India is rich in its cultural values and sentiments. But the advent and popularity of western thoughts and ideas into India has been a catalyst to the ever increasing generation gap. Moreover, it has also created a dilemma for the younger generation with respect to discovering their true personality. It is absolutely not meant here that this transformation is wrong or we are resistant to change, on the contrary our vision has always been to accept 'change', but not at the cost of losing our centuries old culture.

From 1989 till now, its been a long journey for The Little Kingdom in passing on the 'change' to its children along with an effort of manifesting our cultural values and beliefs into them. I am indefatigable in furthering this effort along with the help of my ever diligent team. Moreover, it is the sanctity of our vision and the good wishes of ex-students along with their parents, which have strengthened our efforts to shell out the best environment for the tender minds.

We at The Little Kingdom do not promise you Doctors, Engineers, MBAs. etc., but a lot more than that- 'A complete personality'. A Dream, a vision, an inspiration- this is what obsesses us at The Little Kingdom Nursery School.

Why Little Kingdom?
These days some children are sent to 'school' from the time they are 16-18 months old. This is a new trend & parents of the old school often wonder what these 'babies' could possibly learn when they have just begun to walk & talk.

What is a play school?
What is the concept of a play school? A play school is a place where around 20 children spend 3 hours each day under the supervision of a couple of teachers. "The supervisor-child ratio should ideally be around 1:24” says an experienced child psychologist. We believe that play schools have a lot to offer, and that the play schools should not just be aimed at developing academic skills like reading and writing. We also say there should be no set goals or any stress on performance; the focus should be on the sensory-motor development and the social development of the child. A play school develops age-appropriate behaviour at the right time. Besides the activities and the learning process that is taken up in an extremely professional way in most playschools, here are a few add ons, which only The Little Kingdom Nursery School can boast of.

A play school should have ample space for the child to breathe & play freely. Most playschools are started from an old residential place with a few rooms. The Little Kingdom is the only place in town that was built purely as a playschool on a vacant piece of 1100 sq yards of land in 2003. Besides the classrooms, a play area, activity hall (comprising of shopping area, bank, post office & McDonalds), splash pool & ball pool area, emphasis was also on the lawn where the kids would want to inhale fresh. An area of about 600 yards has been left landscaped for the young ones.

The safety of the young ones is the highest law at The Little Kingdom. A full time security guard ensures school vehicles are parked inside the school gate before the children alight from/ board them. Every child is dropped and picked up from inside the school premises, a practice which keeps them away from the risk of the ever increasing traffic accidents.

Architecture of the school was taken care of by none other than Mr. Neeraj Dhingra, a renowned name in the country when it comes to playschools. Every small detail has been taken care of, keeping in mind the precious little babies. The earthquake proofing, the size of the risers (steps), no sharp edges anywhere in the building/ furniture, colourful classrooms, toilet sizes to name a few.

The staff at The Little Kingdom Nursery School is very affectionate and loving and believes their first duty towards children is to make them happy. They believe in the thought, ‘If we have failed to make them happy, we have wronged them; no other good they may get can make up for that’.

There are a lot of activities planned and executed every month, with the parents being kept in the loop through the regular notices and/ or the text messages being forwarded. The stress is not just on the academics, but also on personality development and confidence building.

We understand that the kids are too young to be compared or judged, but its about time for them to face the interviews in the bigger schools. Our Littolians have faired pretty well & have cracked the selection process in the most ‘sought after schools’ in town, with the average candidates getting selected in the past ten years being about 93 percent.
