The Aim Of Nursery Teacher Training Programme

The N.T.T. method of teaching aims are the complete development of the child, ultimately preparing the teacher for life's various experiences. Children pass through a sensitive period of development early in life. Doctors described the child mind at the time of bath and six years of age as the 'absorbent mind", It is during this stage that a child has a tremendous ability to learn and assimilate from the world around him, without conscious efforts. During this time, children are particularly receptive to certain external stimuli, N.T.T teacher recognizes and takes advantage of these highly perceptive stages though the introduction of materials and activities which are specially designed to stimulate the intellect. Encouraged to focus attention on one particular quality, the child works at her own optimum level in an environment, where beauty and orderliness are emphasized and appreciated. A spontaneous love of 'work' is revealed as the child is given the freedom (writhing Boundaries) to make her own choice.
