Ideally, every Preschool program should be very precise in its approach, since it is aimed at young children who are in their early years, undergoing a constant transition, both physically and psychologically. A good preschool curriculum has the ability to significantly contribute to a child's proper growth and play the significant role of laying a foundation for further learning through a series of supervised experiences. It becomes very crucial that not only the Preschool curriculum that is available but also the educators who would be a part of it understand the purpose of their profile. Eventually, it is the teachers who determine what sorts of activities are best-suited for your child's development. Therefore, a proper preschool program cannot survive without rightfully qualified and trained Teachers.
However, today teaching training has become an increasingly-commercialised sector. Many institutions are handing out teacher preparatory certifications without making sure that their trainees have actually realised the crucial nature of their responsibilities. Teaching continues to be a self-rewarding profession and if only there is a proper training resource that could prepare knowledgeable and responsible educators, emotional and financial satisfaction is guaranteed.
We have taken yet another step in making our approach towards pre-primary education the most comprehensive. We have launched a teacher training course that covers nearly every aspect that is related to preschool education. Being specialists in our field, we realise that the Preparatory course for future Preschool Educators should be modified according to the various needs of young children as their behavioural and educational demands are very different from secondary/senior secondary students.
Our course covers a variety of issues that are an integral part of being a duly qualified Preschool educator. Some of the areas that we stress upon include:
Understanding Child Psychology, especially that of young toddlers who would be stepping out of the familiarity of their homes for the first time, i.e. children in the age-group of 2-4 years
Recognising healthy physical and mental Developmental Patterns in a young child and spotting any aberrations
Decoding a child's Learning Style. This becomes essential in making sure that what is being taught within a classroom is absorbed by the child in the least straining manner
Preparedness for First-aid needs and dealing with children having health issues
Mapping and observing the level of social, academic and emotional progress the child is making.
We make sure that our trainees are capable of addressing every issue the child may have, intellectual or emotional, and are capable of communicating it to the parents. We stress upon this relationship between Early Childhood Educators and Parents, as this forms the basis of providing complete care to the child.
NTT and Future Educators
The efficiency and worthiness of a Pre-school curriculum is directly related to the Educators who are entrusted with teaching the students. Our preschool preparatory program for future teachers consists of a systematic method of innovative training as we realise that it is ultimately the Educators who set the yardstick for any institution concerned with Early Childhood Care. The NTT course is aimed at preparing successful and confident Pre-primary level teachers who stand to gain from our vast experience in this field.
