We are parents of Nishta Pradeep, who has been studying at Treehouse Kalina since Sep 2013.
We wanted to share our thoughts on our experience with Treehouse Kalina. In a short word, the experience has been extraordinarily good. The teachers here, Ms Sarah, Ms Shrimukhi, Ms Mansi and Ms Zara genuinely enjoy teaching and being with kids. That shows very clearly in the way they go about teaching and dealing with the kids who come there.
They let the child live every moment of their childhood. For someone who comes from the traditional method of teaching, watching the children move all around the class or sit on the teacher's lap while the teaching is going on, could be a bit wary.
But we have seen the wonderful results it has on the children. The play school is now virtually a second home for our daughter. She prefers to go to Treehouse on Saturday/Sunday's as well rather than being at home!
The second point we wanted to make is on the teaching methods adopted. The teachers use play-way method of teaching which has unfathomable results on the child. We enrolled our daughter when she was 1.5 yrs and was hardly speaking mono-syllable words. But within 3 months she started speaking complete meaningful sentences. She would enact every rhyme and most of all respond appropriately to situations.There is a lot of work being done to help kids conceptually understand various things rather than just memorizing. The teachers work hard to make pictorial charts (of animals, fruits and festival representations) and hang them in the class and let the child digest those concepts through a period of 2-3 weeks where they learn it to perfection.
A special mention to the center head Ms Sarah Lokhandwala. She had taken control from the previous center head and she, along with her Senior teachers, has turned around things very positively. She comes with a rich teaching background. Every PTM is such a great experience as she would sit with the class teacher and appraise the development cycle of the child. The focus would be more on wholesome learning and overall development. We as parents have fallen back on Sarah and Shrimukhi for advice for correcting the behavior of our child without the fear of being judged.
A special thanks and gratitude to Shrimukhi who always thinks the best of each child. The way she takes care of every child's well being beyond all demands is very humbling. No wonder every child craves so much for the stars and smiley face from her.
We have seen our daughter grow from a whining child on the first day in playgroup to now where she insists visiting her teachers even on Saturdays. We would like to thank all the teachers (Shrimukhi, Zara, Mansi and others) who along with Sarah have created conducive atmosphere for a model Playgroup setup.
Thank you Tree house for giving us the right avenue to build good memories and focused parenting! We hope Tree house wings out PAN India and touch lives of many more children. All The Best Treehouse!
