PARENT'S CORNER

Partnership with Parents

Home is the first learning environment for the child and parents are the first teachers. They not only guide the child in its progressive path but also demonstrate the appropriate behavior by their actions.

We strongly believe that a close partnership of teachers with parents results in the development of the child. Good communication between teachers and parents enables to inform each other of relevant matters concerning the child. We appreciate being informed of any change at home that might affect your child and will treat anything you tell us in strict confidence.

We organize parent teacher meetings regularly when you will be invited to discuss your child's progress.. We want you to feel welcome at the nursery and we will always have time for you. There is an open-door policy at Tiny Fingers, parents can communicate easily with teachers, may discuss any matter related to the development of the child.

Events for Parents

Though Tiny Fingers play school provides a variety of opportunities to parents to participate in the programs like birthday celebrations, festival celebrations, annual day celebration but we organize various events like Orientation Programs, Parenting Workshops & Seminars, Mother's Day, Parent's Day and Grandparents Day exclusively for parents & grandparents.

As a parent we expect you to provide:
  • Complete details of the family at the time of admission.
  • Photocopy of the child's immunization record.
  • Children below 2 years unless toilet trained at home need to be on diapers (mandatory)
  • Spare clothes, towels, disposable diapers, soaps, lotions, etc.
  • Sufficient no. of microwave-safe feeding bottles depending on the no. of feeds per day.
  • Food material / milk / snacks / medicine which child requires (written instructions if any)
  • Children with fever / any other ailments should be avoided from being brought to crèche.
  • Avoid valuable Jewellery.

Instinctive parenting

This might be called the "old school" method of parenting, "intuition" or simply a feeling of "go with your gut." Frost describes instinctive parenting as "very much your own personal style of parenting, usually influenced by your own upbringing." In other words, as an instinctive parent you're more likely to teach what you know and parent the way you were parented, whether you were brought up by your mother and father, siblings or another caregiver.

Attachment parenting

In attachment parenting, the goal is for parent and child to form a strong emotional bond. The people who adopt this parenting style strive to promptly respond to their child's needs and be sensitive and emotionally available for their child at all times. The belief is that strong attachment to the parent helps the child become a more secure, empathic, peaceful human being. Fans of attachment parenting often believe in natural childbirth, a family bed, avoidance of corporal punishment, homeschooling and may be part of the anti-vaccination movement.

Helicopter parenting

"Helicopter parents constantly interact with and often interfere with their children's lives. They hover like a helicopter," explains Frost. While helicopter parenting is fairly normal to ensure the safety and security of babies and very young children, be forewarned -- smothering your child in every aspect of their life can ultimately backfire. "Too much of this style of parenting and children can become dependent on their parents' money, time and advice past their college years and into their professional careers," says Frost.

Authoritative parenting

"You live under my roof, you follow my rules!" It's a cliché, but one that parents may often find themselves speaking -- and it probably most closely mimics the authoritative parenting style. The parents who fit into this category typically establish rules and guidelines and expect their children to follow them, but the methodology is a bit more democratic than "what I say goes." For children who fail to meet the authoritative parent's expectations, the parent is more nurturing, forgiving and responsive. Their idea of discipline is to be assertive but not restrictive, to support rather than punish.

Permissive parenting

It's a child's world for permissive parents, sometimes referred to as nontraditional, indulgent parents. "They have very few demands to make of their children and rarely discipline them because they have relatively low expectations of maturity and self-control," says Frost.

If at any point the word "lenient" comes back into play, it's for this type of parent. The permissive parenting style is often evidenced by individuals who try to be more friend than parent, avoid confrontation and are generally nurturing and communicative.
