The younger years play a crucial role in a child’s personality development as their foremost experiences form their perceptions of the outer world. Nalapad Nest is the foundation ground of our future achievers. In line with our motto of “Nurturing Hope”, the Nest thrives on strong partnership between the parent, the facilitator and the child. The Early Years Foundation Stage framework program at the Nest provides experiential learning to the young children focussing on their all-round development.
The safe, secure and multi sensorial preschool environment provides a ground for the children to build on their experiences and develop essential life skills like critical thinking, problem solving and social skills. At the Nest, we perceive each child as a unique individual with unique needs, unique learning styles and unique learning abilities.
