Bursting with enthusiasm and excitement, young kids in Kindergarten schools are a joy to look at. They might be young but they very well know the importance of their first teacher’s day celebration as they are busy making greeting cards for their favourite teachers.
City Express takes a look at how the kindergarten children are gearing up to celebrate this day.
Once the child enrolled into a school, he or she spend about six to eight hours of the day with their teachers, hence, it is the teacher who has a profound influence on the mindset of the child.
At the age of 4 to 5 years, the child learns the most and many of them idolise their teachers, they imitate them.
Indira, the director of Euro Kids in Koramangala says, “Our students will dress up like their teachers and mimic them. We had a discussion with their parents as well, they were really happy to see their child so eager to participate in teacher’s day celebration.”
Gina from TLC Montessori Pre school informed City Express, “We have explained the students about the significance of teacher’s day in our lives. They are making greeting cards for their teachers. Some will get flowers as well.”
Aston, a four year old kid from a Airforce school in Hebbal says, “I love going to school and my teachers are the best.”
On the other hand Julfi, another kid says, “I will give my teacher a rose flower because she always puts white flowers on her hair.”
Many montessori pre school like Kids Campus International Pre School and Tree House in the city who are on a holiday due to teacher’s day, celebrated the day in advance.
Shilpa from Tree house says, “We explained to our kids why Teacher’s Day is celebrated all over the world. We enlightened them on the role of teachers in the earlier days and in the present. They also made greeting cards for the teachers.”
For the child who has just made a beginning in formal education, the meaning of teacher’s day is just a day to be celebrated by giving cards to teachers without knowing the reasons behind it.
