Pebbles Preschool:Visionaries in Preschool Education

A kid reciting English rhymes in front of guests is a usual scene in Indian families. It is also very entertaining to watch the little ones completing their task in front of everyone while staring at the roof or drawing indiscernible patterns on the floor with their toe. Then everyone would appreciate the kid, but no one would check whether the kid knows the meaning of what she/he just sung. Kids are very fast in copying others and that is the reason why they learn the rhyme without even bothering about the meaning of it, which is evidently an underutilization of kids natural talent to grasp new things. This is where preschools can make a difference by providing ample early childhood education to the kids. "Kids are very curious to learn new things, especially those who are below five years. If we can utilize this curiosity for an academic purpose, then it can turn their life around in a positive manner," opines Kennedy Nesamoney, Founder, Pebbles Preschools.
When Kennedy came back to Chennai after completing his education from Africa, his city was still contemplating about the need of preschools in the society. Even though Chennai had bunch of day care centres, a typical preschool that caters to the overall development of kids below five years was a distant dream. Kennedy, who himself has seen how kids abroad are nurtured through various activities, did not have to speculate more about establishing his first venture. In 2000, Pebbles Preschool became a reality in Chennai. In the long journey of 14 years, Kennedy never advertised Pebbles in any newspapers or elsewhere, however, the admission to the preschools were always full.
Why Pebbles is Special?
The city of Chennai is known for its hot and humid weather. To cope up with such tough conditions and make the students feel comfortable inside the playschool, the management had air-conditioned all the classrooms in the establishment way back in 2000. By doing so, Pebbles became the first preschool in Chennai, with air-conditioned classrooms. At Pebbles, the classrooms are fitted out with everything to the child's scale, allowing them to be independent of adults. The classrooms are large enough with lots of space to move around. Along with that, the chairs and tables inside the playschool are randomly arranged, which again create a homely feeling inside the kid's mind. They have also maintained a healthy child – teacher ratio, thereby ensuring more care and individual attention to the child.
Teacher's skill plays a strong role in influencing the child's power to grasp and learn concepts. At Pebbles Preschool, they train the teachers in the best possible way and ensure that they are completely prepared for their responsibilities. However, handling the kids in real scenarios is much tougher than earning educational qualifications and attending trainings. Kids need more caring and warm approach. In the classrooms of Pebbles, one can clearly see that magical approach with massive assistance from the highly experienced support staff. Along with that, the management regularly conducts in-service trainings and information about the latest trends in early childhood education and care as well.
Even though, Pebbles Preschools have adequate infrastructure and teachers, everything is build upon their extra-ordinary curriculum. It helps children to achieve complete school readiness in all areas of academic and social learning. The in-house curriculum focuses on all facets of a child's growth and development including Linguistic, Physical, Socio- emotional and cognitive and Creative areas. By blending nurturing, learning and fun together, they ensure that their students are constantly stimulated, constantly interested, constantly learning and constantly growing.
For this the School offers an atmosphere that is warm, friendly and full of love, which helps in bringing out happy and healthy children.
At Pebbles, every kid knows the meaning of 'Twinkle twinkle little star.' If someone from those little chairs stand up to explain the science behind the twinkling stars, do not be surprised because, that is how the nurturing of next generation is happing inside Pebbles, since the last 14 years.
