The Virtual Play Dates @ Rhythms aim at holistic development of children by nurturing inherent curiosity for learning and foster a spirit of scientific inquiry, communication, and problem-solving skills in the early years of development. A responsive & conducive learning environment further ensures the development of dynamic individuals with strong moral values and a passion for lifelong learning.
Language development is a vital part of communication in the early childhood years. It is also a crucial aspect of cognitive development in children. Language development with young children is important for their success in school and beyond. It is a time of immense growth in language. We, at Rhythms, provide a variety of experiences & create language and communication-rich environments that engage children in meaningful experiences that promote development through joyous jolly phonics, speech & drama, vocabulary enhancing fun games, and reading books & story telling.
Children are virtually engaged in enriching & enjoyable activities like vocal warm-ups, tongue twisters, show & tell, word wizards, role-plays, pretend plays, picture-reading, read-aloud story fun, theatre, alphabet games, board games, puppet shows, dramatic plays, etc.
Numeracy can be so much fun! Want to foster a positive attitude toward math: Find ways to include enjoyable math activities. At Rhythms, we involve the children in fun activities to develop numeracy skills. Pre-number concepts like measuring, estimating, sorting, noticing patterns, playing counting & sorting games, singing number songs & rhymes numbers, and so on help the children in developing interest in numeracy which is then followed by fun numeracy activities like number recognition, quantification, counting, adding and subtracting, all through fun-filled activities.
From birth through to early childhood, children use their senses to explore and try to make sense of the world around them. Children and even adults learn best and retain the most information when they engage their senses. We, at Rhythms, are providing opportunities for children to actively use their senses as they analyse their world through ‘sensory play’. It naturally encourages children to use scientific processes while they play, create, investigate and explore. The sensory activities like calming bottles, soundbox, balancing beam, feel the textures, texture walk, pouring, transferring, beading, lacing, zipping, play dough fun, kneading, peeling, buttoning, creative sand art, etc. allow children to refine their thresholds for different sensory information helping their brain to create stronger connections to process and respond to sensory information.
Exposure to music can improve children’s ability to learn. Music & movement instruction have shown to improve children’s memory, cognitive development, learning skills, and expressive ability. It also, promotes group learning, practicing social skills such as turn-taking and cooperation. We, at Rhythms, encourage children to participate in music and movement sessions. Music is also a wonderful way of enhancing language skills, it strengthens your vocabulary bank and makes the concepts easy & fun to learn and remember.
STEM education helps children to better understand the environment and relate. It essentially helps them live and experience the concepts. The application of STEM learning caters to the importance of memory retention. STEM activities are based on curiosity, inquiry, and play. The facilitators at Rhythms have set up a STEM-based laboratory that offers magnetic slime fun, jellybean building, water cycle in a bag, rainbow in a jar, built a giant sand volcano, Lego challenges, pattern block challenges for students to learn through play, and hands-on experience. STEM, by its very nature, encourages play and experimentation. As a result, kids have fun, they learn, and they develop a love for learning.
