In this new age of motherhood i used to hear about how difficult school admissions were. A good parenting idea was to start looking for a decent school as soon as one confirmed pregnancy.
I found it crazy but nevertheless I was was keen upon a school. It was a mind set or the good reviews that always kept my inclination towards it.
(I wouldn't name the school)
As time came closer for my toddler to be admitted in playgroup. I knew where my heart had directed and without any delay I had done the needful.
I don't believe much in fate because that is only for the lucky ones. I am a firm believer of hard work that will surely one day pay off.
As a mother I've always tried to keep my toddler engaged into the study-play kind of a routine.
A saying i used to always hear and believe is "start young," "the sooner the better." And to be honest, it wouldn't be possible if my son was not interested. He enjoys books and he loves the art of life.
Of course every mother believes that there is brilliance in their child and with the right amount of exposure and teaching techniques. It will all direct the child into a suitable field. The foundation years are the most important years and that's how selecting a right school for your child is one of the basic things that one needs to sort.
But what does one do when the school you had such high regards for is a sucker for the wrong things. The principals, the morals are based upon unnecessary pressures of life. I understand how keeping standards is one thing but the other of looking into the past of the families. Digging into the financial status and making meaningless quotas are expected only in India.
A sad truth that I have finally made my peace with...
All the bollywood movies and their stories about how the educational system in this country sucks is truly the case. I feel sad to accept this fact which won't stop at the preschool level.
