Safety Security and Hygiene
Quality hygiene is of paramount importance. Here are some of the measures we take to keep our centres sparkling clean and germ-free: Constant hand-washing and personal cleanliness: All children at our centre, as well as their caregivers, are taught the importance of hand-washing regularly. The caregivers wear caps and aprons at all times. Water Purifiers: We have installed Aquaguard water purifiers at all our centres, and only purified water is used for drinking and food preparation. Toys: Toys handled by younger children are washed after every single use. Teething, security and transitional toys for infants are not shared between children; they are personal to each child. Personal bedsheets: Again, for infants, we change sheets (provided by parents) every 1 or 2 days. Clean bathrooms: Our bathrooms are constantly being washed by the dedicated housekeeping staff. Weekly cleaning: Apart from the daily sweeping and swabbing, on weekends we give the entire centre a thorough cleaning, which includes every item including mattresses, furniture, play area toys such as swings, slides and bikes receiving a complete wash down.

Vision and Leadership
School Vision

“To be the gold standard in early childhood care and education through continuous improvements and innovations in providing a safe, nurturing and engaging learning environment for young children.” Childcare is no child’s play! We all know that the world is changing day by day, and no parent or educator can lay claim to knowing exactly what the future holds. Preparing this generation (and future generations!) of children to meet the challenges of tomorrow can seem like a Herculean task, but it is this very challenge that excites us and motivates us. In this evolving world, we plan to be way ahead of the curve, and we know that to do so, we must strive for excellence at all times. We have already gained a reputation as an institution that has revolutionised the early childhood learning industry in India by adapting the IB method for use with children as young as 18 months, turning them into ‘little enquirers’ who view the world with clear eyes and are not afraid to ask questions and seek answers. We hope to continue our endeavours, learning and growing as an institution, in the company of the best teachers provided by nature – our little ones.
