The Importance of Choosing the Right School for Your Children
One of the most important decisions you will make as a parent is choosing the right school for your children. An ideal school can provide your children with quality education, safe and supportive learning environment, and access to resources that help them reach their potential.
We get it; choosing the right school for your kids is a challenging task, and a lot of thought and planning goes into it. We are here to guide you through the process and help you narrow down your research to important factors according to your child’s age.
In this blog, we will talk about the importance of choosing the right pre-primary school for your children.
This developmental stage is regarded as the foundation for a child’s motor, emotional, and cognitive skills, along with reading and calculation. According to the studies, a child’s brain develops faster at this stage than at any other stage in life.
What is important at this stage for you is to choose a school that has trained faculty and modern, child-friendly infrastructure that supports the overall development of your child and helps him/her acquire the mentioned skills.
You must look out for schools with a significant teaching experience. And schools that have built a legacy for themselves over the years and have been reliable. You can talk to other parents about their experiences during the pandemic. It would inform you about the stability of education in the school.
Not every school has the resources to deal with emergency situations; this is why, according to the data released by the Education Ministry in its UDISE+ (2020-21) report, enrolment in pre-primary schools was reduced by nearly 30 lakhs in 2020-21.
It is also crucial to look for a school with a healthy student-to-teacher ratio. It can be challenging for teachers to focus on every individual when the strength of the class is high.
Ensure that the school your child attends maintains the highest quality in terms of hygiene. A visit to the school’s campus will solve this query.
When we search for the best schools for children, a safe transportation facility is extremely important. Parents often worry about the safety of their children whenever they have to travel by bus. Make sure the school has the necessary arrangements in place to resolve this.
You also do not want your kids to keep changing schools because their present school does not provide classes beyond a certain grade. It will force you to repeat the same process again. The right school for your kids would be one that has an ecosystem of specialised programmes for each of their learning stages, that is, pre-primary, primary, secondary, and senior secondary.
It would help your child make a seamless transition from one learning environment to the other.
To cater to each learning stage, Narayana Group of Schools has developed specialised programmes, they are:
- e-Kidz (Pre-primary)
- e-Champs (Primary)
- e-Techno (Secondary)
- Narayana Junior College (Sr. Secondary)
To address the security concern, Narayana Group of Schools provides a real-time bus tracking system and notifications through our nConnect app. This ensures complete safety for your child.
The following are the key factors to consider when choosing the best schools for your children:
- Kids-friendly faculty
- Experience & legacy
- Security & Hygiene
- Programs catering to each learning stage
- Student-to-teacher ratio
The best school for your kids would not be the best school for everyone, and vice versa; it simply needs to be the best school for your child. We hope you found what you were looking for by reading this blog. Continuing with this, we will focus on the importance of different stages of education and choosing the right school for each in an upcoming series of blogs.
