Confused?

Many adults and parents fail to understand child psychology and begin to judge their children based on an adults thought process. Children have simple minds that process each experience as something to learn.

A child is not a confused soul. If your child is indecisive it is not confusion. Not being able to decide between a number of options is because they want them all or they really do not like any. This is not confusion.

Adults on the other hand are confused. Why is this? Because for when they consider their options they are trying to figure out the consequences of their choice. The inability clearly to perceive the repercussion of each option leads them to a state of confusion. A child’s thought process does not go so far, they see what is at hand and make their decision accordingly.

Childhood is one continuous learning phase. For a child learning is not confined to the institution of school. Children learn every moment of the day, everything they see or do has some significance to them. They do not categorize situations as good or bad, they have an interest in what is going on.Quote-OurStaff.gif

Travelling has a major impact on a young developing mind. The impressions of what they see and experience holds great value in their life. It is beneficial to encourage a child to travel whether on family holidays or on school trips.

The luxury of learning

The best way to teach a child about something is to show it to them and they will learn much better and retain it longer.

via Daily Prompt: Luxury

Learning is not a luxury but a necessity. Every child must learn to survive in this world and make something of their life. In some cases it ends up becoming a luxury. Backward cultures believe that a girl should stop school as soon as she reaches puberty. In some cultures they believe that boys should not waste their time on education as they get older, but toil in the fields.

Thankfully we live in a culture where education is a compulsion. What is the most effective way to teach a child about something? This goes for not just for very young children but older teens too.

The answer is simple: The best way to  teach a child about something is to show it to them and they will learn much better and retain it longer. This is the concept behind educational tours. We believe in taking students to different countries and showing them the history, geography, economics, literature, culture traditions and many more things. Does any parent feel that their child will reMonuments 3.pngturn from a trip to London or Paris and not be more educated or wiser in anyway?

The learning saga

On our educational tours we ensure that we cover all the different aspects of the place and country. This is the reason we have teachers accompanying the group.

We select places that have a rich cultural heritage and one that has a significant influence on the world like England, Thailand, Egypt, South Africa,  France, and others.

Safety is our first priority. We are know for our safe and secure tours.

England – a destination for Indian school students

Just imagine how Shakespearean plays were enacted in open theaters with no microphones and the audience literally sitting right up to the performance platform

Why is England as a destination for Indian school students so fascinating? India and England have a history that goes back a few hundreds of years. The English ruled India and left behind their legacy. Today English is the most widely spoken language in India all thanks to the English rule.

Shakespeare is an essential part of the education and English literature in Indian schools would be incomplete without a Shakespearean play. Visiting England allows students to see where Shakespeare worked and lived, the Globe theater where his plays were performed and learn about his life in the original surroundings.

Paint the sky a hue of colour

Most children enjoy painting. If you gave a child a paper and asked them to paint the sky…

via Daily Prompt: Paint

Most children enjoy painting. If you gave a child a paper and asked them to paint the sky – I can bet you that you wont get even one paper back that is blue. Most children will make the sky a hue of colour.Marine

As an adult we see this as the child’s lack of having understood the assignment. Have you ever thought of the other side – what goes on in a child’s mind.

We train a child with “the sky is blue” – when in reality we know that it isn’t actually blue but just appears that way to us. Have we even taken note of the other colours in the sky. Rarely.

We under estimate the perception of children and their ability to see those things that we just take for granted. When a child visits a new place they are eager to look around and see things. Have you ever bothered to notice what exactly they are focused on – it certainly is not infrastructure. They see reality the way it is. Travel is s great learning experience for children and its not fair for us to curb them. We never can tell how much a school tour as a young teen will influence their whole life.

Children who have been given the freedom to create their own images in their mind have a greater advantage over those who have been controlled and told what to think. The ones who will go on to do great things and achieve great success and reach far heights are the ones who have been allowed to grow in all spheres.

I believe that travelling with peers to places like London and South Africa or even Egypt or Thailand will have such a great influence in shaping a child’s future and ability for success in life. We need to give our child small opportunities to spread their wings for short school trips. Most of all they learn to be self reliant and take responsibility for themselves
