An online preschool program is created to ensure the holistic development of kids aged between 1.5 to 4 years. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the parents are reluctant to send their children to physical classes. Therefore, virtual schooling is an ideal solution for parents to continue their kids’ education safely. Online learning enables kids to cultivate observation, analytical, and problem-solving skills. The expected learning outcomes are similar to a real-time classroom environment.

Our digitally enabled classes prepare the children for the more complex and advanced education of the higher grades.
What are the benefits of an online preschool?
Online preschool classes have several benefits. Some of these benefits are described below:
- Student Engagement: A comprehensive kit of learning materials is designed to enhance student engagement. Student engagement helps to increase their concentration and focus, encourages them to apply advanced critical assessment skills, and improves the learning experience.
- Children Continue Learning From The Safety Of Their Homes: In the pandemic situation, it's safe and convenient for our children to stay at home and continue their learning process with proper guidance and structured curricular and co-curricular activities to ensure the child’s holistic development.
- Inculcates Patience and Discipline Among Kids: Kids crave the attention of teachers and even parents at home and have very strong observation skills. Being patient and disciplined enhances their learning process. Understanding the value of punctuality and completing tasks on time drives them to work and perform better.
- Offers Flexibility: If the child misses the class, needs to revise a section, or clear doubts, recorded sessions are available. Additionally, continued guidance and support are given through WhatsApp by the assigned teacher. Therefore, learning is not hampered, and the child enjoys doing the assigned task with ease.
- Helps Kids Make New Friends: As kids are not allowed to go out and play, their world has completely altered. The online platform exposes them to kids of their age hailing from different regions. Interactive online tools and digital curriculum enable online classes to mimic real-time school environments and enhance student interaction.
- Learning at Their Own Pace: In a class, teachers need to supervise and instruct all the children. They cannot always provide adequate attention to everyone, adversely impacting the students who are struggling with the subject. However, online preschool classes enable kids to understand the topic better before beginning another one.
