over their fingers and also attain a perfect hand-eye coordination in a fun way.

Intellectual & Cognitive Development

The IQ of a child just doesn't depend on the genes alone, but the opportunities he/she gets to use his mind. Children between the age of 2.5 to 5 years are at a stage of cognitive development when their thinking is governed by their perception and they learn through first hand experience of the environment. Children at Mother’s Pride are given opportunities to learn how to be analytical so that they can successfully deal with life situations.

Key areas in Intellectual & Cognitive Development:
  • Sensory Development
    The development of the five senses, i.e, seeing, hearing, touch, smell and taste is basic to the process of knowing and understanding. The more varied and extensive the sensory experiences, the broader will be the child’s base for forming ideas. Our sound boxes, touch & sniff boxes, audio-visual aids, smell tray and tasting kits help the Prideens get a grip on all five senses with ease.
  • Problem Solving and Reasoning
    Who doesn’t love puzzles and block towers? At our intellectual development centre, the children learn through an integrated approach with our self designed teaching tools. They are encouraged to find solutions to diverse challenges such as solving picture puzzles, building a serration tower using their own logic, learning tens and units of mathematics through a ‘Ganit Mala’, etc.
  • Development of Basic Concepts

    For holistic development, it is crucial that different concepts are clear to the students. They should be able to observe, discriminate and categorise different objects in their environment and progress from ‘perception bound reasoning’ to ‘logical reasoning’. To achieve this, we host specials days that introduce a particular concept to the students, such as, ‘Colour Blue Day’, ‘My Favourite Cartoon Day’, ‘Introduction to shape Triangle day’ or ‘Introduction to numbers’ as a part of development of prenumber concept. Different activities are conducted on these days to help them match, identify, name, compare and classify the objects. We also follow a monthly theme which are an amalgamation of all these concepts.

Language Development

What good is knowledge that cannot be expressed! Language learning provides the foundation for all later learning. By the time children enter pre-school, they are already using a language at home. Mother’s Pride gives them the right experiences and environment to increase their vocabulary steadily and rapidly.

Key areas in Language Development:
  • Development of Listening Skills
    We organise a circle time as a part of our daily schedule as well as conduct story-telling sessions and show the students, cartoon movies to develop their listening skills. During these sessions they also learn sound discrimination such as ‘voices of different animals’ or the sound of clapping, etc. To help them develop an ear for phonics, we conduct many activities using our our phonic card box.
  • Development of Vocabulary related of Body, Home and Environment
    The children are indulged in fun conversations and action rhymes to introduce them with the vocabulary related to their body, home and environment. Picture reading cards, role play and dramatization are also used as a medium to enhance their vocabulary when it comes to the socio-emotional scenario.
  • Development of Oral Expression
    Free conversation is the first activity after welcome and arrival activities. Children have a lot to express about what happened at their homes after they left school the day before. They are given absolute freedom to share their experiences and talk about anything they want. This way they learn to create sentences and use correct grammar. Show and tell is yet another activity which enhances their oral expression.
  • Development of Reading Readiness
    Here is when our specially designed curriculum books come into picture. Through the visuals in the books, the children learn to identify objects as well as situations. Special introduction to letters activities are also conducted so that they can gradually identify letters and words mentioned in the book.
  • Development of Writing Skills

    Before children write, they need experience in handling crayons and pencils. Thus, initially, they are indulged in drawing and colouring activities wherein they develop the skills of making controlled visual motor movements. Later on, they move on to joining dots, tracing, copying forms and making patterns similar to the letters of the alphabet.

Socio – Emotional Development

Each child has his/her own unique ‘Personality’ which is the outcome of inheritance, social/cultural groups, different sorts of interactions, regular appreciation and exposure. Mother's Pride provides the right kind of peer group which forms the learning ground for the child about right behaviour, friendship, sharing.

Key areas in Socio-Emotional Development:
  • Development of Positive Self Concept and Qualities of Initiative Independence and Leadership.
    This is achieved by creating a sense of individuality in them through name cards or even celebrating birthdays in school. Qualities of leadership are gained when they are given responsibilities such as maintaining a straight line. In group activities, they also take on the lead role of reciting a story or while playing a game.
  • Development of Good Personal Habits
    We regularly conduct story-telling sessions and puppet play that carry relevant messages of good habits. Picture cards of good and bad habits are also used to educate the children. As a part of the routine, they are asked to wash their hands before meals, visit the toilet during breaks, organise play material back in the racks after playing, etc.
  • Development of the Self-Confidence
    As a part of the confidence building process, we organise many activities and events such as recitation competitions, fancy dress, fashion show, role play, class presentations and appreciation day. When they get an opportunity to perform in front of an audience, it automatically increases their confidence level.
  • Development of ability to respect the feelings of others and relate with adults
    During the circle time, the students are indulge in interactions with their peers and teachers. They get a chance to freely express themselves, listen to others and exchange opinions. Their inquisitive minds are also addressed as the teachers are always willing to provide them with all answers and listen to their queries patiently. Lunch time is also a great way to encourage bonding between the peers as they learn to share their meals. We also believe that children’s curiosity and interests are stimulated when they interact with people, places, communities and the environment around us. To achieve this, we take them for picnics and excursions.
  • Development of attitude of care towards the environment
    Our aim at Mother’s Pride is to create responsible global citizens. To become so, they need to be environmentally conscious as well. We believe that building a connect with nature at this age will go a long way in ensuring a sustainable environment. Thus, they often go for nature walks where they learn about the nature and also participate in tree plantation drives.

Development Of Creative Expression & Aesthetic Appreciation

Each child has inborn creativity. All we need to do is give them encouragement and opportunities for free play, particularly dramatic and constructive play which will foster creativity in them. We provide children with a stimulating environment where they can discover their talents like dancing, art and craft, music, clay moulding etc. Aesthetic Appreciation is a form of development wherein children are encouraged to appreciate their surroundings and also verbalise their appreciation about whatever they like around them. This way a positive energy can be channelized in them, which can help them in their future endeavours.

Key areas in Development of Creative Expression:
  • Creative Expression through Art
    ‘In every work of art, the artist himself is present’. Art is one of the best ways to explore the inborn creativity of the little minds. We organise many art and craft activities for the students wherein they bring out their most creative sides. A few of them include: Drawing, Colouring, Paper Folding and Clay Moulding.
  • Creative Movement
    To let the children feel free to express through body movements and expressions, they are indulged in dance & music sessions. Rhythmic movement such as foot stamping, finger clicking, etc, also help the children loosen up and become more free with their movements.
  • Creative Thinking
    Every child is a dreamer with his/her own world full of imaginations and wonder. We know the value of these imaginations as it is one of the best ways to enhance creative development. During free play, in the Doll house, the little ones create their own stories as to how they want their life to be or how to address a particular situation they are put in. They effectively learning about the 5Ws and 1H through diverse fun activities.
Each day is planned so as to reflect a balance of individual and group activities, outdoor and indoor activities, active and quiet activities, free and structured / guided activities and activities to foster all aspects of development. On the whole, our aim at Mother’s Pride, is to blossom a child's personality by making the most of the formative years in an ideal learning environment.
