Today, pre-schooling has become a necessity rather than an option, unlike a couple of decades ago.

Apart from helping develop the social, emotional, intellectual and motor skills of your child, it also provides the very first “structured setting” for them to interact and learn. A good pre-school helps nurture your child’s curiosity and inculcates pre-literacy skills.
