Are you a woman with an aptitude for teaching but do not wish to undergo a B.Ed. course? Well, if you have completed 10+2 education and are interested in teaching toddlers in playschools, nursery schools and preschools, then after completing a course of a few month duration you can be on the job! Of course, you should be driven by love and a sense of dedication towards caring for the little ones.
Since the past few years there has been an explosive growth in the number of preschools in all cities of India, since almost all parents want their kids to start-off as early as possible in respect of personality and skills development. The preschools listed in Resources below have a satisfactory accreditation and background as well as well-equipped classrooms and satisfactory play areas. It is also necessary for preschools to employ technology in the class and expose the child to a range of activities like colouring, swimming, exercise, dancing, singing etc.
Institutes impart nursery teacher training…
Nation-wide chains of playschools and nursery schools such as Euro Kids, Treehouse, Kangaroo Kids etc have set up schools to train aspirants who are awarded a diploma on successfully completion of the course as well as a teaching job in their preschools.
It is essential that the aspirant teacher loves children so that she is able to establish a caring bond with them. The training covers the physical, mental and psychological development stages in children. Curriculum includes lesson planning for the kids, conducting activities like music, dance, drama etc. The teachers and staff of the preschool need to create a secure and child-centric environment.
In addition to trained staff, playschools are expected to have sufficient infrastructure, space dedicated to cooking, medical room, child-friendly washrooms, a healthy teacher-student ratio, female attendants, CCTV cameras, personal records of all staff members etc.
