At Mother’s Pride, we love to be the cupid and make our Prideens fall in love with the magic of letters and numbers. We believe in moving ahead of the conventional methods of teaching letters & numbers and allow our children to freely learn through imagination. Instead of following the sequential ‘A to Z’ or ‘1 to 10’ method of learning, this book acts as a fresh breath of air which fills the language and mathematical classrooms with wonder, joy and excitement of learning.
For children, everything is new! Their enquiring minds look out at the world and strive to comprehend it. This book is truly a ‘Looking Glass’ which helps children understand their surroundings. Concrete concepts such as ‘Home’,‘Family’, and ‘Our Helpers’ as well as abstract concepts such as ‘Seasons’, ‘Festivals’ and ‘Good Manners’ are put across in a lucid, easy-to-understand manner. This book is also of invaluable assistance to both teachers and parents in helping them introduce to young learners the basic concepts of everyday living in our modern world.
This book of rhymes attempts to provide an aid towards the best all-round development of children upto four years of age. It contains a selection of rhymes which were sifted through thousands of rhymes that ensure lucid comprehension and an ideal mix of learning with fun. With these rhymes, we also actively involve the children in ‘playing’ and ‘enacting’ through which their memory is built in an interesting way. The rhymes such as: ‘Who Likes Cuddles?’, ‘The Elephant’, ‘The Wheels of The Bus’ and ‘Good Manners’ teach the concepts to students in the best way. The jingling and tinkling quality of these rhymes makes singing and enatic a fun-filled exercise. This book is also highly adaptable for group activities.
Kilkari is not just a book, it is a celebration of childhood perfectly put in words. The honourable Chairperson of Mother’s Pride, Mrs.Sudha Gupta, has curated a book which has set a benchmark in the preschool education industry. A lot of schools in Delhi have also adopted this book as a part of their curriculum. Through a collection of rhymes and poems, we aim to give a direction to the curious minds as they fetch answers to their little questions. The medium of singing is one of the most interesting ways to teach students simplest of concepts and Kilkari fosters this in the perfect way along with taking their learning to new heights.

TEACHING – LEARNING MATERIAL
“I HEAR – I FORGET, I SEE – I REMEMBER,I DO – I UNDERSTAND”
Preschool teaching aids play a vital role in the curriculum. They support, supplement and reinforce the learnings of our Prideens. These materials give a firsthand experience to children and help in effective implementation of an activity, making learning fun, relieving anxiety, fear, or boredom. Many teachings also act as games that provide a joyful learning experience to the children. At Mother’s Pride, a plethora of in-house Teaching–Learning materials have been created by our team of experts, which supports the curriculum books in the best possible way.
OUR IN-HOUSE TEACHING LEARNING MATERIALS INCLUDE:
Phonic Card Box (English And Hindi)
Our phonic card boxes are an effective way to teach the little ones short vowels, beginning sounds and long vowels. This tool truly nurtures their letter-sound relationship.
Flashcards For All Concepts – Fruits, Vegetables, Animals, Birds
Children believe what they see. Thus, flashcards act as an important visual tool to introduce diverse concepts to them which could be related with their everyday surroundings.
Story cards represent pictorial illustrations of the stories that teachers recite so that children can be transcended into that story through an audio visual medium.
While introducing new concepts or even letters and numbers, we use posters with different rhymes on it to turn learning into a fun singing and dancing session.
Picture Reading Cards
These cards are helpful when the children learn to combine letters, form words and connect them with an image. On these cards the image and the name of the object is mentioned which they can read out loud.
Puzzles are the best teaching aids that facilitate problem solving. Every child loves puzzles and we love them too for their cognitive development!
