Parenting Tips: Episode 18 (Nurturing Imagination)

Nurturing imagination through play can help young children develop the skills to think or solve problems creatively.

Examples of fun activities are

  • Dressing Up

  • Role Playing

  • Storytelling

  • Free-Flow Arts

Let’s give children the freedom to think and learn through imaginative play. It’s also important to ask them to tell their imaginative stories, new playing rules or things they invent. They will feel valued and encouraged to keep using their imaginative mind, which will be a good foundation to develop other essential life skills like critical thinking and creative problem-solving.

Which Curriculum do we use?

NODDY applies the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS), a British curriculum with emphasis on the Free-Flow-Play method where children will choose their own activity of interests and while teachers carefully accommodate, observe and guide them throughout the activities. This method is widely applied in the UK Pre-schools and proved to best broaden children’s imagination, creativity and self-confidence. All activities are conducted in English language.

When the children leave Noddy, which school do they move to?

The children from Noddy move to various International Schools, Thai Schools or those having English Program, Bilingual or Trilingual Schools.

Will the children as young as one and a half years old be able to adjust when coming to school?

It is our priority to make sure that all children are settled and happy at Noddy Playgroup. The children as young as 18 months of age can certainly adjust through : Experienced and caring staff, Comforting surroundings ,Aged-appropriate equipment ,Carefully selected activities, which improve Personal, Social and Emotional Development in small children. , Small class size which gives opportunities for staff to observe, assess and support according to the individual child’s needs.

What are the maximum numbers of children in a class?. How many adults are responsible in a class?

Nursery (1.5 – 2.5 years old): 1 teacher and two assistants to the maximum number of 12 children in a class. • 40 (2.5 – 3.5 years old) 1 teacher and 1 assistant and 1 shared assistant to the maximum number of 12 children in a class. • K1 (3.5 – 4.5 years old) 1 teacher and 1 assistant and 1 shared assistant to the maximum number of 15 children in a class. • K2 (4.5 – 5.5 years old) 1 teacher and 1 assistant to the maximum number of 15 children in a class. • Year 1 (5.5 – 6.5 years old) 1 teacher and 1 assistant to the maximum number of 15 children in a class.

How would the children who do not speak English adjust when they come to Noddy?

The children do pick up the English language naturally through everyday activities. All of daily communication between teachers and children is in English. The children learn to follow simple introductions then instinctively learn to speak and use English language in their play. From our experience, the younger the children are exposed to the English language is better. They tend to absorb the language and start using it in everyday situations much more quickly and efficiently.
