Learning through play is a significant feature of our Early Years Education programme. We see play as a powerful learning experience, engaging the interest of children and enhancing their creativity and imagination. This is the start of the child’s learning adventure. In order to bridge the gap between the school and community and to show-case our teaching methods and the students’ work in different learning areas, The City School Chiniot Branch organised an Open Day. The event acquainted the parents and the community with our Early Years Education (EYE) programme that encompasses the formative years providing a strong foundation for the child’s growth and development.
Seven learning areas were set up, along with activity tables, at the school with the collaborative effort of the teachers.
- Station 1: Creative Development
- Station 2: Physical Development
- Station 3: Communication and Language
- Station 4: Literacy
- Station 5: Problem Solving, Reasoning and Numeracy
- Station 6: Personal Social and Emotional Development
- Station 7: Knowledge and Understanding of the World
Parents were highly impressed by the display of the learning areas, students’ projects related to the subject area and the hands-on activities performed by the students. They complimented the young students on their confidence. According to them it was the first time they had attended such an event in Chiniot.
The school also offered entertainment in the form of interesting activities for the visitors. Parents and community members thronged the campus and enjoyed the vibrant activities in and outside the classrooms. Management, teachers, and parents gave their views and impressions about the significance of learning experiences in the early years that help in children’s personal, social, and emotional development. Parents voiced their confidence in The City School as it truly caters to the learning needs of the children.
The turnout of the parents and community was quite encouraging, who left quite pleased and satisfied.
