Importance of a preschool education
· The child understands how to get out of the separation anxiety “and learns to become confident and independent.”
· He also learns the basic foundations of achieving academic and all round development, and learns to build his self-esteem.
· The child learns to communicate with people around and the knowledge and skills he develops in these formative years impact his life later.
· He gets improved on social skills, less behavioural problems and higher grades without any special attention.

Therapies and academics are customized to suit each child. “Developmental observations are maintained.”

Major challenges
· Getting training and qualified teachers to teach pre-schoolers
· Creating awareness among parents about early childhood education
· Limited infrastructure provisions and spaces

Mr. Nirmal Verma, when asked about the good topics to discuss with the pre-schoolers, says, “The learning should cover topics related to everyday life on the one hand and to the world around us on the other.”
To conclude he says, “We are highly recommended by the top doctors in Kolkata as the best environment for both normal and special kids. We wish to continue the dedicated work and now in this process are ready to expand our preschool horizon and are giving franchises.”
