Babies- what a wonderful way to start people


A chant that began as " Healthy Happy Intelligent"
Like all parents we want the best for our daughter, Anushka. We wish that she blossoms into a spirited, confident, independent individual who cares for the people around her.

It is important that the school she goes to complements our efforts at home. In the sense that it should nurture her curiosity, help her develop and validate theories, get her to explore the world around her, relate to elders and peers in a healthy manner.

Moreover in today’s competitive world, we would like to instill confidence and pride in her, focus on her strengths and capabilities and hone them rather than follow the herd and expect her to adhere to standard definitions of success.

This was a school application request for Anush. Made me think.

We want the world for our children- try capturing the world in a few words!

Hhgma- Anush will be ahppy to befriend Arya.

Apu/ Fraah- You need to apply 2yrs in advance in the more reasonable schools! I am already lagging behind :-)

Need advice on which schools actually are good and in the vicinity

so well thought out. "we want the best" defines everything u want for the child

Yes, everyone is so enamoured by Anush's grin, and as g'ma says she'll be having everyone dancing to her tunes. :)

That is such a beautiful pic! She is lovely!

That is a very nice application. I completely agree with you that, "exploration" is the key for the growth of the kid.

Lovely title. I read it as 'What a wonderful way for people to start'. Meaning, even the ugliest of adults were babies once.
And the accompanying photo is gorgeous!

artnavy said...

Ammani- I am honoured to hear your Voice on my blog :-)
Nice angle to the title....
