Nursery Admissions:Big names do not necessarily guarantee quality!
# Do not think that, if the school has a big reputation, it is above all in quality as compared to other schools.
# So the so called average schools may also provide quality education to children.
# You should look for a school that teaches values along with academics, where Art is also given importance along with Mathematics; where project works surpasses rote learning; where peace and harmony are dominant over competition.
5 Factors to focus, while giving education to children:
1. Physical development:
Physical does not necessarily mean games and sports only. Playing musical instruments, sitting in the right posture while eating, clay work, putting things and objects in order are some of the examples.
Most of the schools focus on these personality traits these days.
2. Emotional development:
Educating a child in such a way that he/she becomes sensitive to others, to start with, the friends.
Encouraging team work, sharing things such as notebooks, pencils, art materials etc. accepting mistakes and saying 'sorry' or 'please'; maintaining an open and fair mind while solving clashes and conflicts are some of the examples, the school should focus on while taking care of Emotional development of your child.

- Are You Too Busy To Notice Your Child's Loneliness?
Busy parents and lonely children is the reality of today's society.But it is a necessity for both the parents to earn, to manage a decent living. How to find a balance so kids are also given attention.
3. Mental development:
Some children have a greater ability to learn faster. But with the guidance, encouragement and motivation even those children, who have less natural inclination to learn, can learn and become aware.
An expert and devoted teacher knows how to make learning easy to the most backward student of the class.
In any case the challenge of an educator is in educating an average or a below average child and not the already intelligent child.
4. Psychological development:
The school should provide an atmosphere, such that it provides an environment for healthy psychological growth of the child.
The campus should be clean, beautiful and peaceful. All children are by nature curious and creative. The school just has to provide the right exposure to arouse their interest.
5. Spiritual development:
It is a normal practice in most of the schools to start the day with prayer and inspiring thought of the day. This is very important for the spiritual growth of the children.
It helps the children to connect their inner thoughts with the outside world through reflective exercises.
Do you think schools play a major role in building a good personality of the child?
Teachers As Mentors!
- There is no limit to what a good teacher can bring out from a child.
- A teacher can mold a child into a fine, well rounded personality, ready to venture out in a world full of challenges and competition, with understanding and care.
- Therefore look for a school who have teacher as mentors and who are sympathetic towards the problems of children and concerns of the parents;
- A good teacher tries all experiments to make learning easy and effective for even the most backward child of the class.
To sum up:
In addition to the above, there are some other practical factors you should look for before admitting your child to a school:
~The distance from your home should not be too much;
~Overall neat and clean campus and classrooms;
~Clean and hygienic toilets and dining rooms;
~Check out the ratings of the school through reliable sources;

~The school must have good security system and transport facilities;
~It should have a first aid room and a doctor as well;
~ Focus of learning should be interactive and fun activities to stimulate the creative mind;
~Meet the Principal and teachers, before deciding upon a school.
