                                           Global Giving Report  Quarter April-June 2017

 

April and May 2017 

In April the children at the crèches are preparing to leave, either to join formal school or for the holidays.

The teachers spend the time interacting with the parents, guiding them with admission process to the formal schools, preparing the children for the interview/admission tests etc. 

 During this month applications for new admissions are received in all the crèches.

The admissions are scrutinized to check age of the children and  identify income levels  to  ensure that the children  belong to below poverty families. Parents are interviewed and informed about the rules etc; and the admissions are finalized.  A photo of the child and all relevant information of the parents is noted. 

The regular attendance dips as the older siblings get their summer holidays and many families go to visit grandparents etc.

 In the month of May the crèches were closed for 2 weeks summer break.

 

June 2017

  The crèches reopened for the new academic year on June 1st 2017.

All the crèches reported admissions of 35-40 children. As the children were just starting play school and leaving their parents for the first time the first week is chaotic with all of them crying and restless. Teachers distract them with toys, games, song and dance. Also the crèches work for half day for the first two weeks after re opening-the children are sent home after lunch.

 By mid June full day schedule starts where the children have learning, rhymes, story telling , both indoor and outdoor games, lunch, nap and activity time . The day starts at 9 am and finishes by 4 pm.  

 

Parents Teacher Meeting 

At the last parent teacher meeting for the year the parents thanked the staff and management for providing good care, nutrition and a stimulating environment for their children. They expressed their happiness at how well their children had blossomed after coming to the crèche. They also thanked the staff for the counseling and guidance on health and nutrition, disciplining and other parenting tips.

 The efforts of the teachers are rewarded when the children get admission in regular schools effortlessly.

 The parents were also given information  about RTE (Right To Education) . They are informed   about the process and   details of getting the RTE for their children. The parents also shared   information they had got. It was an interactive session.

These parents in turn refer other families and children to the crèches. 

 Health:

  The nourishing mid day meal and   ragi malt  has benefited  the children immensely, weight ,height and immunization is monitored regularly  by the doctor who visits.      

 In the month of April the doctor suggested that  Vitamin A tablets be given  to all the children in Banasawadi crèche. Ashraya purchased the tablets and the teachers have been instructed by the doctor to give the medicines regularly for a month.  

 Volunteers:  

A regular volunteer, Monica used her creative skills and taught the children a wide variety of craft and art at the Indiranagar crèche.

 The crèches are a “safe haven” for these children as their mothers are assured they are in a safe , stimulating place and they can pursue a job which will bring in additional income to the family.
