Prekindergarten At Bellwether
Language and Arts
Bellwether children develop literacy through natural exposure, play-based experiences, and expert, tailored instruction.
Our program builds a solid foundation for all four skill areas LSRW (listening, speaking, reading and writing)
Sing and listen to songs, poems, and nursery rhymes
Listen to books and stories read aloud
Distinguish and work with the sounds of letters and words
Start to learn the alphabet and its sounds
Discover written language and develop the fine motor skills for writing
Math is integrated into activities and games the children engage in throughout their day. Students develop their sense of number and quantity, through counting, sorting, classifying, comparing, and matching. From circle time to P.Ed classes, natural opportunities to develop these skills present themselves.
At this stage of development, students need to interact with physical objects and images. In both integrated and dedicated math instruction, students:
Build toward fluency with numbers
Lay the foundation for numerical operations
Observe and learn shapes and their attributes
Gain familiarity with concepts and representations of space and time
Recognize written number
Physical Development and Movement
We are the only school at RS Puram with a well-structured curriculum “ATOM” for Physical Education and with a dedicated team of Physical Educators. We prioritize physical experiences that contribute to children’s motor, sensorial, emotional and intellectual development. Students participate in activities in our dedicated space appropriately equipped for young children to develop balance and coordination.
Students develop their motor skills through:
Different types of movement (e.g., climbing, crawling, rolling)
Coordination and sequencing of movements (yoga, dance)
Balance and awareness of their own bodies in space
Play with objects (e.g., throwing and catching)
Social and emotional Learning
we believe that social emotional learning paves the way for students to succeed in school and in life. SEL begins in preschool and continues throughout students’ education .
Our teachers are trained to help children become aware of their own emotions and begin to regulate them. Our Learning Methodology promotes positive, peaceful behaviours by helping Children to develop self-awareness and self-regulation.
Bellwether’s Curriculum identifies the cognitive developmental milestones of a preschool child.
