Early childhood education is gaining popularity in India massively especially after the new National Education Policy. Here are 5 preschools in India which focus on unique learning methods.
Pre-primary school is a planned early childhood education programme that your kids should attend before they begin schooling. It combines play with learning, and the children are taught by professionally trained adults. Kids between the ages of three and five usually attend a pre-primary school.
