I am a mother of two daughters and I have been looking for play schools near me, for some time. When my elder daughter turned 2.5 years old, I felt an unusual pressure from my friends and family to get her admitted in a good play school. I kept wondering what a good play school actually means. I had always known only a few play schools near me, which have a very good brand value and are known since a very long time. I had no clue how to find out about schools and their facilities.
While looking for play schools near me, I realized how difficult it is for parents to get their child admitted in school. I had to face a lot of difficulties like-
- Going from one school to another
- Keep waiting at the reception of the school
- Not receiving proper information
- Travelling long distances to reach a school
- No update or notification from the school
Eventually, I applied to a few play schools; these were the nursery wings of the big day schools. After filling the applications I expected prompt replies from the school near me, which I never received. I thought all the processes would be smooth, but my expectation was absolutely proven wrong. I even faced rejection and dismissals from many schools. Some problems which I faced after filling applications are-
- No reply if school is contacted
- No notification on the first list for admissions
- No explanation or answer for being rejected
- Lack of transparency in admission process
I was absolutely disappointed by school’s conduct and felt hopeless for my daughter’s admission. Going through all the bad experiences, I restarted my search for best play schools near my house. I looked at my daughter’s interests first and then went through all the facilities and services a school could provide. I scanned area near me and went for schools according to the provisions. Now, I know how important it is to check for facilities of the school. My daughter is extremely interested in art and craft activities, so I finally opted for a school with good creative room and teachers who talented enough.
I feel that I am a happy mother, that I admitted my daughter in appropriate play school nearby me. She is having a good time and she keeps showing me her artwork. I would have regretted admitting her in a big day school; there she might not have received so much love and attention. Now, I know about each play school near me, I can also guide other parents about choosing play school. Hope you have a good experience and a good time while looking admitting your child.
