Fun and energy seems to be a child’s nature. Keeping this virtue in mind, preschool franchises often do their yearly calendar to justify the spirit. For preschoolers it is fun to go to school but it is more fun when they get to travel and enjoy the spirit of fresh air. Teachers take due care and extend their support to children as they enjoy the fun rides and games at a field trip event. The field trip can be a nearby place or a mall so that the children are aware of happenings.

The most important thing during these trips is communication especially about the date, place and time. Timelines are well adhered and the mode of transport is also communicated in a formal write up to parents. As per the type of trip, fees may be charged or not charged and a form needs to be filled up. Extra information of any food or dust allergy may be communicated to the teacher verbally and written so that the teachers or helpers can take extra care.

A field trip to a play house can be sure fun. Children love to enjoy the freedom and the doll house and the stacking of blocks. Though such games are played by them at home or school, it is still important for them to re-do this in a different place amidst a different crowd. A trip to a garden can also be an impressive idea to tell the children about botany in their own way i.e. to make them understand about part of trees, the different shades of green, the textures of plants, barks, wood and also the uses of plant. The teachers usually are trained at outdoor class explanations which are well taken by children.

A supermarket mall trip is very exciting for them. The arrangement is made with an event company or directly with the supermarket to allow them to partake in such an event. Children are made aware of chip packs, other edible items and the colors and packaging fascinate them. They are curious and in awe of the experience and discipline are well followed in counting them back or alighting from the bus. The simple instructions given by the teacher also promotes self development in them.

A trip to the nearby park with amusements is also a good way for a short picnic. Snacks and eats are thrilling and picnic songs in all languages are loved by children. The key idea is to let them participate and know about other events along with helping them apply their interactive skills when they go outdoors. It is surely a pleasure to see them happy when they are back and they look forward for a narration the next day. Field trips build their confidence, social skills and improve their awareness.

Allied Activities For Preschool

Contact Banner

While starting a preschool franchise may be your decision, it is also intelligent to use your space during non hours of the preschool timings. This is lucrative and one could also ask the franchise if they have other options in allied activities related to children. Evenings are times where the children love to mingle and learn a few things. Parents are also keen that the children do not become couch potatoes and hence they look out for evening classes which hones the child into other talents.

Preschool crafts are a wonderful way to help the children learn new ideas in craft. One could seek the services of a senior artist or an able guide who can actually teach a child to do paper folding or simple craft items. Accompanied with a merit certificate these classes are lucrative and also good for image building. One could also use the space during non school hours for yoga classes for kids and also help them learn a few things in pranayama.

Allied activities in preschool also relate to dramatics and using the services of a learned artist is the key. Children love expressions, masquerades, make up, drama and enacting epic stories or fable characters helps them to go on stage. Many parents would like to enroll their children in drama classes and games along with the same are also a relaxing option. Drawing and art classes are very common in India. This helps the child to gather the skill of using pencil and sketching which formally begins just with coloring via pastels.

While using the place for allied activities it must be understood that the original concept of franchise must not be alienated. With respect to banner, boards, advertisements there must not be a clash or variation in interest. Dance classes for toddlers help the child to focus on their talent and learn new nuances in the area. Choreographers and also artists in the field of contemporary Odissi or traditional Bharat Natyam offer their valuable teaching to coach young children.

While offering any allied activity, there must be due diligence paid to the security and safety of the child. A professional hand book and in-out register surely helps during an emergency. A badge and professional hand outs are the best way to communicate to maintain classroom management in each class. A proper book of accounts, muster and other details must be maintained to avoid chaos and this ensures compliance.
