Community Helpers Contd...

We had a few more community helpers visiting the school this month - sweeper, security guard & a tailor. Here's a glimpse -

Tailor aunty took our measurements, cut the cloth, showed us how the sewing machine worked & stiched up a dress.




I am eagerly waiting for 27th Jan when all our kids will dress up as their favourite community helper!

Field Trip to the Post Office

We took our children to the Post Office. A special word of thanks to our parent volunteers - Varsha, Geeta & Bhavna for helping us out.
Children met the postman & saw him stamping his letters -

They also posted the letters that they had bought along -

Community Helpers

This month, we have been talking about people & their professions like a postman, tailor, carpenter, plumber etc. Montessori believes in hands-on learning rather than picture talk. Hence, we have arranged for some of these community helpers to come to our school & show the children their tools.

& answering children's queries -


Plumber with his tools -

A visit to the Post office is next on the cards .Keep watching this space for more!
