About Little Elly
Little Elly, Banashankari, Bangalore follows the system where every child gets to learn without being made to feel he/she is being taught. They strongly believe the early years of childhood are wonderful years and therefore crucial for their information.
The Little Elly Preschool program is unique from many of the other preschool programs as it uses the multi-age curriculum to guide the children through out their preschool years.
Little Elly combines these methods with a set of age-based curriculum options that allows the child to move from one developmental phase to another within a single program. This accommodates the learning.
There are three different curriculums, a playgroup for age two, nursery for age three and kindergarten for age 4 to 6 years. Each part of the program notes the particular needs of each child at that age, giving him or her the skills necessary to complete the program successfully. Each curriculum leads easily into the others so that the entire program can be easily followed.

In this area, kids are welcome to practice every day skills that work on fine-motor skills, eye-hand coordination. Fine motor skills are the basis for the preparation of the hand. Fine motor skills development at Little Elly has a wider role than just writing – they are a necessity for daily living: dressing, eating, etc.
Formal Work Preparation: Reading is the foundation of all learning. We have a range of exciting activities to help children acquire pre-reading and reading skills
Music and Movement: It is observed that music and movement helps the child to have longer attention spans, which helps to improve the listening abilities and the development of language and Vocabulary skills. This period will be fun time for the child and they will love it.
Creative Arts: Mixing colors, scribbling across a black board, painting and shaping objects – may look amusing to adults, but they are a great way to teach new way of thinking, creating and communicating with images as well as words.
Mathematical concepts: Kids are never too young to start learning math skills. Their math’s program allows hands on exploration, active investigation and the use of manipulation. Counting, sorting and even working puzzles are all important first steps to a solid learning.
