Update on the creches

The creches are running very efficiently and our creche teachers counsel the parents and the family and motivate them to encourage their children to pursue education. The outcome is most fulfilling as 100% of our kids, when they reach the age of four, are put into formal schooling by the parents and family. This is an important indicator of the quality of work done by our creche teachers and the impact of the Creches project on the weaker section of the society. 50% of our children have got into Government English medium schools, which is remarkable!!

We organized a Teachers' training workshop at our premises in Indiranagar, for our Creche teachers. It was conducted by Ms.Nandini Prakash, Secretary of the Indian Institute of Montessori Studies, who has many years of experience in teaching Montessori style and working with children

The objective of the workshop was to:

1.To improve their teaching methodologies and skills

2. To help better understand children and their needs

3. To help manage issues relating to childrens' behavioural problems

It was a whole day's workshop and our teachers enjoyed the workshop and thought it was a very good experience as it gave them a platform to voice their thoughts and discuss various issues relating to the field of teaching.Overall, it was a wonderful learning experience for all of them.

Banaswadi creche- The compound wall at the creche deserved a transformation as it was looking too bare and simple for a fun-place where kids were having a great time. So we decided to get a professional to make a colourful and bright Warli painting, an exotic form of Indian Art, on the wall. Warli folk paintings are the painting of Maharashtra and Warli is the name of the largest tribe found in the northern outskirts of Mumbai, in Western india. We also had an increase in the number of admissions once the painting on the wall was made. Also the parents and the families are so proud to have their children going to the most attractive and hygienic creche in the area.

We have been having committed volunteers working with us in all our creches and they have been of immense support to the programme.
