New Delhi, August 11, 2016: Sesame Street Preschool – one of the leading preschool chains in India – expanded its network in Delhi NCR with the launch of three new preschools at Palam Vihar, Pitampura and Noida. Coming from the globally acclaimed Sesame Street, Sesame Street Preschool brings with it the legacy and expertise of providing high-quality early childhood education.
Sesame Street Preschool is present in Ghitorni which have been well-accepted by both parents and kids. This positive response inspired the organisation to launch new centres in the city to address the early childhood education needs of the young kids. With increasing number of nuclear families and working parents, well-planned preschools with creative curriculum are gaining popularity across India. Parents are realising the need for high-quality preschools with a view to bringing world-class education and personality development practices for young kids to help build a strong foundation before starting primary school. Given the fact that preschools have a limited catchment area, coupled with increasing demand in the market, Sesame Street Preschool decided to launch more centres in the city.
Mona Singh, Vice President, Sesame Street Preschool says, “Sesame Street’s work extends across 150 countries, making it the world’s largest preschool educator. Here at Sesame Street Preschool we aim to bring about a paradigm shift in the preschool space by making high-quality education, teaching standards and learning spaces accessible to Indian kids. Our curriculum unites the best practices from around the world to prepare kids as the future global citizens of the 21st century. At Sesame Street Preschool we train our educators to utilise a vast array of carefully created resources spanning from workbooks, games, audio-visual to digital materials in order to ensure that kids are educated in an engaging and innovative manner.”
The curriculum offered at Sesame Street Preschool goes beyond ABCs and 123s to instil the skills of ideation, confidence, communication and collaboration – skills that are needed not just for school but for life. The preschools are built and designed in such a way that they help in the holistic development of the kid. A well-designed activity room which supports the curriculum and activity-based learning has been set up to encourage kids’ hands-on learning. Children use non–verbal medium to express and share their observations and learnings from the immediate surrounding. The outdoors of Sesame Street Preschool have been designed to enhance kids’ fine motor skills with elements like stepping stone, sand pit, target wall, finger maze, locomotion.
Sesame Street Preschool is currently present across 22 cities in India including Ahmedabad, Anantapur, Aurangabad, Bengaluru, Bhopal, Chennai, Dehradun, Gandhidham, Gurugram, Hyderabad, Jaipur, Jammu, Meerut, Mumbai, New Delhi, Noida, Patna, Pune, Secunderabad and Udaipur offering preschool programmes for 1 to 6 year olds including Beginners (Parent- Toddler Programme), Playgroup, Nursery, Prep I and Prep II programmes. Furthermore, the preschools provide a set of after school programmes inculcating critical thinking, communication and collaboration skills. Few centres also provide extended day care facilities which help in the kid’s social and emotional growth in a fun-filled and supervised environment.
