Storytime Preschool’s Outdoor Areas

Storytime Preschool provides a warm, caring environment for our students to learn and grow. Since we are a child-centered community, everything here is designed with our young learners in mind. One of our facilities is our huge shaded bicycle track for children. This outdoor area is well shaded with natural light as well as shade cloth. When the children ride the bicycles, teachers are close by to ensure safety, educational guidance and fun. We have more than a dozen bicycles and tricycles, suitable for ages 1.5 to 6 years old.

Another shaded area is our playground. We have swings, sliders, play structures, a cubby house, a large sandpit and much more. Our grounds are well cared for and are made of synthetic grass. Daily morning assemblies are held in our garden and every class has a recess time to play and use the facilities we offer.

Our school events – Halloween party, Christmas Show, International and Sports Days are all held here in our big garden. Sometimes, we celebrate birthday parties in the garden too, as there is ample space for games like musical chairs and other fun activities.

Role Play and Drama Activites at Storytime Preschool Bangkok

Drama play allows children to adopt a favourite character to express creative emotions. It is actually an extension of natural make believe, through which they learn to experience and handle their own feelings.

At Storytime Preschool, we have a wide variety of costumes for children to explore. Drama play is part of our curriculum and the children visit the drama play area at least once or twice every week. Some of their favorites are are the doctor, princess, fireman and astronaut costumes. We also have lots of shoes, hats and accessories available. Drama play is always a fun and happy activity especially when the teacher introduces a theme, followed by a story.

The children always look forward to an enjoyable afternoon especially when the mascot Nelly the Elephant comes to visit.

Storytime Preschool finds this activity very important as it teaches the children to interact in a positive team environment, encourages the development of hand-eye coordination, and increases self esteem and energy. The coach is very professional and the program is thoroughly thought through using different approaches with colors , numbers and educational equipment.

Every child participates. Running,  catching, jumping and throwing are some of the exercise they do.

Does your child have trouble with spellings? Reading? Can’t seem to work with numbers or sit still in class? If yes, then there is absolutely no need to panic. It probably just means that he or she simply has a different learning style.

Every child has a different way of learning and understanding your child’s own learning style can help assure academic success.

IPN’s talk this month will discuss how theory of multiple intelligence can point out your child’s strengths and weaknesses.

During this talk, our guest speaker Jason Perkins, IB Coordinator at St. Andrews International School, will discuss:

  • What is an Intelligence?
  • Differences between Learning Styles and Multiple Intelligence
  • How to investigate our own  Learning Styles
  • Understanding the traditional view of Intelligence and IQ testing
  • Fun activities that combines Multiple Intelligences
