The ‘Newsletter’ from the Principal

Dear Parents,

In the words of Dr. Maria Montessori, “The greatest sign of success for a teacher is to be able to say, “The children are now working as if I did not exist.” She said, Never help a child with a task at which he feels he can succeed.” Bubble Blue family thrives on this idea. Rather than focusing on external rewards, we encourage children to explore who they truly are in mind, body and spirit – their likes and dislikes, their greatest joys and deepest fears, how they relate to the world and the people in it.

A journey which started way back in 2007 has learned a lot in the process. It explored various possibilities, faced many challenges, some major, some minor, some successful, some may not be that successful-none the less we moved forward and definitely with tremendous support from you. Administrators and teachers everywhere recognize the important contributions parents make toward a child’s success in school. There is no question about it – success at school begins at home. Parents are the single most important variable in a child’s schooling. The close partnership between home and school is one of the exceptional strengths at Bubble Blue. . Bubble Blue is a colourful world in which children are free to think and dream and create and explore while gradually coming to understand the special way in which they influence – and are impacted by – the world around them.

There are quite a few new developments in the past one year. We have been able to augment further the already enriched pre-school curriculum by introducing music and physical education. Infact, we are proposing to incorporate physical education as a part of the daycare program also with proper evaluation system. We have partnered with one of the leading abacus institutes to offer the programs for enhancing matheematical skills in our Newtown branch. It is a pleasure to make you aware that we shall be offering Montessori training under the most prestigious institute for both our branches from the academic session 2015. We wish to introduce regular psychological sessions for the school-going children from this academic session.

I hope that we can provide time for our children to be children. As children grow and learn, they find joy and satisfaction in working closely with their families towards a common goal. School and home can work together to build skills and knowledge, reinforce values, and develop a strong sense of self-worth. We must invest our time and energies in our nation’s most valuable resource – our children.

Mrs. Nabonita Bose Mukherjee
