Marathi Medium – Pre-primary

ppe-overviewA Pre-Primary school is the most significant stage in a child’s life. It is here that the child learns to interact with the outside world.

Learning happens in the form of play and fun and slowly the child starts loving the very concept of school.

In our Pre-primary School, we observe the children, acquaint them with basic mannerisms, food habits and personal skills, groom them to be independent and even teach them to strike a healthy conversation.
