- Why are so few students in classes?
We maintain a healthy, encouraging, child-centric learning environment all through year. Hence, the teacher student ratio at all times remains 1:8 in all classes.

Our children issue themselves books to read from the library every weekend. They choose, pick, read and return after essential formalities. Apart from that, A Book a Day Challenge once in six months encourages them to be an active member of our Reading Corner.

The parent-child relationship is unique and demanding at times. The learning time together is immensely important to understand the interests, needs and adapting capabilities of your child. To encourage the same, we create opportunities for parents through these monthly assignments.

We at Kids’ Corner School believe that gifting a book to our school Reading Corner on your child’s birthday is a more meaningful way to celebrate your child’s birthday. We have come to house a library with over 1500 books that caters to every child’s reading sensibilities.
That apart, the entire school wishes your child on his birthday. The feeling of belonging, togetherness and love your child experiences, is beyond expression.

- Why is the kindergarten taught small letters before capital letters?
Every image in a book excites the young learner, and so do the letters in them. We don’t often see story books written in capital letters only, do we? To catch the young reader in an individual, we begin with small letters and gradually move to capital letters.
