Readiness program will start
Readiness program will be started in all schools to bring the pre-primary children closer to the school, teachers and classmates. Due to the Corona crisis, children have been away from schools for almost two years. Due to this the habit of studying in classes, socializing with new classmates and getting used to the environment outside the home has been given up. In such a situation, school readiness program will be started for the children. Under this, children from class one to three will be given a home-like environment in the school. Emphasis will be given on mental and emotional development of children from classes I to VIII.
