ASHRAYA CRECHES REPORT FOR THE QUARTER APRIL TO JUNE 2016
During the months of April and May the children in the crèches were preparing to start their summer vacations and also join formal schools.
The crèches were closed for a two week summer break.
Happy and Sad Moment
The month of May was mixed with happy and sad emotions. Many children were leaving and an equal number were joining as well.
The older children left us with a happy note. The parents thanked Ashraya and the teachers for doing a commendable job. They appreciated the efforts of the teachers in enabling a positive and stimulating environment in the crèches and allowing the child to learn and develop through a holistic approach. The children gain good nutrition, hygiene habits and discipline in daily activities. Overall this year we had 144 children join regular schools from al the crèches .
New admissions are accepted in the month of June. ( Children are 3-5 years of age ). Applications are screened for the appropriate age and criteria and admissions are finalized. This year we have enrolled 158 new children. Currently we have a total of 206 children in all the creches.
The first two weeks the crèches function for half day to allow the children settle down. Third week onwards the crèches are functioning for the fll day as the children have settled down. The teachers make the children play with toys and sing rhymes to distract the children.
All the children get a nutritious meal in the afternoon. The first lessons taught are on personal hygiene – washing hands before a meal, eat neatly without spilling etc
Regular doctor’s visits were started.
