Hats Off to New Age Teachers - Moms

 Usually on teacher's day, I fondly recall the beautiful memories of my school and my amazing teachers. But this year I will dedicate it to parent's who faced with lock-down and closure of schools, took the role of a teacher and brought about wonderful learning outcome in children.Now I really understand why all believe that a mother is she who can take the place of all others but whose place no one else can take. How true! I realize that given the challenge, moms can be great teachers. All they needed was a bit of a guidance from My Giggle Garden.

I am amazed to see their innovative ideas which can put educationists to shame. Be it teaching to write, read or understand a concept; parent's came up with great ideas which I have decided to implement in our teaching from next term.

Because of the wonderful contribution from parents, we at Giggle Garden are ready for re-opening anytime the covid19 pandemic is tackled. We know the parents have followed the curriculum exactly like we would have done in school. Precisely we are bit ahead in our academic year this time. The regular submission of assignments has ensured that I know exactly how much each child has learned at home. 

Thanking all the Giggler's parents who handled homeschooling so well. We teacher's couldn't have done it any better. Hats off to you all. 

Sharing some pictures with you all to walk down the memory lane.

The Banyan Tree Drama By Nursery Students

The story of the drama is as interesting as the story behind the children who performed on stage in this drama. 

Every child who performed in the drama came with a challenge. One of them hated costumes and even during festivities his parents had to compromise and dress him up in T shirt and jeans. It was amazing to see this shy boy perform as a banyan tree. Last year one of them had cried and was scared of stage, but in a year we could see the excitement in him to perform and eagerly looking forward to the applause. 

If we do not give up and encourage all children will be successful in their own way. As teachers and guides, when we were training children for the drama, we never knew what they would do when we really got them on the stage to perform, but they went way beyond our expectations. 

It is great joy for me to watch all them together - overcoming their challenges. 

Daycare - A Home With Friends

 Today, daycare is a necessity for most working parents. Some of them go through severe guilt, especially if the child is unwilling to stay ...
