Getting Your Child Ready for Nursery Admission Success 2024


There are few things that can ease the pressure while commencing  a voyage of  learning at the best CBSE schools in Pune

PreCursor: This is the first and most vital stage for the parents during Nursery Admission.

Set and prioritize the expectations for your child’s schooling. 

Clarity of thoughts and expectations: Based on the PreCursor consider the schools keeping the following points in mind

Proximity of the school, Student-centric infrastructure, co-curricular activities,  and teaching methodology.

Prepare a child for separation and accommodating to a new atmosphere:

Solo School Visit will be beneficial for the parents to the school campus with a prior appointment. This exercise will help them brief and make the child mentally ready about how the school looks like.

The child creates a visual image of the campus and in turn, makes the child mentally and emotionally ready for the day.

Impress fundamentals: Familiarisation not only aims to make a child academically soundness but also fundamental skills like social interactions, independent age-appropriate working, and navigating their emotions in a new atmosphere.

Introduction of set routine: A set and defined age-appropriate routine helps the child be organized and helps in becoming an independent and self-reliant individual.

A few amendments can be made with passing time to get a little flexibility and adaptability. 

Positive Approach: Most importantly a positive approach towards the admission process in a competitive environment is the need of the hour. It is a collaborative effort that needs openness, tolerance, and persistence.

What is the Difference Between Primary School and Secondary School?


Primary school and secondary school are two distinct levels of education with differences in terms of age groups, curriculum, and overall focus. Here are the key differences between primary and secondary schools:


Primary School

The primary school includes students from around 5 to 11 years old. It covers the early stages of formal education and focuses on building foundational skills. The primary school curriculum is designed to provide a broad educational foundation. It often includes subjects such as mathematics, English or language Arts, Science, Social Studies, and Physical Education. The focus is on building basic literacy and numeracy skills. Primary schools lay the foundation for a child's future education, providing essential skills and knowledge that prepare them for more advanced learning in secondary school and beyond. The educational experiences during these formative years are crucial for a child's academic and personal development.


Secondary School

A secondary school, often referred to as a high school, is an educational institution that provides education to students in the age range of approximately 11 to 18 years old. The specific age range can vary depending on the country and its educational system.

The curriculum in secondary schools is more specialized and in-depth compared to primary education. Students study a range of subjects, including mathematics, sciences, languages, social studies, and often have the opportunity to choose elective courses based on their interests. Secondary schools play a crucial role in the overall development of students, providing them with the knowledge, skills, and experiences needed for further education, careers, and personal growth.
