The Upper Kindergarten (UKG) is a stepping stone towards the mainstream programme. The syllabus is all compassing and the curriculum is divided in such a way to that the child finds it easier at the end of the year to slip into a more global environment. Subjects like mental math, environmental science, language skill and technique are all dealt with. The child is extremely open to a more structured form of learning environment. For the child the teacher is more than just a role model, the teacher’s position in the child’s life is crucial and all encompassing. The child will actually feel and say – “My teacher knows everything.” to this end, graduating from The Blue Umbrella Preschool after four complete years gives the child a sense of confidence and the parents are assured that their child is now ready to join the mainstream programme of larger schools.
