At Podar Prep Preschool, we aim to make learning a joyful and immersive experience. Our guiding light? The National Curriculum Framework 2022 has inspired us to adopt a cutting-edge approach – Toy Pedagogy.
Forget limiting your child’s tactile experiences to just plastic toys. Our Toy Pedagogy embraces various materials, each carefully selected to stimulate your child’s senses and nurture holistic development.
The Power of Sensory Learning
Children learn best when all their senses are engaged. Our toy collection is designed to cater to 7 distinct types of sensory learning:
Hearing (Auditory): From toys that produce melodious tunes to those that replicate the soothing sounds of nature, we encourage children to listen, absorb, and appreciate the world of auditory sensations.
Seeing (Visual): Visual learning comes to life through colourful and captivating toys. These toys ignite children’s imaginations, enhancing their visual perception and creativity.
Touching (Tactile): The world is meant to be touched, and our tactile toys beckon children to explore different textures and surfaces. These encounters help develop their tactile sensitivity and fine motor skills.
Smelling (Olfactory): Scented toys transport children to aromatic adventures, engaging their sense of smell. These olfactory experiences delight and build a deeper connection with the environment.
Body and Movement (Vestibular): Our toys encourage physical activity and play, helping children develop body control, balance, and coordination. They discover the joy of movement.
Body Awareness (Proprioceptive): Understanding one’s body is vital for physical development. Our toys promote activities that build proprioceptive awareness, fostering a sense of body confidence and spatial orientation.
Awareness About Sensation (Interoceptive): The ability to recognize and respond to internal sensations like hunger, thirst, and discomfort is crucial. Our toys subtly introduce children to these sensations, enhancing their self-awareness.
Why Does Toy Pedagogy Matter?
Toy Pedagogy doesn’t just mean play; it’s an intentional approach to early childhood education. Children naturally acquire essential life skills through play, including problem-solving, decision-making, and communication. The impact of early childhood experiences lasts a lifetime. Toy Pedagogy, rooted in sensory learning, primes children for success. It fosters curiosity, creativity, and a lifelong love for learning.
So, when your child engages with our diverse range of toys, they’re not just playing but embarking on a journey of self-discovery, exploration, and holistic growth. Welcome to the world of Toy Pedagogy at Podar Prep Preschool, where curious minds find their playground for playful learning.
