All Parents want to find the right play school for their kids which a tall order to meet. With so many preschool around, you find yourself at crossroads. Then the question arises, Where and How to go from here.

An easy choice would be to go in for an established school which meets your approval and a difficult choice would be to find a school which enables its pupils to look beyond the boundaries and want & also let its pupils personalities to become as unique as their Thumbprints.

The following checklist may come handy :

1. A school with a vision.

2. A school which aims, focuses and provides learning opportunities for an overall growth and development of its pupils while retaining their individual essence.

3. A school which attaches equal importance to curricular and co-curricular activities and balances the two through a well planned programme to be followed through out the year.
