Our teachers are supporting the children with their learning and development skills in a variety of ways. Some of the strategies we will discuss in this blog.

The child will more likely be able to express their desires correctly and morning greeting is also helpful for their vocabulary building.

Open-ended questions are based on whom, why, when, and how these questions help your child to prolong the answer and it helps them for good communication. Open-ended questions are enhancing our inner perspective and allow us to have better and open reaction patterns.
Guess Word Games
Communication development is one vital aspect of child growth. At spring fields teachers are paying keen attention to observing these communication milestones through guessing word games. Teachers are organizing guessing word games with children to build their vocabulary and motivate them by giving clues to guess correctly.
Pretend play can really be helpful, being sad, happy, angry, shy etc. Role play is the best way to encourage a child’s language development by performing the different roles of different professions. At spring fields we specify the role play place separately with resources so children can spend their time playing different characters freely.
