Many of the developmental tasks that children should achieve like exploring, risk-taking, fine and gross motor development and the absorption of vast amounts of basic knowledge can be effectively learned through outdoor play. We, at Step up, consider our playground to be places where children’s play can come to full expression, where children can make a mess, run, jump and hide, where they can shout, whistle and explore the natural world.
We believe that a child should be aware of his natural surrounding and develop relationship with the natural world through experience. To achieve the interaction with the natural environment we encourage nature walks. This activity not only makes the child aware of his environment but also develops his social skills. Step up team is aware that children go through varied kinds of distractions, temptations and over stimulation. To deal with these challenges we encourage the practice of yoga.
This nourishing atmosphere encourages children to relax and have fun while they develop not only strength, coordination, flexibility and balance, but also body awareness, better focus and concentration. In addition, we also hold annual days, sports day, stage performances, picnics to cater to the all-round development potential of a child. Encourage active participation of the parents as well by holding parenting workshops and counseling programs.
