You are cordially invited for the Convocation Ceremony of your child on Saturday, March 10, 2018 at the school campus!
Timings are as follows:
Nursery : 10 AM
Sr. KG : 11 AM
Children must come dressed in their School uniforms, socks and shoes. The ceremony will begin at the stipulated time, so please take your seats in a timely manner. Nursery children must be present at school by 9.45 am to allow the child time to settle down before the event begins.
All this week, children of Podar Jumbo Kids Bannimantap are participating in a special campaign designed to encourage healthy lifestyle habits. The Stronger India, Healthier India campaign will run from February 19 to February 23, and will include special activities, games and parental inputs designed to foster a love of healthy living in our little ones! Watch their progress on Facebook.
As educators, it is our constant endeavour to facilitate the holistic development of our children. A very important factor for a child’s emotional, social, cognitive and spiritual growth is her/his proximity and interaction with nature.
As a parent, you know that there are many differences between a boy and a girl in how they play. Your daughter may particularly like tea parties while your son wants to roughhouse with a football. The support they get or do not get in their preschool years lays the foundation for the rest of their gender identity formation
Gender-neutral activities offer benefits for both boys and girls. They are suitable because they do not focus or push the child into a category that is pre-prescribed based on gender bias.
Therefore, at Podar Jumbo Kids, we are having five days Gender bias Project from 22nd January to 25th January.
Podar Jumbo Kids is dedicated to help children grow into caring, capable adults through a partnership with parents through events, workshops, play based activities and projects. “The Parent Connect” adds a critical link between schools and children and hence we strongly believe in making communication a two-way street.
This is an attempt to break the stereotypes and to ensure that the environment reflects diversity in gender roles and encourages equal opportunities for everyone.

This year, the children of Podar jumbo Kids Bannimantap will celebrate Eid-ul-Fitr with a special gesture. They will share their happiness with those who are less fortunate through the Eid Charity Drive initiative at our school.
To participate in the Eid Charity Drive, simply send lightly used and usable clothes, footwear and toys that you no longer need. All donated material will be collected, packed by us, and forwarded to Goonj, a New Delhi-based non-governmental organization that provides disaster relief and community development services across the country. To learn more about this wonderful organization and the work that they are doing to help the less fortunate and the rural poor across India, go to their website.
We hope this Charity Drive will light the spark of giving in your child, and set the tone for a lifetime of contributing to the community.
Remember to send clothes and other material that are not damaged and can be used. All clothing materials must be washed, and sent in a bag. The last date for sending materials for the Eid Charity Drive is June 22.
We look forward to your enthusiastic participation in this initiative!
It’s that time of the year again! We are excited and looking forward to the beginning of the new academic year.
The academic year 2017-2018 at Jumbo Kids will kick off with a special Parent Orientation Program that has been planned for Monday, June 5, 2017.
The program will help parents become familiar with the academic schedule for their children in the upcoming year, and will also help them understand the curriculum and the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) curriculum that is adopted at Podar Jumbo Kids. You will also have a chance to spend time in your children’s classrooms, meet with the class teacher, and participate in the kind of preschool and kindergarten activities that your children will now be enjoying at school regularly.
The schedule for the Parent Orientation Program is as follows:
Date: Monday, June 5, 2017
Timings: 10 AM for Nursery
11 AM for Jr. KG and Sr KG
Attendance is mandatory for all parents with their children. Please do not miss the Parent Orientation Program, and cooperate with us to make your child’s upcoming year, a memorable and happy one!
Classes will start from June 6 for Nursery, and June 8 for Jr KG and Sr KG.
Most parents of preschoolers are concerned about the development of their child’s language and communication skills. That is natural because the years from 2 to 5 are when maximum language development takes place. Children learn new words, learn to form sentences, and learn to speak in complete and articulate groups of sentences. They are capable of learning more than one language at this stage.
Our preschool curriculum and system place special emphasis on helping children develop essential and vital communication skills. Nursery and Kindergarten children at Podar Jumbo Kids Bannimantap have access to special activities, like role-play, drama and elocution classes that specifically help children speak better.
Drama is an essential part of the curriculum that allows Kindergarten children to express themselves freely, in a non-stress environment and without fear of rebuke or criticism. A stress-free, encouraging environment that is completely devoid of censure or criticism is vital for your child to develop essential language skills.
Role-play is another vital activity that both and Kindergarten and Nursery children engage in regularly. Role-play allows the child to understand not just himself, but also the people around him, the environment that he lives in, and helps him interact with them in an appropriate and functional manner. Be it doctor play, or kitchen play, our Playschool and Nursery children enjoy the opportunity to be someone else for just a few minutes, expressing themselves, and using language that goes beyond their everyday vocabulary.
We use special supervised preschool events in which children are given the opportunity to play roles in a much more formal and organized setting. We conduct events in which children dress up as various characters, like fruit and vegetable sellers, and customers, and interact, with each other in their designated roles.
Curious about how our children learn to speak and engage with each other? Call us on 9900622908 and inquire about the Nursery and Kindergarten early childhood education programs at Podar Jumbo Kids Bannimantap.
