It is proven by research that major development of a child’s brain happens in the first 5 years hence it is recommended to start their pre-schooling education from an early age. More than academics, our pre-school programs in PG & Nursery are focused toward building life skills, social engagements, enhancing creativity and 360 degree development of your child. 1.8 to 2 years is the appropriate age for your child to commence pre-schooling. At this age, your child’s mind is most receptive and fertile towards learning.
