My son was put into play school at 1 year and 4 months since my wife works from home and she wanted 3 hours of uninterrupted time. We are in Bangalore. So kids as young as 2 years are ready to go to school. so go ahead and put your daughter in play school. it would be better to put her in play group or something, so the school is more committed to teach her something. if you want to reduce expenses, put her in day care for 3 hours. still she will enjoy socializing and playing with other kids of her age.

Hi sudipta, I did have the same fear like you, until I discovered Little Einsteins Preschool at Koyambedu, chennai. This is a second home, and the curriculum are based on activities through the multiple intelligence concept. My daughter blossomed in just 5 months she comes home with lots of songs to sing, some special fact that surprises me on the concept taught to her. Writing has become her favourite as they have innovative worksheets to enhance writing. Also the school has universal activities celebrated at her school. so everyday she looks forward to going to school. wish you all luck.

As far as ur second q is concerned it will put pressure on ur child. My answer to it will b it will take away most of ur burden as they will b teaching so many facts in play way method (popularly knwn as Montessori method) that the stress related to will b done away with. for example- festivals of India. Most play schools celebrate festivals by asking children to dress accordingly. Like for Id children will have to dress up in Muslims attire, for baisakhi they will be wearing traditional sakwar Kurta , churidar etc. so the best part is child would learn abt these festivals n their significance b simply dressing up n actually being a part of d celebration. The teachers would explain in as simple words as possible the relevance n significance of those festivals. Similarly drawing, coloring, thumb printing, veg printing spray painting building blocks etc would be the methods used to teach numbers, alphabets n other concepts. for example coloring a Joker for alphabet J.. So they mite b given a joker's pic to colour with crayons. A child will b taught to hold crayon, n a pencil. They will b taught rhymes. U wud enjoy watching ur child reciting rhymes with actions. children r taught mannerism like how to respect elders, parents,teachers n even household helps, how to greet them; how to eat with table manners. They r taught abt body parts, their function, n days months etc. other things to improve their general knowledge. So All d best! Fasten ur seat belts, n go for it!

Hi dear SUdipta! Well ur child is just at d right age to b a part of a play group.. Don't rob ur child of all d fun she is going to have in play school. it will prepare her for formal schooling. Ur child will get used to staying away frm u for 3-4 hours. She will learn to be in a setting n b a part of d larger group. she will learn to follow instructions, have meals independently, learn new words to her vocab, play in a group, learn alphabets n numbers shapes etc. thru play way method. Infact u will also enjoy this phase, n will have 3-4 hrs in hand for ur self. The very fact that ur daughter is climbing d next rung of d ladder n is learning new things everyday wud give u satisfaction n happiness.

Hi Sudipta.. i think the right age for a child is 2+.. let her start with play school first and then followed by a formal school. Play school will not only give her the confidence to communicate, play, share with other kids but it will also set her routine of getting up early in the morning and going to bed at the right time at night.. its the right time to hit the play school... go,,, run,,, and all the best !!!
