India celebrates it 72nd Independence Day today. These days kids hardly know much about our Independence and the struggle our people went through to attain it. However, one can use this Independence Day as the perfect opportunity to impart knowledge in fun ways and prepare our kids to be responsible citizen for the future of India.
Leading preschools across India celebrated Independence Day reminding kids about the importance of the flag, the relevance of freedom fighters, the significance of our national bird/anthem and many more such things.
From making tricolour flags and pasta necklaces to proudly marching while waving their flags as they sing patriotic songs like ‘Saare Jahaan Se Achha’, we organize a number of fun and engaging activities for our children as part of the Independence Day celebration at Maple Bear schools. Our efforts at inculcating an interest and curiosity among children for learning and appreciating the many different facets of India, including our rich history and diverse cultures, is not restricted to one day but ongoing through the year. Above all, we imbibe in our children high moral values and a deep sense of respect for the environment and their fellow human beings, which ultimately help them grow up into responsible citizens of the country.” – Ms. Hazel Siromoni, MD, Maple Bear South Asia.
