Homeschool your Preschooler

To support you in navigating this critical time in your toddler’s growth and education, we are launching a Homeschool Program, specifically designed for parents of toddlers and preschoolers.

 

Learning that happens in leaps and bounds in the early years, cannot be put on hold due to uncertainties. So while the children may not be able to come to school, we bring the learning to them and the Waldorf method to your home.

InBloom Homeschool Program

The formative years are not about memorising the ABCs or the ability to count to 10.

They are about learning the unquantifiable; it's about reaching developmental milestones, learning essential life skills, values and habits that can last a lifetime. And watching children learn and develop a lifelong love for learning through mindful experiences is gratifying to both you as a parent and your little one.

The Inbloom Homeschool Program is designed to help preschoolers transition into their primary years. Instead of burdening little minds, we give children the right environment and tools to flourish holistically. Our program is personalised to meet every child’s needs, and equips you with tools and resources, as well as weekly and monthly activities to keep children learning and discovering.

This program is not meant to overwhelm you or your child. Instead, it will help toddlers and preschoolers grow holistically, cognitively, physically and emotionally, all while at home.

 

What does the Homeschool Program entail?
 

1.

Creating the right home environment

Specially designed activities and lessons will guide you in creating opportunities for children to observe and imitate - thus developing critical life skills, good habits and values.

2.

Designed for you - the parent

We communicate exclusively with you, so you can help nurture and educate your little ones to develop essential life skills holistically and media-free.

3.

A Curriculum to suit YOUR child

Children will observe and participate at their own unique pace. So, what your child is learning today is not the same as what someone else is - and that is how it should be.

4.

We provide the material & resources

Through the Homeschool Program, we keep open channels of communication. We provide the teaching material as well as    dedicated, one-on-one support.

5.

Personalised to your home environment

The pace of learning depends on your child’s age, interest, and ability. A personalised curriculum will be developed keeping your child, and your home environment in mind.

 

Personalised to your home environment

The Homeschool Program is based on the Waldorf method, adapted to the Indian setting, and will be customized for every child and every home. Unlike rigid classroom methods, we believe in non-instructional teaching that includes leading by example.

A weekly and monthly curriculum will be outlined per your child’s developmental milestones. It will include ideas for play, songs, purposeful work and guided experiences rooted in lessons for children to imbibe. With keen and consistent support from the InBloom faculty, you can create a conducive environment to  introduce new concepts, ideas and responses - all at home. 

  1. A foundation video call so we can learn about your child, your home environment and create a customized curriculum.

  2. An orientation call for parents to better understand the Waldorf approach and philosophy with respect to their child.

  3. A personalised home-rhythm that allows you to plan your child’s daily and weekly activities while balancing your own unique schedule.

  4. An insight into the child's consciousness and abilities will be shared periodically through videos, information and faculty support so you are prepared to navigate their different stages of development. 

  5. An Indianised curriculum to help facilitate learning indoors and outdoors. We will provide guidance on activities, play, mealtimes, toilet training, how to create a media-free child-friendly environment, and tools to support your child’s developmental curve. 

  6. A monthly, age-appropriate kit (customised to the stage of child’s growth) that ensures the continued development of fine motor skills, attention span, and self-expression. The kit will contain art, craft, handwork material and instructional videos.

  7. Songs about seasons, nature, transitions, activities, and gratitude verses, both on print and videos along with tips, will help develop language, math and other discoveries. This is for you to learn and do with your child.

  8. Stories, recital tips and video support will guide you in creating story-time with your little ones to enhance their curiosity and everyday learning. 

  9. Videos and guidance on movement will help you introduce children to poses and postures that augment their gross motor skills, balance and coordination.

  10. Simple, seasonal recipes that you can prepare with your child and enjoy as a family. This encourages learning, expands your child's food repertoire and will also build immunity.

  11. Weekly parent-teacher calls will be set up for feedback, troubleshooting, guidance and support.

Frequently asked questions

How often can I talk to the teacher?


We schedule a weekly call. However, we do understand that initially parents may need to connect with us more often and we will keep all channels open to help you along.




What are the materials you will provide and how?


The material shared will be in the form of digital resources, videos and learning kits. The kit will contain craft and learning material as per your customized curriculum, that will be couriered or shipped via Dunzo in advance.




What if my child does not want to, or refuses to do a specific activity?


This is normal initially. Some children observe for a longer time before they actually start participating. Observation helps them process and internalize what is happening. If you continue with the activity joyfully and confidently, the child will participate when ready. The intent is not to force the child to participate but to offer them experiences that can be imitated. Over a period of time, each child will show their natural preference for certain activities.




What if I have 2 children of different ages but between the age groups of 2-6 years. Will there be a separate learning kit?


Yes. We will customize each child’s journey to their growing needs. A separate learning kit and one-on-one support will be provided per child.




How can I juggle different activities with different children?


It will be best to do the same activity with both, like we do with different aged children in our mixed age Kindergarten. But the activities will have to be differentiated depending on each child’s ability. We will help you with how to handle any discrepancies that arise. For example, fruit cutting - the younger one can peel bananas, the older one can slice them. Of course the younger child may insist on slicing, but safety is priority so you can offer a butterknife to the younger one. Usually the little one may try, but the older child’s activity will be difficult for the younger one to keep up with and he or she will naturally move back to peeling bananas. Whether they cut, peel or simply observe, natural learning is taking place.




What if I don’t want to continue with the program next month?


The program has a monthly fee payment structure that permits you to discontinue per your preference. However we would recommend building in a consistency of experiences to continue the child's holistic development and to develop an affinity to the 'process of learning'.




If InBloom reopens, can I continue to homeschool my child?


The Inbloom HomeSchool Program will continue even when the school re-opens. Our faculty will continue to provide you the dedicated support week-on-week as your child’s needs bloom.




If both parents are working but currently at home, can we still commit to homeschooling our child?


Yes. We will co-create a customized schedule with every parent, keeping in mind the child’s developmental requirements and growing needs.




Will children be evaluated at the end of every month?


It is not evaluation in the regular sense, like a progress report card. Instead it is a discussion of observations - of what worked and what did not, and what you would like to continue and what you would like to change.




Will there be any certificate given out on completion of the course?


Yes. At the end of 6 months, Inbloom will share a certificate of completion for each child.




When schools re-opens, should my child continue the homeschool program? What is the transition like?


The child can come in for regular classes if you are in Bangalore and can manage pick-up and drop-off of your child. The transition will include a class observation by one parent without the child, and then scheduling a start date, with shorter timings till the child settles-in. If you are in a location other than Bangalore, or find it hard to come by, then we can simply continue with the homeschooling program.
