Missed an ST meet which I had been looking forward to.
Enrolled Aditi in a play school beginning June. And Anush was the one who gave us the go ahead. She liked the place enough to suggest that she would also go there instead of her current school!
In the two schools we had considered for Anush in Chennai ( years ago), there was a prep class- about 2 hrs a day ( Anush went to one) which works well since it naturally progresses into Montessori and there is familiarity with the school as well for the child.
Here in Blore that does not seem to be the case - at least as I know- no reception class for the almost 2 to 3 yr age group in the few Montessori schools in our area.
We ensured no clash in 'syllabus' in the play school we selected for Aditi since we do not want her getting hassled about ABC and aa-ba-ca. And of course are satisfied with the hygiene and security bit. Were a bit appalled by the fees but such is the scene now we guess. And Anush thinks Aditi is going to LOVE this school. Fingers crossed!
