Lap Time Baby Time
October 8, 2017

On the Saturday morning pre – school sessions at Bookworm, I am known to work from home or creep up the stairs to avoid engagement. Deepali who holds this session does it remarkably well and I considered myself done with little ones. For years – as far back as I can I have worked with […]

Out growing my Pre- School Group
June 20, 2017

Over the last three years, the Preschool Morning at Bookworm has been one of my most enjoyable responsibilities. Preschool mornings are held every Saturday come what may….unless of course it is a public holiday.

Pre-School Morning Rain Walk
August 11, 2015

Written by Shirly The weather was, not too co-operative with our plans to take the Pre-School Morning (PSM) group out for a Nature Walk. This being August in Goa we should not be surprised. But thanks to Deepali’s warrior-discipline and the helping hands of the team—Vandana, Barkha, Jewel, Nidhi’s mother, Ria’s father and Tapasya, we […]

Preschoolers ? Who cares?
August 15, 2014

Late last year, it seemed like the Pre School Program would be threatened with the imminent exit of Elaine – our then Preschool Educator Goddess , who created story magic every Saturday for hundreds off little ones over the past 9 years at Bookworm. Like all departures we rallied, got together as a group at […]

Upside down in Pre-school Morning
July 29, 2014

Written by Deepali It was a regular Saturday but with a not so regular concept for my Pre-school Morning. I was going to do the story Upside Down written and beautifully illustrated by T.R Rajesh. The best part of this book is that the words are printed correctly but the illustrations are printed upside down….which […]
