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.
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!

Podar Jumbo Kids Bannimantap opened its doors to the children of Mysore on Christmas Day, 2010, offering preschool programs in Playschool, Nursery and Kindergarten. Since then, we have come a long way, and have watched hundreds of children graduate from our Kindergarten programs, and move on successfully to Primary education.
The journey has been exciting, and we have only moved from strength to strength, drawing in Playschool and Kindergarten enrollments from Bannimantap, Subhashnagar, NR Mohalla, Yadavgiri, Rajivnagar, Udaygiri areas and beyond. In 2014, we moved to our own spacious, architect-designed facility in Bannimantap A Layout, offering children a more enjoyable, and wholesome educational experience.
