Hi!
Just wanted to share my experience about my kid Akul. We started schooling for him with a Junior Toddler Program when he was 14 months. We were lucky to have a school KLAY in Whitefield Gurgaon.
I saw on their website that they have started a school some where in sector 49 in Gurgaon. Please try that school.

hai i am mom of two. the first child i put her into the monti.at 2.6 years and the second one i put her in at the age of 2.9years. i dd not want to put the second even at this age ,, i thought 3 would be fine. but i let her go to just get used to the rules in the class and interaction and dicip/ and thinks like that.also i did not want my child to lag behind the rest of the kids in the regular school.

i would say 1+ is too early for the child. ideal would be 2.6year or later.

schools are there just to make money. we have to use r heads to decide what is good for r child.

my first child is so fed up of learning ABCD.... since she is being doing this since 3 years.

Hi,
My son is 1 year 5 months old. I have put him in playgroup. But everytime he comes back home after his 1 hr at the school, he is crying. He is the youngest in the group too. I am really in a fix, if I have admitted him too early in the playgroup. I am thinking of not sending him to the playgroup. What should I do?

I have the same confusion.. I enrolled my child in a play group when she was abt 1.11
The first 2 weeks were fine.. she enjoyed it a lot... but since then she has been crying a lot.. clings to me at the gate..and when she comes out I can make out that she has been crying all the time.. we spoke to the mgmt.. at first they said she will settle down soon... and then after a couple of days conceeded that there is some problem and they will give her extra attention.. after that things improved a little.. when she comes out she tells me abt a few things she did inside.. but she still does not want to go to school.. and the same drama outside the gate every morning...
It is almost a month since they started school and most of the kids in her batch still cry.. is this normal ? I thought they would all settle down in a couple of weeks..
From the outside I cant find any fault with the school.. they have lots of good teachers and decent ayyas.. the mgmt is co-opertaive.. school is clean and spacious.. lots of facilites and great activities..but I dont know what happens inside.. my daughter is just not happy.. and she enjoyed the first 2 weeks so much..
Is there a problem or is it just a worried mom overreacting... I´ m wondering if I should pull her out and enroll her next year.. she will be 2.11 then..

Importance of play school
From my point of view, I think that making kids to attend playschool will definitely help kids to mingle with the other kids and help them in socializing. Also, it will help kids in very early stage to socialize and teach them the basic etiquettes. So, I would definitely say that playschool has its own advantages and sure it makes kids better before they attend their prima... - stutee saini [View Message]
