Our Activities

Preschool STEM activities keep little ones busy and teach them the basics of STEM they’ll require to succeed later in life. In our view, preschoolers might just be the next best engineer, astronaut, or scientist! We focus and encourage the children to build projects based on their interests. Some of them include growing seeds in a jar, building a zoo, building a bridge, cup phone and coding etc.

Pretend play is intellectually helpful in development of a child’s social skills. When a child is involved in a pretend play, he experiments himself in the social and emotional roles of life. This can let a child experience to walk in somebody else’s shoes and provides the opportunity to identify the adult world. The examples include playing grocery store, doctor’s clinic and Bank Cashier etc.

We have  a wide range of about 900 books in our collection, with more added from time to time. Our books are divided into different categories making it easier for educators and children to select them based on their interests. Our Educators are always there to help children learn and understand through different props and techniques for further developmental procedures.

Singing plays a vital role in a child’s language development. It provides self confidence and encourages a child to communicate with others. Sometimes children even make up their own songs and sing unconsciously while playing. Also, dancing brings motor skills, self expression and helps them to strengthen memory skills. At guide and Grow we have a full hour dedicated to music, singing and dancing. It helps brain  to  stimulate alpha waves and create a sense of calmness in the listener.

Hand puppets help children learn to communicate freely with puppets, gaining more confidence and strength to express themselves in an open way. It provides an opportunity to take control over their world by working out their fears.

Children love art projects, and they’re a great way to foster creativity and develop fine motor skills. Art increases imagination and focus on children’s ability to think. We have a wide variety of tools and accessories to help children make their masterpieces!

Outdoor play  is an important part of early learning. Children familiarize themselves with their natural surroundings, try to explore and have curiosity about what they see.
