Hi Amita! I too faced a similar problem. I took admission in one of the best school here in indore. Unfortunately it didn't work out and I found out that my son was kind of scared, irritated and not willing to study. And my sis in law had taken an admission in a school that had just newly opened - it had been just 3 years. But their method of teaching is very good that I too got impressed. Nowadays kids are very and I mean very curious. They don't take in whatever we feed their minds with. They always have a why. So I would say that always ask that school that you are seeking admission - what is their method of teaching, lot of schools also do lot of activities to male learning interesting. Do not hesitate to ask for a demo. Coz kids age 3 and above always like to learn it the colourful and playful way.

Hi Amita, everyone has suggested good points here. I would also like to add check out the teacher quality. After all they make a huge difference to your child. What is the school's teacher training program is an important aspect of it.

Hi Amita, you could ask the school to show you around, see what facilities they have, whether the sections for older children and younger ones is separate or not, and also how a time table looks to give you an idea of how much the school stresses on academics and how much they focus on sports etc.

Hello Amita, I agree with all things Nishant has said here. You could also look at some other specifics. for eg: if you are working, you could pick a day boarding school. Also, see what board you would eventually want your child to be in.. international, icse, or cbse. this will further narrow down your choices.

Hi Amita, some ideas that I stuck by were how close is the school to my house, what kind of extra curriculars are there in the school, and also the general reputation of an institution which comes from feedback from parents. hope these will be of help to you too.
