This is a very frequent question that we get from parents who want to inquire about our curriculum. They specifically wish to know about the kind of preschool activities that their children will be engaged in during the hours spent at our center.
The first thing that parents in the Bannimantap and Yadavgiri areas need to know is that the Podar Jumbo Kids kindergarten chain follows the Early Years Foundation Stage framework. Our center is part of the only kindergarten chain in India to follow this widely-recognized British curriculum that is followed by preschools in the United Kingdom.
Every activity that your child will perform at our center is designed to specifically fit into one of the Seven areas of development that are defined in the Early Years Foundation Stage standard. Simply put, at our Bannimantap playschool, your child will never take part in activities that are meaningless, pointless, or cannot help him in learning anything. Every activity whether it is indoor or outdoor, play or nursery rhymes, games or role play, are specifically designed to encourage learning.
So, your toddler or kindergartener could be engaged in water play to revise numeracy concepts, while he could be strengthening his English alphabet learning in our large sand pit.
Coloring and painting activities may be designed to strengthen his understanding of science concepts, while role-play could be used to strengthen personal and social development.
Our rhymes are always tied in with the Science concepts that we teach, stressing the child’s learning, and reinforcing whatever he has grasped earlier.

Water play is easily one of the most popular activities at Podar Jumbo Kids, the popular Play school and Nursery choice for parents in Bannimantap and Yadavgiri. Children enjoy it, and wait for “Water Play” day eagerly!
But what are the benefits of water play, and why is it included in our curriculum? Here, it’s important to point out that no activity in our curriculum is pointless, or holds zero benefit for the child. The child-friendly KIDUCATION approach followed at Jumbo Kids ensures that children only have activities that are relevant and benefit some aspect of their development.
The benefits are many:
Water play helps in gross motor development. Splashing about helps in strengthening arms, shoulders and legs, and builds core strength.
It encourages social interaction. Even a normally shy child opens up and interacts with friends in the pool as she splashes about
Language skills are strengthened in this manner as children interact and talk as they enjoy this fun activity.
We also often use water play as a way to reinforce basic math concepts, colours and so on. So the popular pool is often used a second classroom!
Water play builds immunity. Doctors often recommend splashing in water as a way to develop immunity against infections, frequent colds and cough.
Our Water Play sessions are conducted in a safe, hygienic pool once a month under the close and careful supervision of the class teacher and assistants.
Your child’s preschool or kindergarten must be a very special, safe and secure place. Unfortunately, there are far too many distressing news reports in the media these days about abuse of children in schools. At Podar Jumbo Kids Bannimantap, we take security and safety of every child very seriously.
All our staff members go through mandatory orientations about child abuse prevention and child security, and sign a “Zero Tolerance Policy” agreement that clearly states Jumbo Kids’ non-tolerance of any physical or verbal abuse of a child.
The Bannimantap center has undertaken complete police verification of all playschool and nursery staff, including teaching and nonteaching staff.
We have only female staff members on campus, and no strangers are allowed onto the campus without a specific and essential reason for being there.
Children are never allowed to walk off campus with strangers, or even family members, unless they produce a special Smart Card, identifying the person’s authority to take the child.
Teachers at our Mysore Kindergarten conduct regular “Good Touch, Bad Touch” programs and use presentations, workshops, puppet shows and skits in order to educate children about the importance of protecting their own bodies from harm. Even our note books have the Good Touch, Bad Touch strip printed at the back, so parents can talk about these delicate, but very important matters at home with the child.
These are just some of the ways we work to keep your child safe and secure at our preschool. To learn more about what we do to keep your child safe and secure at our premises, call 9900622908 or 9900964007 to schedule a visit to our center.

Seniors and Nursery children of Podar Jumbo Kids Bannimantap had their Convocation ceremony on Saturday, March 1. The children were resplendent in their scarlet gowns, and graduation caps, and were so proud! We loved having all the parents join us as we celebrated the children’s journey into the next stage of their lives.
Graduation is a milestone for any child. For a Nursery child, it means a transition from the babyhood of Nursery class into the more formal class environment and busier schedule of Jr. kindergarten. For Seniors, it means moving on from the protected environment at Podar Jumbo Kids in Bannimantap – for most, their very first and only school to-date! – to the much more demanding life of primary education.
However, we feel very confident that our children will cope with this transition smoothly and even joyfully.
We wish our Graduating
students all the very best in the future. Soar high, reach for the stars and never be afraid to chase your dreams. God bless you all!
