Market to Market
Having participated in numerous teacher training programmes and workshops, the staff at Sunshine Day Care and Preschool have learnt to initiate programmes for the kids without depending on the trustees to do so. Adopting a bottom-up approach the staff interactions with the kids on what they would enjoy most and talking to the mothers on how best their children can benefit has allowed them to present creative and innovative programmes.
A giant leap forward for all stakeholders!
A Children’s Market held recently is one of one such activity. Supported by their mothers, the kids proudly displayed seasonal fruits and vegetables, coconuts and village greens, all grown in their back garden. Visitors from the community, Local Government office and Pre-school Education Bureau participated with great enthusiasm, buying from the kids the organically grown produce. The kids learnt the production line and a bit of the economics in vegetable cultivation, which is also a part of the preschool syllabus.
The introduction of playfulness is an important factor in child development and we, at The Sunshine Charity have consistently strived to make creativity an integral part of our programmes. We have seen the impact of these programmes, which over the years have helped the kids to be playful and enjoy their day imaginatively.
