Let love grow.. Happy 72nd Independence Day

We hit the news again.. The ‘ New Normal ‘ in Early Years Education.

A daunting task, unlike with older children who are capable of handling it independently. Preschool teachers will need to rely on parents to ensure that the learning they are providing is accessible and flown through at home. In conversation with the Director of Footsteps Preschool, Fazra Irfan on the effectiveness and success of their method of distance learning with preschoolers, here’s what she had to say. Read more

Children must wear a face mask, stop the spread of covid-19 among children

The pandemic has brought forward many new norms and virtual classrooms have become an essential part of social structure.
Early learners are the most difficult age group to adopt this change from school to learning at home.
Many thanks to everyone who contributed towards this🤩

I was on the look out for a play based learning facility to enroll Ariella in and I was hunting for places that took in kids before 2 years as I wanted her to have that exposure before #2 came along. Here are a few reasons why I chose @footsteps_preschool .

            • The facility has a low student to teacher ratio enabling each child to get individualized attention.
            • It’s a stones throw away from our residence in Kohuwala meaning I could avoid morning traffic and not have to wake her up super early to be in school.
            • It has a wide open space (something that Ella is used to) lots of toddler friendly toys,sensory activities and play based learning activities that are familiar to her. 4.They also promote independence as with the Montessori method which is also something that’s familiar to her.
            • The teachers are kind and caring and give you a progress update of everything that happened during the day. (It helps if your paranoid like I am).
            • We couldn’t have picked better in Colombo for our daughter and we are happy with our choice. Annnddddd we will wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone

Following the Government directive, we are happy to announce the commencement of the daycare from the 11th of January 2021.
Please note, as per the regulations imposed by the health department, we are allowed to accommodate only 50% capacity at a time. We have therefore limited the class size and divided our classes into 2 groups to attend the preschool every other day.
