Why Mothers’ Meet concept was adopted?
Mothers’ Meet is a rapport building session which brings parents and teachers close. Children benefit when the adults around them share common values about child-rearing, communicate with one another and give the children consistent support and guidance.
Research shows that programmes that teach mothers to improve the quality of cognitive stimulation and verbal interaction produce immediate effects on the child’s intellectual development. It is seen that the level of involvement of mothers in the initial years of rearing is high and a mother is always the first teacher to the child, hence it is called “Mothers’ Meet”.
For Nursery, Jr.Kg, and Sr. Kg, Mothers’ Meets are conducted by the Head of the Department along with the class teachers.
The focus is on the activities a Mother can undertake to enhance learning. At times, experts vis-à-vis. Psychologists, Paediatricians, or Dentists are invited to conduct a workshop. A special Mothers’ Meet is conducted once a year on CVP (Chinmaya Vision Programme) on value based education by The Chinmaya Mission.
The dates for the Mothers’ Meet to be held throughout the year is published in the Little Aryans Pre-K Calendar and given to the children in the month of June.
Parents’ orientation programme is held in the first week of June for the parents who have taken admission in Little Aryans Pre-K.
During the orientation programme parents are introduced to the class teachers and other staff members. The school system, the curriculum and other related topics are explained during the parents’ orientation. At times, experts for e.g. Child Psychologists, Paediatricians, and Educators are invited.
