Parent’s Reflection on Teachers’ Day

“Happy Teachers’ Day. On this special day we would like to thank the school and teachers for all the guidance and mentorship provided to our children. We are blessed that our children Aafiya and Rahin Somani have had the good fortune of studying at VKE. The school has been a home away from home and guided them at every step of their academic journey. The emphasis on Vedanta principles along with world class IB education have moulded our children to be international minded students with Indian values. Read More

Craig Jenkins – The Storyteller at VKE

World-renowned storyteller, Craig Jenkins is an amazing, dynamic and charismatic storyteller and we have experienced it ourselves in Victorious Kidss Educares school on 21st and 22nd August 2019. International Guest speakers offer students real-world life experiences, which imbibes a global perspective amongst the children, which is imperative for an International School.
Craig Jenkins has over ten years’ experience of performing and running storytelling workshops across the world. He has shared his wonderful stories in 13 countries so far because he is so fresh, so energetic, so contemporary, full of life, emotions and fun. His style of performance is one of a kind and loved by all age groups equally. The group, comprising of parents and teachers, were spellbound and awed by the smoothness, with which he glided from techniques to contents to concepts and then back again to contents of the story. He explained the ‘magic’ of storytelling and the theory behind the magic. Read More

Digital Moderation and Responsibility

Being a 21st-century citizen is quite challenging in today’s ecosystem, where technology is inherently plugged into almost every human life. Where everyone, from Governments and MNCs to grocery stores and taxis, primarily operate and transact ‘Online’, with effortless and carefree ease. Witnessing the other side of the world has become easier than ever and all kinds of foods and utilities can be delivered to the doorstep. And of course, like the other side of a coin, it has brought upon the world, various adversities which are affecting our millennials psychologically and physically. Compulsive use of social media, obsessive gaming and ‘binge-watching’ due to the overflowing content strewed by the internet, to name a few.
In recent years, as we all know, many schools have enhanced their teaching and learning styles with contemporary gadgets and software to develop better ways of imparting knowledge. And fortunately, knowing about the above-mentioned issues and threats, many parents doubt this change in our education system and hold westernisation as the direct cause of all these issues.

 Why Early Childhood Development is Important?

“The potential possibilities of any child are the most
intriguing and stimulating in all creations.”

The potential for giftedness or a high level of intellectual, emotional, physical and spiritual development begins very early in a child’s life. In ancient India and subsequently, in the modern Western World, the time to begin, exchanging, feeding data awareness has started from the moment, a ‘mother realizes ~ that she is going to be a ‘mother’. Recent research confirms that the first six (6) years are essential and extremely important for the development of the child’s brain (Glenn Doman ~ How to Multiply Your Baby’s Intelligence).

World famous Buckminster Fuller states that, “All children are born genius and we spend the first 6 years of their life de-geniusing them.”  ~ Within which, the first two years are the most critical ~ (British Psychologist, Tony Buzan). Tony Buzan goes on to say that, “At the moment a child is born it’s already truly brilliant. It picks up languages, much better than a doctor of philosophy in any subject, in only two years. And it is a master at it by three or four”.  Read More

7 Little changes that will make a big difference in parenting

By 21st century parenting, VKE Philosophy No Comments

There’s good, passive, la authoritative, permissive and many other styles of parenting. More often than not, preset standards about parenting styles are a labelled methodology defining the modus-operandi of this much talked-about word called ‘parenting’.

What style are you?

Labels aside, parenting is a daily affair and the dynamics pretty much change time to time. Children grow, needs change, times change and its natural that so do the parents and their beliefs adjust apropos to the situation and the circumstances.

Challenges of being a 21st Century Parent

The 21st century has brought with it, its own set of parenting challenges. Being a parent is one of the most challenging, most interesting and yet the most rewarding job we ever undertake. This is truly a gigantic task faced by a parent in today’s fast pace of life. Today we need to tell our children, as parents or teachers, that “God’s seed is in you. You can achieve anything!” On the other, the days of innocent childhood are shaded by war, violence, drugs, human conflict. In addition they have to face the emotional conflict/ warfare of the world at home and also at the school. There is an electronic, a technological and an information revolution taking place. The shift has taken place. We may not even realize how the world has changed so rapidly and how it is impacting our kids. A spiritually connected child, in these scenarios, is always a caring and a balanced child and therefore is a treasure for the Universe. Once the child is set upon the path of ‘getting connected state’ with the supreme consciousness, there is no stopping a child. The parents can do little to eliminate external factors them; there are ways however, to help control them. Read More
