Covid 19 has unfortunately normalized home-schooling for children. Parents, teachers, and children have had to make major adjustments to get adapted to this model of education. While some got used to it many others are yet struggling to bridge the learning gap that has resulted from this situation.
But those attending the online classes for preschoolers at Little Red Hen Preschool and early years accomplished their learning milestones because of the manner in which the classes were conducted. Here is a brief of the home based learning activities for preschoolers which are covered in our program:
1. Weekly videos
Parents play as important a role as a teacher in imparting knowledge to a child in this form of education. Parental support can make the whole learning experience all the more beneficial for a child. Here’s are a few ways in which a parent can help:
- Ensuring there is a distraction-free spot at home that is equipped with adequate lighting, a spot for a charger, and headphones.
- Planning your child’s time efficiently so that there is a routine in place.
- Identifying which learning style is best suited for your child- Visual, auditory, reading/writing, and kinesthetic.
- Supporting the teachers in making learning fun.
- Connect with the teacher on a regular basis to discuss your child’s strengths and weaknesses.
With the home-based learning program at Little Red Hen Preschool and Early Years, parents can reach out to teachers for support for any concern whatsoever. The parents are educated on the methodologies and the dos and don’ts in the form of customized learning videos that are sent to them by the school on a weekly basis.
2. Resource Links
With everyone stuck indoors, the workload has multiplied. It has become rather challenging for parents to divide their time between household chores, office responsibilities, and parenting duties. It is practically impossible for a parent to keep their child engaged throughout the day. That’s where learning resources come into use. But parents before zeroing in on a learning resource a parent has to bear in mind a few factors:
- Which learning goal does the resource cater to?
- Is it going to be interesting for your child?
- Is it age-appropriate?
- How much screen time does the activity involve?
- Does it require you to assist your child?·
- Is this the best way to teach your child what is intended to be taught?
The home-based learning program at Little Red Hen Preschool and Early years takes care of all your child’s learning needs. Hence resource links are identified and shared with parents keeping in mind the basis of your child’s requirement.
3. Monitoring and Guidance
A positive parent-teacher relationship immensely benefits a child. A parent’s active participation and interaction with the teacher encourages a child to work harder to accomplish their goals. At any time if a parent is encountering difficulty in making their child learn a particular concept they can seek assistance from the teacher and vice-versa. Hence this ensures that the goals are accomplished without a doubt.
The teachers of the home-based learning program at Little Red Hen Preschool and Early years are open to connecting with the parents. Hence parents feel free to touch base with them about any concerns that they may have in relation to their child’s learning.
4. Weekly Objectives
It is only possible to accomplish long-term learning milestones if short-term goals are in place. Every week the learning is guided by a set of objectives. In this manner, the child doesn’t miss out on what’s meant to be learned at a particular stage.
5. Online and offline learning
Online learning has resulted in children spending large chunks of their time glued to the screen. As a result of which it impacts their eyesight. At Little Red Hen Preschool & Early Years the learning is structured online and offline.
6. The best learning kit
At Little Red Hen Preschool and Early Years, our learning partners are Kreedo. They have proactivity toy boxes and exercise books that help impart age-appropriate learning. The material is designed to enhance literacy, numeracy, and sensorial skills.
7. Library Books
The online home-based learning program at Little Red Hen Preschool and Early Years was designed to ensure that learning must not stop. That was one objective of this program, but yet another one was that reading must not stop. To ensure this the parents are permitted to utilize the service of the library and exchange books as and when needed to keep alive or inculcate the love for reading in a child.
8. Learning kits exchange
There is an interaction between parents and teachers on a fortnightly basis. And during this meetup activity sheet for the upcoming weeks, upcoming lessons are handed over to the parents.
Covid-19 has impacted every aspect of the world at large.

Hence the home-based learning program at Little Red Hen Preschool and Early Years is a tailor-made solution to deal with this problem. One batch successfully graduated and another one is in progress. You can ensure the same for your child admissions for 2021-22 are now open.
