Education is an important tool in creating a better world for everyone. The more educated you are, the more constructive you would be.
Nothing on earth can replace the importance of education to mankind. While some children are scaling the heights of success around the world, there is a segment of indigent, unfortunate fellows deprived of basic education.
According to UNICEF, more than half of the 60 million children of primary school age are still out of school.
The InnerCity Mission for Children, a faith-based non-government NGO, is dedicated towards bringing poverty-stricken students into the mainstream through education. The NGO runs the InnerCity nursery and elementary school where thousands of pupils garner their education through humble and knowledgeable teachers.
Let’s take a look at how nursery school and elementary school make difference in such children’s life.
Nursery Pupils are a group of Super Dynamic Children, full of energy and vigour. This class is a preparatory class for academic excellence in the primary section. Here the NGO ensures to imply what the word says, “Train up a child in the way he should go and he will not depart from it” Proverbs 22:6.
Children between the ages of 4-6.The pupils are smart, intelligent and full of fun. They are always excited to learn new things each day. They enjoy singing rhymes, and love to ask questions. Weekly nursery activities are organized to bring out their creativity.
Teaching them is fun, they like learning with pictures and visuals. The pupils are excited with their phonics subjects, which includes recitations of letter sound, which helps them in forming words correctly. Our watch word is” learning is fun”.
As they explore every day, they look forward to their daily recitation of rhymes, counting in numbers, numeracy, and literacy
In this manner, children are educated to build their life in a productive manner.
Elementary has two categories, Lower primary (basic 1-3) and Upper primary (basic 4-6). At this stage, more valid instructional materials are used in class to make learning fun and help the students develop desire to continue learning, it also enhance critical thinking and logical judgments.
The pupils are actively involved in the teaching and learning process so as to help them retain lesson taught. The pupils develop desirable social standards, moral, Christian values, self-disciplined, aesthetic value, awareness and appreciation of other nations and international community. The schedule curriculum guides them to inculcate respect and love for own country and the needs for harmonious co-existence. The pupils at this stage are guided and taught the role of technology in national development.
The pupils have are taught social skills, intra-personal and inter-personal skills, research and enquiry skills and various scientific skills that would greatly improve their future as they are being prepared to be launched into the world, to another ladder of life- A crucial and very sensitive part of their life.
From the Upper primary section, the children begin to take more responsibilities, functioning as head boy, head girl, house captains, and club captains. It is also preparatory section for admission into the Secondary School. The core value of the school is now imbedded in their heart.
