More often than not, only two people around a child who will never be jealous of his accomplishments and triumphs are his teachers and his parents. And education is an integral part of a child’s life. It is the progression orbiting around primarily your child, and other two key components namely the parent and the teacher. When both these elements come together in a child’s teaching learning experience, the results will only be remarkable.
The benefits of above were reaped during 2016 – 2017 more than ever by our school. School parents contributed immensely through various programs of ours, such as, regular yoga classes, social media support, cooking without fire workshops, parent communication and co-ordination and so on. Every initiative was supported and it was evident that parents were keen to contribute.

Hence, we launch the Parents’ Corner Wing of Kids’ Corner School on 1st January, 2017. Read More
