Thereafter due to overwhelming response from nearby areas in the academic year 2011-12 two batches of Play Group & one batch of Nursery class were required to be made operational to accommodate 45 children.

What is Pre-schooling and why is it required for a child ?

Pre-Schooling is the provision of education for children before the commencement of statutory and obligatory education. The kindergarten or Pre-school is a place where young children learn as they play with materials and cope up to live with other children and teachers. Since most important years of learning are begun at birth, a child's brain at this age is making connections that will last the rest of their life. During these early years, a human being is capable of absorbing more information at a time than they will ever be able to again. The environment of the young child influences the development of cognitive skills and emotional skills due to the rapid brain growth that occurs in the early years. Assessments components that is associated with each individual unique child that has both social and academic outcomes. Allowing pre- school children to discover and explore freely is the foundation for developmental learning, hence the necessity of sending a child to a pre-school.
