Children usually learn about colours during their preschool years. The ability to learn colours is considered a marker and milestone in a child’s cognitive process and often a part of yearly screening for development and educational admittance. Recognising the colours and identifying the colour names is an important part of a child’s development. Early identification of colours helps to create the cognitive link between visual clues and words. Keeping this in mind.
Blossoms’ pre-schoolers work extensively with one particular colour which is ear-marked for that particular month. They do lot of fun activities such as worksheets, colour related games, craft work etc., with that one colour over the entire month.
This is then capped by observing a colour day at the end of the month where all the children come dressed in clothes of the “Colour of the Month”. The aim of the colour day is to visually reinforce the colour in their cognitive domain. We celebrate 10 colours over the course of an Academic Year (April to March).
