Teacher’s Training– Workshops for teachers enable and equip them with modern pedagogical tools for sensitization and better handling of students. The teachers attend workshops on regular basis and bring home the rich experiences for the pedagogical growth of self and institution.
Parental Guidance– Parents are our predominant stake holders. Parents and Educators together are instrumental in the child’s growth and development. It is very important that a trust must be established between the facilitator and the parents.
